It’s a simple process to plant your Down Under Pot.. start the normal way .. with the pot full of soil and plant at the top. Allow the pot to remain in this normal position until you are satisfied that the plant is established – the roots anchored – then invert the Down Under Pot and hand it using the wire which is already fitted to the pot for that purpose.

Whenever you relocate a plant, you will notice that it wilts a little – it needs time to re establish its root system in the new Down Under Pot. When you see that the plant is established in the Down Under Pot invert and hang it using the fitted wire- establishment time does depend on the individual plant and the time factor varies with the type of plant and season, but generally, give the plan a minimum of two weeks or so in the normal position before inverting and handing the Down Under Pot.

When the pot is in the initial established position, sit it in a shallow container to keep the potting mix moist whilst the plant establishes. Once the Down Under Pot has been inverted and is hanging in position, water and fertilise through the top of the pot. There is a deep rim at the base of the Down Under Pot which anchors the root system whilst the plant is establishing, and which holds water when the Down Under Pot is inverted and watered through the top.

If the plan becomes root bound, prune it back after flowering, remove some of the old potting mix from under the handing wire, and will discover that have reasonable access for root pruning. Prune the roots through the top of the post, and then replace the old potting mix with a new lot and the Down Under Pot back in position. Order Now

The plan has established its root system and is now growing in the potting mix, in the Down Under Pot. It is the design of the pot and the established root system of the plant that keep both the plant and potting mix from falling out when the Down Under Pot is inverted and hung in position.Order Now.

One of the design features of the Down Under Pot is an internal reservoir at the base of the pot. The reservoir catches water where the root system is developing, thus feeding the plant and providing the root system with a wall upon which to anchor. If the plan is watered moderately, and is required depending in the weather, the pot will not drip when watered. Order Now.
