The Best Pots for Indoor Gardening

From terra cotta pots to decorative ceramic ones, there are many choices available and in various sizes.
But not only do you want to choose a pot that looks good in your home, you also want one that is the best size for your plant.

If you pick a pot that’s too small your so to be full-grown plant the roots won’t have enough room to grow and the plant will be “root bound”.
Root bound is a rectifiable condition with re-potting, but it can put the plant through unnecessary stress and creates more work for you.

The container you choose needs drainage…
And the most common method of drainage is one or more holes in the bottom of the pot to let excess water drain out.
If you’ve chosen a pot that doesn’t have holes you’ll have two options to provide drainage.
You can put your plant in a smaller pot with drainage holes and then place the smaller pot inside the larger one with no holes.
Or place an inch or two of gravel in the bottom of the container before you put in the soil.
The gravel will allow the excess water to run through the soil and into the rocks instead of staying in the soil and water-logging the plant.
