Large Lightweight Planters: Create the Wow Without a Lot of Effort

When it comes to larger plants, whether they are intended for indoor or outdoor use, it can be difficult to find planters that are effective and easy to work with. This is why so many people appreciate them and are choosing to use large lightweight planters now.

They provide a focal point to your room without taking away from the rest of your décor. These planters can also provide a simple and easy solution to an issue that many plant lovers face, which is finding a suitable pot that can fit larger plants - without breaking the bank of course. The larger your pot is the higher the price tag is and sometimes you just can not justify the purchase.

Affordable Extra Large Planters

Large planters are known to cost an arm and a leg whether they are for indoor or outdoor use. Due to the size and material used they can typically run anywhere from $100 to $250 on average, with some options being more expensive than that. Especially if you go for a heavier material such as ceramic, clay, or even pottery.

A large ceramic outdoor planter will cost you more than a lightweight planter of a similar size because of the material used. These lightweight planters however are typically made out of materials like resin and fiberglass. This brings their cost down significantly while still providing you with a high-quality product that meets your needs.

One of the perks to these pots is that unless you bought it yourself or move it around, it can be hard to tell the difference between an actual clay pot and a lightweight one made out of resin. That is how similar these different types of pots are to one another. Which makes them great options if you a pot that looks more expensive for a fraction of the price.

Easy to Move

A major win with large lightweight planters is that they are just that, lightweight. This means that they will be able to move and style as time goes on. No more worrying about lifting a heavy pot when you are sweeping or cleaning up.

To elaborate more here’s an example of the weight difference between the two types of pots. On average a tall ceramic pot can weigh anywhere from twenty to fifty pounds depending on its width and height. Whereas a lightweight option can typically weigh anywhere from three to fifteen pounds.

It’s important to note that these weights are just the weight of the pots themselves. So, once you factor in the weights of the plant itself, soil, decorative rocks, soil filler, and water the pot will be even heavier. All of these factors can add another five pounds or so to the final weight. Proving the lighter options to be ideal for anyone as they are easier to maneuver around.


As if large lightweight planters did not have enough perks, they are also long lasting and durable. The materials used, either fiberglass or resin in most cases, tend to be less porous allowing the pots to hold up better over time. They can be used indoors or outdoors, truly making them an all-purpose planter for your tall plants.

They are easy to clean and require little to no maintenance. While being able to withstand different seasons and the weather that they bring along.

Classic Styles

Modern pieces tend to be timeless as they can evolve with you. If you are interested in a large modern planter that is lightweight, a fiberglass-based one may be the right choice for you. Most of them are mixed with more neutral and natural materials and color palettes allowing them to fit a modern theme well.

The best lightweight round pot plants that we found were mostly made out of resin. This is because the thicker substance can dry quickly and hold the intended shape well. They also tend to exude a high-quality look at a fraction of the cost. What more can you ask for from a plant pot?

To Conclude

Any of these materials or styles that we mentioned will add the wow factor to your space for a fraction of the price and effort. Although you may not get the same workout in from moving a lightweight planter around, they more than make up for it with their looks.

The next time you are looking for a large plant pot that is more lightweight consider these options. Not only are they well worth their price tag but they will last you a long time as well.
