The idea behind self-watering planters is pretty simple – they’re basically pots that hold extra water, designed to provide water as needed to the plants without drowning their roots. Usually, however, they’re made from cheap plastic, or else are DIY adaptions of ceramic pots. Here’s a cool one though from from designer Joey Roth, made from unglazed earthenware. The center column holds the water, and since the pot is porous, water can seep out as needed into the surrounding soil. Simple, eco-friendly, and looks great too. Available for $45 preorder at this website. Apart from decorative purposes, one great use for this would be as a small herb garden!
