Plants For Very Small Pots
Small pots are perfect for filling up little spaces that need brightening up. They can look cute, quirky and are great if space if a premium for you. Here are our favourite plants for very small pots. Whether you’re looking to fill a small apartment or you’ve been gifted some small pots, hopefully these should give you some ideas to get started.
Succulents are everyones favourite desk plant. They are the little plant that will sit neatly on any shelf or desk space and look great while doing so. The best thing about succulents is that they need very little from you. They can tolerate most humidity levels and they don’t need watering all that often either. These would be our first choice of plants for very small pots.
Fittonia Albivenis, also known as a nerve plant, is a great little plant that will stay relatively small. They come in lots of different colours and get their name from the nerve like patterns on their leaves. The only problem with these plants is they can be quite difficult to care for and tend to prefer higher levels of humidity. This makes them great terrarium plants, but if you want to keep one in a pot just make sure they’re getting the humidity they need.
Air Plants are the small plant to get if you’re looking for something a little bit quirky. They look strange and they don’t need soil to grow. They really don’t even need a pot but look great perched on top of one. Even though they’re air plant, it’s important that you water them regularly. You can do this by soaking them in a bowl of water for about 10 minutes approximately once a week but read your own plant and don’t be afraid to do this more or less often depending on your plant’s needs.
Our final suggestion of plants for very small pots is to use cuttings. Some great types of plants to use as cuttings include Peperomias, Hoyas, Pothos and Pileas. These are all plants that can root from cuttings meaning you can have a very small plant at the start but of course you’ll eventually have to repot them into something bigger as they grow.
