Self Watering Planter
Container gardening can be both beneficial and detrimental to a plant; you can easily control the surrounding soil environment, but plant roots can become too dry or too wet depending on watering habits. Self-watering planters offer an alternative way to water the plant, with many benefits. Soil within the pot perches above a base water reservoir where the plant’s roots can stretch down out of the soil and into the water for nourishment
Water is stored in an inner chamber in the pot and is fed to the roots by the capillary action of potting mix (Mixture of soil and manure). Water is separated from the soil by an aerated screen which also helps to oxygenate the roots. Water can be filled through a funnel attached to the pot and water level indicated by a float system.
