Every home is a little brighter with some plants inside. Here are some of the best pots and planters available in Singapore.
September 30th, 2022
A planter is any container in which living plants are grown. There are many different types, shapes and sizes of planters. Each size is suited to certain types of plants. Planters can be made from a number of materials including clay, plastic, glazed ceramic, fibreglass, concrete and metal. Ceramic pots are the most common type of planters for houseplants in Singapore.
Choosing the right planter is critical to ensuring the health of your plants. Making sure that your plants thrive inside is a tricky task that involves a lot of knowledge of their watering habits, light requirements, and growth rates. Growth rate is particularly relevant when choosing an indoor planter because certain plants such as the rubber fig will require repotting after a year or so.
There are a huge variety of planters on offer around Singapore. Currently, rustic planters are seeing a boom in popularity. Reclaimed or recycled wood planters have a rustic charm that compliments the naturalness of the plants. They are particularly popular for those who design with the concepts of Feng Shui, which names wood as one of the five elements. Painted ceramic pots are also very common, particularly with cutesy faces or naturalist artistic line-art.
Planters are not just decorative. There are a number of benefits to choosing the right planter which go beyond just aesthetic value. Having houseplants in the home is proven to improve the air quality, boost moods, and can even help with productivity in a home-office setting. Gardening every day is a routine activity which can strengthen concentration and bring satisfaction into your daily actions.
Harnessing the power of plants in your home can feel a little tricky if you don’t know where to start.
