Pots for balcony plants come in many varieties and shapes, sizes and materials. They come in all colors, and the better ones have multi-purpose parts that are designed specifically to be planted or placed at the balcony railing. They also come with drainage holes that make it easy to plant them without worry of waterlogging or standing water. Potted plants can easily be transferred from one window to another and some varieties can even handle being moved on a regular basis. Read on to learn more about the different kinds of pots for balcony plants and how you can get the best ones for your apartment garden.
One of the best pots for balcony plants are those that have a sloped hole in the middle. This will allow the plants to grow up and outwards so they won’t block your view. These pots are also often referred to as “sloping roof pots”. There is a wide array of pots available but the most popular are the ones with a single hole for the bottom of the pot and a larger hole for the top of the pot. You can also purchase pots with double holes for more than one plant.
Most people agree that potting bench pots are a necessity. Not only do they give your plants a place to sit and grow, they allow you to move the pots around on and off your balcony railing. You should also consider buying a potting bench if your plants are not tall enough to fit into the average pot. Some of these benches will have spouts that will work with any kind of pots. You can find a potting bench at most gardening stores or online.
Other pots for balconies are those that do not have a hole. Some are made from metal that has an opening at the top. Others are made from plastic and have two holes with a piece of mesh in between them. These pots work very well for apartment gardens.
The top of some pots for apartment plants come with a handle and others have a hook to attach to the side of your apartment. The handles on these pots can be twisted so they can hang from your balcony railing. Some have a locking mechanism so they cannot be pulled down by the weight of the plant.
There are some pots for plants that have a hole and can be set on the ground as traditional pots. Some of these pots have spigots that fit into the hole and allow you to water your plants without having to go to the top of your apartment. If your plants have a deep root system, you might want to purchase a root ball kit with a spigot that fits inside the hole. If your plants are only small seedlings you will probably not need this type of kit. But if you are planting for the long term you may want to invest in these pots.
Another kind of pot is called a hanging pot. These pots are like hanging baskets with a hole in the middle. You put your plants in the basket and then hang them from the balcony rail. These pots can either be made out of terracotta or other heavy and durable material. These pots can be placed on any balcony style railing, or you can simply place them on the ground on your balcony.
Having pots for plants on your balcony does have its advantages. It gives you a place where you can sit and relax. It also gives you a place where you can water your plants without climbing up a ladder. Just remember to keep the soil in the bottom of your pots moist. This helps the soil to retain moisture and prevents rotting. And finally, make sure you have enough drainage holes in the bottom of your pots for proper draining.
