The Lechuza, "Self Watering" Plant containers were a hit at the Independent Garden Center Show, Chicago.
Garden Center TV: Post #5
The reason why I have failed with some of my container plants is because of improper watering.
Sometimes I over-watered my plants and "killed them with kindness" and other times I didn't give them enough water and they died a slow, thirsty death.
I was intrigued when I saw an ad in a garden trade magazine for "self-watering" plant containers by Lechuza.
I wasn't paying attention to the self watering feature at first, I just liked the way they looked.
Once I noticed that the planters were designed with a sub-irrigation system, I was curious to see them up close.
Take a look at this short video where I interview Anton Van Zevenbergen, of Lechuza.
Anton explains how the planter works.
When used correctly, the planter can maintain a plant for up to 12 weeks with no human intervention!
The Lechuza self watering containers come in different styles, sizes and shapes and are available at your independent garden centers throughout the country.
The planters are lightweight and very convenient to use.
