Three tips for selecting a new indoor plant pot

There is more than just style when considering an indoor plant pot. The correct pot helps ensure a healthy, long life for your new plant. This quick guide gives three tips to selecting an effective home for your new plant. 

When selecting a pot for your plant there is more than just style to think about (but this is a very important step!). Here we suggest three things to consider when deciding on a pot for your plant.

What size pot should I choose for my indoor plant?

On each plants page we recommend the pot size for your indoor plant and suggest options to style the plant with. The plant will fit in the pot if the indicated nursery pot size is less than the diameter listed.

Do I need to repot my indoor plants?

Repotting frequency varies depending on plant variety. As a general rule, consider repotting every 1-2 years or when you notice the roots coming from the bottom of the nursery plant pot.

Do my pots need drainage holes?

Ensure that pots have drainage holes to prevent overwatering and root rot. If using decorative pots without drainage, use the plastic nursery pot with drainage.
