How to use Pot Trays
Are you wondering how to use your Slugg® pot trays? Look no further! Here's our guide on how to pot up your plants using your pot trays!
Slugg pot trays are sold as a set of three - one for each of your Sluggs®. They are made of high-quality polypropylene and are suitable for indoors and outside.
Pot trays are to be used inside your Slugg® pots, not underneath; this allows excess water to drain from your plants without affecting the look and the design of your sleek Slugg® pots. Pot trays should not hold excessive amounts of water, as this will cause root rot.
Slugg's 3-Step Guide:
Step 1: Insert Trays
Place each of your trays inside the base of your Slugg® pots. There are three sizes, small, medium and large, and they each correlate with the matching size Slugg pot, e.g. the largest tray with the largest Slugg® pot.
Step 2: Add Plants
Step 3: Finishing Touch
Add some coconut fibre around the top of your plant's soil to add that photoshoot-ready finish to your potted plants. Coconut fibre is also easy to spread without the mess and has a lovely aesthetic to pair with any plant and pot in your home.

Like everything in your garden and home, maintenance and cleaning is required. To ensure you don't get a build-up of excess water or mould in the bottom of your tray, regularly remove your tray from the pot, wash and wipe clean. Once cleaned, you can place it back under your plant again without fuss. Keeping your trays clean allows your plants to stay happy and healthy and is more likely to avoid mould, root rot and unwanted pests.
