3D model description
Plantr is an aesthetic water sustaining plant container, meant as indoor desk / table accessory. The whole concept works on basis of capillary action that occurs when soil / porous material absorbs and holds water. This allows the user to water the plant only once a week or so, and be carefree.
3D printing settings
The Plantr is very easy to use and maintain. Just fill inner container with soil / fertilizer / plant-gel and plant, place the inner container in the outer container and fill water in the outer container through the provided gap. The water will slowly be absorbed inside the soil of the inner container and the plant will use this water gradually over a few days. Depending on what type of plant is placed in the Plantr the user has to water only once a week or once in two weeks, re-water only when there is little or no water left in outer container. (tip: filling bottom with a small 1cm thick layer of gravel will help in aeration of roots)
