Aside from looking good, your planters need to provide adequate room for your plants current root base as well as additional space for those roots to grow. Typically, the planters that houseplants come in when you buy them will not be large enough for long and you will need to replant them soon after purchase.
Planters come in a wide variety of colors, materials and styles. The options you choose depend mostly on your personal taste and sense of style, although there are some considerations to bear in mind, particularly when it comes to choosing a material. For instance, plastic planters are available in many colors, are lightweight and are typically quite affordable. However, they may not be as sturdy as some of their counterparts are. On the other hand, clay pots are highly durable but may be difficult to move due to their weight and can be expensive as well.
Establish where you want to place plants in your home before buying planters as well. This will help you figure out the best type of pots and stands to buy. For instance, you might want a houseplant in your bedroom but find there is not much space for a planter. In this case, you could opt for planters with built-in hangers so that you can suspend greenery from your ceiling.
Finally, have an idea of how much you want to spend on new planters. Don’t forget that, along with purchasing plants, you will need some cash for potting soil as well. If your budget is limited, consider starting with one or two lush plants and striking planters. You can add more to your collection as time passes.
