The type of pot is all about the beauty and health of the plant. You will better understand this relationship and find out how to choose the ideal vase model in the topics below, after all it is no use buying a vase just because it is beautiful. There are other important factors that should be analyzed as well. Check out:
How To Choose The Best Vase For Your Plant
Size and space
Each plant grows and develops in a different way. There are species of small size, just as there are species that grow a lot. Other plants have slow growth, some already grow fast and fast.
It is important to know how the plant you have chosen develops and the maximum size it can reach within the pot. Even if the seedling is small it is necessary to take into consideration that it will grow and therefore must already be placed in a vase that accommodates this size in the future.
Some plants, however, need tall pots because their roots are deeper. So check these questions before choosing the vase.
Need for water
Every plant needs water, but soggy soil rots the roots and can even kill the plant. Therefore, buy a pot that has a drainage system, that is, small holes in the base that can drain excess water from the watering.
Some materials used to make vases can retain heat and overheat the plant, especially those with dark colors. If your plant does not enjoy heat and high temperatures, a plastic pot, for example, can be very harmful.
Vases versus cachepot
There is a certain confusion between pot and cachepot, but let's clarify: the pots serve for planting, since it comes with the included drainage system and can also be decorative. The cachepots, however, are only decorative. They do not have a drainage system and are often made from materials that in contact with water and the soil spoil easily. In that case, the plant is placed in a pot suitable for it and then placed inside the cachepot to decorate the environment.
Types of plant pots
After knowing all the needs of your plant - space, temperature, watering - it is time to define the best material for the pot. Currently there are several types of vessels available, ranging from size and shape to weight, color and material. Below you can find the most common types and their main uses:
Ceramic vessels, also known as clay pots, ensure ideal temperature and humidity for the plant, something very similar to what it would be if it were planted directly on the ground. This type of vase is easy to find, has different sizes and sizes and a very affordable price. However, it ends up 'disputing' water with the plant and, therefore, it is necessary to check the need for watering more frequently. Another disadvantage of the material is that it can break and crack easily. To avoid this problem, avoid carrying and tinkering in the vessel.
Plastic vases are another very common option. They are inexpensive, sturdy, lightweight, easy to find and manufactured in varying sizes, colors and shapes. Plastics vases are usually used inside cachepots, since their look does not appeal much. The biggest disadvantage of plastic is that it tends to overheat and, as a result, damage the development of the plant.
Concrete or cement pots can be bought ready or made at home, by yourself. This type of vessel is very strong, but heavy and difficult to move. Therefore, it is recommended that it be used outdoors and on firm ground or slab. Another important tip if you plan to use this model of vase is to always opt for a larger size than the recommended one for the plant, since the internal part of it is reduced.
Stone vases are very similar to cement vases, including weight. Therefore, its use is also recommended for outdoor area.
The glass vases are delicate and elegant. Its use is indicated to house cut flowers and some types of aquatic plants used in interior decoration. To keep yourself beautiful you need to clean it frequently.
Wooden pots are more commonly used as cachepots than as potting pots. This type of vase is easy to find and can vary greatly in price, depending on the finish and the type of wood used for production.
The polyethylene vases are super high and deserve the popularity it has. They are lightweight, affordable and have numerous color, size and shape options. Polyethylene vases can be used both inside and outside the home.
The great advantage of metal vases is that they can be light and aesthetic at the same time, however the high cost can make a project unfeasible with them.
How to choose the vase according to the decoration
- The aesthetics of the vessel is as important as the plant that will be placed in it. After all, it will be an integral part of the decor and should be thinking in tandem with it.
- The size of the pot should respect the size of the plant. Regarding the format and the material you have more flexibility of choice and can choose the one that most matches the decoration.
- Ceramic, wood and stone vases are great for rustic proposals, for example. Already a glass vase looks perfect in a clean and elegant decor. The cement vessels, in turn, combine soul and heart with the industrial style.
