WHY  SHOULD  I USE PLASTIC NURSERY  POTS

There are different types of Nursery pots used for Nursery planting. There are; clay nursery pots, metal nursery pots, ceramic nursery pots, Plastic Nursery Pots,  wood nursery pots, etc. Gardeners prefer one type to another based on taste and functionality; the clay pots have high-temperature retention. When a clay pot is kept in a high-temperature environment; it will heat up slowly but will retain the heat for a longer time; it will take time before the heat is dissipated. For a plant that cannot survive in the heat for a long period, the clay pot is not a good option. But in seasons of long cold nights and shorter sunny days, and sufficient heat is needed, a clay pot is a good choice. But a plastic pot can be made to meet any of these heat measures because its making process is flexible compared to clay pots or any other type of pot.

In picking a Nursery pot for gardening, you have to decide whether the pot’s position will be permanent; that is, it will not be moved in the future, or it is temporary; that is, its position can be changed in the future. Not all types of pots can be conveniently moved; stone nursery pots, clay nursery pots are naturally heavy and may be difficult to move. Plastic Nursery Pots are lightweight, so they can be moved with ease. Their lightweight also makes it convenient to put them on surfaces that are not so strong, like; tables, story balconies, hang them on windows, etc. Plastic pots’ lightweight does not rule out durability; their wear and tear are strong. It does not wear out after long use. Clay pots, wood pots, ceramic pots, wear out with time. Metal pots get rusty with time; this affects the growth of the plants in them, but this does not affect plastic pots.

Plastic Nursery Pots are known to be relatively cheap compared to other types of pots. It’s the low cost of production does not reduce its strength; they are flexible to make, therefore they come in various sizes and shapes. They have the best irrigation, as drainage holes can be easily made in them without tampering with the quality of the pots. It does not break when it falls from a reasonable height; it retains its features compared to other types like clay or ceramic that might break
