WHAT IS AN INFINITY POT An Infinity Pot is a unique indoor botanical tek that is an alternative to the classic Forsythe Pot. The primary purpose of the Infinity Pot is to increase the success rate of cuttings and seedlings. An Infinity Pot is made up of a large 27cm Terracotta pot filled with Perlite. Sitting level inside is a smaller 11cm Terracotta pot with it's drainage hole sealed. The smaller pot is filled with fresh water which gentle seeps through the porous Terracotta at a slow controlled rate directly into the root zone wall of where the cuttings or seedlings are sitting. Plants that are somewhat difficult to root will have a better chance and losing your precious cuttings due to rot will now be a thing of the past. The major benefit of an Infinity Pot is that the plant is often able to make the transition to the garden much quicker and with an advanced root system in A+ condition. HOW TO MAKE AN INFINITY POT Below is a full 8-step instructional guide on how to make an Infinity Pot. BEFORE YOU START This is an indoors only tek. For best results, be sure to start this project with fresh Perlite and new Terracotta pots. Reused items can be a source of contamination and disease. WHAT YOU WILL NEED - 1 x Large 27cm Terracotta Pot - 1 x Small 11cm Terracotta Pot - 1 x Bag of Perlite - Silicone Glue - Caulking Gun - Tape - Scissors STEP 1 Tape up the drainage holes. STEP 2 Use silicone glue to plug the drainage hole on the smaller 11cm Terracotta Pot. Allow up to 24hrs drying time to create a water-tight seal. STEP 3 Half-fill the larger Terracotta pot with Perlite. For Cuttings: Skip to STEP 6 STEP 4 If using seedlings in Jiffy-7 Peat Pellets, first check their height in the pot. Add more Perlite or remove some to achieve optimal height. STEP 5 Continue planting out all the seedlings in Jiffy-7 Peat Pellets paying close attention to optimal spacing. STEP 6 Fill the remainder of the Infinity Pot with Perlite. For Cuttings: Use rooting hormone and gently push the cuttings directly into the Perlite. STEP 7 Fill the smaller 11cm Terracotta Pot with fresh water. STEP 8 Your project is now complete. Be sure to check on the Infinity Pot every 3-4 days and refill the water reservoir when necessary.
