Looking for an easy, efficient way to care for your potted plants? Look no further than the LECHUZA self-watering systems. These innovative planters allow you to go up to 12 weeks without regular watering while keeping your plants hydrated and happy. Available in a variety of contemporary styles, these self-watering planters can be used to create lush and attractive focal point.
Q: How do LECHUZA self-watering planters work?
Simply water your plants from up top for the first 12 weeks. This time allows the roots to grow into the water reservoir where they can drink as needed.
The LECHUZA -PON aerates the roots for optimum plant growth. Each planter comes with the appropriate amount of LECHUZA-PON needed to plant with a combination of substrate and potting soil.
Once this process is complete, you can start to utilize the self-watering system. Watch the water level indicator as it moves to “min” and add water as needed.
Q: Can you explain how to set up a new self-watering planter?
Not only does LECHUZA’s self-watering system make caring for plants easy, but even planting for the first time is a snap. Simply place the full amount of LECHUZA-PON substrate, included in each all-in-one set, in the bottom of your planter to form an even layer. Then, add some potting soil and your plant, and you’re ready to go!
Each LECHUZA planter comes with easy-to-follow instructions, so whether you’re a first-time user or an experienced gardener, we’ve got you covered.
Q: Can you tell us about the planting substrate?
LECHUZA-PON is a plant substrate made from pumice, zeolites, and lava, and comes with each LECHUZA planter.
The main benefits of this substrate are:
- Water supply control
- Delivery of added nutrients
- Optimal oxygen for your plant’s roots
Q: What do you suggest for outdoor & indoor planter use?
Each LECHUZA planter is outfitted with a drainage plug, which makes them perfect for both outdoor and indoor use.
Q: Do you ever need to clean out the sub-irrigation system?
Another great thing about LECHUZA-PON is that it acts as a barrier between the soil and the water reservoir. As a result, it prevents soil from getting into the water supply and keeps your sub-irrigation system clean.
Q: What are the benefits of using a self-watering planter?
Using self-watering planters provides many benefits. First and foremost, the self-watering system saves time! The water reservoir stores enough water to keep your plants hydrated for up to 12 weeks. This means less time spent painstakingly looking after your plant because the planter is doing it for you! Even better, when the time does come to add water, you’ll know, thanks to the handy water-level indicator. This indicator takes the guesswork out of watering by telling you exactly when to refill the reservoir.
Add in the LECHUZA-PON substrate, and LECHUZA offers a system that will turn you into a pro-gardener and keep your plants thriving.
