    Comments about : Viva Self-Watering Balcony Railing Planter:

    I have had a very difficult time finding a planter design that works well for a very narrow railing. These are sturdy, well-designed to adjust to whatever size railing you have. They are attractive and sturdy.

      My wife uses this as her herb station. She has started them inside and in the spring will move the unit outside.

        Comments about : Viva Self-Watering Balcony Railing Planter:

        I bought the Viva Self-Watering Balcony Railing Planter about 2 months ago and I am very disappointed with the purchase. It was working great for the first few weeks, it looked great and my plants were going well. However only three weeks after I had gotten it the self-watering feature stopped working, the gauge never moved no matter how much water I put in and so I could never tell if I was putting too much or too little. I also couldn't tell if it was just the gauge that stopped working or the feature stopped working altogether, so I don't know if my plants would continue to be be watered with extra water I give them. As such, I have needed to water the plants almost every day, defeating the purpose of getting a self-watering pot. I am so disappointed since I go on regular overseas trips and don't want my plants to die while I am gone. I will need to find another alternative to this planter.

            These planters are attractive and vibrant color ! They add color to your home, and are a great conversation piece . Beautiful planters that everyone loves. It's unique design allows you to hang them easily , while eliminating messy ties or brackets for other winded planters ...double check the width of your railing to make sure it will fit ....if they don't fit.....there are other designs By this Comoany , that come in vibrant colors , that you can use too.

                Love that I don't have to water as often. Love the moisture level gauge. Appreciate the plugs in the bottom that let out excess water.

                  My neighbor who also bought this box had the same problem with the measuring stick. It doesn't work, but before we realized that we watered and watered and doubtless rotted the roots of the plants. I love the look of the box but the watering stick was a disaster. Had to throw out six new plants and start again.
