Do you have a penchant for handmade, one-of-a-kind pots? Do you prefer textured or smooth finishes, bold or muted colours, simple or elaborate shapes? Work out what appeals to you, how well the pot will compliment the plant, and if the pot will fit in with the overall look of your home.
If you are working with a delicate plant, try a light-coloured container with a simple shape. Pair a plant that has a strong, sculptural shape or bold colours with a visually striking vessel for an amplified effect or, for a softer look, choose a simpler pot. Large plants often work well with bold containers, like painted or patterned pots, where the plant isn't swamped by the loudness of the pattern.
