1. Are the planters suitable for outdoors?

Yes, the smooth finish is excellent for outdoors with a fade resistance that will look good for years. It is scratch resistant and washes easily with a garden hose if it becomes dusty or dirty. The weight of the water and plant also holds it in place during windy periods. Large plants should be well established if they are going to be placed outdoors so as to not blow the plant out of the pot.

2. What are the colors that the planters come in?

3. Why should I mess with live plants?

Plants are a very necessary part of our "eco" system. We have a symbiotic relationship with them in that we use oxygen and produce carbon dioxide and plants use carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. Plants are wonderful air cleaners. NASA has done many studies on the ability of plants to break down the indoor air pollutants (chemicals) that we breath in every day (Click here to download "Word" file for list of plants, pollutants and sources).

4. Do my plants still need light?

Yes. Nothing takes the place of light. High light plants will still need a bright window. But remember, there are many low light varieties, like Spathiphylum (Peace Lily), Pothos and others that can survive with artificial light, like the florescent light found in office buildings, etc. You can usually check light requirements wherever you buy your plants.

5. How large a plant can I put in my planter?

The self watering planters pots are 11" square and 7" deep. You can successfully grow as large or as many plants as you can fit into the pot. Big plants will have smaller root mass in a hydroponic system because the roots do not have to go looking for nutrition in the soil-everything they want is delivered to them by the system. Consequently, the problem of having to re-pot "root-bound" plants will rarely come up. Some plants can grow to be very large in the self watering pots over a period of years. It is somewhat difficult to put a large plant into one of the planters, due to the larger root structures.
