    What types of filament are best for pots? PLA seemed to deform for me, but may have been the summer sun…

  2. mamber1100 on September 17, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Nope. 3D printing is not waterproof. Water is leaking through microholes

  3. Marcelo Menegali on September 17, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Another cool idea is printing a support for a camera to do time-lapses of growing plants!

  4. Luis Larrea on September 17, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Rockwool? Isn’t that bad for you?

  5. LesRoutesDeLaSoie on September 17, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Great videos bro 👌🏼

  6. YashaHika on September 17, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    That pokeball pot is on my printer right now XD 3 hours left till I can assemble all 4 pieces

  7. Nicolas Alvargonzalez on September 17, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    You need to do "casts" that can open and close, and be shaped in Y, L, and other useful shapes, and then use them to bend and train your plant stems in the desired way, that’s useful. The rest are just pots printed in plastic…

  8. Abdon Troche on September 17, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Awesome prints!

  9. Wafer Lane on September 17, 2021 at 11:21 pm

  13. Andres Darquea on September 17, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Is there a link to the self watering tray model that appears at 0:41?

  14. Saimon 1 on September 17, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Proč to není v češtině? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Dimas Ananto on September 17, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    1:42 what software used to make those slick animation?

  17. marsgizmo on September 17, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    a very nice idea and tutorial 😊

  18. MoLassessss on September 17, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Why does water leak through my PLA? Any suggestions?

    Very well scripted, filmed and voiced! Kudos

  22. Duan Minnaar on September 17, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    What filament fid you use instead of PLA?

  23. Rafael Schridi on September 17, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    5:48 "Fusion 360 (Personal – Not for Commercial use)"
    hmmm

  24. Bhushan Gadiya on September 17, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    What material are u using for printing? Can u share the links?

  25. Steven Ryall on September 17, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Fitty jippy! 😉

  26. jvdahmen on September 17, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Wild… always thought PLA was not watertight…

  27. TheNightwalker247 on September 17, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    is it possible to print the plant pots with lots of small holes on the side? would be great for propagation to keep the plants from rootballing.

  28. Oscar gonzalez on September 17, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Good video

  29. No More BS Please on September 17, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    The issue with "self watering planters" is they require cleaning or you will have algea issues.

  30. henrique andrade on September 17, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    People just dont use a humidity sensor that has copper in it, just like the one on the video 9:01 , its poisonous for the plant and for you

  31. Chris Mayberry on September 17, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    bet that prusa kush is fire

  32. Innos on September 17, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Don´t forget that avocados are not seed true, which means you cannot get a avocado tree that has good fruits from most seeds.

  33. YoSpiff on September 17, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    There’s an "infill coaster" on Thingiverse that makes wonderful custom drip trays for plants.

  34. plokkum on September 17, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    More of this please! 👍🏻 Gardening is so satisfying. Nature is wonderful 😱😃

  35. Blue_ Wunderwaffle on September 17, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Growing avocados from seed won’t give you the desired result. The only way to get the avocados that taste good and are what you get from the store is to buy an already grown plant. All common avocados are grafted from existing plants so it is an exact clone. Anything you grow from seed will be tough, bitter, or just generally unappetizing.

  36. Casey Wessel on September 17, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Can someone share the link for the tall planter shown at 0:14 please?

  37. Chrysippus on September 17, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    My wife has a couple self-watering pots… They’re injection-molded. I don’t think that is new either. Honestly the impossible-to-mold designs and custom things that can be one of a kind are most interesting. And DIY in general.

  38. Andrew Barney on September 17, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    You didn’t mention the best plastic to use that would be UV resistant. Otherwise these pots will degrade in the sun.

  39. Rick du Toit on September 17, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    This is great, I have printed a self watering pot for the first time the other day. On a side note, do not use cyanoacrilate (super glue) to bond something that will be exposed to water. Super glue bonds instantly in the presence of moisture (think fingers), however the bond is also weakened by moisture or water. This is why the msds will state that if you bond your skin you need to run it under luke warm water in order to get, say, your fingers unstuck.

    8:36 where can I get growing LED light?

  41. Blind Vegan on September 18, 2021 at 12:02 am

    It started with a 3-D printer and ended with plant towers in every one of my windows

  42. Andrii Batyrenko on September 18, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Amazing!!! Now I know what to say to my wife in order to get her approval to buy Prusa 3d printer 🤣

  43. Finland Journey on September 18, 2021 at 12:04 am

    0:40 That water bottle pot is sure to kill your plant! Or flood your room LOL. What a disaster.

  44. Xander Rijkée on September 18, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Nicely done… this video will probably convince me to buy the mini+…

  45. 0Turbox on September 18, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Are these filaments food save?

  46. Tairone Wassup on September 18, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Can you send me a free printer so I can print these pleeeaaaasseeee

  47. nem tudom on September 18, 2021 at 12:05 am

    5:30 If you made the dovetails thinner at the back, and wider in the front, you’d only be able to insert them one way, and you wouldnt be able to overpush it the other direction

  48. Fel M on September 18, 2021 at 12:05 am

    I love those Elho-Pots, but they really are very expensive 😀

  49. Rafael Nappa on September 18, 2021 at 12:09 am

    which one is the best filament for those prints? or best recommended? PLA is enough?

  50. hapklaar on September 18, 2021 at 12:09 am

    What infill pattern was used for the plant pot with hexagons in this video? It looks funky! https://youtu.be/71-nQTSJ17Q?t=56
