After many months of design work and testing prototypes, we have just completed the T2 pre-production tool trial of our new single-cell square planter. The tool trial was successful and now it is being shipped to Australia where it will be commissioned by Reln Industries. The tool weighs 4,180kgs. Reln will start moulding the first planters in early December.

The new WaterUps® square planter will be the perfect wicking bed solution for smaller balconies or to grow some leafy greens or herbs. Given its size, you could also grow a tomato or chilli plant. It would also make a great low maintenance solution for decorative ornamentals, particularly for those people who forget to water!

The dimensions of the new WaterUps® Square Planter are 480mm(L) x 480mm(W) x 400mm(H). Like our other wicking system products, the square planter will be manufactured in Australia from recycled polypropylene.
