There are lots of options for indoor planters and while I’m on the hunt for new tabletop planters, I want to share some of my favs that I’ve found with you.
For the past few months, I’ve been adding more greenery to my indoor space: Pothos, Monstera deliciosa, String Of Pearls, and a Snake Plant are some of my new roommates. Finding the ideal tabletop planters is harder than I thought.
I love all of my greenery but have also ended up with the most random collection of ugly grow pots. So, I decided to create this round-up of decorative tabletop planters for houseplants to motivate myself, and hopefully you, to add a bit of pizazz to your home decor.
Things to keep in mind:
You want to pay special attention to the material and sizes so the grow pot or root ball nestles comfortably inside. I like to keep an eye out for tabletop planters with drainage holes, this is really important in helping to avoid root rot.
It’s easier to find super small ones that fit succulents rather than a small/medium one that would fit a 6 or 8″ grow pot, also leaving some room for growth.
A decorative pot is a key factor when you want to display your plants – it’s like dressing them up. You also want to make sure the planters play along nicely with your home’s decor. I happen to be a fan of modern planters.
If you’re going to be moving your plants around, then be sure to consider some of the attractive lightweight plastic options now on the market.
The planters shown below would fit comfortably and look fabulous on a table, credenza, buffet or shelf.
