    This pot is just one of the things that'll help you showcase your plants, and even includes a basic bamboo tray to catch any water and dirt, helping to keep your space clean.

    Promising review: "I bought the 12-pack of mini succulents at Amazon. They were drying out way too quickly in the tiny plastic pot they came in.  I bought this to replant the pots into it. Not only does it look so much better, but the extra dirt (I used a succulent potting mix) has also made a difference in how often I have to water them less now. I would say if you have purchased the 12- or 20-pack of mini succulents here, they will fit perfectly into these planters." —gary assassin

    2. A dinosaur-shaped pot that makes for a dino-mite talking piece. Next time your friends come over, it'll be hard not to show off this adorable planter.

    Promising review: "I love these little pots! They add such an elegant chic touch to my window sill. I read some people received pots that were printed crooked but mine were perfect.
