African Violets – Saintpaulia
African violets produce beautiful flowers in different shades of purple.
African Violets thrive when watered from the bottom up! The upper part of the plant can rot if we water it from top to bottom. They love sitting on window sills.
Peace Lilies – Spathiphyllum
Peace lilies have dark green leaves and white flowers. They are a popular indoor plant for the home or office.
Peace Lilies need to be watered once a week. The self watering planter pot keeps them hydrated and alive!
Pothos / Devil’s Ivy – Epipremnum Aureum
Self watering planters keep the Devils Ivy plant in balance! A self watering planter avoids root rot from over watering and under watering!
Umbrella Palm – Cyperus Alternifolius
Umbrella palms love plenty of water and grow well in a self watering planter. They grow mostly in water so it is critical that their roots remain wet. When the roots get dry the plant will start to develop brown spots. A self watering planter helps to avoid this issue!
Ferns – Polypodiopsida
Ferns are very dramatic. They grow well when they have a lot of moisture and humidity. Nothing more, nothing less. They die if they are over watered or under watered! When too dry, the leaves turn yellow and over watering causes rotting. A self watering planter helps to keep your fern in a good balance.
In most cases, Ferns die either because of under-watering or over-watering. The leaves turn yellow and dry when Ferns confront the problem of under-watering. Whereas on the other hand, over-watering can cause rotting of the roots and yellowing of the leaves.
