The perfect way to use those extra teacups or mugs.

These inserts are designed to water your African violets from the bottom to protect the crowns from getting wet. Pour the water into your favorite teacup, mug, creamer or small container and it wicks through the porous clay of the inserts to the roots of the plants. Depending on the humidity and temperature, your plants will be happy for two to three weeks. Philodendrons, Begonias, Streptocarpus, ivy, and many other moisture loving houseplants will benefit from this system. These inserts are perfect for starting violet leaves or displaying mini plants.

The inserts were poured, fired and painted in our shop. We paint three to four coats of quality glaze. As a result, the insert has a bright glossy white finish.

The planting area in each insert is approx 2" wide and 2 1/4" deep.
