For growing succulents, orchids, developing bonsai or more, these containers produced by Deroma in Italy are ideal.
These unglazed containers are of a high quality and fired to higher temperatures than cheaper alternatives. This means that the containers will not crack easily in especially cold conditions.
Although you may choose to use theplastic trayswe offer for propagation, these clay containers are superior and rather than perish in the sun it will develop character with time. 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 plants more.
Note! Growing in unglazed containers such as these, moisture loss is higher compared to glazed pots. If you want to combat this, rather choose Japanese Marukou containers which are fired at higher temperatures and resist mould growth.
