Nowadays, ceramic plant pots are found quite commonly, given their beauty, artistry and functionality.

Maintenance and Care- Preserving the Beauty of Designer Pots
To maintain the timeless appeal and elegance offered by these designer pots, it is essential to look after them and ensure their proper care. Here below are some simple yet effective tips to keep your ceramic plant pots in their best condition and ensure longevity.
1. Regular cleaning:
Easy peasy! Just take any damp cloth and wipe off the entire area of the ceramic plant pots to maintain its natural lustre. This also helps in removing the debris and dust on its surface, ensuring you lasting beauty.
2. Protection from extreme weather:
During harsh weather conditions like freezing or scorching hot temperatures, make sure to shift your pots so that they are not directly exposed to extreme weather conditions.
3. Avoiding water retention:
You can add pebbles underneath, at the bottom of the pots, to ensure proper drainage before planting. This prevents water accumulation, ensuring the well-being of your pots as well as your plants.
4. Periodic repainting:
You can go for periodic painting whenever you feel there is a necessity to. If the designer pots show signs of fading or chipping, it is better to get them repainted to restore their original charm. You could also change the design or colours as per your preferences while repainting your planters.
5. Appropriate Positioning for Safety:
Given their clay-made structure, if ceramic plant pots fall to a hard surface from a reasonable height, there are chances of breakage or crack in their exterior or inner linings. Thus, it becomes necessary to position your designer pots in spaces where you can ensure security and safety.
