Powder coated, twisted steel wire crafted to industry standards and finished with a molded coconut fiber lining creates a stunning, most efficient, ready to use addition to our back patio. This particular plant stand with basket features three wire legs bent to form the steadying feet. The basket itself is formed via more of the bent wire drawn together to form the basket which is topped with a metal band. Powder coating provides attractive appearance coupled with durability for long lasting wear.
Cobra Co® Canterbury Plant Basket is a handsome piece. Because there is no plastic liner; this planter cannot be used indoors without adding plastic lining. On the other hand, drainage is key so that the filled basket does not fill with water leaving plants soaking in water until root rot sets in. The only plants I have that can tolerate living in water per se are those of the Syngonium/Philodendron group.
My indoor or so called house plants are kept in plastic pots set in cache pots during winter months. I water and the water runs through the soil mixture and out of the container into the cache pot.
Come spring and I begin moving most of the plants out of doors where they are placed in baskets on porch or patio. My Cobra Co® Canterbury Plant Basket is used primarily for providing home for flowering annuals and not for housing my perennial houseplants.
My various container plants do like plenty of water, especially during the hot weather of summer, however none do well in standing water.
Baskets lined in fiber sans a plastic line allow natural drainage to occur. This particular basket with coconut fiber liner does not retain water as does a plastic lined, or plastic pot; I add water daily during hot summer days.
Note: when watering container plantings whether houseplants in containers with cache pots, patio or hanging baskets or barrel type containers; water should be applied copiously, as often as needed and with much draining through the drain hole(s) to allow flushing salts from planting mixture. A good irrigation or watering rule of thumb is to lift the pot or basket. If the container does not feel heavy; it is likely dry. Water copiously. If it feels heavy; leave it a day or so.
During hot summer days I water daily, and spray the foliage. Watering profusely while allowing water to flow freely over, around and through the planting mixture will not result in overwatering. Water allowed to surge through planting mixture promotes growth, hydrates and purifies the potting soil adding to the heartiness and strength of the cultivar.
Husband and I enjoy sitting on the porch or patio visiting, sipping tea surrounded by blossoms and greenery.
As fall approaches, at the end of the growing season I remove the plant material from the basket and add it and the planting mixture to the compost heap. Then I run water through the fiber liner, if it is damaged, aged or otherwise no longer usable I add it to the compost heap and purchase another to use the following spring.
Happy to recommend Cobra Co® Canterbury Plant Basket with coconut fiber liner.
