How do you make house plants part of your home?

Liven up any indoor or outdoor space with planters from IKEA. With the right planter, 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 garden planters. Why not line your windowsill with succulents? Furnishing with flowers is never a bad idea. Put your most prized plant on a literal pedestal with our stylish plant pots 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’ve 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 or planters

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.

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.

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 has been added. This helps settle any pockets of air in the soil. If needed, add more compost at the top of the pot.

Do house 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.
