Naturalistic Self-Watering Planters

The Conceptual 'A-Pot' Self-Watering Planter Keeps Soil Moist

The conceptual 'A-Pot' self-watering planter is a charming decor piece for the home or office that is imagined with style and functionality in mind to keep it suitable for busy consumers.

The planter features a clean glass exterior that works with a terra-cotta container to keep your choice of plant neatly growing within. The terra-cotta will naturally draw water up into the container from the bottom section that is immersed in the glass exterior to keep the soil moist at all times.

The conceptual 'A-Pot' self-watering planter is the design work of Zonesum for Dowan and is the winner of the 2021 Red Dot Design Concept Award. The planter is well-suited for plants that require consistent hydration to help them flourish in their environment.
