The piece is left unglazed to allow water to evaporate from the planter's porous surface, keeping plants dry and cool. Strung with all natural hemp cord and contains a drainage hole in the bottom. Replace cords as necessary and minimize overwatering/wetting cords to prevent weathering. A perfect pot for succulents, trailing vines/ivy, cacti, herbs, or any small low-water houseplant. Remove from hanging and place over a cup to water or mist daily. Each planter is one-of-a-kind. Hand wash.
