Do Not Use the Flower Pots Indiscriminately

If you say "a good horse must be equipped with a good saddle", then "a good flower must be equipped with a good basin." Growing flowers is not only a matter of watering and soiling, but also the placement of a suitable flower pot for the flowers.

First of all, the most important factor must be considered when selecting flower pots - water permeability, gas permeability, which is the basic requirement for most plant growth environments, especially for plant roots. Then according to their own situation, make the final choice from the other factors such as the texture, appearance and price of the flower pot.

1.Pottery basin

The reason why the pottery basin is popular is because it has good air permeability. You can choose according to the thickness of the pottery basin. The smaller the thickness (that is, the thinner the pot), the better its breathability. Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages. If you over-pursuing the permeability of the basin, you should know that the water retention of the basin may not be very good.

2. Wall basin

The tile basin is similar in function to the pottery basin, and the better the gas permeability, the worse the water retention, but the price is cheaper. What needs to be known is that the potting soil of the tile basin always dries quickly, which can damage the roots of plants at the edge of the basin. In addition, the tile itself is fragile, requires care, and is rough in appearance.


The tub is made of trees, and it is very ecological and well-made for the flowerpots, and it is also breathable. But the disadvantage is that it causes insects and bacteria, and it is easy to spoil the roots of plants.

4. Porcelain basin

Porcelain flower pots should be the style that most flower-raising families choose, but the pots are not breathable, so if you choose a porcelain pot to raise flowers, you need to pay attention to whether there are pores in the pot bottom.

5. Plastic basin

Because of the advantages of plastic materials - lightweight, not fragile, plastic pots are also hot-selling, but good plastic sealing means poor gas permeability, so long-term use is not conducive to plant growth.

6. Bamboo charcoal particle pot

This is a very functional flower pot. The bamboo charcoal particles themselves have pores, which can ensure stable water content, and can also adjust humidity to effectively prevent root decay of plants. At the same time, bamboo charcoal can also protect the fertilizer, do not attract insects, no bacteria, it is a new kind of flowerpot material, the price is relatively high, suitable for small succulents.

7. Purple sand pot

The ornamental value of this basin is high, giving a feeling of elegance and elegance. Its water permeability is also good, but the price is not low, it can be used to cultivate more precious varieties.

8, Environmental Protection Flower Pots

As the name implies, this flowerpot uses a flowerpot of degradable material. Plant fiber is the main raw material and has good gas permeability. Compared with other flower pots, the advantage of eco-friendly flower pots is that they can absorb the sun's infrared rays during the day, so that even in the low temperature winter, plants can warm and winter in such "smart" pots!
