Echo Planter Care
The Echo cork planter is a handcrafted item, there may be small variations in colour, grain and size. This planter does not have a drainage hole.
Can I plant directly in the cork planter?
It is possible, if you’re a green fingered pro.
Because this planter doesn’t have drainage holes, the best thing is to place the little pot that came with your plant, inside the cork planter. This way, you can take advantage of the pot’s drainage holes that allow excess water to seep out after watering, and help protect your plant’s roots from rot.
What’s the best way to water my plant?
A smart little tip is lining the bottom of the planter with kitchen foil. It acts as a lightweight DIY saucer and it comes in especially handy for hanging planters.
Water thirsty plants
A water bath is the way to go. Plants love it!
Place the plant (with inner pot) in a sink or container for an hour or so, once the soil is nicely saturated with water, place the plant back in the cork planter, making sure no more water is seeping through the bottom.
Cacti and succulents
As long as you have lined the cork planter with kitchen foil, you can water it from the top. For these types of plants, a little bit of water goes a long way. You want to ensure that you water sparingly and slowly, so the water gets evenly distributed through the soil without pooling at the bottom.
How does water affect my Echo cork planter?
Cork is a breathable and porous material, any water left at the bottom of the planter can seep through the walls and leave watermarks on the outside.
This won’t damage the planter and I personally love the unique and characterful markings, like aged terracotta pots. If you prefer the pristine look, simply make sure there is no leftover water at the base of the planter.
