    1. A sleek ceramic planter if your home's aesthetic is sophisticated minimalism. Seriously, this thing gives off major Japandi vibes, which is one of the biggest interior design trends of 2021.

    Reviewer's simple white planter has a snake plant in it

    Promising review: "At first I thought the price was a bit steep...but as soon as i received the planter I was thrilled with it. It comes with everything you need and it looks really nice and clean. It already has a drain hole...also comes with a plug if you wanna plug the hole up. Comes with filler so that the water can drain easier. The saucer is not attached to the planter but when placed underneath it looks as if it is and looks really modern and clean. Also came with a little net to put over the drain hole so that the dirt does not leak out into the saucer. Very cool product and I highly recommend it!!!" —Wojciech Kielar

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four sizes and seven colors).

    2. A set of poison- and pesticide-free sticky insect traps for getting any infestation of flying insects — like white flies, fungus gnats, thrips, and fruit flies — under control.

    Promising review: "At first I was hesitant. How could little sticky tabs on a stick control or eradicate my fungus gnat infestation? I had tried various pesticides, but those killed my plants too. So, in desperation, I tried these. They had good reviews and people said they worked wonders. Well, add my name to that list. These things worked fantastically! I bought these on June 28 after battling fungus gnats for months, the problem was only getting worse. It is now August 9th, and I can honestly say I haven't seen any gnats in my house flying around. I still keep the tabs out just in case, and occasionally I'll catch one of two, but for the most part they're gone and it's 100% due to these little tabs! And I didn't even use all 7 traps!" —Katheryn Camm

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    3. A mid-century modern inspired cement planter with leaves carved into it. Soooo many planters are earth tones (which is fine!), but it's nice to see something that will add a pop of color.

    Reviewer's pink planter with etched leaves has a leafy plant in it

    Promising review: "I was regretting spending a little more than my usual but I loved this design and color. I’m so happy I got it. I regret nothing. First the packaging was perfect! It screams quality. Once I’ve put my beloved little plant in its new awesome home what could go wrong? All is right with the world. A fine purchase indeed. It’s art." —Bonnie

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    4. A pack of food spikes for fertilizing every type of flowering and foliage houseplant you have. Each stick provides up to two months of food for your plants — eliminating the need to constantly fertilize and check the soil for nutrients.

    For best results, replace spikes every 30 days in spring and summer; replace every 60 days in winter and fall.

    Promising review: "I swear by these plant food spikes!!! The package says they are for indoor plants, but I actually use them for all of my outdoor plants, especially my herbs. I first tried these after planting some basil and other herbs that seemed to be taking an eternity to grow. I figured I'd give them a try since they were so inexpensive and wow!!!!! Within just a few days, my plants had grown more than double what they had grown in the previous several weeks!! One of my friends (who also enjoys gardening) came over to my house and was in awe of how big and healthy all of my herbs were. When I told her about these spikes, she went straight from my house to purchase some and had the exact same growth results." —GatorDO17

    5. An adorable 3D printed Bulbasaur planter so that you can show off your favorite Pokémon. The only shortcoming is your Bulbasaur won't evolve into an Ivysaur, but alas.

    6. A moisture meter to tell you if your plants need water. Simply insert the stick into the soil and boom! It'll tell you if the soil is dry, moist, or wet.

    Reviewer's moisture meter is in a snake plant pot

    Promising review: "Have you bought new plants and someone at the nursery or on the internet told you to water once a week or two weeks? Well, guess what, your plants don't dry out on a schedule like that all year round. It depends on its environment. How much light it's getting, how hot and humid its surrounding is, what kind of soil and pot it's in. If you're a total newbie or you're just really into plants even after a series of failures like I was, then you need this moisture meter! It will tell you exactly when your plants need water. It'll stop you from killing that seventh string of pearls, whose six predecessors you drowned bc you were just born to overwater. It will help you water that fiddle leaf fig you love even though it's so 2016 (It's OK. I have two." —MJ

    Reviewer's Socrates bust doubles as a planter

    Promising review: "Socrates is the perfect addition to our patio! Look and quality is good, but I wish it was a little bit heavier weight. Planted, it's a little top heavy and we live in a fairly windy area so sometimes I'm afraid he'll blow over. There is no drainage, but it would be easy enough to drill some holes in the top and base to create drainage if you need it and don't plan to move it inside for the colder months." —Lauren Svenstrup

    Get it from Amazon for $56.48+ (available in three styles).

    8. A denim apron with leather details designed specifically for gardening. Designed by ~plantfluencer~ Hilton Carter, it has leather pockets for holding heavy and sharp tools like shears and a ring for holding a towel or mister/spray bottle.

    9. A ceramic pot and stand combo for ~elevating~ your houseplant game. Most of the time you either buy the pot or the stand, but rarely are they sold as a set. This product feeds two birds with one scone.

