Best Indoor Self-Watering Planters
It would be a shame if you, a devoted housewife, a woman who loves her home and has it all under control, isn’t familiarized with self-watering planters; it’s a revolutionary technology that allows you to enjoy the beauty of lovely flowers in your home or in your garden, and the benefit of not having to go grocery shopping every second day because you can grow veggies in your own kitchen. If there really is a way to have a mini garden in your own kitchen, or on the balcony, a real housewife would have it. But no worries, if you still aren’t familiar with the facts on this amazing invention, I’m here to inform you.
Think of it this way: you know how much time and effort watering takes; some plants simply need water every day, and others don’t want that much water, which means you should baby-sit them. And you don’t have that time, nor nerves to spend, right? So, how would it be to have your plants planted in a pot that takes care of the watering needs of your plants? Dream coming true, I know. The main reason why you should get self water pot is in the amazing watering mechanism: these pots come with a water container and a capillary web that transfers water in the soil, which hosts the root system of the plant in the container above. And once the roots have grown enough, they reach the water themselves and take as much as they need. This reduces the risk of overwatering the plants which is never a good thing. The market is full with amazing examples of self-watering planters from various producers, so to help you choose easier, I picked a few that I believe are the best:
The Urban Garden planter by Glowpear
Glowpear is really contributing to changing the world of gardening; gardeners and farmers really don’t look like most people would assume anymore: straw wide brim hat and jeans with straps and mud on their hands. They are more like, hipstery dressed, with a cup of coffee in their hands calmly observing the beauty of plants. When you decide to get self water pot like this one, you’ll quickly conclude that you need to get another one; these are amazing – compatible for a wide range of soil preparations, an amazing watering system, and the fanciest design ever! Plus, the brand is about to release a much smaller pot called Glowpear Mini which will be the perfect contribution to your kitchen!
The Ikea Jubel Self-Watering Plant Pot
Ikea really knows how to combine qualities into creating one worth-the-money product. The Jubel self-watering plant pot is amazing; it’s small and looks like a glass for water. It can change colours from red to green and yellow, so it really allows you to have numerous design options considering the colour of the flowers (if you’re planting any in them) or the overall colour scheme of the area where you’ll place it. The self-watering mechanism relies on a 100% cotton thread on the bottom of the inner container; the water gets sucked in as the plants need it.
Eva Solo Orchid Pot
Although it’s specifically designed for orchids, this pot looks a lot like a small apple, Orchids are a specific type of plants – they don’t need a lot of water and need a drainage system in the pot they’ll be planted in. The Eva Solo Orchid pot is designed with a nylon wick at the base so that orchids can take as much water as they need without overwatering themselves. However, there’s no reason to see these planters as made just for orchids; you can easily plant other flowers in them as well.
