Recycled Cotton Wicks

Looking for a way to keep your Plantstraws looking and working like new? The Colored Replacement Kit has got you covered!

This kit includes three recycled cotton wicks in fun, matching colors, along with a nylon line to help thread the Plantstraws. Plus, the kit comes in a cute paper pouch, making it a great gift together with a set of Plantstraws for the plant lover in your life.

Whether you're a seasoned plant parent or just experimenting, the Colored Replacement Kit is a must-have accessory to extend the life of your straws or change their appearance when matched with a transparent vase. With the extra wicks and new colors, you can create unique setups and make your plants look their best.

    How often should I replace the ropes?

    You don't have to change the wicks in your Plantstraws unless you see a change in how your plant is doing, when you're repotting or when you want to change the appearance of your setup. But when the time comes, the Colored Replacement Kit is a must-have accessory!


    - A nylon line is included to help thread the Plant Straw
    - Please note that these wicks are slightly thicker than the ones we recommend that you use to convert your Wavy Plant Pin to a wobbly Plantstraw.

    How to use Plantstraws?


    Moisten the entire wick!


    Circle a length of the wick at the bottom of the pot, or loosely around the roots.

    Pro tip: A longer length means more moisture for your plant!


    Put your plant into the pot, add soil and water and stabilize!

    You're ready to show off your new setup!

    How to install the Plantstraw?

    Q: How to install the straw?! 👀

    A: Glad you asked! It's not very complicated, and the easiest way to do it is to simply lift the plant out of its pot to get the wick down into the soil, under the roots. Or whilst repotting. Here's a few things to consider: 

    Water your plant and moisten the wick before setup to start the flow from vase to plant.

    Place one end of the Plant Straw in the vase, and the other in the plant.

    Plant Straws are asymmetric to allow for a variety of setups, so you can use either end in your plant.

    To minimize evaporation, place the end of the metal tube at least 3 cm/1 in. into the soil.

    Adjust the moisture level by placing a shorter or longer length of the wick in the pot.

    Refill and shift the water in the vase regularly. 

    Wash, cut down, or replace the wick as it wears out over time. Use a nylon thread to guide the new wick through the tube.

      How long can I leave my houseplants?

      Q: I'll be gone four weeks this summer, can I leave my plant with just a plant straw??? or how long does it last?

      A: With a Plant Straw installed - you can indeed leave your plants for quite some time and the bigger your vase/vessel is, the longer you can leave them! In addition to water though, plants need fertilizers and light.

      When indoor plants are not getting enough nutrients, they adapt by growing slower, and loose leaves. Consider a slow-release fertilizers if you want to leave for a long time. To reduce germs and bacterial build up, do not add liquid fertilizers to the water in your vase. 

      Prepare your vacation watering

      • At least as long before leaving as you plan on staying away, install the Plant Straw
      • Watch the plant over the coming weeks, and adjust the length of the wick if needed
      • Remember to swap for a larger vase if it’s emptied faster than anticipated

      Best-practice self watering

      • Do a test! Set up the plant straw before leaving, track the progress, and leave home knowing confidently how long your plants are fine for 🌱🍹
      • Less water will evaporate from the vase if it has a narrow opening, making it last longer
      • When using an organic liquid fertilizer: Flush the soil with water until the water starts leaking through the drainage holes. Let it drip off, then give your fertilizer solution of choice. Repeat this on the recommended schedule, typically 1-2 times per month
