These Cute Drinking Animal Planters Keep Plants Hydrated By Drinking From Little Water Bowls
With an ever-increasing work schedule, it is almost impossible to find the time to water your plants. Here’s a solution that helps simplify things: a cute animal-shaped planter that keeps your plants refreshed even when you’re far away from home.
Many herbs and veggies can be grown with limited soil and space whether you’ve only got a courtyard, a balcony, or even just a windowsill. Although plants generally grow without any help, they need plenty of water just like any other living thing to prevent them from dying.
Along with sunlight and soil, water is essential to the success of your plants. Water is the primary transporter of sugar and other nutrients that are needed throughout the plant, from roots to leaves. It is essential to ensure that your plants are getting enough water for the following reasons: 
- Water aids in the germination of seeds.
- Water aids in the photosynthesis process by helping plants prepare their food.
- Water aids in transporting nutrients and minerals from the soil to the plants.
- Water aids in maintaining plant structure by preserving pressure to the plant tissues.
- Water also acts as a source of hydrogen, reducing the carbon dioxide they absorb and converting it into glucose.
It is perfectly normal for plants to suffer from drought or water shortages from time to time. However, this can severely slow their growth or, in some cases, be fatal to them. Plants that suffer from prolonged drought may become susceptible to infections by pests and pathogens.
A self-watering system for plants
One of the best ways to ensure your plants are getting enough water, even when you’re not home, is by using a self-watering system like the Peropon Drinking Animal Planter from Firebox.
These adorable animal-shaped planters need very little human attention. They help you reap the benefits of having healthy, sweet-smelling miniature plants without lifting a finger. All they need is a bowl of water from which the planter can take a sip with their tongue, and the plants on their backs will be supplied with delicious nourishment for a long time. 
People who want one of these can choose from four different ceramic animals, each with their own plant perched on their cute little heads (these can be exchanged for a plant of your choice).
The cat has a wild strawberry plant, the frog has a mint plant, the dog has a clover plant, and the panda has a basil plant on its back. Interested buyers can choose their favorite mini animal, or buy all of them and make a cute collection.
From the numerous five star reviews for the Drinking Animal Planter, it’s safe to say that this cute addition to any window sill lives up to its name. As one buyer commented: “Very easy to set up! Will keep you updated when it has sprouted! (Then it will be 5 stars! I have many plants.)”
Each order of the Peropon Drinking Animal Planter comes in a box that includes the water bowl, seeds, soil, and ceramic planter, which measures approximately 7cm (W) x 7.5cm (H) x 10cm (D).
Setting up the planter is easy since all you have to do is to fill the planter with soil, place the seeds in the soil, and soak the tongue in the bowl of water. The planter promises to take care of the rest; just remember to refill the bowl with water when it’s running low. 
To ensure that your plants will grow healthy and beautiful in the ceramic stubby-legged pet planters, you can place them in a spot exposed to a safe amount of sunlight, such as a windowsill or a desk.
