    Our collection of ceramic pottery creates timeless beauty for the interior house plant.

    Ceramic pottery includes earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain.

    Ceramic refers to a nonorganic substance, like clay, that is molded, formed, and baked in high temperatures. Different types of ceramic pottery are named based on the materials they use and the temperatures they are heated to during the baking process.

    Earthenware Ceramic

    Earthenware ceramic pottery is made with clay and heated to the lowest temperature of the three varieties. This type of ceramic is the most porous and allows for a small amount of airflow through the vessel. This is a great choice for plants as they need air in order to thrive. Because it is made of clay, however, earthenware is the most brittle type of ceramic, so it must be treated with care. In order to prevent water from soaking into the earthenware, it is often glazed on the outside. Glazing puts a hard coating on the pot that adds beauty and protects the surface.

    Stonewear Ceramic

    Stoneware is also made from clay, but it is baked at a higher temperature than earthenware. It is also important to choose the right type of clay that will handle the high heat. This produces a stronger type of ceramic and, as the name suggests, has a more stone-like quality to it. Stoneware, unlike unglazed earthenware, is waterproof and does not require glazing. Glazing is only needed for decoration.

    Porcelain Ceramic

    Porcelain is made from refined clay, mixed with different minerals, and is baked at the highest temperatures. This produces a very hard ceramic with a white, glossy coating. China produced the earliest forms of porcelain. This is why porcelain is often referred to as “fine china”.

Indoor Planters at Planter Resource NYC

Indoor planters are a great option to bring some life to your indoor space! Apartment living has many benefits, but gardening isn’t typically one of them. Indoor planters can be a great solution for working out your green thumb inside your home.

Factors to Consider for Indoor Planters

Before you begin your indoor planting, there are a few key considerations to take into account.

Proper planning before you start is key to success. You must consider the following:


Plants need light. There’s no way around it. The leaves of your plant are like little solar panels. You wouldn’t hang a solar panel in your closet and expect it to provide energy, right?  Certain plants need more light than others, however. Take into account where you would want to display your plants and then consider the availability of lighting. Natural light is ideal, but you can supplement it with artificial lights if you have to.


If you’re already interested in gardening it should come as no surprise that in addition to light, plants need water. It is essential. Water is the means through which your plants receive their nutrients. Using osmosis, the plant is able to absorb the water in the soil, carrying the nutrients throughout the plant. Without water, the nutrients cannot be absorbed and the plant will dry out and die. That doesn’t mean you can just leave the tap on over your plants. Over-watering your plants can cause just as much harm as under-watering.


Plants do, in fact, breathe. Airflow is important to encourage transpiration. Transpiration occurs when water is evaporated from the inside of the plant. This process is necessary, but if the plant is over or under-watered, the process can be inhibited. Air helps keep moisture from building up on the leaves of a plant. If water lingers on a plant for too long, it can cause the plant to rot.


Outdoor humidity isn’t easily influenced, but it is indoors. In general, the inside of your home is going to have lower humidity than outdoors. Cooling and heating systems in your home, remove the humidity from the air. With the exception of extreme climates, the air inside your home is drier than the air outside. This can be good or bad depending on the type of plants you are growing. If it is too moist, the leaves won’t dry and the soil can get waterlogged or even moldy. If the air is too dry, the water will evaporate from the soil before the plant gets a chance to absorb it. 


With indoor planters, you must be careful of your soil choice. You want to have a soil that has proper nutrients but is also loose enough for the roots to grow, the water to be absorbed, and air to pass through the plants. You must also consider the risks of pets that could grow in your soil, from bugs to fungus. For example, compost soil, though high in nutrients, can also be a breeding ground for bugs and mold. It is important, if using an indoor planter, to change your soil from time to time. 


Two of the more popular indoor planters are made from terracotta and fiberglass. Terracotta indoor planters are great for providing a classic look and a material that allows for breathability and provides temperature regulation because of its insulating properties. Terracotta does have some drawbacks, however. Because of its porous nature, it is susceptible to staining. Even though high-quality terracotta is quite durable, it can still chip and crack under stress. If these are problems that worry you, you may want to consider a fiberglass planter. Fiberglass still offers insulating properties and is more breathable than plastic or steel, but it is a bit more resilient than terracotta in addition to being lighter weight and stain-resistant.
