Neos is made out of PLA, which is a corn/cane sugar-based plastic.It is a fully biodegradable green alternative to our everyday plastic. It is UV-safe, and has a softening temperature of 65°C (149°F) so be careful on exposing it to temperatures beyond this point. Aside from the temperature, under normal usage inside a home, PLA will not degrade from its plastic structure so no worries, use it like you would any other pot you own.
If you see some algae growing on the pots over time, it is best to sanitize them by soaking them in a solution of 50/50 bleach to water. Due to the airy material used to enhance orchid cultivation, these pots float! So having a weight or simply a rock to hold them down would do the trick. After the soaking it is a good idea to give the pots a good rinse under tap water and let them air dry fully before use.
Alternatively if you don’t have bleach on hand, it is also possible to sanitize the pots by using some hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Simply spray the H2O2 onto the spots with algae and leave it for 15-30mins. You should see the algae turn from a green to a clear/white color. After it’s done simply rinse off the pot and allow for air dry.
