Aztec plant pots are a wonderful choice for beginning potters as they contain many interesting and unique characteristics. They are considered to be more ‘artistic’ than most modern potting materials. Aztec pots have a unique ‘owl-neck’ design which adds an interesting dimension to the container gardening experience. Most modern potters seem to have forgotten the charm of the Aztec culture and so they do not enjoy the attractive patterns and colors that the Aztecs loved.
Aztec potters love to work with clay and are able to create some very desirable and beautiful pots. They are usually of dark colors and their borders are often colorful, geometric or asymmetrical. The shapes used are usually symmetrical with the center being a circle or square. Many potters will use a small pot on which to grow two or three plants. This is known as the ‘workers’ pot and is normally not very large.
Aztec plant pots can also be used for stemless and flowering bulbs. These pots are available in a wide variety of colors and are often hand painted. These pots are long lasting and easy to maintain; they can resist heat, pests and are water resistant. Some of the more expensive Aztec pots will have authentic Mexican designs but in general these will be made of ceramic.
The potting bench is one of the classic pieces of Aztec pottery. It has been described as the ‘centre piece’ in the pot and many potters will add it to their workshop. Many Aztec potters will rent or sell their potting benches, so if you are interested in buying a bench, check that it is a genuine piece of Aztec pottery.
You can buy the pots that you want to use in your garden in different sizes. The pots for the largest plants can be very large and look extremely elegant. Aztec plant pots can vary in height and this is determined by how tall the plant is. Many plants grow to a certain height and if you are growing a very tall plant, you may need to buy a pot that is taller than your plant. There are smaller pots available for dwarf and other types of smaller plants. Before buying an Aztec pot, you should try them out in a terrace garden in order to see how the plant looks when it is fully grown.
Aztec pots come in a range of colours. Generally, clay pots are made in red and orange colours. These are very attractive and many people prefer these pots because they are simple to clean. When you buy a cheap pot that has not been well looked after, you may find that the dirt is hard to clean and this can make the plant look unappealing.
Aztec pots can be bought from specialist dealers who will be able to advise you on the best ones to buy. Some of the pots can be rather expensive, but there are cheaper ones available. If you choose the cheaper pots, then you should check them regularly to ensure that they are not contaminated or there is no cracking. It is very important that the potting bench that you use for your plants is sturdy and will support the weight of the plant. You should avoid using plastic pots as the soil can easily break through and you risk damaging your plants. Aztec pots are a great choice and you can see why once you start to grow plants in them.
