Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

These were bought for growing tree roses. I'll be able to keep them watered more easily and can move them into the greenhouse during extreme weather. I took these to the Huntsville (AL) Botanical Gardens spring sale to show customers a great way to care for their plants.

      Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

      I am excited to convert some pots to self-watering ones. Keeping the right amount of water in big pots has always been a concern in the Kansas heat and wind. These should help keep an eye on how things are going "down deep"

          This is for a fairly small pot, of which I don't have very many. I do a lot of gardening in pots outdoors and the bigger version are much more useful to me. If you have really small pots, this would indeed be helpful.

              Good design and it functions very well. So helpful to have a back-up plan for watering pots.

                The gallon reservoir is great! Sturdy and a great help with hot Florida days. Takes the guess work out of too little or too much water. Will always have it in my pots a great help!

                  I have used these for years and love them. My outdoor plants require much less attention now. Only problem, the squirrels like to eat the top cover on the fill tube. :(

                      I refuse to use anything that isn't self-watering and I was so happy that I could keep my favorite pots and simply insert these kits. Really pay attention to sizing before you order.

                      When snapping together a few pieces broke off as did the piece on top of the tube. I took a chance and ordered the gallon size and they were excellent. So pleased I ordered two more.

                        I had purchased pots in the past that weren't self-watering. We only container garden now and without these, we end up having to water every day - and even then tend to lose many plants. With these in place, we don't have that problem - and it makes it easier when we travel as well.
