Material of the Making
We advise you to avoid all kinds of plastic pots and planters. Instead, prefer planters made of natural materials like ceramic— which will help your Bird of Paradise or Monstera Deliciosa with good airflow and water absorption, or terra cotta— which will dutifully prevent soil disease and root rot. You can also consider wood, rattan or woven as quality materials while picking out planters.
The right material is just a thoughtful touch to your making and collection.

Size That Speaks: How to Select the Size of Your Planter?
Choosing the right planter for your indoor plants is essential for their growth and overall health.
While opting for large planters or compact mini planters for small spaces, make sure that you select planters in accordance with the suitability of the specific pot sizes.
It is no secret that when it comes to plants certain plants thrive in smaller pots while large planters are ideal for most indoor plants. Here are a few plants that do well in small pots:

Thinking About Drainage
When selecting a planter, ensure it has drainage holes at the bottom, this will help you maintain proper health of the plant and avoid root rot.
How? These holes in the planter will allow excess water to escape, preventing the roots from sitting in standing water, which can lead to root rot. So let your plants breathe. Materials like cotton are not only an optimal choice but also are decorative (My personal favourite is the Eco friendly Black and White cotton planter basket, it has a double inner lining)
