You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.


Lippia dulcis. 3.7L coir pot.

This creeping ground cover is native to Mexico and Central America and was an important medicinal plant for the Aztec people.

It has a history of use as an expectorant for coughs and has been used to treat colds, asthma, bronchitis and colic.

The leaves are very sweet (much sweeter than Stevia and refined sugar) and they’re popular in teas, chilled drinks and salads. They contain camphor which can be harmful to the nervous system in high quantities.

The plant enjoys a full sun position and can handle various soil types with good drainage.

Ideal for containers and hanging baskets.
