Ceramic pots or plastic?

Each of the indoor plant lovers would probably like to know about the quality of the material of the pots, can this have any significance? In which pots the belly is longer for indoor plants, or which flowerpot is better - ceramic, plastic.

The advantages of ceramic pots.

Everyone knows that ceramics is clay, which means naturalness.

What happens in the process in relation to the plant? Air with water in such a pot moves along the walls, which promotes the growth of plant roots. A clay pot picks up moisture in the soil - this is a good option for plants that like abundant watering and prefer dry soil.

Thus, flowers in ceramic vases require more water, and vice versa in plastic ones.

Ceramic flower pots have a luxurious look.

The disadvantage of this material is fragility, and so it is good in use.

Therefore, before finding a pot, you need to think about reliability and be prepared that the pot can accidentally break.

You can also buy ceramic pots on our website, and choose the desired shade and size.

Unlike other pot materials, a ceramic pot may not be on sale everywhere, and its cost is more expensive than plastic.

Advantages of pots made of plastic material.

Plastic plant pots are flexible and practical. They have a wide variety of styles and shapes, and are cheaper in cost compared to ceramic pots.

They are considered versatility, since they are quite easy to use, and are mostly already on sale complete with a plant.

Comparison of thickness and weight of plastic and ceramic.

Still, both materials have a noticeable difference in weight and thickness, but this can be good or bad. A lot depends on the preference of the grower and depending on which side you look at.

For example, a clay pot, due to its weight, is unlikely to tip over, unlike plastic. And the lightness of the pot, on the contrary, makes it easy to move the plant. The reason is the thickness of the walls.

Throughout the year, indoor plants can be transferred at any time, because the ceramic material of the pot allows you to isolate the roots of the flower and gives protection from any temperature.

Plastic pots do not have as much insulation, temperature plays a role in them, or they do not protect plants outdoors in cold weather at all. Summer, of course, is not a problem for plastic.

Tips for using both pot materials:

Before choosing the pot material you want, you need to make sure there is a drain hole in the pots.

If the soil becomes flooded with water, then there is a possibility of root rot, therefore, if the flowerpot has a stand for collecting excess water, be sure to pour the liquid from the pan after watering. It is a good idea to place a drain on the bottom of the pot to even out the water level.

The flowerpot is the correct size.

For some plant species, it is important that the diameter is equal to ⅓ the height of the plant from the soil itself to the top of the foliage. When the plant grows, trim it to maintain the size of the pot, or transplant it into a larger pot if necessary.

There are indoor plants with deeper roots, a deep pot (container) will be preferred.

Slow growing indoor plants with small roots need shallow pots.

The choice of a flower pot depends on the preferences of the gardener, as well as the individual approach to the type of plant. Nowadays, flower pots have found a trend in style and it is imperative that the pot is selected for the interior of a house, cafe, terrace and other premises.

The flowerpot is an idea for a gift to the owners of indoor flowers.
