Iittala Nappula plant pot, beige

Upgrade the pot

Designed by Matti Klenell, the curved lines and sturdy playful leg of the Nappula plant pot charm in the interior and create a setting for all houseplants, from cactuses and succulents to lush ferns and trailing ivies. The pot doesn’t feature a drainage hole, so when planting, it is a good idea to add a layer of gravel at the bottom. In addition, Iittala’s watering bottles will help you to take care of the watering.
