Nursery Pot Dimensions (grow pot)

Most plants are grown in a “standard” sized grow pot for use in the indoor plant hire industry.

If you are designing your own planter boxes and features, please use the following as a guide so that the plants can be used in your design without modification. Sometimes inadequately sized pots must be used to accommodate the designs we encounter. This unnecessary re-potting of a plant disturbs the roots of new plants and can result in the plant not surviving. Additionally, it is not easy to replace the plant when the need arises as a specialty sized pot must be sourced each time. Grow pots are selected to best suit the species and size of the plant, keeping the plant in this pot assists in the healthiest and best looking plant.
