    1. A pack of food spikes for fertilizing every type of 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. Seriously, this product will change your life. It also has over 52,000 five-star ratings, which is really saying something!

    2. A set of poison- and pesticide-free sticky insect traps to get any infestation of flying insects under control. Reviewers swear that these traps completely wipe out common houseplant insects like fruit flies and fungus gnats, which is why over 8,900 reviewers give these traps five stars.

    3. A soil tester for making sure the moisture in your plant's soil is just right. You just plop it into the soil and look at the color-coded meter to see if it's dry, perfect, or too wet.

    4. A waterproof repotting mat so you don't put off repotting your houseplants because you lack outdoor space. Overgrown roots will result in unhappy plants, so it's important to make sure yours stay happy by keeping them in the proper planter size.

    5. 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.

    6. A self-watering, self-aerating planter to make sure your plants stay hydrated when you don't have time. Each pot can hold up to two weeks' worth of water, so you fill it up and then replace the water as needed.

    7. six-tier plant stand if you're short on space but not on houseplants. It fits up to six seven-inch pots and is completely made of bamboo. Bamboo is a great material for a plant stand because it's water resistant, and mold and insects don't love it they way they love woods.

    Promising review: "This is a must-have and beautiful plant stand to fit in any room corner. It’s lightweight and very easy to assemble. I placed it in the corner of my family room. It looks stylish and blends in with the room. This is my favorite corner of the house, it makes me feel calm and relaxed every time I go here." —Jessie L

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (originally $49.99+; available in four colors).

    8. A trio of 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!

    Promising review: "Super. Cute. This looks beautiful on the countertop and is a unique way to prop cuttings. The light refracts through the globes in a really lovely way too. My lil' pothos bbs love it so far." —S

    Get it from Amazon for $18.98 (originally $36.99). 

    9. A Plant Daddy hat so everyone knows what you're about. Plus, it'll help keep your head cool when you're outside taking care of all your plants.

    10. A pack of three rolling plant caddies to make sure you can move your heaviest plants without hurting yourself. Each caddy can hold up to 80 pounds, aka a realllllly big plant. 

    Promising review: "These are great for plants! I have three five-gallon geranium plants that don't like to get wet. For the last couple of years, I was lugging them around back and forth on the patio. What a relief for my back that I don't have to do that anymore. The trays are sturdy and deep enough that water doesn't come out all over the ground either. I like the wheel locking feature in case I want them to stay in place and the maneuverability of them is great." —Cheryl

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (originally $21.99; available in two colors).

    11. A bottle of organic plant food specifically formulated for houseplants. The lid doubles as a measuring cup, so no need to make a mess trying to measure the right amount.

    12. A humidifier, because a lot of houseplants are tropical and need moisture in the air to thrive. It's also on a timer, so you can set it and forget it.

    This humidifier also functions as an essential oil diffuser if that's your jam! The extra-large water tank can hold up to five liters to ensure up to 60 hours of continuous runtime. Humidifier upkeep can be a pain, but this one has a top-fill design that's quick and easy to refill and clean. You can even add water without removing the lid! The built-in advanced water level sensor will automatically turn off the machine when water is running low. The set-and-forget timer ranges from two to 12 hours depending on just how misty you want your plants to be!

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a second humidifier for my plant room. I appreciate the size of the water tank and the timer option. The blue light isn’t overly bright. If you’re looking for a second humidifier or looking for quality at a great price, I suggest this one! It was worth the purchase." —Tiffany Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    13. Or a continuous mist spray bottle to give specific plants the moisture they so crave and deserve. Each squeeze produces a stream of sustained mist that lasts a few seconds, so rest assured your plant bbs will get evenly saturated, no problem.

    Promising review: "Easily one of the most enjoyable misters I've used. I grow a lot of indoor seedlings, herbs, and other plants so a good mister is important for keeping them free of fungi and growing happily. This mister has done amazing work. It produces a very fine mist and you can generate a consistent, continuous stream of mist to layer over plants with ease. It's pretty sturdy and easy to refill." —Alex

    14. A handmade hanging plant shelf for your window if you simply don't have any more floor space for plants.

    15. A pair of microfiber dusting gloves to keep leaves happy and healthy by removing dust buildup. That thin layer of dust might not seem like much, but to your plant it's actually a big deal. You see, the dust covers the microscopic pores on the leaves, and that prevents the plant from getting the necessary oxygen it needs to create its food. If not removed, the plant will get frail and be more susceptible to disease.

