Best Overall

A fantastic name in pots and planters is Hyde. Available at The Sill, these versatile planters have a minimalist feel. These earthenware planters are available in a variety of sizes and colors starting at $34.

We love the built-in cachepot and drainage holes that prevents excess water from pooling around the roots. These pots are beautiful and functional and a must have for anyone working on repotting.

Best Terracotta

Amazon has some great deals for those looking for terracotta indoor planters. Made by D’vine, this set of three small terracotta pots retails for around $30. The pots have drainage holes and sit on a saucer to catch water that drains out of your houseplants. These are a favorite of our staff for small plants that can fit in a tight space like a windowsill.

Many types of plants thrive in terracotta including aloe, fiddle leaf fig, snake plant, and succulents that benefit from moisture control.

Best Tall

Depending on the type of plant you have and where you want to display it, sometimes a tall pot is exactly what you are looking for. Many people lean toward tall planters for outdoor use, but they’re also good for tall, top-heavy plants, like mature fiddle leaf figs.

This one from Target measures 12 inches in diameter and is 20 inches high. Made of stone and recycled resin, it is durable enough for indoor or outdoor use. The drainage hole has a plug if you want to use it inside without a saucer. Available for just over $60, the Algreen Acerra Yard and Patio Vase is a steal.
