I am not sure if something like this was posted on the forums or not. Here is a list of the pot sizes in inches, converted to gallons. These are general estimates, and obviously does not consider different widths/height for the provided inches.

I pulled this from another site:

Yeah they do make this confusing, don’t they? I have always believed (and a friend who has been in the nursery business confirmed for me) that its a way for the mass market industry to charge more for plants, by container size, not necessarily PLANT SIZE.

The “kind of accepted” standards are these:

a 4″ pot= a pint
a 5/6″ pot= a quart
an 7/8″ pot= a gallon
(there are also 2 gallon sizes, though harder to find)
a 10″ pot = a 3 gallon
a 14″ pot= a 7 gallon
a 20″ pot= a 10 gallon
a 24″ pot = a 15 gal
a 30″ pot= a 20 gal
a 35″ pot = a 25/30 gal

How big is a 12 inch pot?

Pot Sizes (inches) Pot Equivalent (U.S. Gallons) International (Liters)
10″ pot 3 gallon 11 L [11.35]
12″ pot 5 gallon 15 L [15.14]
14″ pot 7 gallon 19 L [18.92]
16″ pot 10 gallon 22.5 L [22.71]

Beside this, how big is a 12l pot?

Pot Size Pot Diameter (Top) Pot Diameter (Base)
10 Litre 28.0cm 9.5″
15 Litre 33.0cm 10″
20 Litre 35.5cm 11″
25 Litre 38.5 cm 12″

Secondly, how big is a 10 inch pot? ft. 8.5 inch pot (22 cm) = 2 gallon (7.5L) = 0.3 cu. ft. 10 inch pot (25 cm) = 3 gallon (11L) = 0.46 cu.

Also to know is, how do you measure pot size?

Pots are usually measured by diameter. So, a 6″ pot will be 6 inches across, measured at the top of the pot. Of course the depth and shape of the pot can make a big difference as well.
