    Hello everyone,
    I have to re pot couple of Tropical plants and to move them indoors. I am trying to find decent priced self watering pots for my Ferns, Fig and Hibiscus before the cold freezes them.
    I have already checked Dollar tree, Dollarama and Canadian Tire. I am in the GTA .
    Thank you Kindly,
    This thread is currently associated with: Canadian Tire, Dollarama

    We bought ours at Home Depot too. They work well, but impossible to properly clean. I think I've seen them at Walmart as well.

    LL he grows them in their home, he has mandarin orange, lime and lemon trees. He just has a knack for plants and it is his hobby!

    I noticed Ikea has some attractive self watering pots as well.

    That is amazing! Although we have a south exposure living room window our little fur kid has a dedicated bench in front of it to watch the world go by. That would be the best place to put a citrus tree. Hmmm...that would be so neat.
