Best option for seed germination & alternative to plastic
Casa De Amor has developed natural pot by using cow dung, which is completely biodegradable. The innovation lies in the idea and achieving optimum of cow dung, used to make it sturdy and resistant to pest. Cow Pots give seedlings a better beginning. Tender, young roots easily penetrate the sides and bottoms of Cow Pots, growing freely. This allows for air pruning and formation of root buds. Secondary root development throughout the pot grow into dense, healthy root systems recognized as critical to growing healthy plants!

What is sustainability?
Looking out for future generations by making thoughtful decisions today about our resources: land, water, air. Manure is not a waste product on our farm, it’s a valuable resource that can benefit our farm and our city cousins when planted in their gardens.
Reduce & Recycle
Change starts with a single pot. Cow Pots are the natural, biodegradable alternative to plastic waste. It’s the natural choice for seed starting or transplants that results in zero waste. Our cows’ manure is first digested, providing bio gas to the farm. After providing energy value, the manure is delivered to the Cow Pots factory to be formed into pots.
Improve Soil Health
From our farm fields to your garden beds, our food system and environment depend on building healthy soils that can support a growing population.
Easy to use
1. Sow or Transplant
Fill Cow Pots with potting soil mix and plant seeds or transplant seedling.
Water and fertilize as needed. Give the pot time to harden between watering.
When seedlings are ready for planting, simply place Cow Pots into soil, and water.
Cow Pots last for months above ground but once transplanted into garden soil, the pots begin to degrade and enhance your garden soil.
BENEFITS OF COW POTS
- It is bio-degradable.
- The growth of the plant is faster in Cow Pots than other / normal pots.
- Root Penetration and Air Pruning.
- A great alternative to plastic pots, RENEWABLE and RECYCLED
- Made From Manure
- It is bio-degradable, fertile and the manufacturing process does not cause pollution.
- Water absorption rate by the pot is very slow and therefore prevents leaching of nutrients.
- The growth of the plant is faster in cow dung pot than other / normal pots.
- This can be also used for sowing costly seeds directly in the field to get maximum germination and growth of the plants / saplings.
- Employment generation through local manufacturing and sourcing of these cow dung cups.
Why use wasteful plastic pots or fiber pots when you can use Cow Pots?
The manure we use to make Cow Pots is a renewable resource, unlike peat mined from bog systems or plastic made from fossil fuels. When deciding between Cow Pots vs. peat pots, our main ingredient, manure is 100% renewable and recycled because we use it first to capture methane which we burn as biogas to heat our farm buildings. In making Cow Pots, we extract green-energy from the manufacturing process, reducing our carbon footprint. By collecting and using manure to create a truly 'green' product, Cow Pots – and your use of them – help farmers preserve clean, open spaces.
I've used peat pots, isn't this the same thing?
No, ripping or tearing harms plant roots. Unlike other starter pots, Cow Pots eliminates transplant shock because the porous pot walls eliminate the need for tearing or ripping and allow for continued root growth after planting.
