Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9856233A1] Stackable plant pot (10) comprises three lobe sections with bridge sections interconnecting the lobe sections to define the pot (10). Each of the lobe sections is identical in size and shape and is spaced equally about a central axis of the pot (10). Several pots (10) can be stacked with the lobe sections of each pot (10) being radially aligned with the bridge sections of the pot (10A) on top of which it is directly stacked. An engagement means is arranged on the lower portion of each lobe section and upper portion of each bridge section respectively, so as they can engage when the pots (10) are stacked. An entire stack of pots (10) can be watered by supplying water to the uppermost pot (10) and excess water passes through each pot (10) and ultimately drains into saucer (40) fitted to the lowermost pot (10A). A central hole is provided through the centre of the base of each pot (10) and enables use of a hanging device (50) which is secured to saucer (40) to hang the stack of pots (10) from a fixed point.
