This planter, A.K.A strawberry planter, was planted with the plants' needs in mind. The very bottom plants are Portulaca, very drought tolerant. They thrive on the bottom because they won't get over saturated.
The top plant is a New Guinea Impatiens, it likes water and will droop when it's in need of a drink! The allysum and lobelia are planted in the middle and will get watered when the New Guinea Impatiens tells me it's thirsty!
Honestly though, I do water my plants before they droop but once in awhile, you know.
