The Features I LOVE:
The filling well is large enough so that you can actually see what the water level is without having to stick your finger in (I hate that I have to do that with my other pots), and it really does hold enough water to last about two weeks.
The looks of the planter is very pleasing to the eye. It looks much heavier than it actually is and unless you touch it, you would think that it is made of terracotta or some stone material.
The color is also very neutral and will 'sit pretty' in almost any environment.
The size is substantial. Deep enough for good root growth, wide enough to accommodate a fairly large plant, yet still small enough to fit into an average size room without being obtrusive.
I love the fact that even filled with soil and plant this planter does not get so heavy that I can't move it at will or whim. As a senior, I have to be mindful of what I lift - especially from floor level - this pot is well with-in my ability thanks to it's light weight yet very sturdy construction.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with this planter and from the looks of things either could my plant! I highly recommend this planter on all fronts!
— TO USE —
There are two parts to this planter, the main upper section, and a smaller semi-blocked off section at the bottom. This semi-blocked off section is mainly meant for water and not soil. To use this properly, you have to be able to separate the water from the soil, but connect the two with a wick of some sort.
For me, I cut a piece of 1/4" thick rope (or twine), and made sure it touched the bottom of the inner pot and stuck out a bit into the main section. Then, to prevent the soil from falling in, I cut a piece of New York Fiberglass Screening (optional), along with layering on sphagnum moss and placed them on top of the bottom. These one or two pieces help with the soil separation from water. *Then* I put in the soil and pot my plants.
— SUMMARY —
It may all seem like a lot of work, but it's really not. Find a wick, cut a circular piece, layer on moss, soil and plants in last. If you buy this, you might as well prep it and use it properly. Now, when you water, any excess will collect at the bottom, and the wick will drive water up from the bottom. Their roots won't be flooded, and it will get the water it needs when they need it. This can be very helpful on short trips away. Recommended.
The pots are 11 inches in diameter, and they will take a large plant or two smaller ones. The built in reservoir is superb. The quick view lip shows water level, and helps to prevent over and under watering. The ventilated base promotes good drainage and aeration. These pots are such a wonderful invention.

You need to buy a pot big enough that the roots are not down in the wicking area! When the roots get down there, it is time to move up a size.
