    "My girlfriend can never raise her succulents right and she was getting so sad about it. I did my research on self-watering planters to check if this'll help her. After 5 minutes on google, got this for her and so far, her plants have gotten through their 2 month mark (the longest a plant has ever survived in her hands). She's so happy. Buying more pots and plants for her! πŸ’―πŸŒžπŸ’•"
