Good news for the slackers among us: a self-watering planter.
Designer Joey Roth's self-watering terracotta planter does require filling with water once in a while but that's it. Plants are placed in soil in the outer donut-shaped chamber, and the center chamber is filled with water. The natural porosity of the unglazed terracotta allows the water to move from the center chamber and into the soil, based on the soil's moisture (regulated by the plant's need for water). Joey Roth will be launching the planter at Dwell on Design. The planters are $45 at Joey Roth.
