These planters are to mitigate heat issues! In fact, by using the heat generated by sun, the plant is watered. The sun heats the dirt first because it is a dark color. The heat is trapped in the glass with the water and some rocks for temperature stabilization and drainage. The head makes the water evaporate. It condenses on the sides of the glass because the air outside the glass has not been heated and trapped like that inside. Not only does the plant get its water from this convection effect, but also the dirt is cooled by the condensed water that drips on it from above and the side. The exposure to UV light from the sun also keeps the water clean and the roots healthy. Exposing roots that were previously in dirt to the sun will kill them. Allowing roots to slowly grow into areas that get sun makes the plant hardier. Also, it is easy to see when the plant needs some water. The jade shown below only needs watering about once a year.
