Resin vases: aesthetic appearance and practicality
Resin vases represent an ideal container for the cultivation of numerous species. Characterized by a particularly pleasant aesthetic appearance, they can be placed either indoors, indoors, or outdoors on the balcony, in the garden, on the terrace or on the veranda. Among rotational vessels and double-edged vessels, the solutions to choose from are numerous, depending on tastes and needs. For example, the Vicenza cylinder vase is appreciated for the elegance of the shape, while the Molina box recalls the earthenware containers. Among the advantages coming from resin vases, we point out the remarkable lightness, which makes them transportable from one side of the house or garden without commitment or effort, and above all the ease of cleaning, which makes them advisable even for those who do not has a lot of time to devote to the maintenance of the plants and therefore of the containers that receive them. From the point of view of prices, they are positioned halfway between the more economic plastic and the more expensive terracotta, and moreover, compared to the latter, they do not break when they fall; resistant, therefore, and robust, they are able to withstand the weather without specific difficulties, facing hail and violent downpours in tranquility. Another undoubtedly noteworthy feature is their ability not to wear over time.
Containers that can adapt to any environment
Whether it is flower boxes or smaller containers, resin vases provide color and class, while at the same time providing a lot of personality to the plants buried there. As for the vases built with rotational technology, they are able to adapt to any kind of setting, in virtue of the sinuous profile and the similarity with natural materials such as porcelain, ceramic or terracotta. There are many models available on the market, thanks to the molding process that creates different finishes and textures that can visually enrich any environment. Resin vases are also perfect for patios, porches and terraces, and sometimes give the impression of being small sculptures: just think of the Kiam vase or the Kube High vase.
All the advantages of plastic, earthenware and terracotta
Resin, in essence, has all the advantages of plastic and terracotta, that is to say the materials of which vases are made in most cases, but without suffering the defects. It does not propose, in fact, the fairly flat and monotonous look typical of plastic, which in the face of considerable practicality must come to terms with a decidedly insignificant appearance, based more on functionality than beauty; and at the same time it is not as fragile as terracotta, which just falls to the ground and shatters into a thousand pieces. Furthermore, it is not as expensive as terracotta, and on the other hand, like plastic, it can be moved and moved with relative ease. For this reason plastic pots are the ideal solution for growing those plants which, for different needs, must be moved often, for example from the sun to the shade, or from the outside to the inside in the presence of particularly unfavorable weather conditions. Using resin pots we can also plant shrubs of significant size without breaking our backs whenever we want to lift and transfer them.
The benefits of resin
The benefits of the resin, however, do not end there. Characterized, in the creation of vases, by an advanced design that manages to combine essential lines, simplicity, cleanliness and a refined style, it is often presented in the form of modern, original and practical containers. The resin is a non-toxic material, which can therefore be recycled without problems. Furthermore, because it has low thermal conduction, the containers are able to maintain humidity even in the presence of unfavorable climatic conditions, for example with very hot sun rays or with particularly rapid temperature changes. In fact, it is well known that excessively rapid temperature changes can cause the worst damage to plants, which instead favor slow and gradual temperature changes. The ability to retain humidity, on the other hand, translates into the possibility of performing less frequent and constant maintenance on the plants, because it assumes that the waterings must be carried out with less regularity.
Resin vases: Little breathable walls
On the other hand, it should also be pointed out that the poor transpirability of the resin walls makes it possible to avoid that the evaporation of water brings with it numerous nutrients (and consequently also fertilization will be less frequent than that, for example, necessary for a plant located in a terracotta pot), but at the same time increases the risk of water stagnation, frequent in the presence of a poorly draining soil, which causes poor flow of water causing root rot or other fungal infections. This is why the soil must be very draining if resin pots are used, and watering must be carried out when the soil, touched with a finger, is completely dry. It is, moreover, the only device to be adopted for a material that is otherwise highly advisable.
