Youâ€™ve probably never needed a 4-tier vertical planter, but if you did, you might be delighted with this rocket planter!
Four stacked planting areas are available in this rocket, letting you create your own unique succulent or cactus arrangement. Add in a trailing plant like String of Pearls, Burroâ€™s Tail, or String of Bananas for something that will really stand out. Best for outdoor use in a place that’s safe from heavy winds and gusts.

If youâ€™re thinking of ordering this planter, some assembly is required! The entire kit contains:
- Stages 1, 2, and 3
- Steel engine base
- 16 small screws (M3x20 set screws)
- Assembly instructions
OPTIONAL: You can choose the “Kit without Stage 2” option to have 3 planting areas instead of 4. In this case, you would receive Stages 1 and 3, the Steel engine, 12 screws, and the assembly instructions.
To summarize, assembly involves sliding the first stage onto the engine and screwing it in with 4 screws. Once Stage 1 is installed, slide Stage 2 into the top of Stage 1 and attach with the screws. Slide Stage 3 into the top of Stage 2 and attach with screws.
The stages MUST be installed onto the steel base in order to be usable. Do not plant in the stages until they are securely attached to the steel engine.
To keep the center of gravity low, plant Stage 1 first. Two people are suggested for planting, as one person can hold the planter still while the other places the plants inside. Continue to the 2nd lowest planting area, then the 3rd, and finish with the topmost planter area carefully.
There are drainage holes in each stage of this planter. Watering from the top will drain the water from the topmost planter through to the one below, and will water each planter below it. Any excess water will drain out from the engine through a small porthole. See the action here: https://youtu.be/lh5FnkgYCxw
