Picking a Planter for Your Plant

Picking a Planter for Your Plant

Are you purchasing a new planter to repot your plant? Here’s how to pick the right one.

The terms “pot” and “planter” are sometimes used interchangeably, but pots are much smaller and only hold one plant, whereas planters are used for outdoor plants and come in various sizes.

Here are some things to think about when purchasing a new planter.

Do I Need to Repot?

Repotting your plant means they are getting a new plant mix; this will help them grow larger and healthier. When your plant outgrows its planter or is not growing healthily, it needs to be repotted.

Plant size

When referring to plant sizes, it often means the pot’s diameter they are growing in. It is recommended that when choosing a pot, you choose a pot that is larger than the plant’s current size.

Planter’s drainage

Planters with drainage holes should be used. Water that isn’t up to one-third of the planter size should be used to water the plant to prevent the root from rotting.


Porous planters, like terracotta, are porous and dry out quickly. They should be watered frequently, so the plant does not get stunted in growth.
