Plants are a great way to add some life and color to your home or apartment, but sometimes life, vacations and last-minute dinner plans can get in the way of looking after them. Lechuza has created a self-watering planter that have built-in wick systems that can keep plants hydrated for months. Fill its built-in reservoir, and the plant will be sustained for up to 12 weeks, and an indicator will notify you when its time for a refill. As the planter all ready comes fully stocked, you can avoid the hassle of re-potting as well.

If you’re not in the market for foliage, consider purchasing one as a unique gift for your next housewarming party.
