Growing happiness

There’s a plant pot out there for every plant but sometimes it’s not so easy to choose what is best for your earthy friend. Plant pots come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and materials that have their own set of advantages. When selecting a pot, size really does matter! Going too big or too small can inhibit root growth and have your plant looking dull and stunted (a good rule of thumb is to have a container that’s about one-third as tall as the plant). Find yourself over-watering? Bought a pot that was too big? Try adding some ODLA clay pellets. Clay pebbles help you to take care of your potted plants in the best way. They can improve the drainage and soil, fill out a large pot with a small plant – or make artificial plants look more real.

Plastic Plant Pots

Beneficial to several types of plants and homes, plastic flower pots are durable and versatile. Due to the nature of the material, plastic pots retain moisture and can either absorb or reflect heat dependent on colour. Great for balconies and small space living, plastic pots & planters give you the ability to move your plant friends around with no difficulties. In our journey to create a better living, plastic pots like NYPON are created out of recycled plastic to help lower the usage of new materials and lower our environmental footprint.

How do you make house plants part of your home?

Liven up any indoor or outdoor space with planters from IKEA. With the right plant pot, you’ll bring a freshness, vibrancy and natural fragrance into your home. Add a dash of colour to your balcony or decorate your patio with flowers pots. Why not line your windowsill with succulents? Furnishing with plants and flowers is never a bad idea. Put your most prized plant on a literal pedestal with our stylish plant stands, and planters.

Most of our plants are already potted, which makes them easy to transfer into a larger decorative plant pot or a flower box. If you have a taste for fresh veggies and herbs, why not use one of our growing kits in your very own kitchen? Don’t forget the watering can! And if taking care of plants is not your strong point, we have convincing artificial plants for any part of your home.

How to plant in pots and planters

  1. The first step is to prepare the plant for planting. Remove the plastic pot from the base of the plant by pulling it off or cutting it open. Then, gently tease out the plant roots so they can branch out more easily in their new home.
  2. The second step is to prepare your soil and your pot or planter. If you’re using a large planter, place a few stones or a few pieces of broken terracotta over the drainage hole. This prevents the soil from pouring out. Pour a layer of soil along the bottom of the planter and add some compost to your soil for extra nutrition.
  3. Finally, it’s time to plant. Insert the plant into the pot and surround it with soil. Make sure to leave a gap of about 2.5 cm between the soil and the top of the pot. Water the plant immediately once the plant and soil have been added. This helps settle any pockets of air in the soil. If needed, add more compost at the top of the pot.

Do indoor plants clean the air?

Plants brighten up your home, but it takes many, many plants to purify the air you breathe. Plants do absorb gases and produce oxygen - but you would need to have up to thousands of plants indoors to create a measurable effect. In other words, you can’t rely on a houseplant to improve indoor air quality.

Plants in our homes do improve our health in other ways. Plants bring with them a fresh and rejuvenating touch. Their fragrance can be relaxing, while the very sight of flowers and plants can lift our mood.
