Why Choose Moka Terracotta Garden Pottery?


Pottery King offers Moka terracotta, the highly sought-after pottery that many other materials try to mimic. While similar in baking temperatures, terracotta differs quite a bit from ceramic pots. 

Baked at a higher temperature, Moka terracotta planters demonstrate increased structural durability. Terracotta uses clay and iron, whereas ceramic utilizes materials like porcelain, brick, or stoneware.

Terracotta has been around for thousands of years. “Baked earth,” the Italian meaning of terracotta, perfectly showcases what terracotta is. Ancient terracotta was created by leaving it under the sun to harden. 

The sun’s rays, or baking it in an oven, will give the terracotta its durability. It is strong enough to resist weathering, erosion and rusting even if left outside for years.


The color Moka Pottery has rich brown undertones with beautiful orange highlights. This color was actually discovered by accident in China many centuries ago when a Chinese potter baked his pots too long and fell asleep while they were still in the oven. 

The following day, he opened up the oven only to find that his pots had turned this rich shade of mocha! Over time, he perfected the art of creating this unique hue that we know today as Moka Pottery.


Where you purchase your terracotta pots matters greatly. While the process for making these pots seem simple, the quality can be drastically different. 

To the untrained eye, the simplest of details may go unnoticed; however, it can adversely affect the longevity and strength of the pot. High-quality terracotta Moka pots will be:

  • The appropriate iron content
  • Precisely formed to prevent and resist cracking
  • Heated to the right temperature
  • Baked correctly

Failure to appropriately form and bake a terracotta Moka pot would yield poor results. In short, if a pot is not well-made, it will likely be brittle and weak. On the other hand, when a pot is constructed correctly, it can last for generations.

Uses For A Moka Terracotta Garden Pot

The classic look of a Moka terracotta pottery piece makes it an excellent addition to any inside room or outside patio as it provides numerous benefits such as boosting room and office space aesthetics and reducing the need for watering your plant. 

In addition to the versatility of Moka terracotta material, its porous nature allows air and water to easily pass through the pot walls, minimizing the chance of overwatering, soil disease, and root rot. Not to mention Moka terracotta pots generally are less expensive than other types of garden pots.

Moka Terracotta pots are great for plants that prefer drier soil, such as:

  • Cacti and Succulents: Moka pots will provide a sturdy base that is able to hold the weight of these thirsty, yet strong plants. The design also allows for proper drainage which reduces chances of overwatering.
  • Ornamental Grasses such as roses and grasses such as zebra grass or fountain grass: These taller plants can use Moka Pots because they allow roots to grow vertically without constricting the plant itself. This style of pot also provides less water needed for each irrigation 

Helpful tip: as terracotta material dries quickly- individuals should water their plants a tad more when using these types of pots.
