Create something extraordinary with the Rectangle Lechuza Cararo Self-Watering Indoor Planter. Designed so you can make beautiful arrangements, the concealed wheels in this planter also allows you to use it as a living divider to partition a room in a unique and modern style. Its integrated water reservoir holds up to two-and-a-half gallons of water and keeps your plants perfectly hydrated so you don't have to worry about over or under watering them. A gauge lets you know when the reservoir is empty so you can always make sure your plants are receiving the water they need. Constructed from strong and durable polypropylene, this planter is surprisingly lightweight, as well as shatterproof and UV-resistant to help prevent fading. Its glossy finish comes in your choice of color and allows you to easily accent your existing decor.
How the Lechuza Self-Watering System Works
This modern planter uses a self-watering, sub-irrigation system to nourish your plant. The included separator piece forms a reservoir in the base of the removable planter liner. A supply shaft with water level indicator runs along the inside edge of the liner, making it easy to add water and liquid fertilizer while maintaining complete watering control. A layer of LECHUZA-PON granulate drainage material lies on top of the separator and regulates the amount of water your plant receives - no more rotten roots!
After potting your plant with soil on top of the pon drainage material, you will need to water the plant from above through the soil for the first 12 weeks. Each time you water, fill up the supply shaft, too, and don't forget to add liquid fertilizer every other watering. After that, the plant roots will have grown deep enough to soak up water from the reservoir below. All you have to do is refill the water supply shaft when the level indicator reaches the "Min" position. At this point, your plant will be entirely self-sufficient for 1-12 weeks, depending on the size of your planter and plant. If using outdoors, remove drainage plug from base to release excess rain water while still maintaining reservoir supply.
