i have used these some time ago. They work well.
Already overwinter Arisaema sp. (Jack-in-the-Pulpit; Green Dragon) in 4" coir pots; purchased case to restock supply and test on plugs of additional woodland species.
Woodland wildflowers & ferns LOVE coir - already offer Uvularia clumps and ferns overwintered in 6" coir containers - no transplant shock; 'Plant-the-Pot' well received by customers. 4" proved too small for larger Trillium grandiflorum corms; ordered 5 1/4 x 4 1/2 as test; hopeful this size will prove to be both a labor and space saver for this species.

Love the coir pots! Easy to use and sooooo much better than plastic. Excellent quality and quick to ship.
these products are excellent! I have used peat pots for years and they either break down or don't dissolve once planted. the coir material allows the plant roots to breathe. Simply plant them in the garden with the pots and they take off with strong growth immediately!
Immediate delivery. Pots are perfect size to use as bluebird nesting cups. Priced well. Recommended for NC bluebird society as a source for cups. Easy and fast as Amazon.
Product is perfect for small plants
These containers were perfect for our small succulent propagation project to make our daughter's wedding center pieces to give to her guests. The fact that these can be planted directly in the ground/other planters met her theme of 'reduce,reuse,recycle', and now replant. We will buy more for future propagation jobs.
I start my tomatoes in large peat pellets. When the roots start to show on the outside of the netting, I put them in one of the 4 1/2 pots and fill around the pellet with potting soil. When the tomatoes grow enough to add more soil, I add slow release fertilizer then add the soil. I can keep adding soil as the plants grow. When the weather warms enough to put them out, they go into the ground without ever having their roots disturbed. Works great! These pots hold up well for the month or more that the plants are in the greenhouse.
Love these coir pots, BUT you do not keep enough in stock. Availability is not reliable (lately).
I try to use only the coir pots for my sets... a bit more expensive but well worth the cost. My customers love them.
