Benefits

  • Bonsai: For rapid trunk and roots development of certain species
  • Orchids: Promotes airflow around the roots preventing rotting.
  • Pond Lilies: For healthy pond plants.
  • Hydoponics: Ample drainage provides rapid exchange of liquid around the root zone.  

Features

  1. Produced in South Africa for our extreme conditions
  2. Ample drainage space.
  3. Rigid lip for added structural support.
  4. Convenient size for a variety of plant sizes.

For bonsai growers

Colander + Fast draining growing medium + Lots of fertilizer + Lots of water = Accelerated tree development

For growing medium I would suggest the Professional Mix (LECAcombined with White Peat) and for fertilizer I would suggest our top selling organic BonsaiBoost. Alternatively akadama and pumice for the ultimate solution.

    Fibrous Root Development

    I'll have to admit,the fast draining medium used with these containers made me a bit nervous,as it dries out quickly,and for anyone who's at work for long hours,I would advise adding some akadama or mulching to the professional growing medium,the medium does spill a little,so cutting out a circle in your drainage mesh for the bottom will solve the problem.After the first water the peat and leca bind a bit so dont panic if you're trying this out for the first time.

    Thanks for these comments Ismaeel. Yes the colander method requires that you keep a careful eye on watering. It is also why not all trees can be grown in these containers. Using too water retentive growing media however negates the benefit of the container too so the Professional Growing Medium is still what I would advise, plus lots of fertilizer = explosive growth.

    Plastic Growing Container, Colander Type, 12.5cm

    These colanders are a good size and larger than any others I’ve found in stores, and will allow good root development for seedlings.

    They are really strong and a perfect size for growing things on in the ground. Very happy with the quality and very well priced.

    Great product at good price

    This is my first attempt at colander planting and I find the size and sturdiness of these containers ideal. I have already repotted some of my deciduous trees into these and I look forward to trying them for my figs in summer. I think I will need to order another batch of these soon.
