(Cl. 47—34) 1 2 The present invention relates to new and use a plurality of openings 01-, perforations 6 which establish communication between said pot and ful improvements in ?ower and plant containers or pots and has for its primary object to provide the chamber 4, said openings 6 being also for a device of this character comprising a novel the passage of air and water. It is thought that the‘ manner in which the construction and arrangement whereby surplus moisture may be readily drained, thus preventing the soil from souring in addition to permitting container functions will be readily apparent from a consideration of the foregoing. Excess mois ture in the pot I drains through the openings 6 free passage of oxygen to the roots of the young plants. ' - Other objects of the invention are to provide a 10 ?ower and plant container of the aforemen-v. tioned character which will be comparatively simple in construction, strong, durable, highly , into the chamber 4 where it may accumulate and from, which it may be readily poured through the openings 5. Air from the atmosphere is free to enter the chamber 4 through the open ings 5, said air then passing through the open ings 6 into the lower portion of the pot I. By e?icient and reliable in use, attractive in ap pearance and which may be manufactured at 15 ventilating and draining excess moisture from low cost. - I All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become ap parent from a study of the following speci ?cation, taken in connection with the accom panying drawing wherein like characters of ref erence designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein: the lower portion of the pot, souring of the soil is prevented and the growth of strong, vigorous plants is promoted. ' It is believed that the many advantages of a 20 ?ower and plant container constructed in ac cordance with the present invention will be read ily understood and although a preferred embodiment of the device is as illustrated and described, Figure 1 is an elevational view of a flower and it is to be understood that changes in the, details plant container constructed in accordance with 25 of construction may be resorted to which will fall the present invention. _ within the scope of the invention as claimed. Figure 2 is a top plan view of the device. What is claimed isi A flower pot comprising a downwardlyvtaper Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view, taken sub stantially on the line 3-—-3 of Figure 1. ing hollow body of inverted frusto conical form Referring now to the drawing in detail, it will 30 open at the top and having an imperforate coni be seen that the embodiment of the invention cal bottom wall, the lower outer edge of the bot which has been illustrated comprises a pot I tom wall merging with the bottom edge of the of suitable material. The pot I includes a body body, a false bottom wall of inverted frusto coni which tapers downwardly and may be of any cal form integral with and extending inwardly and downwardly from the lower portion of the desired dimensions. The body of pot I has body at a point spaced above the outer edge of formed integrally therewith a substantially coni the conical bottom wall and the lower edge of cal bottom 2. the body, the inner edge of said false'bottom Above the bottom 2, the pot I also has formed wall joining with the conical bottom wall adja integrally therein an inverted, substantially frusto-conical false bottom 3. The portions 2 cent to but below the apex of the latter so as to de?ne an annular chamber of triangular cross and 3 of the pot define an annular air chamber 4 in the lower portion of said pot.

This is shown to advantage in Figure 3 of the drawing. ture thereof with'the conical bottom to afford communication between the space within the Immediately below the false bottom 3, the pot body above the false bottom and said annular I has formed therein a plurality of circumfer entially spaced water outlet and air inlet open chamber, the body having a circumferential se ings or perforations 5, which communicate with 50 ries of openings therein directly below the junc ture of the false bottom with said body. , the chamber 4., Around the conical bottom 2 of the pot I, the false bottom>3 has formed therein WILLIAM FOWLKES.
