Be sure to add a piece of rope reaching up into the soil and down into the water reservoir. The water can climb up the rope as needed.

As with any self-watering planter, the idea is to let the plant water itself by either wicking water when needed or through a slow drip irrigation system of sorts. But you don’t have to spend a ton of money on specialty expensive pots. If you want a long-lasting planter that will continue to provide adequate water for your favorite plants, this one is perfect for you!
