Nothing says spring like more plants. They make for atmospheric decor. They help purify the air. And they can bring life into the house! That is, if you manage to keep them alive.

To that end, we can all use a little help sometimes. So, without further ado, here are 7 self-watering planters that will make it easier for those of us lacking a green thumb or two. Typically, these planters come equipped with a bottom reservoir for storing water and then slowly feeding it back to the soil through wicking. This means less frequent watering for you, and a better shot at avoiding overwatering or underwatering. Take a look.
