Self-Watering Orchid Pot

This elegant, clever pot enables orchids to water themselves with just the right amount.


Orchid Abode

In Victorian Europe, "orchidelirium"—an over-the-top fad for collecting orchids—led orchid hunters to risk jaguar attacks and volcano eruptions in pursuit of exotic specimens. Only in the 20th century did botanists figure out how to clone them, making it possible for regular people to indulge their orchid love.

But love alone can't keep these singular flowers alive. Many a heartbroken orchid admirer has accidentally killed their beloved plant by overwatering (orchids don't like "wet feet”). But too little water will also do them in. There are fussy techniques to help determine exactly when and how much you should water them. And then there is this design award-winning pot, which makes it easy.

On the outside, it's elegant, with a simple, rounded shape and faience glaze. On the inside, it’s brilliant. You water your orchid through the hole in the outer wall. The roots rest on the inner wall. A nylon wick extending from the water to the soil lets your plant daintily sip just the right amount of water whenever it needs it, so “Miss Wonderful,” “Lady of the Night,” or “Twinkle Fragrance Fantasy” can stay happy and blooming. Made in Denmark.

Made from
nylon, plastic, earthenware
5.9" H x 7" Dia; 2.5 lbs.
Hand wash.
Before planting
In the bottom of the orchid pot is a plastic disc with three nylon wicks for drawing up water from the outer bowl. It is possible to buy new wicks. The wicks can easily be replaced by fitting new wicks in the hole in the top part of the pot.
Carefully remove the plant from the plastic pot and shake the roots free of earth. Place the orchid in the self- watering pot and cover the roots with the orchid mixture. Shake the roots slightly so the earth settles. Orchid roots need air, so let them protrude slightly. Pour water into the outer bowl.
