The vases are containers for flowers and plants of all shapes and sizes, they can be small, rectangular and round. Most plants and flowers adapt well to these containers, although sometimes they are not all well. The vases are found not only on balconies and terraces, but also in gardens, especially in areas where there is not much space for cultivation and in houses for growing apartment plants or as ornaments on which to place fake plants or flowers. Furthermore these containers have a decorative value, they enrich an apartment and can be found at the entrance of a villa, a garden and a path. The vases can be of different materials such as earthenware and plastic. In general, plastic is preferred because it has the advantage of being breathable and because it is able to absorb moisture. Furthermore, the plastic is very easy not only to clean, but also to move because it is a light and more manageable material. One of the disadvantages is that it is waterproof, so it does not allow good water drainage. In plastic pots, only plants that are not susceptible to water stagnation can be grown, whereas in the opposite case the risk is that of causing root rot. Instead the earthenware vessels are heavy and more prone to fractures and falls because they are more delicate. Both vessels are equipped with a hole and a saucer at the base, which are useful to promote excessive water spillage. As already mentioned above, the vases have different shapes, for example the rectangular ones are called planters, suitable for every type of plant, allowing to cultivate together different types of plants and flowers. These large containers can be placed on the balcony or placed on the terrace. Even the planters can be in earthenware or plastic, but also in wood and ceramic. The material will be chosen based on the needs and tastes of everyone.
THE CHOICE OF VASE FOR FLOWERS
A beautiful bouquet of flowers, colorful and fragrant, placed in a terrace or balcony, make a space more lively and charming. Flowers are very often considered as decorative elements of an environment. For this reason, the choice of a vase or planter is important to fully enhance the beauty of the flower. Furthermore, the pot must be chosen carefully because if it is not suitable for the plant, it can damage it as it may have characteristics that do not fit its chemical composition. The vases should also be chosen according to the flowers to be placed inside, for example a flower such as the calla, so delicate and elegant, will be placed in a vase that is not too flashy to prevent it from obscuring the beauty of this flower, or vice versa an over-vase simple, does not enhance a lively and fragrant flower such as the tulip.
WOODEN VASES, PVC, CERAMIC AND ALUMINUM
If you want to furnish your home well and tastefully, you need to pay attention to the various furnishing accessories, as the house also reflects our personality, so it is right to furnish the spaces in a careful and detailed way.

The materials used to create furnishing vases are wood, PVC, ceramic and aluminum. A very widespread and appreciated material is wood. The wood is suitable for every type of furniture and thanks to its ductility, it can be worked and decorated in any way. It also looks good both inside and out. PVC is a material resistant to various atmospheric agents and is not subject to humidity. PVC comes from oil, but despite everything, it is not absolutely polluted. One of its advantages is to keep the temperature inside the vessel constant. Even the ceramic is used to create interior and exterior decorative vases. The ceramic, besides being elegant and refined, is an excellent material because it resists hot and cold temperatures and is immune to scratches. The aluminum vases have a bright color and stand out especially if placed in shaded areas, they are excellent because aluminum is a material that does not rust.
