A: Thank you for pointing out this error. We have made the necessary corrections. The soil volume is actually 9 quarts.
A: No. Just check the soil by touch to tell if it’s drying out.
A: Thanks for leaving a question. Fill the watering hole with water. It will overflow when there is too much added. Did you know that this self-watering planter also comes in cadmium green and black? Check them out next time you're in The Home Depot or on homedepot.com!
A: Yes it is located toward the base. If you add to much water it will come out of the base. To much water can cause problems with plant disease.
A: I can't
A: DP: Yes and no. Yes if you have it high enough off the ground to be able to look into the access hole and no if you have it on the ground and you're half blind like me. I bought two of them, one for inside on a shelf and one in the patio in a saucer on the floor. The one on the ground was hard to see through the watering access hole because at my age I don't bend very well anymore, but I found it easier to fill both with a watering can with a small enough spout to fit in the hole. I fill them until it just starts to come out. Hence the saucer underneath. These are the least expensive self watering containers I've used so far that really work and in their bright colors with most of the reservoir enclosed they need watering a lot less frequently than my other plant containers. I like them and hope this helps, Hank
A: Airpurifyingplantman: I wouldn't, because I fear it would defeat the upward percolation through the soil. You'll see four largeholes 90 degrees apart, plus a number of very tiny ones, and some of the soil is going to leak through into the reservoir. That's what's actually going to connect the reservoir to the potting soil above and it will do two things: one, it'll moisten the soil enough at the bottom to attract the roots of your plants down and moisture at the bottom will literally percolate up to nourish the roots of your plants. I'm afraid that rocks might impede the transfer of moisture up to the roots. I actually thought of using a coffee filter on mine to keep the reservoir cleaner but I'm going to follow the directions in the video that you can access on line. I hope that helps, Hank
A: the plant does. not sit in the bottom of the pot. So I will say no rocks but I am not an expert.
