Pots and planters are made of many materials; some of the most popular ones are as follows;

  • Ceramic:
  • If you are looking for something strong and durable, in beautiful colors— then ceramic pots are a great option. Make sure to be aware that ceramic pots can be a bit expensive and not the most ideal if you live in a place where temperatures drop to low.

    Difference

    Not all of us know so it is very important to understand some basic knowledge about planters and pots will help you find the best fit for your plants. Although there is not a lot of difference when it comes to a pot and planter one of the most common ones is that a  planter is used to contain multiple plants and a great fit for outdoors as it is bigger in size and diameter than a regular pot. However, a pot is best for putting plants indoors. 

    If you need to pot multiple plants then planters are a great solution, while placing single plant pots work very well and are easy to move them around. 


    Drainage

    Most planters and pots come with a large or small hole in the bottom to ensure proper water drainage. This is really important especially when dealing with real plants, so although it is not a must for artificial plants this helps mimic a real plant with a lot of finesse. 


    Repotting 

    Most artificial plants come in ugly looking planters or pots. So it is always recommended to repot them into something elegant and fancy to match your decor scene. Although there are a lot of options out there and online stores to choose from so be creative to find something that will fit perfectly. 


    If you have faux plants with large foliage or they are tall with vibrant flowers then pair them with ceramic pots as they are easy to move and look very creative both indoors and outdoors. 


    Size

    This is one of the most critical elements when it comes to complimenting your artificial plants whether they are placed indoors or outdoors as this makes a bold statement by bringing it all together like a fashion statement. When choosing a pot, choose something that is not too big yet perfectly fits your big plant well.
