    Promising review: "Exactly as pictured! I wanted a planter that was on the smaller side, but was still an elevated planter-in-a-stand variety. On a practical side, the planter stays level in the frame, even when slightly jostled. I put a couple of succulents in it, an Echeveria, and one of the creeping 'string of' varieties." —NB

    Get it from Amazon for $18.25+ (available in packs of 1–3 and four colors).

    2. A weather- and rust-resistant Veradek Pure Series plastic planter box with drainage holes that's tough enough to withstand the elements all year round while maintaining its overall elegance.

    Promising review: "Great design and quality. The slight flare is very distinctive and the push-out plugs on the bottom are handy for drainage. Hopefully, it will last many years. It seems well-constructed." —John from West Hollywood, CA

    Get it from Wayfair for $94.32 (originally $109.99).

    3. An indoor/outdoor 3D printed geometric planter made from PLA plastic, which means this vegetable-based material is a fully biodegradable.

    HD3D Printing / Etsy

    HD3D Printing is an Etsy shop established in 2019 based in Huddersfield, United Kingdom that specializes in 3D-printed pots, planets, and stands.

    Promising review: "I love my pot it's perfect and Austyn was really nice, answered all my questions pretty fast and didn't mind when I made a special request to get the pot in turquoise instead of black and white. I will definitely be ordering from here again." —Livi

    Get it from HD3D Printing on Etsy for $9.17+ (available in three colors and three sizes).

    4. A seven-pocket X Xben vertical wall hanging planter, because sometimes you just need your plants to (ahem) grow up be it fences, porches, and balconies or covering an entire wall space., Amazon

    Promising review: "What's so great about this is we can move it anywhere we wanted. Even though they said it’s water leak proof but still be careful not to overflow it. Always water the top pocket first and let the water goes down to second, third, won’t see it right away because it’s very slow drip but it’s manageable. If you use it indoors, I think it’s best for flowers or succulents because they require a very minimum amount of water so the risk is low to none." —Sharkbytes

    Get it from Amazon for $12.89.

    5. A durable Tabor Tools round plastic planter, which won't chip, crack or discolor like outdoor clay pots do. Or bring it indoors for "a touch of minimalist elegance."

    A round planter with a burgundy red finish

    Promising review: "Beautiful pot. The color is great, it's subtle and does not steal the show from the plant. Elevated inside at the base so you don't need to bother with stones. Sturdy. Looks great. Does not look like plastic, it looks like a more expensive pot." —Stacey J. Murphy

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in three colors).

    6. A set of four Greenaholics ceramic planters with connected saucers, so you'll know when you're over-watering your succulents and won't leave water stains all over your desk, shelves, or tabletops.

    Four white planters with different lined exterior textures and drain basins

    Promising review: "The patterns are all very distinct and pretty. I love that these are chic and minimalist but not boring, so the plant can be the star but the pot adds a little extra pop. And I freaking love that there’s a built-in saucer with a few drainage holes. I used to kill all my succulents before I learned you’re supposed to flood them until water drains out, and I love that I can see when to stop watering without having to lift up the pot." —Kat Lewin

    Get it from Amazon for $30.90.

    7. A rustic metal planter whose light color will deepen over time (when left outside to the elements) to a brown/burnt orange hue. Plus an interior grate will allow for proper drainage.

    Prairie Dance Studio / Etsy

    Promising review: "The planter is beautiful and is perfect as a focal point in my yard where plants would not grow—- beautiful patina and excellent quality of product and packaging to ship and not get damaged." —Martha

    Get it from Prairie Dance Studio on Etsy for $116.95+ (available in two sizes).

    8. A indoor/outdoor Stone & Beam mid-century, two-toned planter made with a reactive glaze so every pot is unique, just like the plants and flowers growing inside it.

    Two two-toned planters, one in moss and one in coral

    Promising review: "It is definitely a little smaller than I anticipated (medium size, I could have definitely sized up) but that would be for my lack of busting out an actual measuring tape. It's a great material, the design printing on the ceramic is vivid and clean not messy at all, and the coral color is not too bright but has the perfect "pop" to it! The medium works, but I will definitely get the large also and make them a group! The mint is beautiful also and may end up out by my pool!" —Tiffany Paradise

    Get it from Amazon for $42.48+ (available in two sizes and six colors).

    9. A extra-large, fair-trade banana tree bark planter that's handmade by a small cooperative of women in Kenya in order to support themselves and their families during dry seasons.

    Get it from The Basket Room on Etsy for $94.76.

    10. A D'vine Dev ceramic planter pot for all the neat (plant) freaks out there with a drainage saucer for stopping spills, a mesh net to prevent falling soil, and a scratchpad to keep tabletops undamaged.

    Two matte white planters with speckled gray bases

    Promising review: "If you do your research you'll learn that a plant needs to have drainage in order to thrive. Too many planters on the market don't have a drainage hole. I was pleased to find this planter that has a drainage hole and a built-in saucer with a very sleek and modern design. Well done!" —I. Cordak

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in two sizes and seven colors).

    11. An eco-friendly, 3D printed Polyface planter made from plant-based PLA plastic that manages to straddle the line between "What an interesting conversation piece!" and "Is that creepy many-faced flower pot watching me?"

    Three different white planters featuring the repeated pattern of a human face
    Printerror / Etsy

    Printerror (previously Impossible 3D Printed Products) is an Etsy shop established in 2015 and based in Austin, TX that creates original, 3D-printed planters, bowls, statues, and sculptures.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these planters! I bought a large one for my SIL's birthday, but couldn't resist getting myself a smaller one. They are so unique, artistic, and really give my patio garden some major personality. The seller is awesome, shipped quickly, and it came well packaged with a personalized note. I couldn't be happier and can't wait to buy more from him." —Aimee Stephenson

    Get it from Printerror on Etsy for $31.50+ (available in three sizes and three colors).

