    Fiberstone Pottery

    Although the name might not ring a bell, chances are that you have seen and enjoyed a piece of fiberstone pottery before. Fiberstone pottery yields a variety of shapes, styles, and colors. They’re visually stunning, they look very stylish and attractive, and they boost the overall feel of every home garden, building, and store. That is why we here at Planter Resource pride ourselves in having the best selection of fiberstone pottery in New York City!

    What is Fiberstone?

    Fiberstone is a blend of fiberglass and crushed stone. Fiberstone is a very versatile material that can be made to look like anything. It can have a rough, sandy texture that makes it look like real stone or finished concrete. Fiberstone can also have a smooth to a slightly textured finish. Such materials produce a durable substance that is ideal for indoor and outdoor use at any temperature. It can be polished, raw, or a weathered, aged appearance. Whatever feeling or aesthetic you can put your mind to, there is sure to be a piece of fiberglass pottery that fits your exact specifications.

    A lot of people, while decorating their gardens, unfortunately neglect the impact that fiberstone pots and planters can have. This may be due to the reality that people are not aware of the level of detail and aesthetics to which Fiberstone pots and planters can be built. It’s because, in general, the knowledge of garden Fiberstone pots is very small. As far as Fiberstone planters are concerned, the reactions of people vary from being slightly interested in being seriously puzzled. There is therefore an urgent need to spread awareness of this great material for home decoration as well as gardens.

    Apart from the noticeable benefit of boosting the aesthetics of one’s home and garden, large Fiberstone pots and round Fiberstone pots are also very sturdy. That is because they are made from stronger fiberglass materials than conventional clay pots. As a result, they have a longer life span, can handle more heat, and can even cope with a wide variety of temperature conditions. This is especially useful when a person lives in the tropics, where cycles of sunshine are usually interspersed with heavy rains. However, this is also crucial for us New Yorkers, as the freezing cold during the winter can often leave other pieces of pottery damaged. Thankfully, fiberglass pottery is able to withstand even the coldest of New York winters.

    Lightweight Cement Planters

    If you are looking for a durable outdoor solution to your potted plant, consider our lightweight cement planter options. Dressed to look like cement, they are made from a resin polymer material. Resin is a composite blend of polymer similar to plastic, but with the durability of true cement. It is composed of an inner core, followed by a protective layer of thick polyurethane, and a textured outer shell. These components all come from recycled materials, so you can count on these planters as an eco-friendly option for your home or garden.

    Resin planters are durable, resilient, and surprisingly lightweight. Unlike regular planters, resin planters will not swell and contract with the seasons. When temperatures fluctuate, you can count on these planters to retain their shape without cracks or compromises that would cause other planters to break down. You can also count on these planters to not corrode or lose their color in the rain, snow, or sun. Their lightweight design and durability allow for easy moving, and the ability to transfer plants with the changing seasons – they are otherwise completely maintenance-free.

    Browse our selection of lightweight cement resin products below. Choose from the small and compact egg planters for your tight spaces, or choose one of our larger rectangle designs or tapered squares to make a statement in the center of your garden.

    Why Fiberstone?

    Fiberstone is a mixture of fiberglass and crushed stone. Fiberstone is a versatile material. It can have a rough and sandy texture which makes it look and feel like real stone or finished concrete. It can also have a smooth to a lightly textured finish. These materials create a durable material that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use at any temperature. It can be colored, natural, or have a weathered aged look.

    The combination of these materials used to make fiberstone produce the appearance of natural stone but is lightweight and more versatile than natural stone. Additionally, fiberstone is easier to move than identical concrete and natural stone products. The reinforced fiberglass backing of fiberstone makes it less fragile than concrete.

    All of these pots finishes have all the benefits of fiberglass planters in that they can be used indoors or outdoors fiberstone, so durable that pots and planters can be filled with dirt and left outdoors year-round. No more hauling your planters inside every winter. As with fiberglass all pieces are hand finished and will vary from piece to piece.

    Shopping For New Planters?

    When shopping for planters it’s vital to compare the materials utilized for the manufacturing of such products. outdoor planters need to battle off the sun, snow, dogs lifting their legs, and so much more. Not to mention the constant fluctuation between hot and cold temperatures. With so much going against your outdoor landscaping products, it’s no wonder people end up replacing planters so often.

    Luckily, you don’t have to replace your planters anytime soon. There’s a certain type of planter material available that allows you a worry-free, maintenance-free solution to planters so they can last way longer. It’s our Durastone line of products, not the same plastic-based resin you’ll find at your local gardening center.

    Lightweight and Durable

    Made out of Polyethylene Resin, these planters reproduce perfectly the color, texture, and appearance of traditional garden products, but without the weight. They will not chip, crack, or fade when exposed to environmental conditions. The perfect lightweight container that will survive the test of time.

    The planters at your local garden shop are made of a more traditional plastic ‘resin’ but our type of resin originates from high-density polyethylene, meaning it’s really not just plastic. We use high-quality resin materials to craft our Durastone line of products.

    Durability, lightweight, flexibility, and strength are some advantages of growing plants in our Durastone containers. They are excellent choices for moisture-loving plants, and not only do they provide great protection but with lots of organic material it will soft and keep your plants healthy, furthermore, it will also act like a filtering system that will help to catch and collect the chemicals so less of them make it to the roots of your plant.

