Rain 17 Clear Nursery Pot - 17cm x 15cm - from $1.50 each
*Buy singles for $1.65 each*
*Save & get 6 for $9 ($1.50 each)*
What was I thinking? Now I've gone clear, I have no idea why I bought solid-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 9 sizes. This is the Rain 17, the second-to-largest size, measuring 17cm wide across the top x 15cm tall and 13cms wide across the base. A perfect size for medium to large plants and adding a moss pole for your climbers while leaving plenty of room for roots.
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 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 want to protect shelves from water damage, just tuck your clear pot into a cover pot. The Rain 17 fit both the 18cm Elho and 20cm Elho cover pot sizes. In the 18cm they are a snug fit, so for a looser fit with more airflow go for a 20cm. .
Just repotted all my plants into the clear pots. So now I can see when my plants need watering no more guess work 🙌🏻
