Enjoying your tropicals year-round with ease
Year round enjoyment of your tropical plants with the right planters
Plants are incredible! Not only do they beautify our space, but they also provide some very practical benefits; everything from cleaning the air and boosting oxygen levels, to deterring illness, as well as promoting healing and releasing stress. It’s no wonder then, that many people choose to enjoy their tropical and subtropical plants inside during fall and winter and outdoors during the warmer months. A little pre-planning in advance will help you enjoy your plant friends all year round, starting with the planter you choose.
One of the biggest considerations when transitioning your indoor plants to the outdoors is to move them in stages to acclimatise them to the stronger light intensity and avoid shocking or stressing your plants. For the first few weeks, place your plants in a shady area during the day and bring inside during the night, while gradually increasing the amount of sunshine they receive and time outdoors.
Your plants will thank you for being moved outside to the fresh air and sunshine, however the transitioning process may leave your back moaning with all this moving about. This is where choosing the right planter makes all the difference.
Most potted plants are too cumbersome and heavy to move once, let alone multiple times. Traditional planters made of clay, ceramic, or even concrete are weighty on their own and more so filled with soil and plants. Messy repotting is often the only option. Lighter weight planters such as fiberglass, resin and plastic help in mobility, but if it is a large planter, the sheer amount of soil and rock filling the planter makes it just as impossible to move.
An elegant solution is investing in Lechuza self-watering planter systems. Made to the exacting standards of traditional German design and manufacturing, each planter is made from a weatherproof, robust plastic that won’t fade in the sun.
Lechuza planters take the stress out of moving with easy to use retractable handles embedded into the liner. Specifically designed to be the perfect size for your plants to grow and thrive, the liners minimize the amount of soil needed and thereby the weight, even for the biggest plants.
Start preparing now in the fall/winter for your spring/ summer, lush outdoor retreat with all of your tropicals and sub-tropicals. With Lechuza planters, moving plants not only saves your back, but lets you enjoy all the benefits of your plants year-round, stress-free.
