Should I Use a Glazed or Unglazed Bonsai Pot? Differences Between Glazed and Unglazed Pots

Selecting a Glazed or Unglazed pot can be a big deal, and there are a couple different factor that you need to take in to account when choosing to use a Glazed or Unglazed Bonsai Pot.

For professionals who know the difference between glazed and unglazed choosing the right bonsai pot can be a big deal. In general, unglazed bonsai pots will allow the roots to breathe better, because they allow more oxygen into the soil. This will also mean that the soil will dry out quicker. So if you have a plant or tree that likes or needs a generally moist soil all the time, you may not want to use an unglazed pot. Or you will just ned to water your bonsai more often.

The Glazed Bonsai Pots will retain more moisture, so you might not need to water as often. The glaze helps hold in moisture in the pot and soil. Air cannot move through a glazed pot as well as an unglazed one. A glazed pot can also add to the overall aesthetic look of the potted bonsai. If you are making a tropical plant into a bonsai tree, then you might be better off using a glazed pot. Since tropical plants are used to typically having moist soil and are usually located in more humid regions, the glazed pot will help replicate this a little better than an unglazed bonsai pot.

So, Whether you are going for a traditional look, or if you are just trying to get a colored pot that looks good in your house or yard, the pot will play a big roll in this. Chose a pot that compliments the plant, and will work well with the roots.
