The Best Planter Sources

Now that I’ve unmasked my true crazy plant lady self over on Instagram, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about where I get pots for my houseplants. So naturally, a roundup is in order!

Plants have been part of my life since I was a kid (seriously, once I saved my allowance to buy a ficus tree for my bedroom). So, I’ve been collecting planters for a while. Half the fun of keeping plants is curating the pots they live in, right? Well, that and when they grow huge new leaves!

Here are some of my favorite planters available for purchase now (some of which I recently procured)…

Below is a comprehensive list of allllll my favorite houseplant pot sources. The planters these stores carry usually change seasonally, so you can revisit every so often to see what’s new.

local garden shops
eBay (for vintage planters)
Etsy (for vintage and handmade planters)
Crate and Barrel
West Elm
Urban Outfitters
Home Depot

If you have access to a community ceramics studio, making your own pots is the best way to get exactly what you’re looking for!

I’ll add more as I think of them. Happy planting! :)

    Awesome post! I picked up some clearance plants from Lowe’s recently and now they need pretty new homes, of course. :) I was actually just scouring amazon a couple days ago for planters and saw those pots! I love the texture on the blue one. Can’t wait to check out your other sources for pots.
