This Planter Tells You When it Needs Water

  • Grow flowers, vegetables and herbs on your deck or patio
  • Self-watering planter has an indicator to tell you when the reservoir needs refilling
  • Long-lasting, UV-stabilized polypropylene

All of our self-watering planters protect against drought, but this one does more — it has a water-level indicator that tells you when to refill the reservoir, and a convenient funnel that lets you water from the top. Made of UV-stabilized polypropylene, these planters resist cracking, chipping and fading, and the sides are braced to prevent bowing. In Terra Cotta, Stone or Green.

  • Made of UV-stabilized polypropylene
  • 3-quart reservoir and holds 22 quarts of container mix
  • 9-1/2" wide by 8-1/2" high

      By Sarah

      from Manchester, NH

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Is Self Watering

      Cons

      • Not worth the price
      • The Water Line Tube Cheap
      • Tube Not Sturdy Hard Read

      Best Uses

      • First X I Use It
      • Have Pepper Lettuce In

      lettuce and one pepper plant we will see how they do. self watering is nice. the tube you put in for checking water level is in the way of planting in the middle of the box. and when plants grow it will cover it weird place. cheaply made and wont last long . I have another that is sturdier.

      Best Uses

      • Used Under A Window Box

      I got this to catch the drips from a window box so as not to waste a single drop of water in dry old california. It fit under just right. I have had these before at my previous house in a small deck space and they lasted very well.

            Except for having to drill drain holes, this product was perfect. And that's not enough to knock it down.

            • Works Great

            Cons

              Best Uses

              • Patio Garden

              Living in Arizona, watering is critical for a plant to survive. These self-watering troughs are great! They can go about a week before getting watered, so if I go on vacation and the neighbor forgets to water, the plants still have water to get them through until I get home. I will definately order more in the fall!

              Too small a reservoir

                • Poor Instruction Sheet

                • Inside
                • Patio Garden

                I didn't expect to need to water this planter every day, but it is July and the hottest season, so perhaps that will be the case in other seasons. I suggest that the instructions include diagrams.

                Pros

                • They last

                Cons

                  Best Uses

                    These planters are sturdy, durable, maintain their coloration and the best buy for the price. I ordered several at least 6 years ago and they're still going strong. ...ordered six more this year and am about to order more. They can be used anywhere and for just about anything. I've not only planted directly into them, but placed old, worn cocoa matted window boxes in them. Plants don't dry out nearly as quickly. Herbs love them too. A GREAT BUY!

                    • Self-watering Feature

                    Best Uses

                    • Planted Lettuce And Thyme

                    I like the long size for planting two rows of leaf lettuce. The seeds have sprouted and I'm thinking they will produce a good harvest for fresh salads all summer.

                    We are using the self watering troughs to grow our vegees weed free. My wife and I enjoy how simple to use and check water levels on these products. We've been telling our friends and neighbors who are looking for an easy way to grow vegees or house plants practically work free.

                      • Flowers
                      • Used For Salad Greens

                      This is great on patio outside back door for salad greens and flowers. Too narrow for tomato plant and I don't think it's deep enough for root veggies. So far it has worked well. The full convenience on watering to be determined in the heat of summer.
