Metal planters are costly yet classy. To make sure you invest in the right metal planter, here are three things you should look for before you buy it:

Drainage hole: Without a drainage hole, metal planters should not be used to directly grow plants. Even if there is a drainage hole, we recommend using metal planters only as cache pots. Place a potted plant inside a metal planter to get the best for your plant and your home aesthetic.

Paint: A powder coating prevents the metal from rusting and has better performance than regular paint.

Indoor-use Only: Metal planters are ornamental and are suitable for indoor-use only. They provide little to no insulation. The sun may heat up the planter, causing the soil temperature to rise, which is harmful for plant roots, so you better reconsider leaving those sleek-looking metal planters outdoors!
