If you're wondering what size is a plant, you're not alone. There can be confusion as to what size plant you should get. Normally, plant sizes are identified by their planter size listed as the measurement that comes before the plant name. For example: 4" Jade Plant. But many times, people confuse the planter measurement with the actual plant measurement. To help with plant size identification, we list our plant sizes by Mini, Small, Medium, Large, and Full Size. If you're trying to decide how big of a plant to get, here's a translation of the sizing:
These plants are very small. They are usually no more than 2-3 inches in height. Mini plants have nursery planter sizes that are around 2 inches.
These are the ideal small desktop/shelf plants. They are usually 5-15 inches in height, depending on the type of plant you get. Small plants have nursery planter sizes that are around 4 inches.
Medium plants are bigger desktop/shelf plants. They are usually 1-2 feet in height and make more of a presence. Medium plants have nursery planter sizes that are around 6 inches.
These are ideal small floor plants, although some may fit on a desktop or even a shelf. Their height ranges anywhere from 3 feet to 7 feet, depending on the type of plant you buy. Large plants have nursery planter sizes that are around 10 inches.
These are big floor plants, making one hell of an impression and presence. Their height ranges anywhere from 5 feet for a bushy full-size plant to 9 feet for a standard houseplant tree. Their nursery planter sizes are around 14 inches.
Please note that the measurements provided for each different plant description are the measurements of the plant in the picture taken.
