Plastic pots


Plastic pots

Plastic is one of those materials most used for the construction of pots to contain plants.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the great diffusion that plastic has had in recent years derives from two important peculiarities of this material.

We are essentially referring to the great lightness and unbreakability of plastic: this explains why the vases made with this material are very practical to move.

In the same way, an important disadvantage of plastic immediately catches the eye: we are talking about the fact that it is a poorly breathable material and this is certainly harmful especially due to the impossibility of satisfying the air circulation needs of the roots and of the land where the plant is located.

In any case, even the duration of plastic jars can be particularly limited over the years and, precisely for this reason, it is important to verify that the container made of plastic guarantees a minimum of quality and reliability.

Another negative aspect regarding the use of plastic for the construction of plant pots concerns the aesthetic profile very closely: in fact, plastic, compared to other materials such as wood or terracotta, certainly cannot boast a high level of elegance. and aesthetics.

It is also advisable to provide a smaller amount of watering for all those plants that are contained within pots made of plastic.


Vases materials

Plant pots are made using a large number of materials, even if they are mainly four elements used: they are terracotta, concrete, plastic and wood.

Each material brings with it particular advantages, as well as specific disadvantages.

Terracotta is the most traditional material, which is most popular for making vases, especially for its beauty from an aesthetic point of view.

One of the disadvantages of terracotta is represented by the fact that it is particularly heavy and, for this reason, it is often difficult to move for those who do not have the necessary strength.

Certainly terracotta is a material that must be worked with certain treatments: in the event that the vases are of poor quality, they could tend to deteriorate and flake over the years.

Cement is another material that is often used in the production of plant pots, although it must be emphasized that it actually allows you to enjoy a high level of resistance, but it proves impractical to continuous movement, since it has a considerable weight.


Succulent plant pots

The choice of the pot to use for this type of plant often represents a nice question mark for those who do not have much knowledge of gardening and botany.

First of all, it is necessary to clarify the eternal doubt that haunts the growers of succulents, that is about the decision to focus on plastic pots rather than on earthenware pots.

The earthenware pots undoubtedly represent the models with the best aesthetic and traditional impact and can be easily found in all specialized shops.

These are undoubtedly vases, those made of earthenware, which have a significantly higher price than those in plastic and which break easily in case they suffer some impact.

Among the disadvantages of this type of pots we also find a larger footprint than plastic pots, not allowing a perfect optimization of spaces; on the contrary, however, among the advantages of earthenware pots we also find the fact of allowing a better transpiration of the compost.

The plastic pots, on the other hand, are characterized by having an extremely thick, excellent resistance to shocks, excellent deformability, allowing you to operate more easily during repotting operations.


Plastic pots: sale

The sale of pots takes place, in particular, within nurseries and florists, even if in recent times the system deriving from online commerce has spread considerably.

In any case, by going to the nearest flower shop, you can choose the type of vase that allows you to more effectively satisfy the requests of the plant, also from the point of view of the dimensions necessary to contain it.

Obviously, by going to a florist or a nursery, you can count on the indications and advice of gardening experts, who will be able to solve any kind of doubt or misunderstanding about the vase you intend to buy.

However, as we said earlier, in recent years a parallel market has developed on the web, which allows you to find plant pots made with any type of material, but also saucers and other containers for plants.

Rather frequently it happens, in fact, that the vases that can be purchased on the web are much cheaper compared to those found at florists or nurseries, perhaps taking advantage of some particular offer.
