Most house plants die because they are over-watered or forgotten. For our interns, the task is made easier because we made it into a routine: once a week for plants in small pots, once
a month for plants in large pots. However, if you don't have cheap labor available, then you might want to consider the Eva Solo self-watering containers. We posted a FirstLook on these containers a few years ago.
been using the Eva Solo planter mainly as a way to
arrange cut flowers or to root cuttings.
This high-quality planter is comprised of three parts: a thick glass container, a stainless steel cone, and a saucer with nylon wicks.
The system is both attractive and functional.
They are perfect for water-loving plants that you don't want to go thirsty.
A great thing about using the Eva Solo container to root cuttings is that the tall conical shape of the stainless steel sleeve makes it easy to arrange the cuttings for display, and adding water to the container will not disturb the arrangement.
Another thing about the Eva Solo planter is that once the cuttings have rooted, they may be planted directly in the container.
limitation is that some plants will quickly outgrow the relatively small size. Still, growing the plants in this container will ensure a great start and a healthy root system
for many types of plants.
Rooting plants in water is a simple and low effort way to turn one plant into many. You can do it with any normal glass container or with something a little more specialized. Either way, it is a great way to decorate as well as propagate. Best of all, it is free :-) [Permalink] -Eva Solo Planters InTheWild
