3D model description

We all love flowers & vegitation, we all connected. In the same time we love to travel, going on vacation or simply get out of home for some time! Self-watering planters came handy when plants need certain amount of water during our absence.
Giving your plants the water they need isn't always convenient or possible, especially if you're gone a lot.

A “self watering” container doesn't actually water itself. It is a watering system using planters that contain a reservoir of water at the bottom. This reservoir connects to the area where the plant is with a soil “foot” or a fabric “wick”.

With a soil foot system, the plants send roots down into the foot, and draw up as much water as needed (SOAK TRANSFER). In a wick system, (ROPE TRANSFER) water is drawn up the wick via capillary action into the soil of the main pot. Either way, if there's water in the reservoir, the plants have access to water. This allows you water less frequently and still have healthy plants.

Self watering planters are good for a wide variety of plants – from a vigorously growing tomato plant in a patio garden to petite house plants. Just find the right size and style for your expected plant growth, and you're set. With a growing interest in urban agriculture, these pots offer a great “first gardening experience” for new growers.

There's no chance of accidentally drowning a plant, unlike with closed pots or containers that sit in a drip tray. If you accidentally add too much water, it comes out the overflow drain. (You may want to add a drip tray if you have a habit of adding too much water, or set your container outside when you water.)
