Made of plastic, Santino pots are strong, durable and reusable, year after year. All self-watering planters include a large built-in reservoir which draws water to the roots for up to 4 weeks and prevents them from rotting by allowing an easy oxygen circulation. Santino pots are great for an outdoor garden, balcony, indoor decoration, greening projects etc.


1. Before planting the plant, it is recommended to pour a layer of gravel (2-3cm/1inch) for ideal moisture balance. You can also use perlite or specific mixtures of these materials.

2. Pour the first layer of soil, which it shouldn’t be much since you need to leave enough space for the root ball. Instead of soil, different types of peat mixtures can be used, suitable for your plant.

3. Place the plant directly into the flowerpot and fill the remaining space with soil. Slightly compress. Add a little bit more soil, because it will settle within 2-3 weeks by 5-10%.

4. Water your plant directly into the soil. Make sure that the water level does not exceed the level of gravel. Use the clear window to check the water level.

Santino Brand offers the unique combination of 4 key features which made us pioneers in creating and bringing the superior self-watering system to the market. These features are WICK, DRAINAGE CARTRIDGE, TRICKLE ELEMENT, CLEAR VIEW WINDOW.

I buy a LOT of pots. I also live in an apartment, so watering my plants is a considerable amount of work. I primarily own Lechuza and Algreen self-watering style pots that great time savers, but they are expensive. I decided to buy a Santino pot because it was about half the price. I only have to water every 1 to 3 weeks with my self-watering pots. My fast growing herbs typically need watering once a week while my slower growing plants are okay for 2 to 3 weeks.

– Cheaper: Really this is the only pro vs Lechuza and Algreen, but it is an important one!!
– Style: Less aesthetically appealing (at least the leaf sticker comes off)
– Water reservoir: water has to drain through to soil to get to the reservoir, unlike the Lechuza and Algreen that have a separate opening to add water (so the top soil stays dry). This is an important issue for plants like basil that are susceptible to root rot.
– Water level gauge: hard to see on the Santino vs Lechuza and Algreen that have a far more visible water level indicator.
– Pon: fancy gravel substance provided with Lechuza pots that is supposed to “aerate the roots.” I have no idea if this is true, but I bought a bag anyway to use in my Algreen and Santino pots that do not come with this stuff.

There are some definite advantages of a Lechuza or Algreen pot, but the Santino is a reasonable less expensive alternative.

These are simple, yet highly effective pots. They have a self water feature that works really well. And what I like more is there is a window where you can see the level. This is important because it’s not hard to overfill these pots and cause root rot issues. When I fill mine, I keep the water level below the top of the window and I never have issues with rot. I usually just water once a week when I use these pots, I would not be able to go that long with standard pots. I’ve just about replaced all of my standard pots with these.

I have bought several Santino pots now. I think they do an excellent job. Paying attention to the type of potting mix that a plant needs makes them wick properly. Since I make my own mixes, adding extra perlite for plants that need moisture but can’t be soggy makes wicking properties just right. Just pay attention to your plants needs before choosing the potting soil type and these work terrifically for every plant.

We bought 14 various sizes and like the simple effective design. We used synthetic fabric at the bottom to keep the soil out of the excess water area. This has proven to be very effective. We have about twenty house plants and will purchase more down the road, as we switch out the old planter pots for these new ones.

Exactly what I was looking for–right size, very nice looking, easily cleaned with a damp cloth. I can be away from home and be assured my herbs will have the appropriate amount of water while I am gone. The herbs in my garden window love these pots! Be sure to use the appropriate potting soil for the plants that will find homes in these pots so the self wartering feature works appropriately.

I love these pots. In the summer the liner comes out so the plant goes outdoors and can drain when it rains. In the fall the liner goes into the solid exterior piece so it becomes a great indoor pot. The company has excellent customer service! There is a photo I hope shows water level — you can see space above. I am a fan of plain clay pots, and these white ones are almost as subtle. And — they comfort the friend who waters things when I am away who is afraid of drowning my plants. Also, I miscounted plants and in a few instances just dropped the clay pots inside the liner instead of repotting. So easy!

I’m not going to use this as a self-watering planter. I bought it for my red anthurium and the color fits right into our color scheme. I don’t like fire engine red, like a real cherry red and got what I wanted. Anthuriums don’t like a lot of water, prefer misting. I wanted it to look pretty in front of the dining room window and pretty it is.

Not exactly what I expected. For some reason I thought it was ceramic, but that’s my own mistake. Still very pretty. Looks great w/ my orchid.
