Bloem’s Lucca planters come with an attached basin, so you only have to water from the top down until the root system is established, making growing easy. Make summer easier with self-watering planters that can help plants survive in drought conditions!

How do you do it? Here are the 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Fill your Bloem Lucca planter with soil and plant your arrangement of live goods as you would normally.

Step 2: Water plant from the top of the planter until the root base is established. (This will allow for the root system to grow into the watering tray. In the meantime, the watering tray will act as a regular saucer capturing excess water).

Step 3: Once the root system is established (3-4 weeks), fill watering tray with clean water or fertilizer enhanced water. Root system will wick the water up for proper hydration. Once tray is empty refill as necessary!
