Plants growing very well in containers

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Drains Well
  • Holding Capacity
  • Lightweight
  • Sturdy
  • Weather Resistant

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Outdoor Plants

    Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

    The well appears to hold water for three or four days, probably because it dispenses the water below
    the plants and there isn't the evaporation that you get from overhead watering. Plus the watering is
    coming from a deeper level.

      Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

      I love these reservoirs. They reduce the amount of time spent watering container plants and I don't worry when I go on vacation about the plants dying from lack of water. The only problem I had was that my dogs think the plastic is a play toy. I had 4 containers on the back patio and had just finished planting with flowers. I went inside and when I came back out, 3 of the 4 containers had no plants in them. They were lying on the ground in a huge pile of potting soil. The tubes to the reservoirs had been removed from the containers and were strewn all over the back yard and had been chewed up. Still love these, but if you've got dogs, keep an eye on them! I still use the reservoirs for plants in the front yard.

            I have a large front landscaped area that I wanted to put large pots in with flowers. Since I am in and out of town a lot, watering consistently is a problem for me. These inserts for my pots solve that problem. I can water once a week and my plants are fine. Works great for me.

              Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

              The only downside when using this in an outdoor location, is that you have to drain the water out in the fall and then cover the pot in plastic so that it doesn't refill and crack the pot.

                  I bought these self watering kits because I knew I'd be traveling a lot in the summer and nightly watering wouldn't happen. They worked like a charm!

                    We've had a lot of rain in my area, but on a sunny day my tomatoes are still looking good. Thinking the water reserve is giving water on a sunny day.

                          Oh the joy of not seeing all the water draining out over the deck on a hot summer day and instead collecting nicely in the reservoir and keeping the soil moist. Such a simple but great investment.
