Here are a few of the great reviews…

I bought a couple of these planters to be used as a temporary solution for my houseplants. They actually look nice and are very cost effective. I may just keep my plants in these planters for the long term. The gray goes well with my decor!


For the size of these pots the prize is amazing. They are plastic but it’s a matte finish and it doesn’t look cheap. I love them. They aren’t super tall (deep) so if you have a plant with a tall rootball, plan ahead.

    Any advice on plants to put in here that are easy to take care of? Would love some but no green thumb- thank you!!!

    • Stef81

      Spider plant, snake plant, peperomia are all easy plants to care for. A little light and a little water once a week or so!

    • Melanie

      Pothos grow well indoors and are wonderful air cleaners. They are also wonderfully difficult to kill.

  2. Karina

    The snake plant pictured above in the dark grey planter has grown well inside my home. I water it once a week and it has tripled in size since I bought it.

    • Jules

      How much water? I managed to kill mine! 🤦‍♀️

  3. Tammy

    Pothos is also a very easy plant to grow. They are pretty hard to kill and easy to propagate.

  4. Nicole

    Thank you! This will be great for the plant I purchased from the home depot deal the other day.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Perfect! You’re very welcome, Nicole!

    What does it mean “self watering?” How does that work?

    • peretz12

      I believe it means that there’s basically a drainage bowl the pot sits in (blends in with the pot) where the excess water drains to and the plants can take up water from there with their roots. So yeah you’d still have to water… but you could get away with less frequently.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        That is correct, peretz12! Thanks so much for explaining it so well!

  6. Jen

    Keep in mind, that if you have pets, always check to make sure that the plants you choose for your home or pet safe.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Great advice, Jen!

  7. peretz12

    It shows that it’s available in my store. Just no pick up orders. Bummer. Guess I’ll have to go inside and check

  8. JulietteY

    These are great, I have a few! Best price around for colorful, cute planters. They have a few other similar priced planters. I did buy some of those because they ran out of some sizes /colors on this one. Also a good buy.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you for the recommendation, JulietteY!

    Do succulents work well with this type of pot or not because they require less watering?

    • Ella

      This type of container will only work as “self watering” with certain soils and deeper roots so that the soil “wicks” the water in the bottom to the roots. Succulents are usually best planted in a very well drained soil and they have shallow roots- so you could still use these pots, but you wouldn’t want to keep much water in the bottom. These would work best as a self draining pot letting the excess water drain to the bottom to keep moisture from sitting on the roots and causing root rot. They’re so cute that I’m going to give a couple of these pots a go for a few of my succulent cuttings.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Well said, Ella! And I agree that these are not the right type of pot for succulents and they like much drier conditions.

  10. Chris

    Do you still water from the top of the soil? The picture on the planter shows water being poured in the hole at the bottom.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I own these and still water from the top.
