When I raised the cords up, I pulled way too hard and they snapped; then my toddler pulled them all the way out. Now I have two pieces of rope instead of loops! Could I feed the ends back down through the holes? The soil will hold them in place, I assume. How critical is it, for wicking purposes, that the cords be attached inside the water reservoir? See photo. Thanks!!
- Light Weight
- Water Storage Room
- not deep enough
- Deck or patio
Am using for container fig trees that need to be moved indoors for winter. Wish there was a little less water storage space and a little more plant root room. Plenty of room to cope with our dry Texas conditions.
- Was this a gift?:
I bought these to use outdoors in New England, where 3 months is about the whole season, so I will not get much out of the self-watering feature (which I was after). They do look nice for synthetic pots, but because they hold water, I cannot leave them out in the winter, like I can with my weather-proof synthetic pots that are not self-watering.
- Miniature trees
- Water-loving plants
I haven't actually had time to judge the performance of this product, but if it is like other planters from Gardener's Supply, it will last forever. I have two dwarf lemon trees that I want to transfer to these planters. I just can't keep them watered in this heat, and the huge water reservoir should help with that problem.
I wanted a large planter and the fact that this one was self-watering seemed to be a plus. However, after I received the planter, I read the instructions for use and found that the planter could not be left outside in freezing weather. This is a real disadvantage and had I known this ahead of time, I would not have bought this product. Since I had already recycled the boxes used for packing, I could not return the planter. Temperature restrictions on a product should be listed in the product description.
