Please note: I do not post my plants / products. All prices shown on this website do not include delivery. I offer a delivery service within the Perth metro area for $15 per order. You are welcome to collect your plants / products from me in Kalamunda at no charge.

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.


Platysace deflexa. 3.7L coir pot.

This native vegetable can be eaten raw, baked, fried or roasted. The tubers can be dug up and eaten year round.

Although the plant can handle nutrient-poor soil, it is best grown in fairly fertile soil, in a full sun position with a good supply of water in summer.

The plant should grow about 50cm high by 90cm wide.

It can be grown in containers but it is best suited to being grown in the ground.