    12. A Rivet mid-century ceramic planter with an iron stand, so you've got the option of putting your pot flat on the floor or elevated from wherever you place it.

    Three different sized black planters on black stands

    Promising review: "I've been obsessed with a planter in this Mid-Century Modern design. They can be quite pricey so I was skeptical when I ordered this but WOW! It's exceptional. The base is made of sturdy metal and the planter is ceramic and well crafted. It says it's intended for outdoor use (which was my plan) but it's so nice I haven't had the heart to put it outside. It's just so pretty. It may be time to invest in a new indoor plant just for my lovely new planter. I'd definitely recommend it." —Sharon Reaves

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99+ (available in three sizes and seven colors).

    13. A weather- and rust-resistant Veradek metallic series galvanized powder-coated steel planter box with styrofoam insulation to make sure things don't get too hot or too cold for your precious plants.

    A tall, white rectangular outdoor planter

    Promising review: "Absolutely gorgeous! The tall slim modern design is perfect and the weight is substantial enough to stay sturdily in place but not impossible to move (with two people). I love love love it!! The company claims it will not rust, so that makes it even better." —GoRays from Tierra Verde, FL

    Get it from Wayfair for $227.49 (originally $299.99).

    14. A set of two, indoor/outdoor, weather- and fade-resistant La Jolie Muse planters with four drainage holes so all that tall greenery can reach impressive new heights.


    Promising review: "I was looking for something to really update my patio, and was so glad to find these. These really do have the look and texture of stone, ( but are lightweight, so can easily be picked up and moved), and are so classy looking. One of the features that really drew me to these, is that they have raised drain holes. I had tall planters, on my patio before, that didn't have drain holes, and every time it rained, they filled with water, which got rancid, and attracted mosquitoes, and now I won't have that problem. I am so pleased." —Tallgal

    Get it from Amazon for $98 (available in three colors).

    15. An Memphis design-inspired small planter made from colored cement, which has nothing to do with the city in Tennessee but the similarly-named Italian art group from the 1980s.

    Kailochic / Etsy

    Kailochic is an Etsy shop established in 2008 and based in Austin, TX that produces colorful accessories for your home (and self) like planters, magnets, pillows, bags, and more.

    Promising review: "Super cute, great quality, and came really quickly! It is tiny, but perfect for a succulent or as a holder for something else!" —Catherine Lindberg

    Get it from Kailochic on Etsy for $17.49 (available in six colors).

    16. A seam-welded (so it's water-tight), scratch-resistant, stainless-steel Veradek Geo trough planter, because sometimes one really long pot does the job (and looks) better than a bunch of small ones., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are beautiful. Modern, simple, very sturdy, absolutely leak-proof. Exactly as described. One of the review categories is 'lightweight.' They're steel and a nice thick gauge, so they are certainly not lightweight, but rather are appropriately heavy. The brushed finish is perfect. Shipped in sturdy boxes with fitted styrofoam so they arrived in perfect condition." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two sizes).

    17. A hand-poured concrete skull planter with (or without) drainage, so, much like our own, no two skulls are completely alike. It's also worth noting that each one is "skull-pted to perfection!"

    Three different concrete skill planters, one in concrete and gold speckle, one in black speckle, and one in copper
    The Concrete Letter / Etsy

    The Concrete Letter is an Etsy shop established in 2019 based in Philadelphia, PA that creates hand made concrete decor from planters to jewelry.

    Promising review: "Absolutely beautiful! Amazing work, good size, and unique. I loved it online and it was even more amazing when I saw it in-person. Stunning with the copper foil accents." —Laura Pagel

    Get it from The Concrete Letter on Etsy for $17+ (available in ten styles).

    18. A six-pack of Winner Outfitters fabric pots with handles that might actually help your plants go quicker by letting in more oxygen, letting out more excess water, and preventing roots from circling.

    Promising review: "Bought this six-pack along with few other sizes for my greenhouse plants. I love the black to keep the soil warm and the fabric for drainage. These pots are great! The handles make them easy to carry and move, room enough for larger plants. This is the first season I'm using them, I plan on getting a few more years out of them before recycling. The water seeps out of these perfectly, no overwatering worries. The price is great and again, the color is just perfect for keeping the soil warm throughout the colder months." —F.M. Emmett

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four sizes).

    19. A Best Choice Products mobile raised metal planter to easily move your greenery in case you're not happy with the sun it is or isn't getting. Hanging hooks and a storage shelf leave room for supplies or more plants!

    A black metal cart with two wheels, a ventilated storage shelf, and a bed full of plants

    Promising review: "No more back-breaking or bending! This planter garden was the perfect fit for what I wanted. My lettuce and peppers look wonderful in the planter. No worries about rabbits! Very easy to maneuver and am very happy with the storage on the bottom. Overall, would definitely purchase again." —Tom W.

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    20. A weather-resistant, lightweight plastic Adams Manufacturing deluxe garden planter for holding up to 150 pounds of plantlife while allowing you to take it easy on your back and knees.

    An earth brown planter with a bottom shelf

    Promising review: "These are awesome!!! I have issues bending over but I love to garden! I got three of these and I have pepper plants, herbs, and even tomatoes in them and they are thriving! They are sturdily made and are deep and long enough for about six to eight tomato plants. It has totally changed the way I garden! My husband was skeptical but we are about to eat our first tomato and now he is a believer! Fantastic product!" —Jenifer Jacobs

    Get it from Amazon for $54.14+ (available in two colors).

    21. A large, indoor/outdoor handmade (so each one is slightly different), concrete planter with a water-repellent seal that's as beautiful as it is simple. Who knew concrete could be so smooth?
