Balconera Information

What Is It?
The Balconera Planter is a self-watering container garden kit by Lechuza. It is great to grow aromatic herbs such as basil and rosemary, fresh veggies like arugula and spinach, succulent strawberries, and even annual flowers. Place the Balconera on any flat surface like an outdoor table, a sunny windowsill, or along an outdoor ledge to add a splash of colour or fragrance. An optional railing mounting system means you can attach it to your balcony, porch, or deck railing, and even directly onto a wall, fence and other vertical surface. Hidden brackets that mount easily onto a railing and soft, easily adjustable bands provide the perfect fit and prevent scratching.

The Best Part:
The Balconera Planter is great for starting your own mini urban farm for apartments, condos, decks, balconies, and other small areas where gardening space is at a premium. It features Lechuza’s sub-irrigation system, which allows you to spend less time watering and get better results.

Why We Carry This:
Balconera just works. Everything you’d want in a planter, and even things you’ve never thought of are included, from the built-in water reservoir to the hidden mounting system (that can be mounted on both a railing or a wall). Use this as a stand alone unit, or put multiple units together for a striking display.

The Balconera features Lechuza’s sub irrigation system, which features a built in reservoir of water so you can spend less time watering while still ensuring your plants get just the right amount of water they need. An integrated filling tube and water indicator shows you at a glance how much water is in the reservoir. It can also be mounted onto a wall for those without a railing or those with limited floor/table space. Read more about why we love self-watering containers.
