Crew Mini Propagation Pot - 5.5cm x 6.5cm ROUND - BLACK
The teeny weeny Crew Mini Propagation Pot is both cute and practical. The perfect size for propagating cuttings and growing seedlings and baby plants without taking up a tonne of room, and more importantly, less soil / substrate means less chance of root rot for your babies. This is the Black, also available in White
Actually has decent drainage holes too! Best used with drainage mesh. Other mini pots I've tried have tiny or only one drainage hole, or just not enough of them to keep that water moving and free-draining, away from precious new baby roots.
They measure 5.5cms tall x 6.5cms diameter at the top and 5.5cms diameter at the bottom. Being quite squat, their lower centre of gravity makes them more balanced compared to standard pots, so less likely to tip. Handy when using lighter substrates like sphagnum moss, succulent mix, perlite, or (my favourites to use) fern fibre or hydromix.
Made of a rigid, yet thin enough plastic, to give them just the right amount of flex to easily, gently squeeze babies out when they're ready for an upgrade. Wider at the top for easier plant removal. Give the pot a wash and you're ready to re-use. They may be cheap but they're definitely tough enough to use again and again.
Size? Tick. Drainage? Tick. Price? Tick!
Go on, get a few, and get propping!
PS: This is my own combo that works a treat for my cuttings... dip in Clonex rooting gel (get the purple one), give them a soak or water with Groconut, a natural rooting and growth hormone from coconuts, then to keep up that nitrogen and calcium for faster root growth, stronger roots, and healthier, faster growing stems and leaves, water with a little GT CCS every time I water, which is a specialist rooting fertiliser for propagation and baby plants.
Some nutrients are mobile - your plant will move them around where they're needed - but some (like calcium) are immobile. That means once there's a deficiency, that root or stem or leaf's cells will be deficient for life. Calcium is not a deficiency you want in a newly propped cutting! Look for a fertiliser with calcium (GT and Dyna-Gro are two options).

Flat rate shipping is $5.90 nationwide (or $9.50 for rural). Order as many products as you like without paying anything extra for shipping. The only exceptions are plants and fragile or oversize products (like handmade pottery and coffee table books), which have their own rates.
For $2 you can upgrade to signature required. Well worth it for anything valuable or limited edition that can't be replaced. Choosing signature required gives both of us the ability to claim if anything goes wrong with the courier. Signature required is flat rate $7.90 nationwide (or $12.50 for rural).

"Super impressed with this business. Something that is lost nowadays, is customer service. This however is not the case with Anna from “Love that Leaf”. Very happy with my purchase, very happy with the product information provided and very happy with the quick shipping and great packaging. Thanks!" Melayna Anderson
"By far the best customer care I've had in a long time. Website is such a wealth of information and the email with instructions for use after my purchase was fantastic.
