I am having difficulties seeing the blue teardrops. How can I resolve this?

Water level indicators can shift during shipping. If your blue indicators are not coming up as you fill the container follow the steps below:
1. If using outdoors make sure you have removed the red plug to drain out excess water. Indicator should not show full until water is coming out through overflow drain.
2. When water is flowing through overflow and indicator is not showing full then go ahead and remove indicator from its shaft. (Wedging a small coin under edge of clear cap can be helpful.)
3. Turn your indicator upside down and make sure all blue tabs show at the top. Then indicator can be tested in a large bucket of water by submerging the gauge in the bucket and pulling it out a few times. When indicator is submerged blue tabs should be moving to the top, as you lift up the indicator they should dissapear.
4. Once tested, return indicator to container and it should reflect correctly.
Here is a quick video showing you how to test indicators. If you have any issues reach out to us via our website chat or email us at

I am changing out my plants. How can I clean my TruDrop planter?

When seasonally replanting, drain the water reservoir from your Trudrop planter before removing all plant material and potting mix from the planter. Once drained, the reservoir can be cleaned with just clear water or alternatively a solution of 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide to 1 gallon of water can be used. To use the
latter, return the drain plug to its position, fill with the solution, swish the liquid around the planter and let sit for 30 minutes, then unplug and rinse with clear water. Here is a quick video on preparing a planter for repotting.

What is the red and white cap for?

The red cap on the TruDrop One planters covers the overflow drain. When using the planter outdoors this should be removed to allow excess rain water to egress. Click to view planter diagram. Here is a quick video on how to water your planters.

How is my TruDrop helping the environment?

When we design our products, we consider the full lifecycle from manufacturing to disposal to offer environmentally friendly products.
In our plant: Our manufacturing is always held to high standards and efficient use of energy with little or no byproducts.
In distribution: Because our products are lightweight and unbreakable, we use less packaging and ship with less energy use.
In use: TruDrop self-watering uses less water and fertilizers than traditional containers. Our 10 year warranty shows we are interested in longevity so our products don't need to be replaced for a long time. Our timeless designs take this into consideration as well.
In disposal: All of our materials are 100% recyclable to facilitate eventual disposal.
To learn more about TruDrop self-watering watch our video. Please read more about our Sustainability efforts here.

How do I get started with my new TruDrop planter?

Then proceed to your Planting Guide. For our new Pinch Planters use this guide.

Does self-watering cause root rot?

On the contrary, our TruDrop self-watering system was developed with the experience of professional growers who often water from underneath rather than on top. This allows roots to decide for themselves how much water they need. Water thirsty plants will grow to the bottom, while drought tolerant plants will remain further up. For those curious to see the inside view this picture to see how healthy roots look after growing inside a Crescent Garden TruDrop planter.

How does TruDrop One help grow healthier plants?

Our TruDrop self-watering system is designed to water roots from the bottom instead of top watering. This avoids fungus and mold from accumulating on the surface keeping folliage healthier. Fertilizers also remain in the water cavity for continual feeding growing great plants. For more details on how TruDrop works watch this video.

Can I grow a tomato plant in my TruDrop?

Yes, tomatoes love growing in the Trudrop planters because of the consistent watering. For an 18" Pot, we would recommend growing tomato varieties that stay short such as a Bush Earl Girl, Celebrity, Tiny Treats or Bush Goliath - any variety that stays under 3 feet tall. Here's a great informational link from Bonnie Plants on tomato varieties available in the U.S. Speak to your local grower or garden center to find the correct variety for you.

My plants are waterlogged, flooded in my TruDrop planter?

Ocassionally debris or roots can reach overtime into your overflow drain. If your planter is empty just turn it around and use a wire hanger or skewer to penetrate the overflow, (see video). If planted, empty your water cavity first by releasing the main drain on your planter. Then find a handy helper to elevate your planter so you can do the same.

How do I insert my white threaded drain plug?

To insert your white drain plug first use Teflon tape along the threads. This will ensure a tight seal. Next position the plug, carefully lining the threads, and twist in. Finally, use an adjustable wrench to seal. Watch this video for a quick demonstration.

What is the HF self-watering planters?

These planters are designed and manufactured in Spain and are available in a variety of metal, leather and wood finishes that makes them unique. For more details on HF planters click here.

How do I select the right size of pot?

Never go too small is our rule of thumb; planters should be proportionate to the architecture of a room, and should also give your plant room for growth so using a bigger container than the original growing container is the key. Learn more about selecting sizes in this video.
