It’s never been trendier to have a lush, plant-filled home. With snake plants popping up all over Instagram and the “jungalow” look going strong, it can seem like everybody is a total natural when it comes to keeping plants alive. But here’s a secret: Even the most forgetful plant lover can bring some green into her life with the help of self-watering planters. Just fill ’em up once a month or so and you’re all set, thanks to a wick mechanism that draws water into the soil when needed. You’ll never under- (or over-) water your little green buddies again. Now you just need to go plant shopping.
