1 quart plant pot size

How big is a 1 quart flower pot?

Also question is, how many inches is a 1 quart pot?

5-6 inch pot (13-15 cm) = 1 quart (1L) = 0.03 cu. ft. 7-8 inch pot (18-20 cm) = 1 gallon (4L) = 0.15 cu.

Also Know, how big should a pot be for a plant? As a general guide, choose a pot with room for at least 1 or 2 gallons of soil for herb plants and annual plants that bloom. Perennial flowering plants, vegetables and large plants need pots that can hold at least 5 gallons of soil. A large pot also is necessary when more than one plant will be in the container.

Each quart is about 4” x 4” and 3.5′ to 5” deep (exact measurements vary slightly depending on the pot manufacturer). Whether you are interested in growing a specimen, or creating a grouping, these plants will be quick to establish and put on a show. Actual pot size is 3.5” x 3.5” x 3.5”.

Pot Size Conversion

Today was one of those days I wish there was something “standardized” about pot sizes. One catalog uses one set of measurements, another catalog uses something else. Stores use inches, nurseries use gallons. Ahhhh.

Trying to figure out pot sizes is often quite a headache. You’ve got some in inches, some in gallons, and yes, even some in fluid ounces; the later we’re still trying to figure out. They do make this confusing, don’t they? There’s a theory going around that this purposely confusing system is a way for the mass market industry to charge more for plants, by container size, not necessarily Plant Size!

So let’s try and break down these various sizes and measurements and set some general “accepted standards” for pot sizes. Please remember these are rough estimates and not a science. Some of the larger sizes especially are prone to variances in height, width, and depth of the pot. We’ve also attached a photograph that we hope will help allow you to visualize the differences.
