set up a space at the bottom where water can collect, put a piece of pipe down through your planting soil that you can use to siphon extra water out if it gets too soggy. tip the planter slightly towards the end you have that pipe in.

there are very small aquarium pumps which can be used to empty and they don't even cost all that much either. just plug it in for a few minutes once in a while to empty out extra water. you might need to cover the intake with a sponge or cloth to keep gunk out of the pump or the tube, etc.
The aquarium pump seems to be a great idea. I have an aquarium pump that I can use as well. thank you for the idea. that will help me a lot.. :celebrate:clap:clap

I love mine that has 2 blueberries in it. But it does have a couple of drainage holes. Even with 2 drainage holes I would think you could still use it as a brooder.
