I ordered several of these last year and have mixed feelings. Some of my violets have done well; others seem to dry out too much. Maybe the length of the wick is an issue? It's also rather difficult to get down into the bottom corners to clean the pots when algae grows.
I ordered three of these last year. This is the only way to go when growing african violets. I am ordering more today. I wish they would make them for the stanard violets. I just love them.
Received 2 of the clear wicking pots as a gift, Loved them, couldn't wait to order more. Will be buying more when the green & blues are available.
I thought these might look a bit cheesy around the nice ceramic pots, but they actually look rather elegant. They raise the minis up, and I wish I'd gotten one for every semi as well, at least for while they're young. The pots they arrived in also fit the hole, so you can use them immediately. They were out of clear, so I got purples to match purple flowers, and pink to match pink.
I Love these little reservoirs! They are great for my miniature violets and are great for displaying them. I have searched all over the internet and haven't been able to find another like these!
