— 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.
