Whether you find it hard remembering to water your plants or are heading away from home and don’t want your leafy friends to wilt in your absence, we have discovered an ingenious device that will spell the end of your green fingered woes.

Lechuza plant pots are self-watering, meaning that you can fill them once and forget about them until the water dips below the indication line. The sub-irrigation system enables water to circulate just like in nature, meaning that the roots of the plant won’t rot in standing water. They can be used inside or outside (simply remove the plug for outside use, so that excess rainwater can drain easily). The water reservoir holds up enough to water your plants for up to 12 weeks depending on planter size, plant type, and location. If you are heading away from Dubai for summer, this is the perfect solution to keeping your plants alive.

We’ve been using this gadget since last November for our orchid – and in that time, it has flowered three times with hardly any effort. We’re big fans.

Lechuza is available to buy at IS (previously Invent Styles Black Tulip), in the reception area of Media One Hotel, Media City.
