These self-watering systems can keep plants hydrated for weeks at a time, depending on plant variety and weather conditions.
Reduce Water Use by 50% with Self-Watering Pots
It has been calculated that self-watering reservoirs cut water usage in half. This, in turn, can actually save plants. When water is poured in the reservoir, roots wick moisture up only when needed. This eliminates root rot while also nourishing root systems. How? When water is directly poured into soil, essential minerals get leached out - minerals essential to good plant health. When reservoirs are used, saturated soil that creates mineral runoff is all but eliminated. And in addition to keeping plants healthier and well-watered, less water is actually used, not to mention staff time and expense can be cut dramatically.
