Terracotta and cement, indoor / outdoor materials
The terracotta and cement pots are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Terracotta, being a porous material, also absorbs excess water and allows the plant to make use of it when it needs it. It is an ideal material, therefore, for plants with rotting problems that can be planted directly in the pot, thanks to the drainage hole in the bottom and the plate to collect excess water, depending on the type of plant it will be. important to empty.
While the terracotta pots provide warmth, the concrete ones give us a more modern and cold aesthetic. However, both share a characteristic that we consider attractive: natural variations of the material turn each unit into a unique object.
In natural materials
Bamboo, water hyacinth or solid poplar ... are some of the natural materials that Ikea bets on. And it is that the current trend of betting on decorative objects of a handmade nature, has favored that vegetable fibers and solid wood regain their lost prominence, both in the collections of furniture houses and in our homes.
Most of the Ikea pots made of these materials, have a plastic interior that waterproofs the pot. In this way, neither the earth nor the humidity damage the exterior, making it more durable and practical. In natural colors, you can find them with different designs and sizes, for more or less large plants.
And don't be fooled by the view. Although they all seem made of natural materials, you will find many polypropylene in the catalog that imitate them.
With a modern aesthetic
One of the outstanding pieces among the new Ikea pots is the Gojibär pot with stand. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, this steel pot with black polyester powder coating allows us to play with different heights. In addition, since the base is flat, you can also do without the gold steel support and use the pot alone on a table or other surface. Do you prefer a planter in softer tones? Among the Ikea planters with modern aesthetics, those from the Gradvis series will attract your attention thanks to their ribbed design.
Although if you want to create a vertical garden, the sculptural shapes of the Chilistran hanging planter - on the cover - will be the ones that convince you. To create a vertical garden, you will only have to hang one pot over another with the help of the lower bar, taking into account that the maximum load is 15 kg distributed between one or more planters suspended from the same fixture. Isn't that ideal for creating a aromatic herb garden next to the kitchen window?

The Skurar series has been designed to put a romantic touch to our home. It is inspired by traditional crafts, white wedding dresses, bridal tiaras ... and lace, of course. Its parts are made of steel, but they look like delicate lace edging with a scallop edge.
Ikea planters from the Kamomill and Sharonfrikt series also have that classic and romantic character. Both made of glazed stoneware they can stay out in the open at freezing temperatures without freezing, as long as it is cleared of soil or covered. The first stands out for its ribbed design; the second, for the shine and the decorated edges
