These Mini Planters Evenly Disperse Water to Each Pot

These mini planters by Evan Gant are small, but they have a lot going for them. Gant’s ‘Aqueduct Mini Planters’ are 3D-printed, modular and have a built-in trickle down system.

The shallow pots work best for air plants and succulents, because there is not a lot of room for soil. The tiny 3D-printed pods clip onto one another an can be arranged so that they float above and drain any excess water into a larger potted plant. This is a clever system because no water is wasted and it assures that water is spread out evenly among the plants.

Gant’s design is available on Shapeways and includes a mix of double and single-channel planters. There are many ways that this modular unit can be configured, making it ideal for spaces of any size.
