How to Measure Plant Pots

If your plants are going to be healthy and thriving, you’ll need to put them in the right-sized pots to ensure they have enough soil and nutrients to survive and grow.

Measuring your plant pots is easy, all you need is a tape measure and these simple steps.

Step-by-Step Guide for Measuring Plant Pots

  • Step 1: Measure the width and length of the pot from the outside edges in a straight line across the widest part of the pot.
  • Step 2: Measure the depth of the pot from the top opening or rim to the bottom of the pot.
  • Step 3: Record the measurements in inches and/or centimeters.

Make sure that you know whether it is a square or a round pot, as these measurements will be slightly different.

Once you have the measurements, you can use them to determine the size of the pot your plant needs. For most plants, a 12-inch pot or larger is ideal.

Be sure to measure your pots before planting to ensure your plants have the right environment to be happy and healthy for many years!
