When you're growing plants, your sole concern naturally is their health and well-being. Getting them the right amount of water and light, planting them in good soil, and ensuring that they are kept safe from pests are all classic plant parent concerns.
But another thing that determines just how well any plant will fare is its 'housing'. What kind of pots you choose to plant them in will determine how they will eventually grow and thrive.
The most important thing about pots is that they must have good drainage capacity because water, when retained too much by soil, becomes deadly. Too much water retention can lead to waterlogging which, more often than not, results in root rot.
So, what kind of pots can you use for your plants to ensure that they get the best of all worlds - space, drainage, and decor?
• Benefits of Plastic Pots for Plants: Why We Love These Stunners
1. Great Drainage... no, really, much better than you'd think!
Plastic pots for plants are beneficial in many ways and one major area where they absolutely cannot disappoint is drainage. Their capacity for drainage remains unparalleled and at Ugaoo, we have ensured that all our plastic pots have all the drainage holes needed by every plant.
While providing brilliant drainage, plastic plant pots are also made to retain the moisture as required by plants. Unlike clay pots that absorb moisture, these pots retain and provide moisture to plant soil, ensuring that they are kept perfectly balanced as long as you follow a good watering schedule.
2. Plastic Pots are Big on Durability
When in doubt, plastic pots can easily be your go to. Why? Because no matter how you treat them - even if you drop them from a slight height - they won't let you down. With their durable material and sturdy designs, both small and big plastic pots for plants will serve as investments for all your garden design. These pots also maintain the temperature of the soil and allow plants to retain their moisture and inner environment even with temperature changes outside.
You can also make use of plastic pots for repotting different plants over time, which means that they will allow you to decorate your plants and switch up styles while still giving you flexibility in terms of indoor or outdoor decor.
3. Plastic Plant Pots are Easiest to Clean
Unlike clay pots that leave a residue after continuous use and ceramic pots that can retain stains, plastic pots are easier to clean and maintain. On an average, they do not require too much maintenance. But when they do, they are super easy to clean and can just be rinsed with water. They do not even retain stains of the soil or chemical fertilizers.
4. Easy Transport and Movement
Sometimes, plant pots need to be moved around and their positions need to be adjusted as times of the day and weathers change. When you have large garden planters made of ceramic or metal, it can be rather difficult to move them due to their weight.
But with large plastic plant pots, this is never an issue. You can easily move them as and when required, without needing additional hands. This way, you can also ensure that all your plants' daily light needs are met.
Many of our plastic pots are also made to closely resemble marble and ceramic planters while still retaining the many benefits of plastic.
5. Premium Grade and Versatile
At Ugaoo, we create and make our plastic pots with the highest quality, premium grade material which ensure their retained style and durability. This allows you to choose from a wide variety of products and gives you the guarantee that our plastic pots, or any other products, won't let you down!
We also have a very wide range of pots which allows you to choose whatever works for your decor and personal taste.
