Spring is finally upon us and that means that it’s time for some of you to begin murdering plants. Quite by accident of course. I know you would never do it on purpose. A self-watering planter like this one can help. It looks like a fairly typical plant holder, but inside it has a reservoir that stores water and is capable of watering the plants automatically.
The grow chamber draws water from the reservoir when it’s needed. The end result is that your plant lives and you are also not wasting water. You can get them in a variety of colors for $20. In the kit you’ll get soil, plant food and an instruction book. It’s still at your mercy in one sense. You do have to refill the reservoir from time to time.
