Air pots are one of the best solutions for growing herbs, orchids, and most any other plant. Air pots are not only cost-effective, but they’re also relatively easy to use. They come in many sizes and can be found at most garden centers, like nurseries or online. In addition to being simple to use, these containers allow you to plant from seed, allowing your gardening efforts to become more extensive and rewarding. These pots will make your home a garden in miniature form.
Air pots are much easier for you to maintain than potted plants, usually water gardens, planted in potting soil. Air pots usually come with easy-to-follow instructions that include how often you should water and what kinds of light they need. Because these containers do not require a great deal of upkeep, many people opt to keep them simply as a container to provide a small amount of shade where needed or a place to provide a focal point for their yard.
When choosing an air pot, there are a few things you should consider. The first thing is the size. Air pots vary greatly in size, some as small as a plastic matchbox, which is probably too small for most potted plants. A good rule of thumb is to make sure your container holds at least twice the amount of the container’s overall size. This will ensure sufficient airflow throughout your plants and prevent the roots of your potted plants from getting too hot or too cold.
Another thing to consider is how well your container matches the style of your home. If your home has a modern, minimalist design, you should probably choose a smaller, sleeker pot. A contemporary-looking airport would be best for this sort of decor. If you have a traditional, wood-veneer-styled home, then go for larger, more heavy-duty pots so that your container will not take over your living room or dining room.
Next, you should think about the material your container is made out of. Air pots can come in a variety of materials, including terracotta, metal, and ceramic. Ceramic and metal-air pots can be painted any color, while plastic pots can only be solid colored. Plastic tends to be the cheapest and least expensive pot, but both materials are very durable and low maintenance. However, air pots made out of terracotta tend to be sturdier, harder, and more durable than most other types of pots, so if you want your container to last a long time without needing to be repaired, this might be a good choice for you.
