Rain 14 Clear Nursery Pot - 14cm x 12.5cm - from $1 each
*Buy singles for $1.20 each*
*Save & get 6 for $6 ($1 each)*
What was I thinking? Now I've gone clear, I have no idea why I bought coloured pots all this time. I love being able to see the moisture level and monitor plant root health without having to disturb my plants to sneak a peek.
Rain Clear Pots come in 4 sizes. This is the Rain 14 which measures a smidge under 14cm wide across the top x 12.5cm tall and 10cms wide across the base.
What are Rain clear pots made of?
Rain pots are recyclable (recycle code 5), made of the same type of thermoplastic used for food, for everything from kids lunchboxes to medicine bottles. I prefer this type of plastic for plants because it has:
- High chemical resistance to reduce leaching, making them a better choice when using fertiliser so nutrients stay available to roots and don't leach into the plastic and build-up over time.
- High heat resistance, handy for sun lovers indoors, and for cleaning with hot enough water to kill any baddies if you ever get pests. Also top rack safe in the dishwasher.
- Great clarity for use when you want to see what's inside, ideal to keep an eye on root health.
- Low moisture loss making it easier to predict when your plants need watering again, and a great option for heated, dry-air conditions like a typical kiwi winter.
- BPA free for peace of mind.
Support ridges for extra strength
Although harder to see once potted up, look closely and you'll see the Rain pots have fine support ridges running down the inside of the pots (they are smooth on the outside). These add extra strength and sturdiness, great for plants on root roids that like to get pushy, like ZZ plants. This design allows for strength while still being thin enough to retain high clarity, so you can easily monitor root health. Still thick enough to reuse over and over. Definitely not a single-use throw-away.
Drainage for water and air flow
I love the simple yet clever drainage design on the Rain pots. 8 decent sized drainage holes for free flow of water with a raised sectional design to increase airflow and reduce the risk of fungi and root rot.
Which cover pots do these fit?
If your plant's roots don't care what pot they're in, but you prefer clear pots anyway for your peace of mind, or you need to protect shelves from water damage, or you like to bottom water, just tuck your clear pot into a cover pot.
Rain 14 fit the 16cm Elho cover pots in Brussels, B For Soft and Vibes, however may need some pebbles added at the bottom to lift the clear pot edge up closer to the edge of the cover pot depending on what you prefer. You get a decent amount of breathing room around the edges in the 16cm cover pots so you don't end up with those little fuzzy egg-like fungi setting up home (called saprophytic fungi), which love it moist with low airflow. Not a tight fit, so easy to lift in and out for watering.
