Best Self-watering Pots for Your Indoor Plants
If you have been planning to add plants to your indoor space to give it a fresher and summery ambiance or you’ve been planting for a while now but having trouble keeping them alive and growing due to your busy schedule, then self-watering pots are the solution to your problem.
What are Self-watering Pots, and how does it work?
A self-watering pot is a container that consists of two parts; the outer pot that serves as a water reservoir at the bottom and the inner pot where you place the plant. The inner pot, also known as the planter, has holes in the bottom part and others have a string connected to the water reservoir. The string serves as the wicking mechanism that transfers the stored water to the growing medium to keep them hydrated.
Self-watering pots are suitable for your indoor plants, and if you are the busy type, it makes your life easier by filling the water reservoir once in a while and reduces the trouble of watering your plants according to their needs. Besides the benefit of time-saving, self-watering pots is much preferable to directly spraying water to your plants. The hole on the planter will serve as a drainage system of excess water and provide your plant with the right amount of moisture. The water reservoir in the outer pot also benefits your plant. The water is transferred directly to the root and not on the leaves, which is more beneficial to avoid developing fungus and plant disease.
