Here’s the Dalton in all its concrete glory. This is the second smallest round one, at 10cm.
These unlined concrete pots have no waterproof sealant. They are naturally porous, so absorb water out of the soil and then let it evaporate - great for plants that like to dry out between waterings.
For this reason they give even better moisture control, perfect for plants that hate waterlogged soil (and/or enthusiastic water-ers).
A note on our unlined concrete pots: we advise that you don’t place these guys on surfaces that can get damaged by moisture. The saucers do have have little feet so there shouldn't be any contact, but it can get very humid under there!**
The concrete Dalton comes in four sizes:
- 8cm is a cylinder 8cm high and 8cm in diameter, the saucer is 9cm in diameter and 1.25cm high.
- 10cm is a cylinder 10cm high and 10cm in diameter, the saucer is 12cm in diameter and 1.5cm high.
- 12.5cm is a cylinder 12cm high and 12.5cm in diameter, the saucer is 14cm in diameter and 1.5cm high.
- 15cm is a cylinder 15cm high and 15cm in diameter, the saucer is 17cm in diameter and 1.75cm high.
All our sizes are approximate, (they’ll be within a few mm of the stated size), and refer to the external dimensions.
About Anther + Moss
Anther + Moss was born out of a frustration that so many plant pots just don't have proper drainage, ie. no holes!
A+M believe that buying a nice plant pot and having to drill a hole in it - or worse, putting a plastic pot inside 😱 - is not good enough.
Lack of drainage can lead to a whole host of plant problems - it’s one of the biggest reasons people struggle to keep their house plants alive. (Pots without holes are very unforgiving if you’re a little heavy-handed with the watering can one day.)
It’s for this reason that every Anther + Moss plant pot has a drainage hole and comes with a matching saucer — so you can be assured your plant’s always in a good home.
**Due to the porous nature of our unlined concrete pots, a patina will develop on the outside over time. This gives the pot an aged and natural look that’s always unique. Some people love this look, others not so much, but it ultimately provides the plant with a healthier habitat. (If you rather have a planter that does not do this, look at the lined pots in the collection.)
The patina will develop faster when you water a plant a lot. For example, if you put a moisture-loving calathea into one of our unlined concrete pots, you’ll see it change quicker vs a cactus or snake plant.
