Coconut fibre pots are made by hand in Sri Lanka and help to stimulate the local economy.
These pots require very little energy resource and are a much more sustainable solution than plastic pots.
The pot itself create an ideal environment for plants they retain moisture and allow air to flow around roots.
The pot can be composted at around 4 years - this gives plenty of time for your plant to outgrow its current pot. The pot itself is rich in carbon and helps to balance the nitrogen-rich materials like grass clippings and kitchen waste.
HOW DO I LOOK AFTER THEM?
There are two different types of coconut pots we currently stock.
The Kokodama pots have an insert (like an extra pot) inside the coconut pot. This means there is no need to purchase another pot.
Checking the soil regularly and being careful not to over water your plant will benefit both the plant and the pot. If you do over water and find the pot becomes slightly wet don’t worry just let it fully dry out.
The Cocoz Pots are not waterproof, they can be put inside a decorative pot and taken out to water to allow to drain through. Alternatively you could just place on a saucer - this would allow the pot aerate and show off the natural beauty of the pot itself. We recommend a terracotta saucer in keeping with the earthy tones. Or even better - saucers from charity shops to add some character.
