Self-Watering Pots by Nils Plöjel

Kaenjusai Watering Can

Will a pretty watering can make your houseplants happy? Probably, but it will be because you’re happy watering them with the Kaenjusai Watering Can by designer Keita Suzuki. See the matching angle of the handle and spout? That will give you a precise “point-and-pour control” to ensure less spillage. A walnut handle compliments the copper body.

GrowOya Watering Vessel

Did you know that surface watering is inefficient? Plants do best when they get water right at their roots. That’s just where the GrowOya aims, as it’s a terracotta vessel that’s buried mostly underground. Fill it every few days and water will naturally seep into the soil so roots can take just the right amount. You’ll be saving water and time… score!

Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams

Do you love these Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams because their own saucers are integrated into the design or because they remind you of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’s legs? In either case, they’re excellent options for holding your green, leafy friends, as they’ll catch extra water and dirt without being completely (and often horribly) obvious like the alternatives.

Flower Constellations

Here’s another trick to flower arranging: use the brass Flower Constellation disk. Stretch out the disk (in your favorite Zodiac design, of course) so that it rests snugly in whichever glass or vase you have handy, and then pop in single flowers from the supermarket, florist, or nearest field. You’ll find that it’s easy to create a “voluminous” arrangement thanks to the openings in each disk.

Veritable® Smart Indoor Garden

A smart, indoor garden? Sure, sign me up. Originally a Kickstarter project, the Veritable® Smart Indoor Garden is designed to help you grow herbs and small vegetables effortlessly, all year round. While it has a small footprint (easy to fit in a kitchen, don’t you know), four different types of plants can grow together at their optimal rate. The lamps’ specific LED technology ensures quick growth; they also can be set to automatically adjust brightness based on ambient natural light. And, if that’s not enough, you’ll see the light softly pulsating when it’s time to add more water.

Cantaro Pots

Now, these are some pretty plant pots. The burnished clay shapes with black steel bases look like sculptural art, and, for good reason: each one takes three weeks to complete. All Cantaro pots are made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment by master artisans in Jalisco, Mexico. Note that over time, the finish will fade, giving it a softer, lighter hue.

Plant Animals

Okay, so not everyone wants to add accessories to their plants, but these Plant Animals are kind of cute. Just attach each animal by folding the hands into shape around the branches or tendrils of your plant. As they’re made from brass, they’ll catch the light every now and then and remind you of your exotic “pet” that requires no care at all (you will have to keep your plant alive, though).

Pidestall Planters

Normally planters this nice would have a cringe-inducing price tag, but the Pidestall Planters seem completely affordable when you spend a little time appreciating their bent metal legs and clean, cylindrical forms. Perfect for indoor or outdoor use, you have your pick of two sizes- Blue/short and Red/tall. It’s time to bring some plants indoors anyways, so you’ve got a reason to add one (or two) of them to your favorite room in the house.

Large Vayu Floor Planter

Plant nerds, check out this planter from Light & Ladder. Do you love it? I sure do (though I don’t like the price). It’s a sculptural take on the planter vessel, suitable for indoors or outside. It’s going to catch the eye from every angle, thanks to its stepped surface, and it’ll make your plant feel like a thousand bucks.
