Well-constructed and resistant to leaking pots



One of the primary concerns with having plants indoors is ensuring that soil and water do not leak from the indoor plant pots and onto the floor. When searching for pots for indoor plants, therefore, you should be careful to choose pots that are well-constructed and resistant to leaking. Many indoor pots are designed with a catch plate or basin at the base of the pot to catch any water or soil that escapes the pot itself. This will keep your floors clean and dry while still allowing for the correct amount of water for the plants.


The size of the indoor plant pots will vary according to a few factors, including the size of the plant you plan
on placing in the pot and the available space in the room. Measure where you intend to place the plant and the pot to ensure you get the right size. Tabletop pots will undoubtedly be much smaller than floor pots, which means the plants themselves will often vary accordingly. Hanging pots will also be a different size and shape, and you will need to think about how the pots will hang before choosing the best pots for you. Regardless of where the pots are placed, the indoor plant pots should be durable enough to support the weight of the plant and the soil inside the pot at any given time.



Style & Colours


Aesthetics are, of course, a concern when buying indoor plant pots. Try to choose a design that will fit the decor of the room in which the plants will be placed. This may mean matching the pots to the existing furniture, or choosing a color that is complementary to the overall decor of the room. The designs of the pots can vary, as can the color of the pots, and the best design and color is largely a matter of preference. Choose a design and color that you like, but be sure it works well with the decor of the room.


Think about the materials used to make the indoor plant pots. Be sure to choose materials that will not adversely affect the soil or the roots of the plant in any way; this means avoiding materials that may leach chemicals into the soil. Avoid materials, too, that will be damaged from the moisture in the soil. Certain types of metals and some woods can begin to rot or decay due to continued exposure to moisture.

Terracotta pots are great for people who may be water worriers. If you are constantly wondering if your plant needs water or if you are always watering- terracotta may be the medium that best suits you. Unglazed terracotta pots are porous and the pot absorbs water and allows it to evaporate. I find that to be a plus for plants like cacti & succulents that are susceptible to over watering. Another feature of terracotta pots is their weight, they're good stabilizers if you summer your plants outdoors. They're least likely to fall over with a gust of wind and plants that are top heavy won't fall over easily either indoors and outdoors.
