      4' Morning Glories in 4 Weeks!

      By Ollie Marie

      Pros

      • Worry-free

      Cons

      • Difficult Sizing

      Best Uses

        Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

        Last year - in the same pot and the same spot, my morning glories never got more than 5' high and made less than 10 blossoms on as many stalks! I have to travel frequently for work and, while a neighbor tried to help me keep the pot water, I knew the flowers were simply too dry.
        This year I decide I was finally going to invest in a self-water insert that I'd seen in the Gardener's supply magazine. Unfortunately, the size of the pot it fit was not clear and when it arrived, I discovered it was too small. I ordered another, larger one, thinking I'll use the small one for one of my indoor pots but I was worried that I'd waited too long to start my seeds and the season would not give them time to grow enough.
        That worry was a waste of my energy. When I returned home 4 weeks later,I was STUNNED to find that my morning glories had already reached the top of the 4' trellis in the pot!! My plants are lush, healthy & beautiful and I know that pot is going to draw a lot of comments from the neighbors.
        And was this easy to use? Once I got the correct size for the pot, I turned the unopened box over to my 11 year old son and said, "Let me know if you need help". He scoffed when he glanced an the directions and had everything set up in 5 minutes.
        I'll be eager to see how the unit lasts - I hope for many years. I know I'm n ow planning to get them for all my pots. What a fabulous idea!!

        Modify to Use in a Taller Pot

        Pros

        • Fit My Pot Perfectly

        Cons

        • Fill Tube Was Too Short

        Best Uses

          Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

          The Fill Tube was too short for my pot, but schedule 40 electrical conduit is a similar outside diameter. The conduit is readily cut to length, and with a little snipping around the hole in the platform, the conduit slides right through. Save the Fill Tube Cap for the top of the conduit, otherwise lots of pests will breed in the water below.
          The float on the fill tube gets rapidly covered in green scum and.

                    Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

                    I found that the stem on this item was too short and, even though the pot was not big, the dirt tends to cover the port when watered. It doesn't hold much water, so still needs to be watered from the top. It does help on outdoor plants to keep moist. I have the self watering troughs and love them. This product was disappointing - thought maybe I was missing a piece.

                    The front of my house is west facing which makes keeping enough water on potted plants a challenge. This insert has been a great solution, now I do not have to water the pots everyday in the summer!

                        Took me a while to put the two self-watering conversion kits to use but doing so was easy when I decided to do it. I have used the two I bought for two herb plants and will see how long the water lasts in them. If I go away, I want to know the plants will not dry out and suffer. My sister has these and she says they do a good job.
