Cascada Stackable Self-Watering Herb Planter #gardening


Cascada Stackable Self-Watering Herb Planter

This all-in-one planter includes a specially formulated granular material, called Lechuza PON, that's made from nutrient-enriched pumice, zeolites and lava. The clean, attractive material wicks water up from the built-in reservoir, aerates the roots and provides your plant with nutrition. A layer of Lechuza PON spread over the the reservoir wicks water to the potting mix around your plant’s roots.

The water reservoir releases moisture as your plants need it and lets you water less often. A built-in water-level indicator tells you when it’s time to add more water. The stylish outer pot is watertight so you can place it directly on furniture without worrying about leaks. Inside, a matching liner easily lifts out, making it easy to change plants, repot, trim roots and rinse leaves. For outdoor use, there's a removable drainage plug on the bottom of the pot. From the makers of classic Playmobile® toys, award-winning Lechuza planters are crafted in Germany from durable, shatterproof, UV-safe plastic.

The Cascada planter includes the container, platform, water level indicator with corner sleeve, and granular potting mix.

"Here is the source of this image. Credit to the photographer, Jiti Chadha, who took this on July 3, 2014 and provided the following caption:"
Hallstatt, overlooking the Hallst├Ątter See (Lake Hallstatt) in Upper Austria, is considered to be the oldest still-inhabited village in Europe and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Salt mining was being done here as early as the 2nd millennium BC and it was the site of an early Iron Age culture from 800 to 400 BC, which is known as the Hallstatt Era. Some of the earliest archaeological evidence for the Celts was found in Hallstatt.
Besides its history, many consider it as one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The Story Behind the Art: 'My name is Wayan Rendah. I started to learn to sculpt at the age of eight when I was still in primary school, learning from my father how to carve traditional statues from wood. Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. Carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation. At first, I sold my statues to the sellers in the art market and at small shops. After I finished school, I studied with Wayan Purna so as to have a stronger foundation to build upon, because even at a young age I knew that what I wanted was to be able to create the ideas I had in my head. But to do this I needed more experience, and the tools and material I needed were beyond my financial reach. As time went by I was able to bring out my ideas by selecting different types of wood and concentrating on the themes that could satisfy my creative desires. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings.
