Choose The Best Succulent Pots With Plant Judo

Although choosing a plant pot or planter for your succulents is frequently disregarded, it’s crucial to their happiness and creating a lovely arrangement!

Get Planters In All Sizes

Determining the proper pot size for your succulents can often be challenging. We advise allowing about a half-inch between them and the pot's edge to give your succulents room to spread out and expand.

Because the roots stretch out before the succulent has a chance to catch up, too much room can stop a succulent from growing much more significantly. A 2.5-inch pot is typically a decent choice if you're setting up a two-inch succulent alone.

You should allow space around each succulent in your arrangement if you're mixing many of them, so they have room to spread out.

Planting your succulent in our properly sized pot, which should only have an inch or two of extra room around the sides at most, actually encourages it to grow.

Our Planters Have Good Drainage

Drainage is the most crucial factor when selecting the ideal pot for succulents. Your succulents risk developing root rot and other overwatering effects, such as mushy, yellow leaves if your pot doesn't have good drainage. It may perish if your succulent is left in too much water. You must provide a drain for any extra water in the pot.

At Plant Judo, we understand the significance of drainage for a healthy plant. Hence, our containers have drainage holes! Our succulent planters enable water to swiftly drain from your pot, protecting your succulents from becoming soggy.

We Have Pots For Succulents Made Of Different Materials

The material your pot is composed of is the next factor to consider. Ceramic, plastic, wood, metal, and glass are a few common pot materials. 

Which material is the finest, then? 

Your setup’s location will determine how it works.

Terracotta And Ceramic

We have ceramic and terracotta made of porous materials, so you can use them in spaces that may not get a lot of airflow. They function effectively both indoors and outside.

Plastic

Another well-liked material for pots is plastic. Plastic is frequently much lighter and less delicate than ceramic which is a significant advantage. 

The drawback is that it is less porous than porcelain or terra cotta. Compared to other types of pots, plastic pots make it considerably difficult for water to evaporate.

However, this lack of airflow shouldn’t be a problem if you use our pots with a drainage hole and utilise well-draining soil. 

Our plastic planters are incredibly versatile in colour and shape, which makes shopping for them a lot of fun.

Wood

Wood is a pretty intriguing alternative if you search for an unconventional way to grow your succulents. Compared to a usual planter, it is significantly more attractive. Because they are reasonably priced, environmentally friendly, lightweight, and appealing, wooden pots make excellent choices.

Additionally, because it keeps cool and holds water, our wood planters are beneficial for succulents that are kept in direct sunlight or other warm conditions.

Don't Neglect the Colours And Textures Of The Pots.

The fun starts now that you know which materials would be ideal for your succulent planter! 

At this stage, you have a choice between two methods for selecting a planter: choose the colour and texture of your pot based on the succulents you are using or select your succulents based on the container you want to use.

Because it may affect how much heat the pots hold, the colour of the pots is significant. Darker pots absorb more light and hold heat for longer than lighter ones. The hue you select should be determined by the local climate.

Firstly, select succulents whose natural hues will match or enhance the pot you use. Our experts will help you choose a pot with succulents that match the pot’s design in colour and shape. It contributes to the arrangement’s uniform and pleasing appearance.

Pot texture is essential as it affects how you should arrange the garden and how people view green space. 

For instance, areas with plenty of more significant, textured plants may feel smaller. It results from the plants’ overall height.

Grow healthy succulent Plant with Plant Judo

Choosing the appropriate pots for your succulents can boost their chances of success. Growing succulents is simple and rewarding. 

Adequate drainage is necessary to ensure that the soil around the succulent dries out between waterings.

Plant Judo offers a functional integrated saucer or tray because you also need to capture the 

water. Our terracotta and ceramic pots aid in the roots’ ability to breathe and the soil’s ability to dry out, two factors that the pot’s material can also influence. 

Try our plastic or resin pots to reduce weight when cultivating large succulents.

We have small pots for adorable little rosettes and medium options for larger succulents because it is recommended to choose a size that’s just a little bit larger than the nursery container your succulent comes in. 

Finally, we have pots in beautiful designs that improve the appearance of these valuable plants.

FAQ

Most owners of indoor plants overwater them, which causes root rot and eventually decay. Avoiding small amounts of water is the most excellent way to prevent that. Delay soaking them until water drips from the bottom of the pot and until the soil is arid. Don’t forget to drain the water from the saucers beneath the plants.

Typically, succulents need at least 4-6 hours sunlight each day to grow. They enjoy being in places that are sunny and bright. Lack of sunshine will cause difficulties in succulents, such as elongation or etiolation, when they extend for more light.


Generally speaking, succulents thrive in a mix of direct and indirect sunshine. They are drought-tolerant, but it doesn’t mean they can only survive in arid environments. Keep an eye on their exposure to the sun’s direct rays to prevent scorching the leaves, but keep in mind that they can’t stand the cold.