    Reviewer's wooden stand and patterned pot holds a plant

    Promising review: "Love love love! It came with a plug so you don't have to worry about leakage. The quality was better than expected and perfect! I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. I searched and searched for a ceramic pot and was going to buy a separate stand for it...the fact that this pot comes WITH the stand was a major bonus and a perfect fit." —Hannah

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two sizes).

    Note: The listed measurements on the product page are in centimeters, not inches, so convert accordingly. 

    Minimum Design is a small business based in France making sustainable 3D wood printed planters since 2016.

    Promising review: "This planter came faster than I expected from France to NYC, so that was a plus (about two weeks). The plant pot is very light, feels like the weight of a paper, which I don’t mind and is very sturdy. The plant pot is also smaller than I had imagined even though I triple checked the measurements before purchasing, but it fits my asparagus fern just fine! Overall, this piece is definitely unique and worth it if you don’t want mass marketed plant pots from your local stores or giant retailers." —Marina

    Get it from Minimum Design on Etsy for $18.56+ (available in four sizes and with or without a drainage hole). 

    12. A trio of self-watering cat globes for those of us who are either chronic over-waterers or constantly traveling. Each bulb provides water for your plants for up to three weeks, depending on your climate.

    Promising review: "So glad I got these. I’m a chronic over-waterer and my plants were struggling. Now I don’t have to worry and I don’t even have to water. This is great for indoor plants that don’t actually need much water. And they’re super cute. I get lots of compliments on them!" —MB

    Get it from Amazon for $21.97+ (available in two patterns).

    13. A very tall planter to make a statement, and that statement is "I am the best plant parent around, and this is the pedestal upon which I put my plant baby." These can be used indoors or out.

    Reviewer's two tall white planters sit on a cabinet between a television

    Promising review: "We are very pleased with these planters. They are as described and are beautifully made. I stuffed mine with styrofoam and placed the planter inside, covered with moss. Even though they are lightweight, they are stable. Very happy with the purchase and would highly recommend." —gingerky

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available as a single or a pack of two).

    14. A pair of stainless-steel gardening shears with over 25,000 5-star reviews. Folks say they're lightweight and easy to use, and that the blades are super sharp — perfect for delicate deadheading.

    Reviewer's hand holds the orange and black shears

    Promising review: "I needed something sharp and small enough for dead heading smaller blooms but that would also do well with any size of bloom. These are my new favorite pair. They're sharp and easy to use. The small push lock that keeps the blades locked closed is very easy to unlock and relock. I would highly recommend these to any gardener professional or hobbyist like me." —JoJo

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in orange or blue).

    15. A cute plant mister that doubles as decor when not in use. Use it to clean leaves or provide a nice misting for tropical houseplants that love high humidity.,

    Promising review: "I love this cute little mister! It's great for our plants when we are cleaning the leaves and it also looks really good on our shelf! I saw some complaints about the spraying part being plastic instead of the metal that it looks like and yes, it is indeed plastic...BUT! The nice thing about it being plastic and not metal is that none of the parts are going to rust with all the sitting water that is constantly surrounding this thing. The plastic is very sturdy and not a super cheap, breakable plastic. Although, I can imagine that if this bottle is dropped on a hard surface you would risk both the glass bottle and the sprayer part breaking. Overall, great purchase! 5/5!" —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $10.88+ (available in nine colors).

    16. A tiny lil' shallow planter with a bamboo drainage tray for giving your succulents and cacti a perfect home. This is also a great product if you're propagating and it's time to move the leaves in water to fresh soil. It's shallow enough that the roots will grow without wasting space.

    Reviewer's planter holds five different succulents surrounded by white rocks

    Promising review: "An amazing little pot for my new succulent and cacti. Nice and shallow with a nice hole in the bottom for drainage. Perfect for succulents and cacti!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in two sizes).

    Reviewer's set of three white planters with gold stands sit in the corner of a living room next to a fireplace

    Promising review: "I am very pleased with these planters. The base is sturdy and the planters look ceramic but are lightweight. I had been searching for this style planter at the larger retail home decor stores but they were always so expensive! Then I found this listing that offered three sizes for less than one planter in my previous searches. Score! 100% recommend these. They look amazing." —Kim.84

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in black or white).

    18. A waterproof repotting mat to make sure you don't make a huge mess when repotting all your houseplants. Each corner snaps together, so there's no risk of dirt or leaves being pushed off the mat onto your tabletop or floor.

    Promising review: "The is a game changer for someone like me that has a lot of plants (indoor and outdoor!). I always struggled with where to repot my plants that would create the least amount of mess. I mix my own potting medium so it’s really messy. I bought this to contain the mess and it works wonderfully. It’s easy to snap together and made of a very sturdy material. It folds very compact for easy storage." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    19. A set of two white planters with gray and gold accents when you want to give your home a modern vibe. These pots don't have drainage holes, which means no more leaks all over your floors or tabletops.

