Whether plastic (1), terracotta (2), stainless steel (3) or metal (4) - watering cans are made of different materials. It is particularly important that this is weatherproof, so that the watering can can be left outside on the balcony, terrace or garden in case of doubt.
Watering cans made of a natural material such as terracotta must therefore be glazed. Otherwise they will allow moisture to pass through, which can lead to unsightly water spots on the watering can itself and on the base.
Especially if you have a lot of plants to water or want to buy a large watering can, you should consider when buying how heavy the watering can is when unfilled. After all, the weight increases enormously depending on the amount filled. The lightest variant here is plastic.
You should also consider the capacity you need when choosing your design watering can. While offers many or large plants an XL watering can to avoid annoying refilling, for indoor plants a capacity of around 2 litres is usually sufficient. The latter is also the conventional size for indoor watering cans.
To make the use of the watering can pleasant and easy, an ergonomic design is crucial. This can refer either to the handle (1) or to the shape of the watering can in general (2), so that a handle is not necessarily necessary, for example. For comfortable and good handling it is also important that the "water spout" is already preformed, so that only a slight tilt is sufficient. You should also answer the question of whether the watering can can be used one-handed or whether both hands are necessary before purchasing.
The crucial difference when pouring is whether your jug should work like a shower or produce a jet. Both variants have their own advantages: For example, a shower can simulate fine rain, which is an easy way to vitalize the leaves, especially for house plants with large leaves. A jet enables targeted watering , so that nothing goes wrong. The best option is therefore to use watering cans with an optional shower attachment, which combine both.
"If you fertilize your plants differently or leave the water in the watering can, you should also clean it. To do this, it is usually sufficient to rinse them with detergent or boiling water. But beware! Put on pot gloves so you don't scald your hands." - Viktoria, interior design expert
