For those of us who love greenery inside our homes, plant pots are a blessing, as it allows us to keep plants inside our homes. And although clay pots are the most common, plant pots can be extremely versatile and can be made out of anything, including upcycled plastic bottles, ceramic, and even wicker. Recently, decorating homes with indoor plants has become more trendy and popular, especially in the city, where greenery can be a rare sight. People have been placing them in their balconies to create a relaxing environment, in their rooftop gardens, and inside their homes to bring nature indoors. And plant pots have a large role to play in this, as they are the container within which you keep your plants. So, in today’s blog, we will be discussing the different types of plant pots that you can keep in your home.
Upcycled Plastic Bottles
Traditionally, clay pots are the preferred type of plant pots that most people place in their homes. But recently, people have become more environmentally conscious. So they have started to make use of all the plastic bottles that have been left unused at home. Disposing of plastic bottles can be harmful to the environment, so it is better that they are upcycled. And what better way to do that than to use them as plant pots. All you have to do is to cut the bottles into the shape of a plant pot and place the plant and soil inside them. You can also paint the bottles to add an artistic touch to your home or garden setup.
Ceramic pots and vases are some of the most beautifully designed works of pottery that you will see. And many of us have been gifted beautiful ceramic vases that are barely used. Why not place plants inside them? Ceramic plant pots come in various colors and feature numerous designs, including floral and geometric designs. And they can be placed anywhere inside your home, including the living room, dining room, bedroom, and bathroom!
Wall planters are a type of plant pot that looks modern and makes use of space efficiently as well. They are generally made out of clay or plastic and can be placed by attaching screws or hooks to the wall. You can also make DIY wall planters by making use of old plastic boxes, and making holes in both sides so that you can attach ropes to them and hang the box on the wall.
Like wicker planters, wooden plant pots also provide a natural and rustic look. You also cannot place plants directly onto them, since wooden pots also cannot completely seal the soil. But it would be a great addition to your living room, especially if you have wooden furniture in your room, as they would complement the wooden furniture.
Wicker Planter Baskets
The wicker planter basket is gaining popularity, because of its natural and rustic look. But you cannot directly place plants onto them, as they cannot completely seal the soil. It is more aesthetic than functional, but it will give your home garden setup the perfect natural look. You have to carefully place your plant pot onto the wicker planter. They can be placed anywhere in your home.
Clay pots are the most traditional and popular type of plant pot. They are affordable and easy to find in most nurseries. They also come in a variety of shapes and sizes. So, no matter how big or small your plant is, they will definitely fit. Although you can place clay plant pots inside your home, it is more suitable to place them on your balcony or rooftop. You can also paint them in different colors to add an aesthetic charm to your home garden setup.
Many of us do not have the necessary space inside our homes to create a home garden setup. This is where Hanging planters come in handy. Such planters can be hung from balcony grills, and will not take up any extra space in your home. They can also be hung inside your home, attached to hooks on the wall. To make hanging planters, you have to use thick ropes, so that they can support the weight of your plant. Smaller pots and plants are more suitable for hanging planters.
