Connect A Pot is a low maintenance self watering pot to bring nature home. Place it on on your window, hang it or place it.

Water is absorbed upwards to the plant as required. Simply top up with water once every 2 weeks (depending on the plant).

Versatile design means it can be hung almost anywhere.

Common Questions
Is the “Connect A Pot” safe to grow food in?
The upper part is made from BPA/phthalate-free polypropylene and the bottom is made from polycarbonate. We really spent a lot of time researching different plastics and what is the safest. From the research that we’ve done in this area, it is impossible to claim any plastic material is 100% safe. We’ve structured the design to make it as safe as possible. The thickness of the plastic is 2.5mm which is thicker than most planters, meaning if the plastic ever did break down, it would take longer to make contact with the soil. The main colour is white, so it will reflect more sunlight away from the surface of the plastic greatly increasing the life of the product.

Is the factory in China that is manufacturing the products ethical?
We spent a lot of time finding the right factory partner for this product. The workers we meet in the office were happy and very friendly. Rocky, the factory owner is a family man and works alongside his wife. He has many foreign clients and is used to meeting the quality standards required. We checked, and the factory workers are paid a fair wage and also their social insurance.

 Shipping and Handling

Additional shipping costs will be requested. Shipping rates vary  depending on volume and destination. The shipping cost is not included in the price of the product, we recommend that you purchase at least the 3 set for the best value. We are doing our best to minimise postage costs and have been in conversation with fulfillment companies. This will allow us to provide you with the most competitive price possible. The more successful this campaign is, the cheaper the postage price will be.

Risks and challenges

I (Kirk Dyer) am an industrial designer with over 5 years’ industry experience. Working alongside my wife (native Chinese with a background in sourcing and international sales) we are confident that we have minimised foreseeable risks. Living in Southern China we are located close to the manufacturing facilities and are able to personally oversee the production process. We will strive to do our best to deliver the rewards.

The product presented here is a production-ready prototype produced by the factory that will be manufacturing the final version. We have high standards and aim to deliver a top-quality product following the timeline outlined here – however with this in mind, there is always the possibility of delays if extra measures are needed to ensure the best possible quality.
