        3 blue self watering containers looking great hanging on/over the balcony railing of my NYC apt.
        Planted fast & east to grow light green & dark red potato vines. They brighten up the grey space & take up no room, plus great price. My piece of nature in the middle of NYC.

                    It's hard to find a planter that fits over a metal railing. Most are designed to fit wooden railings, which are much wider. This one fits like a charm. It has a beautiful, contemporary look. And the self-watering feature cuts down on the watering. After buying one, I liked it so much that I ordered 6 more!

                          I love the tube that tells me when to add water. I planted red white and blue petunias in it and they look great. can't find anything bad to say about them

                                  These railing boxes are shiny - I got 2 black - and the plants are doing well in the recommended soil. Very sturdy and solid. There is a water meter on them, but so far I've not had anything register on them, even after a big rain.

                                    Water monitors may be incorrect. When I filled the planters until the monitor registered my plants were drowning.

                                      I live in California where we are now experiencing a historic drought. I still like color. I'm still able to do so with my red railing self-watering containers with geraniums (pelagoniums) which are already fairly drought resistant. Works for me!
