Title: WICK WATERING POT COVER SYSTEM
Abstract:
An inexpensive wick watering system for potted plants and flowers is disclosed. An inner grower pot containing a plant/flower and soil has holes in its bottom surface along with a central indentation. The outer decorative pot into which the inner pot is inserted has a central protrusion which accepts the central indentation of the inner grower pot and a hole inserted into the center. A Wicking insert is inserted into the bottom of the outer decorative pot before inserting the inner grower pot with holes in its bottom surface. This wicking insert works to transfer water sitting in the volume created between the inner grower pot and the outer decorative pot when the inner grower pot is placed inside the outer decorative pot due to the soil's natural ability to be infiltrated and naturally hydrated by the water. Water that rises up to the hole in the center portion of the outer pot central protrusion drains from the outer pot.
