We had to go to Germany to find these special deep pots which we wanted for growing Paphiopedilums, Phragmipediums (Lady Slipper Orchids), and other deep rooted orchids and prized plants in. They are also terrific for Rose growing. What distinguishes these pots in particular is their depth, relative to their diameter. The 5" wide model is a full 7.25 inches tall and the 6" wide model is even taller, at 8 inches.
The color of each is a beautiful dark terracotta and they are both finished on the inside in black. The rim is a strong rolled edge also done in black and both are very visually appealing. The drainage on both of these is spectacular, with a total of 16 substantial holes, 4 ports to drain away water and 4 wide "feet" for excellent stability. Even the feet have built-in channels for water and air flow.
They stack beautifully, either in the same size or both sizes for storage when not in use.
Hands down, these are the nicest deep pots we have found, and we have been searching for some time. Any old deep pot wouldn't make the grade, but these do. We had to search half way around the world to get them, and we think you will agree they are perfect for those deep rooted applications.
