IKEA, being IKEA, seems to have discontinued the bestest pot ever, their PS Fejo. A few days ago I noticed that it was not part of their 2009 catalog.
What’s so great about it? It is a self watering pot on wheels. Plastic wheels that don’t rust. Wheels that have rarely given me any problem. As I like to move my plants around in the backyard, the wheels are an important feature.
I usually drill three small holes near the bottom side of the pot, a bit above the reservoir, so I can keep them outside. The little indicator, that pops up when the reservoir is full, sometimes fails after a few seasons, bit the main thing, the wheels and the integrity of the pot is longer lasting.
So I went to IKEA and bought 5 Fejos, seeing that the College Park location had about 100 in stock.
