It is very important that the plant is planted in the “right” pot, and it is even better when you do not have to worry if you have watered it at the right time … When the weather is warm and sunny, the water in the pots quickly evaporates. That is why the plant must be frequently watered. Often this is the case with balcony plants, as they are directly exposed to the sun. You must admit that at least once you happened to forget to water the flowers… But there is a solution that will save you from daily watering – self watering planters.
What are the advantages of these pots?
This type of pots come in a variety of shapes and can be used indoors or outdoors. Plastic or ceramic – these pots have too many advantages that will save you time and money:
- Saving up to 50% water;
- Time saving – daily watering;
- Keep the soil moist for a long time;
- Provide proper watering of plants;
- Control of the water level.
This type of pots transfer the water from the water tank into another tank in which the soil and plant are stored. Usually the water tank is located beside or under the container where the plant is located. The water level indicator shows exactly when the plant needs water. The pot contains a tube with a watering and fertilizing cap. A special absorption strip transfers the required amount of water into the soil.
These are very functional pots, which will carefully care for your plant, and you won’t have to worry!
