    vase flower pot or plant pot?

    There's a glass walled room in a house for keeping pots of some beautiful plants, not necessarily flowers.
    What should I call this room?

    Maybe you could call it a plant room. Maybe you could call the pots plant pots. (Although flower pots is more common.)

    Vases are for displaying cut flowers. Click here to see images.

    Change the headword to see plant pots, which is the more common word in BE for pots containing living plants or flowers growing in compost.

    If it's not joined to the house, you can call it a greenhouse/glasshouse.
