How does the self-watering planter work?
Self-watering containers are a must-have if you’re forgetful, live in a hot or dry climate, or you’re just not home very often. They’re also helpful if your containers are in an area that’s not convenient to a water spigot, such as a balcony, if you’re growing plants that don’t like to dry out, or if the plants don’t like getting their leaves wet.
A “wick” is placed inside the container, with one end in the water reservoir and the other end in the potting mix. This can be a strip of capillary mat, an absorbent tube-shaped plug or a thick string. The wick basically sucks water out of the reservoir and delivers it to the potting mix.
The planting container is designed with a section that sits inside the water reservoir, placing potting mix directly in contact with the water. Water from the wet mix in that section is pulled up into the rest of the planting container through capillary action. This is the most common design
How can I tell if a plant is struggling?
Here are some general signs: Yellowing or dropping leaves; leaf spots appear brown with a yellow halo; brown or yellow spots or brown edges on leaves; leaves are curling in; droopiness or wilting; white spots or web are showing on a plant; loss of leaf color; weak growth
I bought a plant in the grower’s pot. When should I re-pot my plant and what kind of pot to look for?
It is best to re-pot your plant as it is not supposed to live in its growing pot. If you do not see the roots poking out of drainage holes, you can wait for a few months and take your time to find a perfect pot for your green baby. Otherwise, re-pot it rather sooner than later.
Choose a pot 1-3 inches larger than the original container. Pots with drainage are always the best choice but if you found an awesome cache pot that you must have, make sure to add a good layer of rocks at the bottom of a pot to provide drainage for your plant
