Minimalist Rectangular Indoor Planter

Latitude Run®

Made from matte ceramic, this white rectangular planter is perfect for inside your house. The planter has a separate saucer that catches any overrun from watering. Two drainage holes sit at the bottom of the planter. At 4.64'' high by 14.56'' long and 6.1' wide, this planter can hold up to 190 oz worth of soil and plants.

Designer Advice:

The simple, minimalist design of this indoor planter makes it easy to pair with any interior design. It highlights what’s placed inside of the pot rather than the pot itself. Large enough for creative flower or plant arrangements yet small enough to use in tight spaces, this white ceramic trough planter gives you an elegant way to bring some plant beauty to your home.

We love the rounded edges of this ceramic in its rectangular shape.

Buying Guide

To find the best rectangular indoor planter, there are critical factors that you need to remember before making a purchase.

How to pick the right size rectangular planter?

Before you get a rectangular indoor planter, you first need to research on the type of plant that you plan on growing. There are certain plants that require more sun exposure compared to others. There are also plants that thrive under a shade as well.

The plant that you will be growing affects the size that is ideal for your planter. Your plant may need lots of room for its roots to spread out. Fortunately, rectangular indoor planters come in all sizes. When in doubt, it is better to err on the safe side and buy the biggest planter that your plant/s can grow into.

Another thing to consider here is how strong you are. If you are like other people who have a green thumb, then you’d be moving your planter often. You may also be the type of homeowner who likes switching up things around the house. If you won’t be able to lift heavy planters, then opt for a small, lightweight one. A large planter may look great, but it is not for everybody.

What else to consider when shopping for indoor planters?

  • Plant Caddies and Carts - These accessories help in moving massive rectangular indoor planters around the house.
  • Self-Watering Planters - These planters come with a design that wicks water as well as water-soluble fertilizer from the reservoir that’s at the bottom or exterior of each container.
  • Plant Stands - A plant stand will add more style and beauty to any type of indoor planter.
  • Plant Saucer - This accessory protects your indoor flooring as it catches any excess water.
  • Planter Liner - It’s used with a hanging indoor planter to soak up water and hold the soil in.

What are the pros and cons of different rectangular indoor planter materials?

  • Metal - A metal indoor planter is great for contemporary or modern-styled homes with its classy look. Metal is a sturdy material and it’s a good choice for indoor planting and decorating as the dry atmosphere of your home ensures the material doesn’t rust. We recommend you use a planter liner with a metal container for plants so you won’t have to give it a primer coating.
  • Plastic - A plastic planter is a cost-effective option. It's so affordable, but it comes with the same exact classic appeal a wooden planter has. It's also durable and lightweight. If you want a planter that can hold moisture well, then plastic is your best option.
  • Vinyl - A vinyl planter provides the look and appeal of wood, but it’s lightweight and more durable compared to some types of wood. It comes in various colors and sizes. It's also less expensive than wooden planters.
  • Wood - A wooden planter is popular for its attractive, warm, and natural appearance. It retains water, but it must be used with a plant saucer so as not to inflict damage to your flooring. A wooden planter is made of rot-resistant wood (cedar or redwood).
