Self-watering flowerpot

It is not uncommon to discover that our house plants and indoor herbs look a bit dried out. Either because we have been too busy, or because we have just forgotten to water them for a while. Fortunately it is sometimes possible to revive them. Other times we are forced to accept that we have not given the plants the care and attention they need. However, now there is hope - for you and your plants. EVA SOLO invented an original and attractively designed flowerpot which is self-watering, and thereby gives the plants the water they require, as and when they need it.

A plant knows best
In nature, plants draw up the water they need through their roots - when they need it. The same principle is behind this functional and self-watering flowerpot which consists of just two parts. On top a ceramic flowerpot, and beneath it a glass container, which functions as a water reservoir. Water is drawn up through nylon threads which hang down from the bottom of the pot, like extensions of the plant's own roots. A simple system with sufficient water to keep the plant happy for 7-10 days.

Design and function
This self-watering flowerpot has been designed by Claus Jensen and Henrik Holbæk from the Tools design studio. The two designers have previously designed a striking and functional planter vase for EVA SOLO which has won them several international design awards. The experience acquired in developing the planter vase has been used to develop the new self-watering flowerpot.

Can stand anywhere in the home
The flowerpot is available in two sizes and in the colours red terracotta, light terracotta, dark grey and white, and is thus perfect for house plants in your sitting room or herbs in your kitchen. Included in the box is a practical guide with helpful advice on how to look after the plants in the flowerpot.
