Brilliantly designed and beautiful, this self-watering planter is hand-spun from a single sheet of aluminum, then powder-coated. Large enough for some of your bigger houseplants (think zamiifolia, rubber plants, palms, philodendrons), this plant pot can be used as a cachepot (to hold plants that are already in a container), or you can plant directly into this pot to to take advantage of the self-watering feature.
Suitable for both indoor or outdoor use in a patio or covered area.

WHY WE LOVE IT
These planters are lightweight and self-watering, so if you're looking for something to hang from a suspended plant hanger or place in an elevated plant stand, they're perfect. The self-watering feature means you don't have to worry about messy water spills while keeping plants healthy and hydrated, and because the spun aluminum is so light, you won't strain hanging planters or wall and ceiling anchors suspending these planters vertically.
Materials: Powder coated aluminum
Dimensions: 8" H x 8" D
Colors: pale gray, black, peach, and aluminum
Designed and manufactured in Florida
How does the self-watering feature work?
The planter contains a 1.25" reservoir at the base divided from the main body by a perforated aluminum disc. The reservoir keeps standing water separate from the soil, preventing root rot, but evaporates back into the soil once it begins to dry out. This leads to healthier plants and easier care.
