Glass, China, And Ceramic
Three beautiful alternatives
But if you're looking for a wide variety of styles in a huge variety of price ranges - here they are! Whatever your color and style preference, from unadorned simplicity to unabashed kitsch you can find something in glass, china, or ceramic with ease.
Clear glass is fun for growing bulbs in - you can watch the roots grow along with the top. Most containers, however, are opaque. They tend to reflect rather than absorb the sun, which means plants will enjoy nice, cool root runs. Best of all, most of these containers are relatively lightweight - a boon if you love to play musical plants with your pots.
