What deterimnes if a plant will be happy in a pot?

As someone who loves getting new plants and has limited space so needs to use pots a lot this is usually the first question I have about plants… are they good to grow in pots?

So is there a hard and fast rule about this? Is it the root type, or root size, or something else?

Every plant can be grown in a pot, it just depends on the size of pots you can provide! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Generally though, I would look at plants that don’t grow much more that 50-70cm in height at their final size. Also avoid anything that needs lots of moisture - unless you’re feeling more comfortable with watering and are able to water lots or confident to block drainage holes without overwatering.
