Terracotta framed my Manhattan window, and littered my inside windowsill where my houseplants lived. These are the 3 reasons why terracotta is the best material for planters.

1. Environment
Terracotta is an environmentally responsible, biodegradable material. It is clay from the earth.

2. Habitat
Terracotta is a porous material, and will naturally absorb extra moisture from the plant’s soil, protecting it against overwatering.

3. Aesthetic
