Choosing the Right Planters for Your Home
Vines are exciting plants. They may seem fragile, but they can become destructive. For vines, you want durable planters as vines live forever. We know vines for growing their roots through crack and crevices.
You do not want a porous pot for your vines. The tendrils and roots will drill through the porous surface, tearing the planter apart. You also do not want flimsy plastic pots, and they will not hold up to the vine’s life.
The best option for vines would be fiberglass planters. The fiberglass makes the planter durable and strong. Fiberglass planters are also weather resistant. You can use them for both indoor and outdoor purposes. We have found that look very attractive in our Tarragona Bowl Planter.
