Right Pot For Your Indoor Plants

The right indoor plant will add colour, energy, and texture to a living space. It can be the exact item you need to turn an otherwise dull area into a gorgeous and inviting space. But, just as important as choosing the right vegetation is choosing the right plant pots. There are several things you should consider as you choose the perfect container for the plants in your Ontario home. Let’s discuss three of them.

1. Size

Size makes all the difference when choosing the right pot for your indoor plant. You want your indoor plant or flower to thrive and capture the attention of all your guests. As you look for the perfect size, learn about the type of plants that you are growing. Ideally, you want to choose a pot that is 1 to 2 inches larger than the container the pot is currently in. But, also keep in mind that you don’t want to choose a container that is too large as that could be harmful to the growth of the plant and damage its roots.

2. Drainage

When looking for plant pots for indoors, you want to choose products with adequate drainage. This allows extra water to drain out of the pot, preventing the roots from becoming too soggy and harming the plant. As you look for the perfect plant pots, look at the bottom of the pots. Ensure there is an adequately sized hole for the water drainage. If the hole is too large, you can place rocks at the bottom of the pot to prevent soil from falling out.

3. Color and Design

Whether you are growing plants for shade or those that will be the centerpiece of a brightly lit room, you don’t want a dull and boring container. Rather, you want to choose plant pots that match the current colors and styles of your home’s décor. You can find containers with a variety of colors, styles, and patterns. You can also choose planters that boast holiday designs or you can customize your own look. There are many options available and by choosing the right one, you are creating a focal point and beautiful addition to any living space.
