9 cute plant pots
You say, cute plant pot, I say, how about giant ice cream cone? Right?! I thought that might do it. This one comes from Urban Outfitters' giant objects collection, which is inspired by iconic artists like Jeff Koons who use oversized proportions in their work. So, it’s not just a plant pot — it's art — and I’m obsessed.
This ain’t no ordinary plant pot. Nope, this beauty has been handcrafted and hand-painted in Brooklyn, New York, and so each one is completely unique. The double-stacked design gives your plant-scape height, and it even has concealed drainage holes to make sure your plants don’t get a soggy bottom.

A wild pick
I know we’re not supposed to pick favorites, but I think I found mine. This cool cat is hanging from the ceiling without a care in the world and that’s the kind of energy I need. String this one up by a curtain pole, above your shower, or on the side of a tall piece of furniture for an injection of character.
Line drawings never go out of style and while there are a lot of different versions out there, the rich tone of this sapphire blue combined with a glazed finish really makes this plant pot stand out.

What kind of pots are best for indoor plants?
Ceramic and clay pots like terracotta are often good options for most indoor plants. This gives houseplants a chance to drain excess water and avoids root rot. Plants that prefer moist soil may do okay in plastic, glazed, and hole-less pots.
Do indoor planters need drainage holes?
It depends on the type of plants you have, their watering preferences, and how moist they like their soil. In many cases, indoor planters with drainage holes are useful to prevent diseases in the roots (like root rot). Just be sure to have a tray beneath to catch drips!
