Cute factor; this is a winner. Easy of use; not bad. Construction; almost perfect except that it's water hole door can't be closed 100%. Science behind it; sound but seems like Lechuza's self-watering planters set the standard. According to the Lechuza's instructions (which you can find on their site), fill up the planters to the max on the indicator, then once the water level drops to min, wait 2~3 days (i.e. dry phase) before refilling again. Also, for every 4th watering, water from the top (i.e. like the conventional way), this is to balance the salt within the soil. All these are missing from the Grobal instructions. I'm adapting Lechuza's instructions to use on my Grobal. I have quite decent luck with growing succulent on the Grobal - which is categorized as a very HARD plant to grow according to Grobal. I let water run dry for a few weeks at a time too & during this time, I water from the top once a week or so. Quite a few succulent died already but the ones that remain (including an Aloe Vera plant) seem to be doing very good. I even got the grey color one that has since been discontinued (bummer). If you're serious about growing plants, get the Lechuza one instead. If you love the looks of the Grobal, then you're sold already.

I'll start with the pros:
Nice design, Suits my propose. (Which is why I chose this tiny pot)

Cons: Its just cheap plastic, not ceramic or anything stylish. I expected more durability for a designer product. I'm worried about scratches.

Its overpriced for A cheap plastic pot.

The "Grobal soil" looks like a common Coco Peat and Perlite mix. I threw out three pounds of that last month.
What would have been useful to me was the "Grobal Food" packs, which I did not get any of in the box. (I'll need to buy plant food)

So what I'm left with is a cheap piece of plastic that I will definitely not buy again unless the price dropped to at least $5.

I'm looking for an alternative, or maybe a factory source in China.
The Grobal is not all that it seems.

Don't waste your money! This is a marketing gimmick to try and sell a great idea in 'self watering' to consumers. Karim Rashid puts out yet another piece of landfill in a product whose only real attempt is at sizzle, because there is no substance to this design. The 'self watering' system only succeeds at creating soggy, moldy soil that very quickly rots the roots of your plants. Maybe you could use the Grobal to grow mushrooms . . .

I had high hopes for a life of ease with this planter. Unfortunately, it keeps the soil moist all of the time so I'm assuming there's now root rot. Also, it's pretty small.
