The Nido hanging planter is part of the Lechuza Trend collection. Featuring the classic woven wicker design, this hanging basket is the perfect balance between size and weight with a large enough reservoir to keep even the thirstiest plants happy, but not so large that it becomes too heavy to hang and mount.
The Nido has a classic cylindrical shape tapering slightly in towards the bottom. The included water level indicator allows you to see instantly if you need to refill the reservoir. Whereas many typical hanging planters dry out quickly and need constant watering, the Nido planter can go much longer between watering thanks to its built in 1.9 liter reservoir.
Unlike other planters in the Trend collection, the drain plug for this container is slightly modified to contain the same woven wicker finish (compared to a more utilitarian orange drain plug). This ensures that if you do decide to keep the drain plug in while hanging, the bottom won’t look out of place.
One of things we like the most about this planter is the removable plant liner. This makes planting, replanting, and hanging a breeze. Simply remove the liner and you can plant it wherever you have your gardening station setup. You don’t have to climb precariously to install the soil and plants while the planter is already hanging. This can all be done by removing the liner. Likewise when mounting the container, remove the inner plant liner to reduce the weight so your arm doesn’t get too tired holding the planter up. It’s a minor point, but one that you’ll be thankful for when planting and replanting each year.
