As it is a handmade planter, there might be small variations in colour, grain and size. This planter does not have a drainage hole.

Yes, you can plant directly in the planter.
You can pot directly into the cork planter or place the little plastic pot that came with your plant, inside the cork planter. This way, you can take advantage of the pot’s drainage holes that allow excess water to seep out after watering and help protect your plant’s roots from rot.

What’s the best way to water my plant?

A smart little tip is lining the bottom of the planter with kitchen foil. It acts as a lightweight DIY saucer and it comes in especially handy for hanging planters.

Place the plant (with inner pot) in a sink or container for an hour or so, once the soil is nicely saturated with water, place the plant back in the cork planter, making sure no more water is seeping through the bottom.

How does water affect my cork planter?

Cork is a breathable and porous material, any water left at the bottom of the planter can seep through the walls and leave watermarks on the outside.

This won’t damage the planter and I personally love the unique and characterful markings, like aged terracotta pots.  If you prefer the pristine look, simply make sure there is no leftover water at the base of the planter.

Cactus Care Tips: The most common question I get asked is 'How NOT to kill your Cactus'

So here it is plain and simple...

 

 Cactus Tips: Luckily our little prickly friends are hearty creatures & are built for mother nature's land of neglect... the desert. The most common cactus or succulent killer is over watering. Your cactus wants  'dry feet' as its typical terrains are dry & arid, so go easy on H2O so the roots don't rot.

         Only water when soil dries. This can range depending the environment, but usually once a month in cooler seasons & no more than twice a month in warmer seasons. During the winter cold season cacti and succulents become dormant so you do not need to water them, give them a lil winter break. Ideally use a spray bottle or mister & try not to water the actual plant, but the soil directly around the base. 

        Your concrete planter porous so the pot itself recreates a rocky base and imitates the natural layers for drainage that the plants enjoy from their desert home. Also each parcel includes a layer of extra stones for the pot bottom to help with drainage for roots & extra acidic cactus soil. As a rule of thumb it's good to re-pot your cactus or succulent every 2-4 years, either if it's grown enough to go up a pot size, but mainly to replenish the soil's nutrients.

        Cacti & Succulents prefer light & warmth, but avoid direct sun as they can burn. To assist with growth & flowering use cactus feed in every other watering.

         Thank you for your support & I hope your purchase brings you a little sunshine indoors.
