If you are developing bonsai trees these are the ideal containers.

Produced by Deroma in Italy these unglazed containers are of a high quality and fired to higher temperatures than cheaper alternatives. This means that the containers best mimic the growing conditions of a future bonsai containers and also do not lose moisture too rapidly.

Although you may choose to use the plastic trays we offer for propagation, these clay containers are superior especially if you are developing conifers which prefer a drier growing medium. Not only is there a significant difference in the manner which plastic and fired clay transmit or lose moisture, but also in the degree of thermal insulation. With these ceramic containers the rise to daytime temperature and drop to nighttime is buffered or slower; with plastic containers these changes are rapid which stresses the bonsai more.
