How to Plant in Large, Tall Pots and Planters

How to Plant in Large, Tall Pots and Planters

Tall pots are often the optimal choice since they have the highest air-to-water ratio for better gas exchange. Wide pots are also preferred to narrow ones.

What makes taller planters stand out?

Extend Small Areas

When creating more vertical space, use large planters with tall plants. Long planters do not make the plants appear taller, so consider this when purchasing large or tall planters.

Contemporary Atmosphere

Large planters in small room spaces can be used to create an indoor oasis. Tall planters add a touch of elegance and beauty to a room. Two identical large planters can be used to create a modern look.

They are simple to arrange

These planters are lightweight and portable, but they may require substantial soil. They can be moved from outside to inside and even within a room to better use available space.

How to Fill Tall Planters?

Here are methods to fill a large planter while still saving money.

Step 1: Check for Drainage Holes

Every plant owner should be aware of the hydration level of their plants; drainage holes prevent the plant root from dying by removing excess water from the soil and stopping the growth of bacteria and fungus in the plant root. An adequate drainage system is needed for plants to grow healthily.

Step 2: Prepare Filler for Pot

Using space savers at the bottom of the plant, saves you from spending so much money on soil mix. You can fill the planter in the upper half with soil mix. This is cost-effective and also makes the planter lightweight.

Lightweight Pot Fillers

Packing Materials

Filler materials like Styrofoam or Styrofoam blocks can be used. They can be packed in a bag to make them secure and contained within the planter.

Recycle Materials 

Materials like plastic cups, plastic bags, and water bottles can be used as space savers in planters. Depending on how much space you want to fill, you can crush or leave them whole. 

Short-Term Use Material

Wood chips, pine cones, cardboard, and newspapers can be used. They can degrade over time and add nutrients to the soil.

Heavy pot Fillers

These include ceramics, bricks, large rocks, or wood logs. They are mostly used in large planters for permanent installation or lightweight.

Step 3: Protect the Fillers

Soil contents can be prevented from falling through by separating the soil from the fillers using materials like newspapers or landscaping fabric.

Step 4: Prepare Soil for Potting

Pre-fertilized or high-quality potting soil should be used to fill the planter to the top. Potting soils will be perfect for indoor plants as their water drain thoroughly, giving the root a good chance to spread.

Step 5: Planting

Put the plant in and add soil if more is needed, then water as directed.
