An Overview On Planters

Whether you’re looking to add to your landscape, or you simply want a few plants to brighten up your living room, you’ll need to pick out the perfect planter. As you begin to shop around, you’ll notice there are just as many planter varieties as there are plant species. This guide will help you narrow down the options, so you can choose the best planter for your needs.

Start off determining what size planter you require. They come in small, medium, large and tall. Don’t forget to consider how deep the plant’s roots will grow. Of course, if you’re working with a few different types of plants, you can always buy a set like the Keter Rattan Planters, Set of 3, which comes with one planter in each size.

Check whether the flowerpot can be used indoors or outdoors. While most planters can be used inside, not all are able to withstand the harsh weather conditions they would be exposed to if left outside. The Fox & Fern Plant Pot, however, is actually made using fiberstone, so it can be indoors and outdoors. Planters made of polypropylene resin are another great choice for outdoor use, as they won’t fade in the sun or rust when wet.

Look for a drainage hole. The Greenaholics Plant Pots, Set of 2 has built-in drainage holes to keep plants from experiencing root rot. Other models have drainage holes with plugs, should you decide to use the pot with a plant that enjoys consistently moist soil. You may even come across larger planters with a grated drainage hole underneath. The grate keeps any rocks or stones from falling out of the pot, while still allowing the excess water to drain out.

Choose a planter that matches your style and home decor. The H Potter Tall Copper Planters, Set of 2 have an antique copper finish with decorative knockers on the front. They would look excellent next to a fireplace or on a front porch to welcome your guests as they enter your home.

DYWM Fun Fact

Did you know there are over 80,000 different plant species that are used for food? In addition to providing us with nourishment, plants also emit oxygen, which is why they are a nice addition to your indoor decor. Here are a few more interesting facts about plants:

  • The first aspirin was made from willow tree bark.
  • Strawberries are the only fruit that have their seeds on the outside and each strawberry has as many as 200 seeds!
  • Both cranberries and apples contain air, which is why they are able to float in water.
  • Although there are many different types of teas, they all come from the plant known as camellia sinensis.

The Planter Buying Guide

  • Not all of the planters come with drip trays.
  • Some planters are meant to be placed in a plant stand, which is sold separately. You’ll want to consider this when determining how much money you’d like to spend.
  • Keep your eye out for a satisfaction guarantee or a product warranty. If the warranty is listed as “limited,” make sure you know what is covered and what isn’t.
  • Size, the number of planters in each set and the planter’s construction material all come in to play where price is concerned. You’ll find the Greenaholics Plant Pots, Set of 2 are on the lower end of the price scale due to their basic design and small size. The Fox & Fern Plant Pot and the Keter Rattan Planters, Set of 3 sit in the middle, while the H Potter Tall Copper Planters, Set of 2 commands the highest price. This set is not only large, but unique in design, which is why it costs more than other models.
