Good for African Violets

I use these pots for African violets and some Calatheas. Would buy more.

Perfect and difficult to find size

I bought 2 of these about 2 years ago for a couple miniature African Violets. I water with dilute fertilizer each time I top-off the bowl.I would say I add water about every 7-10 days. Works great and the plants grow and bloom beautifully. 2 years later still look like new and still wick well.

The perfect pot

I enjoy miniature African Violets so much. However it is difficult for me to be consistent in watering. These pots take the guess work out of watering. Never too much or too little. And the violets thrive in these pots. I cannot find these small self watering type anywhere in town so I am greatful that The Violet Barn Carrie's these as well as the right soul for self watering pots.

Ceramic self-watering pots

I ordered these pots a year ago and have had great success with repotting my miniatures. These pots are beautiful and functional. I highly recommend using these pots! I am not an expert but have been growing African Violets for 30 years. I come to the Violet Barn for information regularly.

Beware of soil!

I love these little pots, but definitely be careful of what soil you use. In my early days I killed a violet using regular potting soil and a self watering pot like this. Definitely make sure you follow the instructions and get a soil made for these types of pots!
