Equally at home in a modern office or boho loft, the Ainslie Self-Watering Planter's simple conical design belies the patented technology within. While traditional planters rely on humans to decide when their plants need water, our self-watering planters take the guesswork out of the equation. Our patented sub-irrigation insert helps transfer water directly to the roots of your plant through our specially formulated aeration stones, mimicking how plants absorb water in nature. Designed in Brooklyn and made from the highest quality ceramic, our self watering planters ensure fast growth and healthy plants.
Measures 7" Wide x 5" High. Inside Diameter is 6 1/2".
The aesthetic of the terracotta sutton is 10/10. I have found that my Anthurium Pedatoradiatum is so thirsty that it drains the reservoir in a few days, so I would use this style for succulents or cacti, and choose a Franklin for aroids. That said the technology works, just would want a bigger reservoir here.
I have yet to fully utilize the benefits of the pot (as suggested 1 month of top watering) but overall has been a pleasant pot to have!
This pot feels incredibly sturdy and high quality. I’ve been using it for about 2 months to grow my jungle velvet calathea because prayer plants are usually pretty tricky, but once the roots grew into the pot the guesswork was taken out of the equation. It’s put out multiple new leaves in this time and looks great!
Beautifully simple and sturdy ceramic planter that has done wonders for my needy Hemigraphis exotica - a tricky plant to keep happy if on a 7+ day watering cycle, as they are quickly stressed once their soil dries out. With the Ainslie Self Watering Pot, which sits comfortably in a homemade twine plant hanger, I’m able to both topwater this plant and give it an extra boost by filling the reservoir, which keeps the Hemigraphis from needing as frequent of waterings. Note how large the foliage is getting compared to previous growing conditions!
I am a big fan of this planter. I prefer to use self-watering / bottom watering methods whenever possible, and there aren't a lot of modern, sleek options out there. I'm thrilled I found this -- my polka dot plant looks fantastic in it! The one thing worth considering is that because of the way the system is designed, you will need to hold the upper pot while filling the reservoir (or potentially set it on a bowl. If you were to just set it down on the counter you would disrupt the soil in the planter. Small price to pay IMO for an affordable, versatile self-watering planter!
