From XXL to XXS: The seven different increasing volumes available for the round model make it particularly easy for keen planting pot gardeners to perfect their gardening skills through regular repotting, whilst remaining faithful to their style. Because once the plant grows out of one round pot, it is simply placed into the next size!
Depending on the plant type, repotting is suggested every 2-3 years; the diameter of the container should be at least 2-4 cm larger (for taller plants, up to 10 cm larger). For the round pots, amei provides different inserts:
The waterproof silicone insert for all sizes; the robust rubber insert with carrying handles for easy repotting for the two largest sizes. Amei planters shine with natural beauty and outstanding robustness.
They are made of a technically sophisticated composite stone fibre – a mixture of polyester resin and ground stone. Additional fibreglass stands ensure especially high stability. On the one hand, the amei planters fascinate through their high-quality mineral look, which develops a natural, grey platina on the black models after a few months. On the other hand, stone fibre is shock-resistant and frost-resistant. The planters thus can survive smaller plunges, tipping over during storms or winters out on exterior shelves.
In direct comparison to stone and clay pots, they score points thanks to their minimal material thickness with a clearly reduced weight that makes handing the planters easier. If the amei plant containers are used outside and stay in the rain unprotected, please add water drain holes on the bottom using a drill or a commercially available stone driller. Otherwise, the roots will rot due to the accumulating water in the pot.
We would like to point out that small traces on the surface, unevenness and a slight fading of the material are part of the natural, but also intentional characteristics of the stone fibre material. All amei planters are individually handmade, so that these traces are a condition of the product. However, they are easily removed with some household oil or shoe polish.
