- Life of a Polypropylene Pot
Kruger Plastic pots are manufactured using UV stabilized Polypropylene.
Polypropylene is the most preferred material for manufacturing pots, as they possess good structural strength, heat resistance and are very durable. The pots can be used for more than 5 years in bright sunlight and heat levels. Polypropylene is not suitable for use in extremely cold conditions (less than 0°C). Pots made from Polypropylene have a low impact strength and cannot take heavy knocks and will tend to break if they are dropped.
UV Stabilised Pots.
- Kruger Terracotta coloured pots are manufactured from virgin UV stabilized Polypropylene. These pots are used in intense sunlight for several years and have not had any UV degradation. Also, the pots are relatively thick-walled & this adds substantially to the life of the pot.
- Should I use Black or Terra Cotta colour pots?
This depends on individual needs. A professional nursery grower will use black pots because they are cheaper and manufactured using reprocessed Polypropylene. Kruger Terra Cotta has its advantages, they look better and more like clay pots and are cooler compared to black pots, especially if exposed to the sun.
- Floor protection for mud stains
Use of saucers below the pots will collect drained water from pots and prevent staining of the floor. Where available, use a good quality soil-less media based on coco peat. Regularly discard the water that collects in the saucer.
