Wal-Mart says that these 18" x 7.5" x 7.5" sub-irrigated (called
"self-watering) planters (SIPs) are "like a spa for your plants."
Be sure that they are very small plants. Maybe you can grow some salad greens or herbs in these mini-boxes but they certainly are not in the category of other vegetable growing SIPs either box or bucket. They are toys by comparison.
Even so, they are far better than the under-sized drain hole planter boxes I see all over row house Brooklyn neighborhoods. Most of the plants in them look like they have just run a marathon.
Come on Wal-Mart, is this the best you can do? Oh, by the way, even these are available online only.
These self-watering windowbox planters are like a spa for your plants. This planter has a built-in reservoir that keeps roots moist for up to two weeks and the ventilated base promotes drainage and aeration to keep the plants healthy and beautiful. Water level is also visible on the lip to prevent over and under watering.
