Cacti are a staple here in the Sonoran Desert we are surrounded by one of the largest cactus species, the native Saguaro Cactus. These massive cacti offer us a serene southwest style and define our landscape. We wouldn’t suggest growing a Saguaro in a cactus dish bowl, but what’s great about cacti is their range in sizes. There are plenty of smaller varieties that you can grow in cactus bowls both indoors and outdoors.
Nell has some beautiful Cactus Arrangements that she has created and adorn her kitchen’s open shelves. Now that we have you covered on making a cactus garden, it’s time to search for a cactus dish bowl. There are terracotta, clay pots, ceramic pots, and so much more regarding container materials.
When searching for cactus bowls, you want to keep a few things in mind. The first thing to know about cacti is that they don’t have an extensive root system, so you won’t need deep pots. Shallow planters are ideal. Think about how many cacti you want in your bowl, so choose the width accordingly.
Cacti are notoriously slow growers, so you won’t need a bowl that’s too big. Just like fleshy succulents, cactus quickly experience root rot if kept too wet. Choosing a plant pot with drainage holes is a way to lessen the chances of excess water sitting in the planter.
The good news is we have curated different sizes of cactus planter pots for you to choose from and most at a great price. Happy shopping!

This planter bowl feels optimal for 3-4 cacti, your own little indoor cactus garden. Be sure wherever you place your planter it’s in high light.

Glazed Ceramic Planter Bowl
This green lotus planter has a rich glaze and a smooth finish. We like the legs on this planter because they give a little bit of extra height to this bowl. Each planter has a hole on the bottom to allow water to drain through the soil so your plant stays healthy.

I’m a life-long gardener who still to this day gets giddy at the thought of a trip to one of the local nurseries. Yes, I actually studied landscape and environmental horticulture and the practical experience I have garnered through the years has served me well. Childhood memories of chicken manure “tea” still float through my olfactory senses to this day. I have always been an organic gardener and always will be. From the Earth … To the Earth. I was born and raised in rural, bucolic Litchfield County, Connecticut and now joyfully live a few blocks from the ocean in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.
