15 of the best indoor plant pots
From woven baskets and up-cycled coffee sacks, to hanging pots and glass cacti and succulent terrariums, browse our selection of indoor decorative plant pots for your home, below.
Patch Clay Hanging Pot
Opting for a hanging pot is a simple way to save surface space or add a new dimension to your plant displays. These pots are made from durable fibre clay and come in two sizes, in a choice of light or dark shades of grey. As it’s suspended with rope, dangling plants like Epipremnum aureum (Devil’s Ivy) work particularly well in this style of pot.
Raja Black & Natural Seagrass Belly Basket
This multi-functional basket looks great filled with a leafy green plant (just keep it in its pot when you pop it in). The basket is made from natural seagrass and, being handmade, each one is unique. It’s available in three sizes and has handles to help you manoeuvre it into the perfect spot.
NCYP Handmade Pentagon Glass Geometric Terrarium
This open glass terrarium is an ideal way to show off your indoor plants. The modern, geometric design is a stylish choice and can happily house fern, moss, succulents and cacti. The edging is available in black (pictured), gold copper and silver and also doubles as a candle or tea-light holder.
Set of Three Woven Plant Pots
These three baskets are woven by hand from braided Jute rope. There’s also an inner PVC liner to prevent any leaks. The plant pots come in three sizes so you can group them together or display them in separate rooms. The smallest one would particularly suit a miniature succulent.
Salo Set of Two Hand-Painted Planters
Like your pots to be quirky? These stoneware planters from MADE are painted by hand in Portugal and have a speckled finish. They’re also part of a wider “Salo” collection if you’re looking to coordinate them with any dinnerware or art.
Satsumas Plant Stand with Five Plant Pots
Another novel option: this IKEA ladder style plant stand supports five pots. You can fill each one with a different houseplant or include other objects, so the structure doubles up as storage. The vertical stand is also a space-saving solution, as you can display plants without using up limited floor or counter space.
This large cachepot is made from metal with an all-over hammered effect for a unique texture. It’s available in a stylish copper finish (as pictured) as well as in gold, depending on what works best for your home décor. A true statement piece.
Echo Free-Standing Oval Plant Stand
This elongated oval plant stand will house a selection of plants. The black pot is made from iron and lifts out of the metallic gold stand, so it can be easily wiped clean when needed.
Dursley Resin Plant Pot
Made from resin, this tall speckled pot is a great way to show off a large indoor plant. The grey pot has an egg-shell blue tinge and is set on a detachable wooden stand, which can be removed depending on whether you prefer to have it elevated or set down flat.
Macrame Plant Hanger
Woven rope “macramé” plant hangers have become a popular interior trend, particularly on social media sites such as Instagram. Slot your plant into the hanger and use the loop to suspend it. This hanger is made by an independent seller on Etsy and there are eight other colour options you can choose from, too.
Sitting Plant Pot
This kooky plant pot has a sweet smiling face, plus arms and legs to look like it’s sitting perched on the edge of a shelf or surface. The plant pot is handmade and is available in six different colour choices. It’s perfect for holding cacti and succulents.
Recycled Hessian Sack Plant Holders
These planters are made from recycled hessian coffee sacks, meaning they’re both eco-friendly and bang on the up-cycling trend. Each planter is handmade and there are three different sizes to choose from.
NCYP Hanging Round Ceramic Flower Pot
This white ceramic planter is designed to hang indoors and show off your plants in an understated, modern style. With a flat base, you also have the option to display the pot on a surface instead. There are drainage holes to prevent excess watering gathering in the bottom.
