Bloem Ariana Plastic Self Watering Planter, 16" Assorted Colors
The Ariana planter will quickly become one of your favorite pots because it helps keep your plants from drying out and will reduce the time you spend watering. Inside the planter there is a hidden reservoir located at the bottom of your pot and holds approx. 1”-3.5” (depending on planter size) of water. This self-watering insert keeps dirt and roots above the hidden reservoir while constantly providing healthy 'greenhouse-like' moisture through the evaporation process.
Soil Capacity: 6-gallon
TOP Width: 17.75-inches
BASE Width: 9-inches
How a Self-Watering Planter Works:
Inside Bloem's self-watering planter, the potting mix is held above the water line by a sturdy screen. The water chamber is connected by small porous channel filled with soil, which then acts as a wick. As water is used by the plant or evaporates from the surface of the soil, capillary action draws more water up from below.
The soil has just the right amount of water all the time, but also maintains air pockets, which the plant roots need to stay healthy.
