      Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

      The instructions make clear you need special hydrating soil and need to WAIT until capillary action is established before planting your plant!
      I just cut a strip out of the top plastic grid, and inserted about a 2" x 18-24" strip of capillary cloth (http://www.gardeners.com/buy/capillary-matting/40-385.html?start=1&q=wicking). THe soil starting hydrating immediately and my tomato plants took off. This combination works as well as Olla pots which I also highly recommend, but is cheaper and since plastic, more durable.

          This is our second order for more kits. The difference between our containers with the self-watering kit and those that don't have one is huge, so now we are putting the kits in all the containers. Great producdt!

                The self waterers are easy to assemble and really help in this TX heat. I am seeing a difference in the looks of the plants with and without self waterers! I am trying to change over to all self waterers, given our climate. Used for several months. I would recommend giving them a try. Just wish there was another size between small and large, as there are some "in-between" pots I can't use either in.

                Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

                I was so disappointed in this. I emptied my front flower pots clean, followed the video exactly and the top of the tube would not shut! So it was hard not to get dirt down it and I could not get the rubber hose to bend in. IN fact, it was way too long and I had to shorten it.

                      I bought the smaller size because my pot was not bigger than 14 inches. However, the smaller one is too small for my pot. It doesn't even touch the sides in the bottom of my pot. Now I will have to get the larger size and pay for shipping again. I followed the size dimensions in the description when I order the smaller one.

                        I am disappointed in the conversion watering kit the water is still in the bottom container and my plants are dry at top of planter. I called your customer care line and a very nice lady mentioned about the special soil that can be used with the conversion watering kit and that some people have used regular potting soil and it has worked well but that has not been the case for everyone. She herself has used the conversion kits and said that it does make a difference to use the special soil purchased from you folks. My planters are all planted and to change soil at this point I believe 1. would be a lot of work as I have large urns and2. would destroy all the plants and I would have to start all over again for this season. So in the future it might be helpful to explain on these products that they might not work if you do not purchase your potting soil. it certainly is not worth the money if I have to keep watering my plants although I have to admit the plants do not need as much water but the plants at the top can seem wilty and dry I think you should offer a reduced price for the soil to any one purchasing the conversion kits or at least give the ratio of soil to mix on our own so we can good results . these conversion kits are not inexpensive for what they are
