ELHO Basics Transparent Nursery Pot - 17cm wide x 16cm high

$4.50 NZD

No hiding away with this chap. Ideal for keeping an eye on moisture level, root health and development. A great one for use with leca too.

Popular for healthier, happier Orchids and other epiphytes that like to climb up and grow on other plants, like Ferns and Aroids, to ensure light gets to their root system. 

circle of 8 drainage holes around the bottom avoids root rot and keeps water draining freely. Can also be used for plants who don't need light to reach their roots. Just pop inside a cover pot, and it still makes it so easy to lift the nursery pot out of the cover pot to check root health and moisture level anytime.

The Elho Transparent Pot comes in 3 sizes. This is for the 17cm wide x 16cm tall size. Thicker than a typical nursery pot, made to last and reuse again and again. Not perfectly clear (you'll want the Teku for that), but a thicker, sturdier pot than the Teku. Still with just the right amount of flex to gently, easily slide a plant out when it's time to move to a larger pot. 

Also available separately in 13cm or 15cm wide sizes also. This is for the 17cm.

Like all the goodies Elho makes, it's both a great price and great for the environment. Made from at least 70% recycled materials, 100% recyclable, and manufactured with 100% wind energy.

"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. The pipette for measuring the correct amount was such a great inclusion, and the personalised message on the package was very cool. Definitely my go to shop for plant supplies now.
