THE NEW HYDRA SYSTEM™

Desert Planter interior pic

Self watering or sub-irrigated planters introduce water from the bottom of the planter allowing it to soak upwards through the soil in the columns to the root system. This allows the plant(s) to take on water as needed and allowing for optimal plant growth. The water contained in the reservoir is protected from wind and sun, significantly reducing evaporation, and dramatically increasing water efficiencies.

Our self-watering planters feature an innovative double hull that creates a reservoir at the bottom of each container.

A tube protrudes above the soil allows the reservoir to be filled. and a drainage hole allows for extra water to exit the reservoir.

DESERT PLANTERS ORIGINAL SUBIRRIGATION SYSTEM

Our self-watering planters are based on a carefully engineered design that lets plants soak up what they need while still conserving water and other resources.

Our self-watering planters feature an innovative double hull that creates a reservoir at the bottom of each container.

A tube protrudes above the soil allows the reservoir to be filled. Our newly designed Hydra Stem™ locks into place and provides the necessary wicking up into the soil to reach the root of the plants. The Hydra Filter ™ system allows water to drain into the reservoir without soil migration.

Thanks to this design, our self-watering containers provide numerous important advantages, including:

Top Advantages

  • Slower water evaporation
  • Up to 80% reduction in water consumption
  • Decreased need for watering
