Potted plants aren’t merely attractive – they can be a great source of homegrown fruits and vegetables, and many species actually filter the air to improve indoor air quality. Lechuza’s new line of self watering planters and flower pots integrates an ingenious design to make maintaining your household plants even easier.
A water reservoir in the base of the planter is covered in a layer of “Lechuza-Pon” granules (a proprietary blend of minerals that release nutrients over time), then layered with normal potting soil. The Lechuza sub-irrigation system keeps greenery fully watered with minimal evaporation, which means wasting less water. The system also helps keep your plants healthy when you’re traveling – or if you just forget to water them.
Lechuza Self-Watering Planters are constructed of high-quality, 100% recyclable plastics, and they are available in a wide range of sizes, styles, and finishes. Some models offer removable liners to make replanting simple, and wheeled bases are available for planters that need to be moved.
A few of the most popular Lechuza models are the Delta 20 planter box (perfect for windowsills or countertop herb gardens), the Nido hanging basket, and the Cubico series for larger floor plants.
Lechuza Delta 20 (16″ x 6″ x 7″ high), $34.95.
Lechuza Nido Hanging Basket (11″ wide x 9″ high), $37.97.
