The Island Planter – 12 in. is a self-watering floating planter designed to display water plants elegantly in your water garden. The foam collar is 12″ in diameter, while the plastic liner is 8.5″ in diameter by 5″ deep. The self-watering feature reduces maintenance and protects plants from hungry koi. However, it requires a special lightweight “Island Mix” for optimal performance.

Customers have praised the planter for its durability and ability to hold water plants without the need for repotting. Some users have reported that the planter does not float as expected, leading to disappointment and the need for a better anchoring system. Others have found it to be a significant improvement over homemade attempts, providing the correct water level for plants.
