There are 2 sizes shown on each of our houseplants - the first is the diameter of the grower’s pot and the second is the total height of the plant (this is measured from the base of the grower’s pot to the top of the plant).
How to choose the correct decorative pot for your houseplant
A general rule on choosing a decorative pot is if the growers pot is under 15cm in diameter then you should choose a decorative pot that is at least 1cm bigger in diameter for example, if your plant is supplied in a 14cm diameter grower’s pot, you will need a decorative pot that is at least 15cm in diameter.
For larger grower’s pots over 16cm in diameter, you will need a decorative pot that’s a minimum of 2cm bigger in diameter, for example, if your plant is supplied in a 16cm diameter grower’s pot, you will need a decorative pot that’s at least 18cm in diameter.
On our product pages for houseplants in a growers pots you will see a visual guide to our recommended pot size for a ceramic or decorative plant pot.
Check the grower’s pot height
The height of grower’s pots can vary, but they are usually slightly smaller or the same as its diameter (for example, if the pot is 14cm in diameter, the height will generally be 14cm too).
Ensure you check your decorative pot will be tall enough to hide the grower’s pot if you are not re-potting directly into the decorative pot.
