These minimalist Atlas Cork Planters are sleek, simple and sustainable! This unique planter design perfectly bridges the gap between minimalist and unusual.
A contemporary cork planter is an ideal holder for your beautiful houseplants. It can also be used as a cute pencil pot thanks to the versatile and lightweight cork design.
An ideal gift, this eco-friendly planter is sure to put a smile on the face of anyone who loves all things green-fingered and natural or makes the perfect desk buddy for adding some greenery to your work space.
Beautifully crafted with love by Jenny of Mind the Cork in London, the planters are lightweight and made with sustainably sourced Portuguese cork that can be recycled or composted for the most ethical design.

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.
