This product lets me have herbs outside with my busy life. Year after year I would kill my herbs because I forgot to water them. NOT NOW

    Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

    I bought these conversion kits a year ago and it makes watering my plants a breeze. I received one of those gift planters with 6 different house plants in the same pot. I divided them into 6 pots, each with one of these kits. The directions indicate using a soilless mix, which I highly recommend because I needed to find bigger pots to accommodate both the plant and the soil (the soil itself is practically weightless). I have used this mix for years, before it became popular, and it works great. You can buy it premixed or make your own (just google it). It's important to keep watering plants as normal until the roots make their way to the bottom. Most of my plants reached down fairly quickly after adjusting to the repotting, a couple of months maybe, while one of them has been planted for about 7 months and has still not figured it out.
    What has been absolutely fascinating is that one plant likes a lot of water and I have found that the soil is ALWAYS wet. Others like to be a little dryer, and the soil stays relatively dry. I worried about this one plant being wet all the time, but it's growing like crazy and the leaves are huge and colorful. I'm wondering if a regular planting soil would work in the same way - not going to try it.
    I've read some of the negative reviews and have some recommendations. The directions are easy to follow, but you have to read them CAREFULLY and follow them exactly. As far as the corks at the bottom of the water level indicator, if they don't work just stick a piece of styrofoam on the end. It DOES take time for the roots to find their way down, so these work best for houseplants. I would also think that starting with a young plant with not a big root system would work better.
