About
Cassia is a sweet little funnel shaped pot, wider at the top than at the bottom and is a perfect starter pot for an orchid.

Orchids thrive in most soil but you never want them to be sitting in water. The carefully placed holes all around our orchid pots allow the air to reach the roots. It is thrilling when you see healthy lime green roots peeking through the holes!

Pair with our Scout Orchid Pot for a big + little combination.

Details
If you love the earthy quality of terracotta then our signature “Soft-as-Silk” pots will make you very happy. The rich surface of these pots is smooth to the touch, with a subtle but beautiful patina.

We use a labor-intensive process to achieve this unique surface. We apply a double layer of terracotta wash onto each handmade pot, and then burnish every piece with our hands. This flattens all the clay particles and creates the softest raw-clay surface possible. Finally we fire the pots in an electric kiln to 1960 degrees Fahrenheit.

Our Soft-as-Silk pots are less porous than regular terracotta pots due to the seal created by the clay wash. This means don’t have to water quite as often as with most raw terracotta. Don’t forget to add a saucer for each pot to your order to catch water.
