This pot is designed with orchids in mind but may be suitable for many other plants. It is available in white, red or black clay.
There are many types of orchids but primarily the Phalaenopsis or "moth orchid" (Gk. Phalaina-moth opis-appearance) , Cymbidium or Oncidiums work well in these pots. Try a white Phalaenopsis in a white orchid pot.
These slits are for extra aeration of the roots and drainage required by some orchids. The slits are custom ordered at a $2 charge.
These pots were specifically designed for the Paphiopedilum orchid by
Kim and orchid specialist Mariko Kawaguchi of Donaromas Nursery on Martha's
Vineyard. Paphiopedilum or lady's- slipper orchid (Gk pedilon - slipper)
have a narrow deep root system and require constant moisture. Therefore,
the pot is narrow and deep made out of a black clay which is less porous
than terra cotta so that the orchid does not dry out as fast. The rich
dark color of the black clay pot compliments the ruset browns, greens
and burgundy colors of the "Paphs".
Hanging Orchid Pots
These unique pots are designed for orchids that require free drainage and aeration. Made in terra cotta clay they come in small or large sizes and each pot is one of a kind. Hang these these pots in your greenhouse or home and increase your orchid growing space.
Orchids require alot of moisture. One way to help your orchid get
more moisture in a dry winter house is to put it on a pebble tray.
This is a ceramic dish, glazed on the inside with either clay pellets
or gravel in it. You can cluster several plants in a grouping or place
one large plant on it.
For mounted miniature orchids.
Tom Pot with holes
This attractive pot is ideal for orchids like Cattleyas that like extra
aeration around their roots. These plants also like to dry out in between
watering and this pot provides just the right environment for them.

"Lady Slipper" Orchid.
