Ideal for travelers and busy plant owners, the Square Lechuza Cubico Cottage Self-Watering Resin Planter is like a real-life plant sitter. This innovative, tapered cube planter is equipped with a self-watering system that gives your plant just the right amount of water and nutrients it needs for healthy growth. Once the irrigation system is set up properly, you can leave your plant completely alone for one or more weeks at a time, depending on the size of the plant and environmental conditions. Crafted with woven plastic resin that resembles wicker, this lightweight, UV-resistant, weatherproof planter comes in several colors and sizes to match your indoor or outdoor space. The removable liner with integrated handle also makes it easy to move your plant inside or outside for watering, or replanting.
How the Lechuza Self-Watering System Works
This modern, cube-inspired 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.
