1. What is the main difference of the clay pot by Gracious Plant compare to those commonly found from the big hardware retail chain or nursery?
As clay are porous and permeable, we have taken the additional effort to seal all the terracotta pot to reduce the residue, efflorescence, mould from taking over the original looks of the pot.
2. How do I know that the pot is being sealed?
We have applied 2 coats of purpose mix penetrating sealer to seal all the terracotta pots to ensure your pots will last and look the same for many years ahead. It is a special mix sealer that does not change the original colour of the terracotta pot.
Note that depending on the type of fertiliser and water being used to water the plant with soil in it, residue and efflorescence might still be noticeable but that will be minor as compare to unsealed pot.
3 Why there’s crack line on the terracotta pot?
The minor hairline crack especially on the greige terracotta pot, that’s characteristic of the terracotta pot by itself and there’s nothing wrong with the pot.
4. Can the terracotta pot be left outside the house?
Due to the nature of the terracotta pot, it is advisable not to leave the pot expose to cold weather as it tend to break or crack.
5. The plant received is different from the photo?
As each and every plant is unique and live, it will continue to mature, grow, reproduce and change in colour hence we cannot guarantee that the plant you receive are exactly the same as the picture. However, we will ensure that you will receive the exact same species of plant that you had ordered.
6. The pot painting varies to the photos?
As each and every terracotta pot are unique and hand painted, hence there might be slight variation in shape and tone, will try our best to match each and every pot as close as possible.
