At The Plant Man, we specialise in designing, installing and maintaining indoor plants to enhance your office environment, making it a joy to come to work.

Part of the exciting process of choosing your display involves selecting the perfect indoor plant pots to show them off to their best advantage and ensure they have the right environment to thrive in. Read on to find out more about how we match your precious plant with its perfect pot or container.

Size matters

While they will inevitably need a new pot just after purchase, we also consider whether your plant is fast- or slow-growing and how often it will need repotting in the future.

Proportions are important too. There’s no point overwhelming a small plant in a huge container, so we take care to match your plant to its new home, taking aesthetics into consideration too.

Drainage and porousness

Adequate drainage is essential if your indoor plant is to avoid root rot. If its grow pot doesn’t have a drainage hole built in, rocks can be added at the bottom to create space for excess water to filter away. Porous pots made from materials such as terracotta, wood or earthenware are not recommended for office indoor areas as the water seepage can cause slip hazards. Pots should be water tight with enough room for the plant’s grow pot to sit comfortably inside.

The final word: good looks

Dramatic indoor plants such as Sansevieria look extra-striking in large cement-coloured pots. Or you can opt for a minimalist look with black or white planters. Smaller, trailing plants such as ivy varieties can be accommodated in a hanging display that really brings the outside in!
