Plastic Pots

Did you know that plastic pots are a great option good to grow plants? So, whether you are looking for round-shaped or square-shaped plastic pots, Groindoor.com has it all! Here, we have a wide range of plastic pots in sizes from under a gallon all the way to 25 gallons.  

Are plastic pots still used for growing plants? 

It has been a while since the thought that plastic pots don't work well for plants has been prevailing. Since air pots and fabric pots have been introduced, people have started believing that plastic garden pots no longer work. 

However, the truth is far from it. Plastic garden pots are actually a pretty nice way to start growing plants. Not only are they easy to use, but they are also incredibly cheap and easy to clean.  

Things to know when growing with plastic pots  

Like every double-edged sword, certain things need to be considered when growing plants in plastic pots.  

Plants that are grown in plastic pots usually become root-bound because of the aeration in the root zone, which is minimal. This is because plastic is impermeable, which causes air only partially to pass through. The other thing that you need to keep an eye out for is growing plants in a small plastic pot. A small-sized plastic pot will cause the plant roots to circle back across themselves as long as they grow. This results in the roots being tangled.  

As the roots become tangled, several other problems arise, most prominently, the inaccessibility of nutrients. Therefore, if you do intend to grow your plant in a small-sized plastic pot, you must transplant your plant once its roots start growing out of the holes at the bottom.   

Or, you can always grow your plants in large pots instead and skip the transplanting part. But remember, there are certain things that you will need to be careful about here as well. You will have to be careful about feeding and watering your plant in the beginning. It will be tricky to give your plant "just the right amount" since the pot will be larger than the plant.  

Picking the best plastic pot for your plants  

Picking the plastic pot's size is up to you, and the plant's size depends on the size of your plastic pot. If you use large pots, your plants will be bigger. Similarly, you will grow small plants if you use small pots.  

Since there is a whole lot of variety of plastic pots to grow your plants in, it indeed gets overwhelming to choose. From sizes to shapes to colors, Groindoor.com also has a huge range of plastic pots. So how do you decide which pot to go with? 

The best way to use plastic pots is by sowing the seeds or clones in a small container, preferably a 1-gallon plastic pot. Once the plant hardens off and grows a few sets of true leaves, you should transplant it to a medium-sized container, preferably a 3-5 gallon plastic pot. 

This is where you decide the final size of your plant. If you want to grow huge trees, you will have to transplant your plant at least once into a 10-15 gallon pot.  

Whatever kind of plant you grow is totally up to you!
