Pots for Kannonchiku
It is not suprising that these unique palms are grown in very unique and exquisite pots.

They were designed specifically for Kannonchiku to reach their full potential. The very best are hand painted works of art, known as 'Nishiki style'.

Less expensive but still impressive is the Naminishiki style which features a 'wave and bird pattern' .

Another beautiful pot is the Fuchikin style plain and simple with gold feet and rim against a matte black body. The black porous glaze helps retain warmth in the winter and allows roots to breathe

Kannonchiku pots are deeper than normal pots to give the roots free reign and the bottom is a rounded shape so as not to restrict drainage. The large drainage hole is covered with a ceramic disc known as 'sana' which stops the potting medium from falling through.
Of course there are cheaper machine made pots available for everyday use. Only the finest examples of Kannonchiku should be put into the high quality pots.

At last I have found some quality pots at realistic prices. Just one design at the moment , but I hope to get more next year. They are very strong unglazed dark brown clay with incised designs and a nice gold rim and feet. With the potters seal stamp on the bottom. All are individually hand made so the sizes and designs vary slightly.
