* Care Instructions:
Mari Masot two-part plant pots are thrown from a sandy-textured, high grog stoneware that remains slightly porous after firing. This makes them perfect for plants, as the roots can breathe more easily. They’re particularly good for cactus and succulents, who like to dry out completely between waterings. If you use your two-part plant pot for more moisture-loving plants, the surface of your pot could develop a patina - which has its own very organic beauty, but is something to keep in mind.
When it's time to water the plant, carry the top part to a sink or other area where it can drain free, and let the water run out before replacing it on the base. The base of the two-part plant pot is designed to catch a few drips, but not to hold a lot of water - it could leach out. For this reason, we don't recommend using your two-part plant pot as a vase.
Cleaning the pot is most easily done when it is dry, with a soft- or medium-bristle brush.
