We love plants here at the Strategist. We’ve written about low-light plants, off-the-radar indoor plants, status plants, pet-safe plants and more. (Much more.) The right plant can go a long way toward transforming an interior space, but not if you leave it in the plastic nursery pot many are sold in at plant stores — or shipped to your door if you order your plant online. Leaving plants in those plastic pots isn’t as much a disaster as it is a missed opportunity. A simple ceramic pot can make that big bird-of-paradise or monstera look less like an impulse purchase on your way out of Ikea and more like a thoughtful addition to your living room décor. And if you happen to have purchased a rare or exotic plant — say, one that has been compared to a Hermès handbag — you’ll obviously want to show it off in style.
If you’re nervous about repotting, don’t worry: You can probably leave your plant in that plastic pot for now; just get a slightly larger decorative pot and slip the plastic pot inside as a liner. (You’ll need to repot it eventually once it grows enough, but we can worry about that later.) As a bonus, this makes watering even easier because you don’t need to worry about drainage and you can easily do everything in the sink if you want.
If you want to upgrade your indoor greenery (and zhuzh up your décor at the same time), all you need is the right pot or planter. To save you some time, we scoured Amazon to find 40 of the best options for any sort of plant, including trios of tiny pots for a windowsill succulent garden; colorful and patterned options that work on home-office desks, coffee tables, and end tables; stands for the crown jewel of your plant collection; and hanging planters, outdoor planters, and vases.
Classic Wood Burning Stove At first glance, this planter might look like delicate cane, but it’s actually ceramic, making it both trendy and sturdy. It’s the perfect size for a window sill but would also add a nice touch to a home-office desk.
