Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

I like the design and look of the hanging planter. It works well on conserving water. The rope deteriorates in the sun and the clips that hold the rope to the planter pop out if the contents of the pot are to heavy.

    Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

    I have only been using these pots for a few weeks, so I can't attest to how well they will last.
    I like the area on the side where you can add water without disturbing the plant. They are attractive & appear to be sturdy.

    The Hanging Pots are stylish and I like the color. The water reservoir is great in keeping the plants moist. I am unhappy that the metal ring is already rusting. It looks like, I will need to paint the ring to stop it from rusting.

      Decided to get these hanging pots for when I went away on vacation. This is the first time I came back to living plants in my hanging pots!!! I was thrilled. Next year I will get the pots for my patio.

          Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

          I am so excited to have these! I ordered a few of the self-watering window boxes, and had such great success that I ordered more. Then I was struggling with hanging planters (too much water use, drained too fast, plants didn't do well, etc...) and then discovered they had the self-watering hanging baskets. I couldn't order them fast enough! I've only had them planted about a month, but sure do love them!

          Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

          I have been using these for a number of years outdoors in Zone 9. Overall I have been very pleased with the baskets.
          Due to the design with the water reservoir underneath, the soil depth is only about 5 inches, so if you are transplanting a plant growing in a deeper pot, you will have to remove the bottom portion of the roots.I have done this for plants such as lantana with no difficulty.
          The only complaint with the baskets is the cord used to hang the basket. It tends to fray over time, limiting the useful life of the basket. It would be nice if replacement cord systems were available for purchase. If not for the issue with the cords, I would have given a rating of 5.

                Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

                I have been looking for hanging pots where the plastic hangers don't break off after 1 season. These are great, easy to water and have lasted through the summer so far 1 season. Trick will be to see if they last next year too! There are 4 hanging off my pergola on the patio. The rope hangers are sturdy (unlike traditional plastic), but since they do not stand up on their own if you hang them high you must climb up to where your hook is (vs. holding underneath and hooking the hook with plastic pots).
                See attached picture..the little tree frog also loves these pots! he scared me silly when he crawled out when I was watering one evening! Hope he stays and eats some bugs!

                Functional answer to water restrictions

                Cons

                • Needs A Better Hanger
                • Too Small For Some Plants

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

                  We're under watering restrictions here in drought-struck California so I've been looking for some way to reduce the watering requirements for my fuchsias and other hanging plants. These pots seem to be the answer. I use a drip system to fill the reservoir and I've gone from twice daily watering to once every other day with no excess runoff. The plants in my first four pots are doing so well that I've order more.

                  I'm not sure about the durability of nylon hangers that come with the pots. Since I use longer hangers anyway, I immediately switched out the ropes for some homemade chain hangers. I am using the original plastic clips but I may have to replace them with zinc eyebolts.

                  Also, I wish these came in some larger sizes -- 12" is too small for some of my plants.

                  Note: As with all self-watering planters, it takes a few days for the wicking action to take over so you need to saturate the plants initially then water normally for a few days before backing off.

                    The concept is good; however, the material is not sturdy enough to hold the plants, dirt, and water as designed. I had two and one of them disintegrated under the weight, falling to the ground and leaving a big mess.
