These are longer than the Standard Pot, so there is more room for the plant to grow out. We also sell Window Box planters, which are another unique and great option for your plants. These planters not only allow more room for your plants to spread out, but these planters allow you to plant more. With a standard pot, you typically can fit only one plant inside.

What is Terracotta?

Terracotta actually means “baked earth” in Italian. This is a perfect name, as that’s basically what terracotta is. Terracotta pots frequently appear with a reddish brown hue. That’s an end result of the extreme temperatures and the iron within clay reacting to the acute warmth. These reactions produce the signature shade of terracotta pots.

Terracotta is one of the oldest varieties of pottery. Archaeologists have observed portions of terracotta which are thousands of years old. Ancient terracotta was baked by being left under the sun to harden, however as technology has improved, potters began using kilns to bake their terracotta pottery. 

The uncooked substances used to create terracotta pots are very abundant. It is clay blended with iron oxide and flux. There are many unique varieties of flux substances that may be used, providing different effects. The universal use of flux in terracotta pottery is to create a glass-like structure on the surface of the pottery. 

Are terracotta pots similar to ceramic pots?

Terracotta is a ceramic, however not all ceramics are terracotta. Ceramic refers to a hardened material that is formed from minerals and substances, which can be superheated to create a strong, hardened material. Terracotta pots use clay to form the ceramic, but there are numerous different varieties of ceramic, which includes porcelain, brick, stoneware or even highly-superior substances for missiles and vehicle armor!

Does it matter where I purchase my terracotta pots?

Yes! Though it seems to be an easy process: blend a little clay, form it, warm it up, terracotta pots can range in quality pretty significantly. In addition to this, to an untrained eye, it may be very difficult to visually decide the quality of one terracotta pot as opposed to another. All of those elements must be cautiously balanced and calculated to make certain the very best terracotta pottery is produced. It is vital that the clay has the proper iron content, that it is formed in a manner in order to accommodate the plant and withstand cracking, and it is critical that the clay is heated to the correct temperature. If it is baked incorrectly, the pot might be brittle and weak. An expert-made terracotta pot can last for generations if well cared for.
