No matter if you love or hate squirrels, the squirrel in the log is your plant’s guardian angel and will become your best bud. Its main purpose in life is to monitor your plant’s level of high-quality H2O.
How does it work? Instead of watering your plant the old-fashioned way, i.e. adding water on top of the soil, there is a water reservoir that feeds your plant from the bottom up. Once your plant and water lines are in place, add water to the reservoir from the side spout, and Mr. Squirrel’s head will bob up to the top. If his head sinks below the hole, that means your plant wants a refill. This helps you ensure your plants will always have the perfect amount of water!
This planter is fun for the kids and also practical. It’s a good tool for teaching them about responsibility and for getting them excited about plants and critters in general.
