If you have any type of a window garden, or a plant or two you would like to show off but do not have the proper area for showing off, then perhaps you might consider looking into the use of a bamboo pot. Bamboo pots are perfect for showing off those blooms and vegetables that you have put in a pot, but do not have enough room to grow them in an outdoor garden. The bamboo pots for plants will allow you to grow any type of plant in a container garden, and are quite beautiful as well. These beautiful pots can be used for pot gardening, window box gardening, hanging baskets, hanging planters, window boxes, hanging planters, etc… The list goes on.
Bamboo pots are usually made from either wood or metal. A good way to tell if the pot is of good quality or not, is to simply ask yourself a few questions about it. Is the pot dishwasher safe? What about the soil spillage? If the pots have an opening at the bottom which allows soil to flow out easily, it is probably a good choice for showing off your lovely plants, however, if there is no way to pour out the soil, it is not going to look right when you put the plants inside.
A good type of pot, that I would recommend, is the owl pot. These pots have a lid that is a very close replica of an outdoor flower pot, however, the opening at the bottom allows for good soil spillage. These pots also tend to have a very good holding power, and a deep hole. The owls often have a sharp hook to grab onto the branches or even grab the stem of the flowerpot. The owl pot is perfect for showing off your plants or even for carrying away the dirt when cleaning the backyard.
If you are looking for something a little bit bigger, then, you might want to consider the flowerpot or the two and one half inch square bamboo container. These types of containers can actually house two plant families instead of just one. You can make this container very attractive by placing some beautiful rocks or stones on the bottom and arrange some ornaments in the form of ferns or bamboo. This will certainly make your garden look a lot more appealing.
When choosing bamboo pots for plants, you need to decide on the type of potting bench you want to use. There are several types of these benches. There is the regular or potting bench that is made of iron or stainless steel. These can easily support two to three plant families. There is also the pergola potting bench, which is like the normal ones, but has a center post with four brackets around it holding up the weight of the pot. It also has a handle for easier carrying.
Then there is the gazebo potting bench, which is quite stylish when compared to the regular potting bench. This type of bamboo container supports only two to three plants, depending on the size. You will find these pots very attractive if you place some cut flowers or even a bamboo statue in them. There is also a garden carton type of bamboo pot supporting up to seven plants. The pot is about the same size as the regular ones, but it has a special hole at its top part.
Then there is the bamboo cylinder pot, which is one of the most elegant looking pot in the market. This particular type of potting bench is supported by two or three individual strands of bamboo. Therefore, it will certainly support three plants. The container has a single support rod that is placed on both sides of the stem.
Furthermore, there are also the plant containers which are designed with slots and holes at the top. These pots will support only a few plants. If you are planning to have more than a few plants in the container, then this type of potting bench will not work for you. As with the other types of bamboo pots for plants, you may choose between metal and plastic pots.
