Has anyone used planter indoors? I need tall planter to reach sunlight from windows in bathroom.

Answer

Hi there, Drainage holes of this planter are not pre-drilled as you can use this indoors. Depending on the desired use of the planter, you may need to drill the drainage holes yourself.

Answer

Hi there! The tray in this planter is placed halfway down the planter (14 inches from the bottom).

Does this taper at the bottom? Or is it the same size too to bottom and does not taper in?

Asked by Lynne June 30, 2020
1
Answer

This planter does taper slightly from the top to the base. The top of the planter at it's widest point is 16" x 16" and the base measures 11.7" x 11.7". For further reference all of the dimensions of this planter can be found under the "Product Overview > Info and Guides" section of this product listing by clicking on "Specifications".

How do you fill up the bottom with water again, after the water evaporates? Is there a spout?

Asked by Bonny May 31, 2019
2
Answers

The water will just fall through the planter if properly built while first filling it.

Is this easy to blow over with strong winds?

Asked by Mikey May 18, 2019
2
Answers

No. If using self watering feature the bottom holds about 4 gallons of water and the top holds a lot of planting soil. When filled these planters aren’t going to blow over unless tornado or hurricane force winds hit and probably not then.

Can I paint it?

Asked by Deb April 25, 2019

Answers

Sand lightly all surfaces, apply primer paint, and then paint with final color.

Beautiful, yet lightweight
Beautiful planter! Only wish that the weight and the inside shelf were a bit more substantial for supporting plants. We ended up placing bricks at the bottom of the inside to hold them in place. Easy fix, at least!
by BeckS
Great for indoors
I purchased this planter specifically to grow basil year round. I live in an area that has changing seasons. I grew the basil from seed. See the attached pic. The basil is doing so well that it needs to be trimmed every week! As per the instructions, I added packing peanuts in the bottom of the middle section to keep soil from dropping to the very bottom and to allow the roots to push through to reach the water in the bottom of the planter.

These planters (I bought 2) are gorgeous. They add a bit of elegance to my otherwise plain planters. I would definitely recommend. In fact, I am thinking about buying some additional styles of the Mayne planters to add to my patio.

Broke in less than 4 hours
The shelf between the soil and water reservoir broke on both within 2 hours of planting and ruined all the flowers. I only bought them because they were “self watering” very misleading.

Response from Mayne Product ExpertApr 6, 2021
We’re very sorry to hear about the difficulty you experienced with your planter. When using the water reservoir feature in these planters, it is important to ensure that 1) the overflow drainage hole is drilled and 2) that lightweight filler and container potting mix is used to ensure the tray is not overloaded. If all planting instructions have been followed, and you are still experiencing issues please feel free to reach out to our Customer Service team as we take our Quality Control very seriously and would love the opportunity to address any concerns with our products.