    Reviewer's two planters in white and gold and white, gold, and grey have a plant in each

    Promising review: "I love how these planters look. Minimal, but with a cute contemporary look. I love how they look like a set, but not identical. The only tip I have is to make sure you are careful when repotting, and not to touch the sides with dirt on your hands. They are slightly porous, so it will show stains. I was able to wipe it off right away, but just an FYI." —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizes).

    20. A compact brush and dustpan for cleaning up the tiny messes that happen when you do houseplant maintenance. From trimming dead leaves to repotting plants, this small but mighty duo will help with clean up.,

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    21. A plant hanger and ceramic pot combo that's perfect for vine-y plants like strings of pearls or pothos. You can also put in faux plants if you just want to hang it and forget it.

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

    23. A small watering can that's perfect for homes with limited storage, because who has space for a giant metal 2-gallon watering can these days?

    Reviewer holds up the watering can for scale

    Promising review: "This is my ideal watering can for my small apartment full of small plants. The design is beautiful without being overwrought, it's compact enough to sit in a small space on a shelf, and the capacity is generous enough to water several plants before refilling. It also maneuvers easily under a small tap, like in a standard bathroom sink, for easier filling." —L. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in six colors).

    24. A vertical plant stand with a spot for six medium-sized plants. This is a great solution if you've got limited space but lots of houseplants.

    Reviewer's wood plant stand shows that the stand can easily fit six medium sized houseplants

    Promising review: "The shelf is amazing for the price!! Very cute, adds style and functionality to a room. It’s super easy to put together, took me 20 minutes or less and all supplies/tools are included. Only *possible* drawback is sturdiness, because it is a little tall and could get top heavy possibly. I opted to put smaller plants on top and heavier plants on bottom for that reason. Overall, 100% worth it, would buy again. Probably will." —chelsey sample

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99.

    25. A vintage-inspired patterned planter so that you can add some groovy vibes to your home. Reviewers rave about its look, saying it's well made and looks great.

    Reviewer's grey and white planter has a groovy pattern

    Promising review: "The pot I received is very nice. Yes, there are slight inconsistencies but to me it looks very authentic and handmade, almost like a  handmade pot. The pot is super sturdy and as another reviewer mentioned, it seems much bigger in person. I really like that this pot was designed with a removable drainage hole. You can water the plant, and when the water has drained out simply wipe off the bottom and reinsert the drain plug and place it back on the counter — unlike other pots where you may need to wait hours for the bottom to fully dry. I'm very happy with my purchase." —Lori Colt

    Get it from Amazon for $15.83+ (available in two sizes and five colors).

    26. A trio of of bulb vases that are super versatile. Can it be a vase? Check. Can you use it for plant propagating? Uh huh. Is it just really cool looking decor? Also yes!

    Reviewer's trio of glass bulbs have plant stems propagating in them

    Promising review: "This is the cutest thing and definitely easy to assemble and display. I wanted something to hold the plants I am propagating while also acting as decor.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    27. A set of three ceramic planters with a marble glaze, because real marble would be 10x more expensive. The tiny size is perfect for succulents and cacti.

    Reviewer's three small planters with wooden saucers hold succulents and a cactus

    Promising review: "These little planters were a great buy, they came well packaged and in perfect condition. The design is really cute and looks marble-y. They do have an opening for drainage and I loved that they came with the wooden saucer. Pay attention to the dimensions (they are really tiny, perfect for tiny succulents or seedlings)." —Laur

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in grey or multicolor).

    28. A woven rope basket that reviewers swear is the best planter ever. And since it has handles, you can easily pick it up and move it about without risking spillage.

    Reviewer's white and light grey cotton rope planter holds a plant

    Promising review: "This is an excellent way to switch up how you pot plants and show them around the house. Really like switching it up a bit. Great quality, very well made, does not fit a 12" pot, but a 10" works just fine. Best with tall plants as the pot does sit down a bit in the basket." —LV.Sunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    29. A disco ball hanging planter to give your room major nightclub energy. Because why pay money to go to the club when your home IS the club?!?

    30. A pack of two white hanging planters with black hardware that are perfect for low maintenance or faux plants.

    Reviewer's three black and white handing planters sit above a window in a kitchen

    Promising review: "I like these a lot. I have a cat that loves to munch on my plants, so these get plants up out of his reach. They are smaller than I imagined so that means more frequent watering. They work well with the look I am going for despite the size." —Sunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $14.74+ (available as a single or pack of three and three colors).

    31. A set of three concrete succulent planters with faces on them. Can you imagine playing hairdresser with the right plants? Like a fern or ivy?

    Reviewer's three head-shaped planters in white, terracotta, and grey hold plants

    Promising review: "These look fantastic on my shelf. They are solid and heavy in the hand and the faces are subtle but well defined. They were packaged well so there was no chips or bare spots in the color or texture. They also have a no slid bottom which is always a plus when you have kids that bump into everything and cats that are sneaky." —K

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (set of three).
