What are the overflow turrets for?

The overflow turrets, found inside pots, planters, etc., allow for excess water to flow out. We recommend adding expanded clay onto the bottom of the pot/planter up to the height of the turrets and, if necessary, also hessian to limit the dispersion of the soil above it along with the excess water.

What are the holes in the bottom of the pot for?

The holes in the bottom of the pot stop water from stagnating, thus ensuring a healthy environment for the roots of the plant. They also promote ventilation.

What are double-walled pots?

Double-walled pots consist of a single seamless structure with double watertight walls separated by an air-gap.

How to properly grow a plant in a pot cover?

The pot cover is designed to accommodate the plant already in a pot without having to transplant it. So simply put the plant with its original pot directly into the pot cover. The tray cover also serves as a saucer and water reserve. 

How should the pots be cleaned?

The pots should be cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge soaked in a neutral detergent.

How should the planters of the Up and Be up collection be prepared?

The UP and BE-UP planters have spill-holes that should not be plugged so as to avoid water from stagnating and to ensure the plants' well-being.
It is also useful to add a bottom cover of expanded clay that helps drainage. Better if you also add a sheet of hessian to prevent the dispersion of the soil above it together with the excess water.
The planters of this series do not have water reserve grills.

How should the lacquered pots be cleaned?

The lacquered pots are cleaned using soft cloths and mild detergents. In particular, avoid using products containing alcohol as they may dull the colour.

How should large pots and planters be stabilized?

Lit items should only be stabilised using the appropriate securing kits. For pots and planters, as an alternative to the kits, it is possible to add fine-grained gravel into the cavity between the pot/planter walls. In any case, we recommend not using water as a weight.

How do I use the hanging pots from the Up and Be Up collections?

The pots/planters of the Up and Be Up collections have been designed to be hooked over railings. The maximum width is 4.5 cm for the pot and 5 cm for the planter, respectively.

How do I use pots without holes?

Before putting in the potting soil and plant, we recommend creating a bottom layer of expanded clay covered with a layer of hessian, to ensure water drainage and prevent the roots from absorbing too much. Watering should be done gradually, dosing the amount of wetting to avoid excess and stagnation. Some pots without holes have a water reserve and do not need you to prepare the bottom with expanded clay. The catalogue shows the products with a water reserve.

How do I use double-walled pots?

How do I prepare balcony pots?

We recommend always placing the pots/planters with their saucers to allow excess water to drain off correctly, and contain it to create a minimum reserve.
Always check that the support surface of the pots/planters (balcony or pot-holder) is horizontal, to ensure the water evenly distributed.

Can I use a lacquered pot outdoors?

Lacquered pots can only be used outdoors if they are covered (porches, verandas, loggias, etc.) as direct exposure to the elements could damage them.

Can I put the plants in the light pots?

With the exception of the IKON series, you can put plants in the light pots. If so, they must be secured to the ground with our anchorage systems, if any.

Can I make a hole in a pot?

Yes. In some articles, on the bottom of the pot, there are also impressions that indicate where to place the drill. If the perforated pot is placed indoors, it must be placed on a saucer. For the outside, instead, simply make sure the surface underneath the pot is not damaged by the draining off of water and soil.
