Lechuza Table Planters
I adore plants and have them in every room in the house. Watering them can sometimes present itself as a chore though, especially in the winter when the central heating is on and the soil tends to dry out. This is the reason I was so keen to try the self watering planters from Lechuza.
I opted to try one of the Lechuza table planters as they looked fab – so modern and perfect for my newly decorated living room, and also as I have lost count of the number of small house plants I have tucked away in every nook and cranny!
I choose the Delta variety and a fairly neutral colour as my living room is a sort of a ‘mix mash’ and I thought ‘shiny taupe’ would suit all the other colours involved.
So, why are Lechuza planters so special? Lechuza planters are self-watering – yes, how handy is this invention!! The planters each contain a plant liner and watering system so your plants receive a steady and adequate water supply. You simply add water as per the water indicator via the handy watering shaft – this will prevent spills. I used to ‘over flow’ planters all the time when watering plants too quickly.
A water reservoir is formed in the bottom of the plant pot so your plant cannot become too saturated either. I think this is rather ingenious and I am steadily replacing all my indoor plant pots with the Lechuza planters – I also have a few of the outdoor ones on my Christmas wish list!
To use these planters outdoors you simply remove the plug which lets water drain away during wet weather.
The plant pots come in lots and lots of shapes and sizes which present something for every style and taste, from the traditional and conservative to the ultra modern.
I really enjoyed looking through Lechuza’s website at the different planting ideas and especially at the Christmas styles – I am definitely going to attempt this idea below with bobbles and ferns – isn’t it just fab?
This would look so good as a table centerpiece on Christmas day.
Prices vary but Lechuza was not as pricey as I thought it would be. The pots start at around £9.99 and go up to over £100.
