Home / Self-Watering Planter FAQ’s

How does the self-watering planter work?

Our self-watering planter is designed to allow your plant to drink only what it needs. Your plant goes in the top portion of the planter, while the bottom portion holds a water reservoir. A wick runs between the top and bottom portion, acting as a vehicle for your plant to suck up the water using capillary action.

How long can I go between waterings?

How long a tray full of water lasts depends on the plant and its environment (sunlight, humidity etc). Depending on these factors, the self-watering planter can keep your plant watered for 3-7 days.

What is the pot made of?

Our planters are made of a blend of FSC-certified, sustainably sourced bamboo, melamine resin, and corn starch. 

Can I use it outside?

Our pots are best used indoors, since the bamboo can fade in the sun over time.

Can this go in a plant hanger?

Yes! Our planters work great for hangers, since the self-watering feature makes it so that you don’t have to water your hard-to-reach plants as often.

Will this planter fit on a plant stand?

Yes, but check the size of your plant stand first to make sure it can accommodate a 5” base pot.

Is this pot good for growing herbs?

Yes, herbs grow well in our self-watering planter. Use it with basil, mint, and any herb you want to snip from when cooking.

What are the dimensions?

The self-watering planter dimensions are Top: 5.5” Bottom: 4.5” Height: 5.5".

Is the bottom removable?

Yes, the top and bottom portions of the self-watering planter fit snugly with a locking mechanism.
