Have fun with plants! Vertical gardening is now within reach of every gardener from brown thumbs to green and from beginners to professionals. Simply attach hook to wall, fence or chain link, and hang planter up. Totally modular system works in a dense 10 in. x 12 in. wide grid, or a 12 in. x 12 in. grid for lower cost per square feet and greater coverage. The Living Wall Planter is made from 100% HDPE2 recycled milk jugs, known to be one of the safest plastics for food contact and containing no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA. The Living Wall Planter is self watering. Simply fill Living Wall Planter integrated watering well with approximately one liter of water keeps plants watered for up to two weeks. The basin functions as a water-conserving reservoir that allows roots to drink from the bottom while breathing through the sides. Plants have stronger, healthier roots . The Living Wall Planter is vented front and back, allowing roots to breathe, increasing evaporation,and minimizing overwatering. The Living Wall Planter works beautifully indoors and out. Because the sides breathe, the bottom does not need drainage, which means floors and walls stay dry indoors. All Kind of Plants thrive in the Living Wall Planter, especially plants that typically grow in containers like native perennials, flowering annuals, succulents, tropical house plants, organic herbs and other edibles. The Living Wall Planter also stands up on solid surfaces and looks and works beautifully on a tabletop and countertop. So, bring kitchen herbs out to the picnic or garden flowers indoors for the party. The Living Wall Planter stands up, so vertical gardeners can now efficiently plant on a horizontal surface, like a potting bench or the ground. No more messy, awkward planting on ladders. Professionals can plant off-site and then bring their pre-planted Living Wall Planter to hang, cutting their on-site installation time in half.

I am glad I did. I love these. I am using these indoors, in my kitchen, hanging on a sheetrock painted wall. I have had them for 3~ish weeks, and no complaints so far. The plastic is sturdy, these feel well made. They are easy to mount if you follow the instructions. I think they are perfectly sized - not too bulky but generous enough for my herbs to thrive. I have had no leak issues, and my plants seem to be doing well too.
The evaporation doesn't seem to happen too quickly, but that could be just because I am currently in the hot and humid season. Perhaps the soil will dry out faster once Fall / Winter hits. I just have to adjust my watering with this in mind.
The only Con is the color. When I purchased these, Amazon only had them in this bright green. This doesn't really work with my house decor, but I needed planters quick to ensure my herbs didnt die. Now they have these in white and grey... these color choices would have been WAYY better for my home decor.
When they ship, the pieces are stored for shipping, so you have to reassemble the unit, but it's pretty easy to figure out.
Ultimately, there's a hook mount that you put on the wall with one screw (so it pivots freely), and the basket is molded to hang on that hook - so it "auto-levels" ... from there, you fill the main chamber of the basket with soil and plants and leave the back chamber empty. The divider between the two chambers has holes in it ... so when you pour water into the back chamber, the water leeches into the soil in the main chamber, and essentially waters the plants from below (since the water leeches into the lowest holes fastest).
I have a bright white wall, and these look good.
Some reviews complain about water going down the wall and are shocked and dismayed, etc. The reason for that is that the FRONT of the baskets have aerating holes at the top of the basket roughly 4 inches from the bottom ... so if you pour a bucket of water into the thing (which I would think would drown your plants anyway) and saturate soil so much that the water flows up to 4 inches from the bottom (half a gallon of free-standing water?) ... it's gonna go through those holes and flow down the outside ... in other words -- don't overwater, no overflow.
One last thing ... there's a weird little piece of plastic that comes with each basket -- you won't know what it does -- my guess is that it's a clip for holding the hoses of a slow drip watering system ... I just threw it into the back chamber for storage in case I ever want to add a hose system later.
