Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

Ordered both sizes. Neither arrived intact and because of the size of the larger one, cost to return for credit isn't worth it. The wrapping on the units was inadequate (tube penetrated plastic wrap) and they were thrown into a large box with a few other items and some packing paper thrown on top (not around) them. I may never order from Gardener's Supply again if this is their current item and shipping quality.

        Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

        You can buy a decorative self-watering pot for the price of one of these and it is just the inside part - no pot!

        I was going to recommend these to my office for their 20+ pots, but the cost is too prohibitive.

            Wonderful item and only in use two weeks. I am hoping it will be sufficient for certain pots to comfortably survive 110-120 degree summers here in the Coachella Valley.

              I need a longer tube. The description gives the pot diameters but not the height. I have taller planters than the tube reaches so the soil just fills up the tube.

                In the hot summers in the South even huge outdoor containers require watering almost every day. This product enables us to reduce our watering schedule by two or three days...a great time saver. The plants grow better with a continuous supply of water instead of being soaked or bone dry...great product!!!

                  I bought this product because I am often not at home to water my pots. So far I am very pleased. The plants are thriving and the well holds enough water to last for several days. I haven't had them long enough to know how long they will last, but if I continue to love this product, I will be buying several more for next season as I will be adding more pots of flowers to my deck.

                          Our house was on the market during very hot, dry windy drought conditions. Having pots by the entrance with the self-watering conversion kits gave us spots of color and perky-looking plants in otherwise battered garden. Sold in 9 days to another avid gardner just moving to town!

                          Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

                          Because this unit does not come with a wicking medium to transfer the reservoir water to the planting mix, it takes a LONG time to establish the self-watering feature. Up to 2 MONTHS! So, it seems better suited for a houseplant than for a seasonal planter because by the time the self-watering actually works, you probably will be coming to the end of the growing season or the plants will be spent and you're starting over. That said, I'm on month two with a houseplant and the self-watering is still not working. So, I can't recommend it for that application either. Frustrating and the customer service at Gardeners has not been helpful - more or less "mine work fine here's a link to the directions included with the kit." Not helpful.
