    Product Information

    The pots are made from a composite ‘fibrestone’ material combining polyresin, fibreglass and crushed stone to give a concrete like look and feel, while remaining light weight and durable.

    All our pots are designed in Sydney and handmade in Vietnam.

    Yes! They sure are. With the help of moulds the pots are produced and finished entirely by hand.

    The 'fibrestone' material is slightly porous so the inside of every pot is finished with 2 coats of a waterproof membrane. We recomend placing a plasstic tub or bucket inside each of your pots to catch the water that drains through your nurserry pot, while not necessary, it makes it easy to empty if you ever need to. It's also another layer of protection in case your pot is ever damaged.

    The mulch rings are made from galvanished steel and finished in a black powdercoat.

    This allows the plant to remain in its plastic nursery pot, suspended by the mulch ring and concealed by pebble or bark mulch. When watered the water drains through the nursery pot into the bottom of the fibrestone pot which acts as a reservoir. This set up is standard practise in the interior plantscaping industry.

    The largest pot in each set takes a 300mm nursery pot, sometimes referred as a 12 inch pot.The medium sized pot (the smallest in the BAJA set of 2) takes a 250mm nursery pot, sometimes referred to as a 10 inch pot.The smallest pot in the TOKO, ALTA and OSLO sets takes a 200mm nursery pot, sometimes referred to as an 8 inch pot.These are the most common pots sizes you'll find at your local nursery and the staff will know what you're talking about!

    The easiest thing to do is ask the nursery staff. Otherwise you can measure the diameter of the pot or you look under the base where the size should be written and may be in the form of a product code e.g. P200SLTL or RRSTS200 for a 200mm pot.

    In this case the best thing to do is pot it up into the correct nursery pot size. Your local nursery will likley have 2nd hand ones which they will give away. Otherwise they can be purchased for a couple of dollars from most nurseries and hardwares stores such as Bunnings and Mitre10.

    Sorry, the TOKO, ALTA & OSLO pots are only available in a set of 3 and the BAJA pots in a set of 2.

    Sorry, we can't mix colours or styles as the pots are pre-packaged in their respective sets. Doing this allows us to minimise transport costs and offer our pots at what we think is a great price.

    There's a number of reason's, here's the main 3:

    Drainage- A healthy plant needs adequate drainage. Our system allows excess water not held by the soil to drain through to the resevoir.

    Self watering - By inserting a cloth wick through one of the nursery pot drainge holes into the plants root ball, the plant will overtime beable to draw water from the resevoir as needed and go weeks if not months between watering.

    Changing plants - Indoor plants will eventaully need to be changed over and this makes it easy. Whether your plant is suffering from a lack of light, has outgrown it's sunny spot, or it's just time to chage things up - simply push aside your mulch, lift out your plant still in it's nusery pot and drop your new one in. Easy.

    Yes you can, but please consider whether they will be exposed to rain. As the pots don't have drainage holes if left in the rain they will fill up with water. So if you're using them outside and not undercover they'll need to have drainage holes drilled which is easy to do. If you let us know at the time of purchase we will happily do this for you, otherwise simply use a drill with a masonary or multipurpose drill bit.
