Plant Pot Size Guide

Plant pots come in all shapes and sizes, however finding the right size plant pot to fit your plant is simple. Just follow our easy measurement guide.

Step 1: Select your plant and note the diameter of the growing pot it is planted in, as given on the product page. Please note: plant heights are approximate and are provided for indicative purposes only. The key size in determining the maturity of a plant is the diameter of the plastic grow pot. Plant heights include the height of the grow pot and the height/length of the foliage. The height of the grow pot can vary slightly, but is usually about the same as its diameter.

Step 2: Compare the diameter of the plant's plastic grow pot to the size of the opening (or width) of your chosen decorative pot, to ensure the plant/grow pot can be inserted through the top opening

Tip: Choose a pot that has an opening diameter at least 1cm larger than the size of the plant's grow pot so you can insert the plant in the pot and remove it easily.  For larger plants (above 20cm) you can add 2-3cm without the pot looking too large for the plant.

Important:The opening diameter of the decorative pot is the size of the access hole for inserting the plant's grow pot. It is not the same as the external diameter of the pot which is the overall outer size of the pot. This is why we give both sizes in our descriptions. 

Please note all measurements are approximate and can vary slightly due to the handmade nature of our pots.
