This Styish Planter is Easy to Assemble and Wheels Make it Easy to Move

The Calypso Planter allows the roots of plants go through the small openings in the double bottom accessing as much water as they need, while the water level indicator helps prevent the planter from being over-watered. This system helps plants grow much efficiently and live longer. In addition, the planter comes with lockable wheels allowing easy repositioning of the entire unit. The Calypso Planter can be used both indoors and outdoors making it great for moving sensitive plants indoors during the winter. With its large water capacity this unit can also be left alone for more than a few days – take a 2 week vacation! BPA free polypropylene material is safe for growing all types of plants including vegetables.

Instructions showed drilling 2 holes in bottom of Exaco calypso planter where video does not show drilling holes. Holes needed or not. Thank you.

Jonah D. | 3/8/21

Hi Jonah,

Depending on the usage and placement of your planter you may want to drill the drainage holes. If you are using indoors or in place where you will be doing controlled water or do not want water draining out, please do not drill the holes. If you are placing it outdoors where it may receive a lot of rain, we recommend drilling the holes to let any superfluous water collect. There is a reservoir for water in the bottom layer – the inset holes will allow water to collect in the reservoir but not higher.

Thanks and let me know if you have an additional questions, - Claudia, Customer Support.

When used outdoors the excess rain water needs to drain. Where is the overflow or do I have to drill one? If I do, where should I cut it?

AnneMarie A. | 5/20/19

Hi AnneMarie,

Thank you for reaching out.

Yes, when used outdoors, you will want to drill drain holes to prevent excess water. To retain the use of the reservoir, turn the planter over and drill holes inside the tip of the conical inset – this still allows water to collect in the reservoir while letting the rest overflow. See image below – drill inside the holes at the red arrows.

Thanks and let me know if you have an additional questions, - Claudia, Customer Support.

Do the wheels lock on the planter? If so, how?

Mary | 3/26/2016

Hello, Thank you for visiting our website. Yes the wheel do lock on a Calypso planter – look at the attached assembly instructions: there is a lever on 2 wheels which you can push down with your toes. It locks the front two wheels.

Thanks, Customer Support.