    Promising review: "I bought these gloves to dust my plants with, and look at the difference between the before and after picture! These gloves fit well, are extremely soft and comfortable, and do a bang-up job against dust. Highly recommend. I ordered the four pack of gloves, which comes in a handy resealable storage bag."—Shannon T

    Get it from Amazon for $7.92+ (originally $8.98+; available in three glove sizes, five colors, and several pack sizes).

    16. A handmade planter with 3D details to add a big dose of cuteness to your interior. The neutral tones and shapes give these a cottagecore or boho style aesthetic.

    17. A bottle of organic Joyful Dirt concentrated plant food and fertilizer that you simply sprinkle onto soil or mix into water (for your watering can). After a few weeks, your plant will look healthier, have new leaves, and be in way better shape.

    18. A mini plant tool set if you're seeking an all-in-one solution for your home gardening needs. It comes with 11 pieces, all of which fit inside the included bucket shovel.

    This plant tool set comes with everything you need to work with soil including a shovel, spade rake, and a gardening potting mat. You also get a watering bottle, curved-tip tweezers, straight-tip tweezers, scissors, pruning scissors, a cleaning brush, and a plastic bucket shovel.

    Promising review: "I love this set! It's perfect for my home gardening. It's got everything I've needed so far and makes repotting and pruning so easy. Love that all the tools fit inside the dirt scooper, it doesn't take up a lot of space, and it's easy to tuck away. The mat that comes with it is so convenient to contain the mess when repotting/planting. Great for small indoor plants." —Hira Waheed

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    19. A piece of stained glass art to add a beautiful house "plant" to your home without the, ahem, maintenance.

    20. A set of three leafy-looking watering funnels that help you water the soil of very leafy plants. If you're not paying attention, using a watering can on a bushy plant can lead to all the water cascading off the leaves and onto your floor. These will make sure the water goes directly onto the soil.

    21. A pack of Miracle-Gro water storing crystals for making sure you don't over or underwater your plants. You mix it in with your regular soil and the crystals swell to absorb water and then release it later.

    22. A bottle of Miracle-Gro specially formulated indoor plant food to make sure your houseplants are in their best shape. It's safe to use on your edible plants, too!

    23. A jar of rooting hormone which will help plant cuttings grow roots. Everyone loves plant clippings and are hopeful they'll take root in water, but it can be harder than it seems. Stick the end of a cutting into the stuff before submerging it in water and watch an abundance of roots grow in record time.

    24. A very chic planter with house numbers on it so you can really up your home's curb appeal. The address numbers are actually magnetized, so you can put them where you want on the planter's surface.

    25. A pack of ringed plant stakes for your leggy plants that have a hard time standing up on their own. I'm looking at you, beautiful orchids and gorgeous tulips.

    26. A trio of self-watering cat globes to make sure your plants stay watered in the cutest way possible. Each globe provides up to three weeks of hydration.

    27. A roll of garden tape for your plants that love to climb but don't necessarily have the strongest stalks. This is especially true for tomato vines, because once the actual tomato fruit starts to grow the plants get really heavy and will likely fall without proper support.

    Your plants may seem small when you first start building your collection, but with the right care, they'll eventually grow much bigger. Larger plants may begin to lean to one side, but some garden tape can easily fix that.

    Promising review: "I've been using this to train my vines along their supports. The good thing is that it can be easily reused as the vines grow. The color helps it easily camouflage among my plants. Unlike twine or burlap strings, this flexible material does not restrict plant's growth!"Mehendi Das

    Get it from Amazon for $3.98+ (available in seven sizes and in two colors).

    28. A bag of Miracle-Gro potting soil that's specifically formulated to help houseplants thrive and, thanks to the combination of perlite, sphagnum, and peat moss, makes the soil less prone to gnats.

    29. A pair of garden scissors for pruning, deadheading, trimming, and shearing your plants. These are built spring-loaded so they automatically push open without you having to do the work, which will reduce hand fatigue and pain. Plus, over 37,600 reviews give these snips five stars!

    Promising review: "These are perfect! They get right into tiny or close spots and snip stems right off. They actually make deadheading flowers and plants fun because it's so easy. Plus they are small and light, so they don't hurt or tire my hands. I can easily open and close the lock with one hand so I can quickly snip, snip, snip away! **One month update** I still LOVE these clippers! I really don’t know how I got by without them before. I find it to be very relaxing to use these each evening to clean up my plants, I find myself almost disappointed if I can’t find anything to snip off lol. If you have flowers, herbs, or other plants you need these!" —Laurilee5

    30. And a small watering can if you are dealing with limited space. Some people forgo watering cans altogether and use bottles or glasses instead, but in my opinion it's better to have a designated tool to do so because you can fit a lot more water in this, meaning you don't have to keep running back to the sink to refill.
