What types of Plastic Plant Pots are there and what determines a good product?

Plastic Plant Pots are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most common types include: Round, Square, Rectangular (Flat), Oval & Triangle. Plastic plant pots come with or without holes for drainage.

The first thing to consider is what you want the Plastic Plant Pots for. Are they just going on a window sill or are they being used outside? If they’re going in an area that gets direct sunlight, then it’s important to choose one with UV protection so your plants don’t get scorched and die. You also need to think about how much water will be inside of them at any given time. A good rule of thumb is if there is more than two inches worth of soil and plant matter, then you should probably go with something bigger than six-inches deep because smaller pots can dry out quickly when not watered regularly (which leads us into our next point). Finally, we recommend looking for ones made from recycled materials like plastic bottles since these are better for the environment.
