When it comes to choosing a large plant pot, you want one that fits your personality and home. Of course, this can be tricky—after all, how many times have you seen someone’s living room on Instagram and thought “I need those exact same curtains!” or “That is the most amazing couch I have ever seen in my life!”
Well don’t worry—we’ve got a few ideas for style options that will both match your personality and look great in any space:
Is your space indoors or out?
Is your space indoors or out?
If you have an outdoor space, you might want to consider a large planter. Large plants need room to grow, and that’s where the big pots come in—they give your plant plenty of room for its roots to grow without taking up too much space in your house. If you have an indoor space, however, it might be better to go with smaller pots (to avoid over-watering).
Where will the planters sit?
- If you’re placing them on a deck, you’ll need a larger pot.
- If you’re placing the planters indoors, go for a smaller one.
- If they will be placed outside, consider drainage.
A quick word on drainage.
A quick word on drainage. The best large pot for your plants will have holes in the bottom of it, or at least a hollow center so water can flow out. If you don’t want to put holes in your beautiful new plant pots, there are two options:
- You can buy a pot with a saucer that is designed specifically to drain excess water from the top of it (making sure not to cover up those drainage holes!)
- Or you can just use an ordinary container—but make sure it has a rim at least two inches high around the outside edge so water doesn’t spill over when you put soil in.
There are so many plant pots to choose from, and we’re here to help.
There are so many different types of plant pots to choose from, and we’re here to help you find the perfect one.
Here are some tips for finding the right one:
- Consider your space and the plants you have or plan on getting. If you have a large garden area or an outdoor porch, pot selection will be easier than if you’re working with limited space indoors. That said, even small indoor areas can accommodate certain kinds of plants (like succulents) in their own containers!
- Think about what kind of material would work best for your environment. If you know where your plant is going to live, think about what kind of materials are available in that location—concrete? Plastic? Wood? Metal? Do some research on each material’s durability and how well it holds up over time in different climates (e.g., humidity). This will help inform how much care goes into cleaning the container once it becomes dirty and whether or not any protective coatings should be applied before use (e.g., linseed oil).
So, what’s the perfect pot for your plants? We can’t tell you that. But we can help you find it! And if all else fails, there are always more options out there: there are plenty of options on our site and in stores near you.
