How do I make sure my pure does not fall over?

Pure products with a raised bottom can be filled with sand for more stability. The plug that you can use is included with the pot. You can fill the pot by standing it on its head and filling it with sand using a funnel.

After having filled it, you can place the enclosed plug in your pure pot. The plug is designed in such a way that excess water can flow out. Now you do not need to drill extra holes in the bottom. How handy!

If you have lost your pure plug, we will send you a new one free of charge. Click here to contact us.

There are holes in the legs of the green basics xxl and super xxl grow tables. Why is that?

The legs of the grow tables are left open so that any excess water can drain away. This ensures that the plants you are growing will not get their feet too wet. To prevent soil from flowing with the water when it drains away, you can fill the legs with, for example, clay pebbles. Have fun growing!

Is the easy hanger actually easy to use?

The name says it all “easy” hanger. You plant the flowers/plants directly in the pot with soil and all and you hang them on the railing. And voila, you have a cozy decoration for your balcony. There is already a hole in the pot, here the excess water can drain through the overflow pipe. This means that a layer of water can always remain in the pot, but never too much.

Self-watering insert: how do I use it?

The insert is a simple watering system that gives the plants exactly the right amount of water at the right time.

The insert fits in most elho indoor pots, as well as other pots made of ceramics, for example. On this page you will find an image with an overview. Enjoying a green interior without worries, that is the dream.

It's freezing, can my pot withstand this cold weather?

The elho outdoor, green basics and pure collection can withstand winter temperatures of up to -20 degrees. But water expands when it freezes this could potentially break your pot. Make sure you have drilled holes in the bottom so that the excess water can drain away. The entire loft collection is already provided with holes.
