A collection of container plants can add interest and pizazz to any landscape, home or office. The needs for each of these places will vary so should the plants, plant mix and watering and fertilizing needs.
Some of you will want to containerize out of need. What might the needs be.
A small patio.
A splash of color
Terrible native soil.
Using just one plant makes a bold statement and attention is drawn to the decorative pot This plant in a plain terra cotta pot would disappear.
Depending on your likes they can be formal and pristine or rustic with wood and rust. If you make a collection more interest comes from differet heights and uneven numbers.
The colrs of the pots should somehow councide with each other artistically

|Most of the pots I get are from yard and estate sales. People just cannot move with them or have lost interest. These large cement bird baths are lovely to look at but WAY to deep for birds. I have started to collect them and pot them with plants,since there are no drainage holes I use water loving plants like impatience since they are bound to get soggy.|
is definitely a conversation starter.
If you plan on house plants or office plants keep in mind that the air conditioning and heat blowing on a plant can really cause a plant to decline or possibly die so have plan b placements in mind. Check also that your plants are non toxic if you have small children or pets in the house.
For good air quality one houseplant pre 100 square feet is recomended,. Especially consider this if you are in a new or remodeled home since many materials will outgas chemicals for up to 7 years
