What type of planter is this?

willmania(6)April 17, 2012

I have a clay/terra cotta round planter that is about 18" across, 10" deep that says Hecho en Mexico Marcos pottery on the bottom & has a raised center that looks like an upside-down cone that takes up about 25% of the planter. Due to this raised area I assume it is a planter made for a specific type of plant. Does anyone know which plant or what would grow nicely in such a planter?

The 'Hencho en Mexico' is just 'made in mexico'... probably by Marco's pottery.

As for the raised center, my guess is that it's just so you don't have to put so much soil in it. Many people fill the bottom of theirs with rock, maybe this is a way to get around that?

Can you post a picture?

I don't think that is a planter. I think it is for storing garden hose.
