Before we dive into the trends, here are a few important factors to keep in mind when you are selecting pottery and your indoor plants:
The most important feature to look for when selecting your stylish container is a drain hole. Proper drainage is essential to the health of your plant when you are watering your plants. Check out all our new pottery selections here and see what colors and styles work for you.
The quality of your potting soil will greatly impact the health of your plants. Indoor plants need a well-draining soil that retains the proper levels of moisture. Calloway’s Premium Potting Soil provides the ideal balance of air and water to foster healthy root growth for thriving plants.

TREND 1: RETRO
The Retro look is always in style. Who doesn’t love the clean lines, pops of color, and organic shapes? This welcoming trend is traditional with an unexpected twist. You will love these stylish accents around your home and office.
When it comes to selecting your plants, there are so many to choose from! You need to be mindful of the size of the plant and make sure it will fit in your container with room to grow.
We think the Polka Dot Splash Plant, also known as the Freckled Face plant, will really jazz this trend up. Native to Madagascar, this indoor plant is attractive and colorful. The specks of red, white, and pink pair nicely with the smooth, glossy lines of the container.
Polka Dot Splash plants prefer bright, indirect light. When it come to watering your plants, only water when the top 1-2 inches of the soil is dry to the touch.
TREND 2: MATTE
Matte finishes are everything. As we have seen in home décor trends, metallics and glossy surfaces are popular accent features. Pairing that with a Matte finish is the cherry on top. Matte styles have hit the fashion world in many ways from nail polish to paint colors. It has an alluring and unexpected quality that provides the perfect amount of contrast to any material or textile. Matte finishes create a relaxed feel with a futuristic approach.
Plant a spectacular indoor selection in your Matte container, like the Zebra Plant. Zebra Plants are a very interesting specimen of houseplant. They are prized for their fantastic foliage. Their large, dark green leaves are striped with white, silvery veins, reminiscent of the stripes on a zebra.
Zebra Plants require lots of moisture and warmth indoors, especially during the winter. They prefer bright, filtered light. Avoid direct sunlight. Water enough to keep the soil moist and never allow the soil to dry out. Mist frequently during the growing season. Zebra Plants do best in indoor temperatures around 60-70 degrees F. In the summer, Zebra plants can bloom yellow flowers. Once blooms are spent, cut back to allow room for future growth.
TREND 3: GEOMETRIC
Geometric patterns and styles will be a huge trend this coming year. They are bold, timeless, and extremely versatile. You can find geometric patterns in fabrics, tiles, light fixtures, and pottery! We have a great selection of geometric pottery in stores now! Geometric patterns make a statement and can be used in many different scales, styles, and colors.
Complement your Geometric container selection with a low maintenance indoor plant. Try the ZZ Plant! ZZ Plants thrive indoors under fluorescent lights, making it a great choice for your home or office. Extremely forgiving and tolerant of our busy schedules, this indoor plant is tough. We love ZZ Plants for their decorative, glossy leaves. They carry an exotic flair and add an interesting texture to your space.
Water your plant when the top 1-2 inches of your potting soil dries out.
TREND 4: PORCELAIN
Porcelain pottery will bring beauty to any space. The classic patterns and simple colors add a vintage flavor in a subtle way. The timeless porcelain material is brought to life with hand-painted elements and patterns.
Make a statement with a vintage flair and a Dracaena plant. Dracaena is a gorgeous tropical plant. It contains upright canes and long leaves striped with colors like dark green, chartreuse, and white. Breathe easy with this plant, NASA studies reveal that Dracaena eliminates significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene.
Dracaena prefers bright, indirect light. Water when the soil feels dry to the touch.
TREND 5: MOSAIC
More Mosaics please! Mosaic patterns are a popular trend incorporated into fashion and home décor in many different and new ways, like pottery. They add an abstract texture while creating a cohesive style to any space. Layer in this old style with modern pieces for a trendy display.
Enjoy the benefits of your Mosaic pottery when you plant a Money Tree! Many people believe Money Trees bring good luck and financial success. Money Trees have a braided trunk with long green leaves. They are a low maintenance plant and a popular choice for apartment dwellers.
Avoid direct sunlight and heater vents to avoid scorching the leaves. Water when the top 2-4 inches of the soil is dry.
TREND 6: MINIMALIST
Sometimes less is more. Add accent pieces that are simple and neutral to your space. Concrete styles and natural elements create a crisp and clean look. Let the clean lines and subtle marble texture give your space depth and create a personalized feel.
Add beautiful drama to your indoor space when you plant Sansevieria. Best known for its air-purifying qualities, Sansevieria helps absorb carbon dioxide in your home while releasing oxygen. Also known as Mother In Law’s Tongue, we love the upright habit and various shades of green of this plant. It will add color and texture to any indoor space.
Sansevieria prefer bright, indirect light and can tolerate low light. Water when the soil feels dry to the touch.
Happy New Year! We hope you find the style or styles that are perfect for you and your space. Enjoy all the benefits of indoor plants and the beauty they will bring to your everyday life.