    Why Choose Durastone?

    Once you see the differences between genuine resin products and other outdoor product materials, the clear choice is Durastone. If you don’t want to deal with replacing your outdoor planters anytime soon, we’ve got you covered with the best material to go with.

    Our Durastone pots are also stronger and more flexible than clay pots for instance. We have a wider range of styles available. One of the main disadvantages of clay pots is that they break much more easily than plastic. If you drop a clay pot, it will likely shatter. Clay is also easy to chip if bumped or tipped over. Durastone pots are easier to clean and disinfect and will last much longer.

Does Your Garden Pottery Need Drainage?

Yes! We will always recommend the selection of drainage planters and pots, especially if you are testing the water in your watering capacity. It’s absolutely possible to render planters with a little finesse without drainage. It’s best to try to pour no more than 1/3 of the bottle capacity into the bowl. You may also line the bottom of the planter with lava rocks or anything close to create crevices for excess water to flow into. These methods will definitely help to reduce the chances of root rot.

What About Planter Size?

When we speak about plants, we sometimes refer to them in sizes or inches. This does not apply to the planter at all but refers to the diameter of the planter pot in which it is grown. For example, a 4 “plant refers to a plant growing in a 4” diameter pot, regardless of the size of the plant it comes in a 4 “high x 4” wide pot. These measuring criteria are used to manage variation of height and plant forms. A cactus that fits into a 4 “pot can be 1″ or 1 ft. tall. When choosing a pot, choose a pot that is 1-2″ larger than the current pot size if the plant is currently in a 10” pot or smaller. If your current pot size is >10”, choose a pot that is 2-3” larger in diameter.

Should You Repot Your Plants?

First things first: repotting doesn’t quite involve changing the current planter of a plant, but instead changing the soil or potting mix. Fresh garden soil nutrients that are different. If you enjoy your present planter, this is wonderful news, but if you want to buy a new one, that’s good, too. Try to maintain the scale no more than 3 “larger in diameter for tabletop planters while you are changing planters, and no more than 6” larger in diameter for ground planters.

Your new planter can only need to be an inch bigger if you’re repotting a very small plant! The size here is significant because we will usually be more likely to water more frequently as we move our plants to a bigger pot with more soil. A tiny plant with an oversized planter and plenty of soil with too much water means murdering your plant unintentionally. You don’t want your plant to float in the dirt, but rather have a little extra space for the year ahead to expand.

It’s always a little fun to get dirty and, most importantly, it’s good for your plant. When you buy a new plant, it is possible that it has already overgrown. Overgrown plants look bright and new from the greenhouse, but without careful repotting, the plant would die in attempts to match the plastic jar you came in. Thus, repotting your plant also gives it a fresh potting mixture to grow in. Not only will the plant be able to sustain its existing height, but it will also be able to grow bigger. Initially, repotting doesn’t always mean going up a pot size. Repotting could mean changing the old potting mixture that has degraded the nutrients.

Scheduling

Obviously it depends on how vigorously they grow, plants usually need to be repotted every 12 to 18 months. For years, some slow growers may call the same pot home, but they would only require replacement of the soil. Springtime is typically the perfect time to repot your houseplants, before the beginning of the growing season.

If you see one of these signals or a combination of them, you’ll feel it is time for repotting:

  • At the base of the planter, roots expand into the drainage hole.
  • The plant is being pulled up by roots from the planter,
  • Plant growth is slower (different from winter dormancy) than average.
  • The plant is incredibly strong and quickly falls over.
  • The plant dries out quicker than normal and needs more regular irrigation.
  • Plant pieces take up many as three times the pot area above ground.
  • A significant build-up of salt and minerals on the plant or planter

Here’s what you want to have handy:

  • Your new houseplant, naturally,
  • The planter in which you’re potting
  • New blend for potting
  • Lava rocks or equivalent (if your planter does not have a drainage hole)

Steps To Start Repotting Yourself!

Drop a plant from an existing pot

Switch the new plant sideways, gently grasp it by the stems or leaves, and before the plant slips out, touch the bottom of its current container. With a couple of soft tugs on the base of the roots, you might need to give it some support.

Loosen the source

In your palms, loosen the plant’s roots softly. You should prune off some extra long threadlike roots, just make sure that the thicker roots are left at the base of the foliage. If your plant is root attached, the roots expand along the base of the plant in very close loops, unbinding the roots as best you can and giving them a trim.

Delete the old potting mix from the

Remove around one third or so of the plant’s surrounding potting mix. Your plant absorbed some of the nutrients in the present mix as it expanded, so if you’re potting it anyway, you’ll want to give it a fresh mix!

Add a new blend for potting

Through the new planter, pour a coat of fresh potting soil and pack it down, eliminating any pockets of air. Before applying the potting mix, layer the bottom with lava rocks or the like (rocks, dirt, etc.) if your new planter does not have a drainage hole. The purpose is to create crevices, away from the roots of your plant, for the excess water to pool in.

Add plant to plant

Set the plant you removed from the growing pot in the new planter on top of the fresh layer of mix, make sure it is centered, and apply the potting mix around the plant until it is healthy. As you want the roots to breathe, make careful not to pack too much dirt into the planter.

Water and Please Enjoy

Water well, even out the potting soil on top, and enjoy!
