These clay pots were designed and made by hand specifically to help you grow spectacular Masdevallias, Miltoniopsis
and other orchids that like cool, damp conditions.
They have a clay cone in the center and the drain holes are elevated slightly above the bottom of the pot, so the
pot holds a small amount of water at the bottom after watering.
are fairly porous and absorb that water quickly. The water then evaporates from the outside of the pot and down through the
center cone. This acts as an evaporative cooler and keeps the media around the roots 8 to 10 degrees cooler than it
normally would be.
We started making and using these pots last year
and the difference in how well our mazzies and milts grow and bloom in them is amazing.
They grow at least twice as fast as the plants in plastic pots on the bench right beside them.
These pots are handmade from white clay and there are slight variations in size.
They come in small, medium and large.
These are perfect
for Masdevallias, Miltoniopsis, Phragmipediums and any plants that like cool, wet conditions. The pictures show the pots,
and one of our Masdevallias growing happily in one of the pots.

One of the nice things about
these pots is that they quickly attract a little algae, giving them that wonderful antique orchid pot look.
