For some applications self watering containers are useful, but basically they will lull you into not paying attention to your plants. One of the obvious problems with self-watering containers is that you must still keep the reservoir full. If you are standing next to your houseplant with a watering devise, why not just water the plant , IF IT NEEDS WATERING!
Spending a short amount of time examining the needs of any plant is the best way to keep them happy and healthy. Check for moisture in the soil, dust the leaves if need be, and check for pests. Say a few kind words to your favorite houseplant, they really like it. Your plants are working for you 24/7 cleaning the air and releasing fresh oxygen. Spending that few seconds or minutes will be time well invested.
