Different plants require different levels of light and moisture. Some thrive in light sandy soil, while others prefer heavy, loamy soil. As such, our planters are designed for specific types of plants. For instance, the Chromo’s self-watering system makes it ideal for plants that require consistent moisture, while the Hive Planter is specially designed for low-maintenance air plants. Please refer to the product pages for plant recommendations for each planter. If you’d like more information, the Light + Ladder Plant Guide will guide you through the specifics of our planters and the needs of their recommended plant partners.
