Adding a plant to your home or office signals that you are ready to keep something alive. Sure, it’s not a pet or a child, but plants take commitment and dedication. The first step to keeping your plant alive is giving it a new home. For that, we recommend a ceramic plant pot.
Having a plant indoors comes with several benefits. Plants are shown to boost mood, sharpen focus and improve air quality, including removing toxins from the air and increasing humidity levels. Some studies have even shown there may be a positive correlation between plants in a room and a patient’s speed of recovery. On the aesthetic side, plants can help add color to an otherwise plain room and even provide privacy when placed next to windows. What you put your plant in is also important.
We like using ceramic pot plants because they provide a sturdy and cool house for plants to live and grow. Most ceramic pots provide drainage for easy watering and are strong enough to handle all the soil your plant needs to thrive.
Depending on your design preferences and decor, ceramic pot plants can seamlessly blend into the background or they can add a much-needed pop of color to your aesthetic. Plus, if your plant does die, at least your ceramic pot will look nice.
Check out some of our favorite ceramic pot plants below and get ready to flex your green thumb.
1. Rivet Mid-Century Ceramic Planter
Lift your plants off the floor with the Rivet Mid-Century Ceramic Planter. The planter and stand combo are available in four sizes for the stoneware pot, including small, medium, large and wide. Each pot comes with a corresponding three-legged iron stand that lifts the planter off the floor. Customers can choose from seven modern and traditional color schemes. The pot can easily be cleaned with soap and water and provides a durable and attractive space to house plants and other items.
Pros: The planter and stand can be used together or separately.
Cons: The planter does not have a drainage hole.
2. Modern Ceramic Garden Flower Pots
For a trio of pots that will work in just about any room in the home, we recommend the Modern Ceramic Garden Flower Pots. The set includes a small, medium and large ceramic pot. All three white pots have a modern and clean ribbed design and are between 3.2 inches and 5.3 inches tall. The pots can be placed together to provide different levels to the decor or used in separate locations. Each pot has a small drainage hole at the bottom.
Pros: The lightweight pots are easy to move even after they’ve been filled with soil.
Cons: The saucers are attached to the pots and the small drainage hole and rim make it time-consuming to water the plants from the bottom.
3. POTEY Ceramic Plant Pot
Add some color to your decor with a POTEY Ceramic Plant Pot. The durable earthenware pot is available in seven attractive solid colors, including matte coral, shiny pink and shiny turquoise (shown here). Measuring 5.1 inches high and 5.9 inches in diameter, the POTEY can withstand extreme heat, making it a great option for placing near a window or outside. The POTEY has a small drainage hole in the bottom and a removable saucer for easy watering and cleaning. It also includes a mesh circle to help hold the pot in place on the saucer.
Pros: The POTEY can be placed outdoors in a covered area.
Cons: Because the saucer is separate, users must be cautious when moving the pot and saucer together after a plant has already been added.
4. Exquis Home White Ceramic Flower Pot
Add a modern touch to your home or office with the Exquis Home White Ceramic Flower Pot. The two pots included in the set are designed with different shapes, dimensions and color patterns but still look great next to each other. The white, gold and silver ceramic pots are five inches and six inches high and can accommodate a variety of plants and succulents, including cacti, herbs and orchids.
Pros: Each pot comes with a drainage hole and a removable plug.
Cons: Users may have to add additional coverage when using the plug to stop water from draining.
