You've always said that "If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself." But in the case of the Grobal Self Watering Pot you really can let someone (or something) take over your dirty work for a change. The Grobal draws water and nutrients from the (included) soil pad and feeds them to your (not included) plant on an as-needed basis. The result? Fabulous foliage with a zero energy output.
