What better way to put a plant in the spotlight than to display leafy green plants and brightly colored flowers in neutral, earthy, attractive containers made of recycled newspaper?

HC’s fiber pots are made from recycled materials and are biodegradable. They improve aeration by promoting air circulation around the plant roots while discouraging plants from becoming root-bound.

Fiber pots insulate the roots and protect them during extreme temperature fluctuations. They also prevent rot by drawing excess water out (as the moisture evaporates and cools the soil).
