  • Metals

    If you’re tired of the standard pottery, consider trying out our metal options. These are great options for fancy events, although you could have them in your home if you wish. Metals are excellent choices for your plants, although make sure they still have their dirt and water necessities.

    We have two urn options available, the Aluminum Montigo Urn and the Gold Urn. These urns are excellent and unique possibilities for your plant decorating. It’s best to keep plants that grow upwards in these urns, that way they grow happy and healthy.

    Other metal options we have are the Milan Vase and the Dorado Bowl. These are also stunning pieces for your plant to reside in. The bowl is a great option for your centerpiece or on your side table. The vase is another great consideration, especially for plants that are growing straight upwards. Our features come in a variety of dimensions, check them out as you consider the options and call us if you have any questions.

  • Glassware

    Displaying your plants in beautiful glassware is an excellent way to grow them and enjoy their beauty. Plants of all sizes can be put in glass as long as you follow a few simple rules. The glass us use can be anywhere from a small shot glass to a large terrarium.

    Glassware for Plants comes in all shapes and sizes. These include glass drinking glasses, hanging capsules, bowls, geometric terrariums, globes of various sizes, glass and wood jars, glass and metal lanterns, hanging glass birdhouses, decanters, votives, and so much more. You really just need to see what is in stock to find the perfect container for your plants.

    If you do not have much room in your living space, or if you simply want to add some beauty to a room, a glass terrarium can enable you to keep a garden in a confined space. The plants will stay in the container and will let you have an indoor garden.

    Advantages of Using Glassware Containers

    With the right kind of glass you may find there are several advantages when growing your plants. For one, you will be the one who will choose what kind of background materials will go into the glass, as well as the type of plant, or plants that you put in the glassware.

    Other advantages include the possibility of growing plants that might not survive in other types of environments, such as one with dry air. If light is an issue, add a small light next to it. This will enable you to place it anywhere in your home or office.

    If the container is covered, you will not need to add water as often as an open container. This is because the water in the container simply circulates, although you will most likely need to add some each month.

    Benefits of having Plants in your Home or Office

    When you have indoor plants, they are also known to be able to help to lower blood pressure and reduce stress. They may also help to increase energy levels and will help clean the air.

Types of Planters

Wooden Plants
Wooden planters are very affordable. They are available in a range of shapes and sizes. Wooden seedlings have excellent drainage. They are, though, strong and have the potential to rot.

You can get wood planters ready for planting by using treatments such as chemical sealers, water-based preservatives, or linseed oil. Once you’ve researched the benefits of each treatment type, you’ll need to consider the longevity of your wood planter. Think about things like elevating your planter boxes on pot feet or small blocks of scrap wood if they will be sitting on a wooden deck or patio surface. This will prevent trapped moisture from affecting the underlying surface, and also create space for the containers to drain.

Ceramic Planters
Ceramic planters are offered in a wide range of styles, colors and sizes. They have better drainage than clay. They look pretty and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor decoration. They may be more expensive and heavier compared to other planter types, with poor drainage. Ask us about the best way to maintain your ceramic planter!

Terracotta
Terracotta planters are beautiful, but also delicate. You need to be gentle when using terracotta pots, especially when moving them to different locations or handling them in the cold.

They may require more frequent watering than other non-porous pots, as terracotta pots are made of baked clay. This makes it super easy for water to pass through a pot that helps prevent root rot, but often means that you need to water your plant more.

Our golden rule of thumb when using terracotta pots is to soak your pot prior to use it! Fill up a sink and soak them overnight or at least for 30 minutes prior to potting.

Glass Planters
Bring the outdoors in with our selection of glassware planters. Create a contemporary display of greenery with an array of terrariums, plant pots, planters and containers – ideal for cacti, succulents, ferns and moss.

Metal Plants
Metal planters look good and are available for a very cheap price. They have low ventilation, though, so they can overheat plants as well.
