The stickers may be of animals, flowers, simple sayings, or emojis; they are enough to enhance the plain pots.

Moreover, the sticker’s color may fade if you place the pot on direct light, so choose a place with indirect light.

4. Stony Ceramic Pots

5. Jewel Garnished Ceramic Pots

If you love shining ornaments and jewel stones, jewel-garnished ceramic pots are definitely for you.

Plants with thick leaves or vibrant-colored blooms will look absolutely stunning in this type of pot.

For the amazingly stunning appearance, plant the sun-loving plants on this pot and place it in direct sunlight enjoying its sparkles.

6. Choosing the Perfect Shapes

Apart from all the decorations, you can enhance your living space easily if you choose the perfect-shaped pots for your houseplants.

Round pots are suitable for every plant, but the herbs like coriander, parsley, mint, etc., suit perfectly on this pot.

  • Choose rectangular pots for wider plants and vegetables. Flowering plants will also thrive best in square or rectangular pots.
  • Additionally, Select tall pots for the plants with a deep root system to avoid root rot and root bounding.
  • You can find specific pot shapes with wider and shallow surfaces for some special plants like bonsai trees and orchids.

Thus, selecting perfect shapes will not only enhance the decor but also maintains sustainability while growing houseplants.

7. Selecting Perfect Places

Although you select perfect shapes, colors, and good decorations, your pots will be worth nothing if you place them in the wrong places.

Never place low-light plants in direct sunlight, as they may lose their vigor or die due to excessive temperature.

  • If you place them beside the window, place sheer curtains to provide them with dappled sunlight.
  • Moreover, some high-humidity plants like peace lily, Boston Fern, pothos varieties, etc., will suit perfectly in low-light bathrooms.

Additionally, the herbs and flowering plants will suit perfectly on direct sunlight, so provide artificial light if you grow them indoors.
