Pot Sizes & Materials Guide
At Sow Exotic, we're committed to a greener way of growing! That's why we ditched plastic nursery pots and ship almost all of our plants in plastic-free plant-based pots that arrive ready-to-plant right into the soil! Biodegradable planters are better for the environment and they support strong healthy root growth and happy, productive plants.
Plus, all of our plants are 100% naturally grown! Learn more about our natural growing materials, organic soil blends, propagation methods, and more!
