In this post I discuss the different kinds of materials used for flower pots and containers.
When purchased, most plants are growing in plastic containers. Plastic is light-weight, holds moisture well, and seldom breaks as plants are packed and shipped. There certainly are attractive plastic containers, but those supplied by greenhouse growers are more practical than pretty. Once a plant has had a few weeks to adjust to conditions in its new home, a container upgrade is usually in order. Possible materials include clay, better plastic, fiberglass, and ceramic. I purchase all of my containers from NewProContainers.com; they have such a wide variety of flower pots to choose from that range in many colors and materials.
