The Balconera makes it easy to grow fresh greens and herbs on a balcony railing. It can also be mounted onto a wall or placed on a table or flat surface for easy access. Check out the video below for more info.
Lechuza Sub Irrigation System
The Lechuza sub-irrigation system will allow you to go for up to several days without watering (exact specifications will vary based on temperature, wind conditions, type of plants, etc.) thanks to the built in reservoir. Using the separator tray and Lechuza-pon drainage material that are both included with your Balconera planter, this controls the amount of water your plants get allowing them to flourish even if you can’t get out and water them every day. Your plants will still need to be watered the traditional way (from above) for the first couple of weeks to allow the roots to stretch and reach down into the pon material, but once established, simply fill up the reservoir and enjoy simple watering and plant maintenance.
The brackets securely hold the Balconera in place and are not visible from the front of the unit. It can be easily assembled and disassembled for winter storage.
