Which flower pot is right for you?

We all need the influence of nature in our lives, especially when we spend most of our time indoors. Luckily, no matter how large or small your home is, you can introduce that pop of greenery with a flower pot – or several! Our online store offers planters in all shapes and sizes, so you’re guaranteed to find the perfect fit for every room of your home. Discover our full range here and favourite flower pot materials below. 

5 flower pot materials we love:

1. Terracotta

Did you know ‘terracotta’ translates to ‘baked earth’ in Italian? As the name suggests, terracotta pots are fire-baked clay creations, left in their natural state. The clay is porous and allows water and air to pass through, which helps prevent plant disease and root rot. Many gardeners choose terracotta for their pots as it is readily available, affordable, attractive, and works well in both indoor and outdoor settings. The neutral warm colour of terracotta complements green foliage and colourful blooms, giving a touch of earthiness to verandahs and entrances. Our terracotta pots come in different shades depending on their material composition. For example, our Basalt planters are charcoal in colour – a lovely alternative in modern homes.

2. Wood

If you love a natural look, wooden flower pots can also be lovely in living spaces. What’s more, you can stain and paint them to enhance their appearance and prolong their lifespan. We have square wooden planters available for order online, as well as a novelty circular flower pot design for those with a modern indoor aesthetic.

3. PVC

PVC flower pots are lightweight, durable and long-lasting. They also come in a variety of exciting shapes and colours, with interesting decorative detailing for a statement appearance. The designer Capi Europe flower pots we stock are expertly crafted with natural, luxurious, classical, and modern styling. Read more about Capi Europe planters here

4. Zinc

Lightweight and rust-resistant, zinc pots are a convenient alternative to traditional metal planters, while still providing the ‘old gardening bucket’ charm. Speaking of convenience, did you know many of our zinc pots come with a handle for easy lifting and carrying? It’s true, so now you can move your plants to the sunniest spots in your home with no fuss or soil spills. Explore our colourful range of zinc buckets.

5. Glass

Another option for indoor plants, glass vases are great containers when you want to display the contents of the flower pot. For example, you may wish to layer decorative materials, expose orchid roots to light, or plant a terrarium. If you’re interested in glass container gardening, start small with plants like succulents and cacti. They make great indoor plants and look refined and elegant when grown in small glass containers, layered with pebbles and soils of different textures. You can also use glass vases to display cut flowers (as you probably already know!) –  keep yours looking fresh with our guide to cut flower care.
