Decorating the inside of your home with potted plants is just as important as decorating your patio, porch or patio areas.  There are so many fun pottery pieces to try to put together and many of the benefit are not only appearance but function issues.

The best place to start is to decide on the type of houseplant you want to grow and pot.  Then researching on line or talking with the customer service reps at your local nursery.  You need to know a number of things.  What kind of light, water, etc your potted plant is going to need.  How large of a decorative garden container you will need to transplant it into and many other factors.  Once you get this information on the type of potted plant that you think will meet your need you can then move on to selecting a planter.

Choosing a garden planter for a potted houseplant you just purchased from the local nursery is probably the most fun part of this process.  Because the container will be indoors you can go with all kinds of materials, color and sizes.

Terra-cotta pots are always a good choice because the clay breathes and is considered healthy for a plants root systems.  However you will need to put a waterproof saucer underneath to catch any water overflow while watering.  A glazed colorful decorative planter is always fun since there are so many colors and styles to choose from. This is the time to match your planter to your interior decorating with complimentary colors and textures.

Make sure that any container you select has a drain hole so the plants roots are not sitting in standing water. This will cause them to rot which results in one dead potted houseplant. If you can find a glazed pot without a drain hole you can drop the nursery pot into the decorative container and that planter will act like a saucer and catch the water instead. Then you won't need a saucer.

Lastly, make sure you know where to place the indoor garden planter.  That depends on how much sunlight it needs, can it handle being close to a heat register, should you place it by a window that may have a breeze coming thru it.  All of these details will help with the health your potted houseplants will have.  So, have fun using houseplants to decorate your home with.  With a bit of planning you can much success for many years.
