How to Choose the Best Ceramic Container

Ceramic plant containers are ideal for displaying a variety of tropical plants and flowers. Pottery is sensitive to extreme temperatures and susceptible to cracks and chips. 

Take your time choosing a high-quality, durable pot for outdoor locations. Knowing your requirements before you start shopping will save time, prevent frustration, and best of all, save money. Follow these tips for choosing the best ceramic planter:

  1. Decide what the planter will hold. Choose one that will accommodate the roots of the tropical plant when it reaches maturity, re-pot plant if necessary.
  1. Choose a high-quality, durable container that will be resistant to extreme temperature changes and less likely to chip or crack.
  1. Choose a style. The style you settle on will depend on the following:
    • The plant(s) that will reside in the container.
    • The location you choose for the container.
    • The design and style of your garden, landscape, or home.
  1. Select a color and/or texture that will compliment your landscape as well as the architectural style and design of your home.

Caring for Ceramic Garden Pots

Caring for planters properly will keep plants healthy and ensure the container is structurally sound.

  • If your plant grows larger than expected, re-pot if necessary. Expanding roots could become root-bound and damage the plant, or cause cracks in the planter.
  • Unlike terracotta, glazed pots are non-porous. Be aware that over-watering plants will damage the roots.
  • Watering plants in freezing temperatures can cause containers to crack if the water freezes. Be sure to allow for adequate drainage or move the planter to a location (such as the garage) that will protect the planter from freezing temperatures.
  • Handle with care. Stoneware planters are susceptible to cracks and chips.
