A craterpot is a unique and cleverly designed insert which when placed in a planting environment such as a plant pot, retains a percentage of the water from irrigation or rain to maintain a moist environment for longer. In essence, a craterpot is a saucer except that it exists on the inside of the plant pot. This means craterpots are not limited to plant containers they can be used in external environments too.
When a craterpot is placed under the surface, the moisture caannot stagnate nor can it develop disease or breed pests and it can only evaporate at a controlled rate largely determined by capillary action and the plants requirements because it is naturally buffered from the external environment.
The craterpot system is head and shoulders above every other system.
Craterpot is a start-up business.
Craterpots are produced in a variety of sizes and capacities to suit every type of application.
Craterpots allow the grower the flexibility to tailor-make environments for plants in broad scale or rural applications, plant containers, flowerpots, boxes, buckets or any other conceivable planting device. In effect, a craterpot turns the container or area into a self-watering system which can be designed to last months, weeks or a few days depending on the requirement of the individual plants, trees or lawn.
In plant containers, to adjust, simply swap the craterpot for a higher or lower capacity craterpot during re-potting or whenever desired. Changing the craterpot in rural applications, lawns and natural environments is generally unnecessary.

The above example demonstrates converting a typical plant pot into a self-maintaing device. The container does not require modification to adopt the conversion. The (Craterpot) insert is simply placed inside the container, remaining unfixed. So, it matters not what type of container one uses, any container type or no container at all can be converted into a CPP.
The Craterpot functions as a store for moisture and nutrients and maintains a stable environment. It also prevents nutrients leeching during irrigation procedures and acts like a buffer that reduces plant shock in all situations.
Nutrients now remain inside the Craterpot, inside the plant container, and remain accessible to the plant.
We say, when an opportunity like this arises – the product of the millennium – you should grab it with both hands. And reap the inevitable rewards.
Provides water/nutrients in: plant pots and containers, gardens, nature strips, parks, nurseries, lawns…
A planting environment should provide for a wide range of variables:
Stage of growth.
Maintenance and labour.
Craterpot satisfies all plant performance requirements.
The Craterpot once installed works for ever; it has no batteries, no electronics and no working parts;
it’s cost effective, simple, never fails and takes no time or effort to install;
it maintains plant health, saves water and fertilizer and, time and energy – it’s a genius.
