The Best Pots and Planters on Amazon for Your New Amazon Plant

Or for any florae in your home.

Various planters in a window.

Strategist writer David Notis was understandably skeptical before ordering a fiddle-leaf fig from the new Amazon Plants Store, writing that “the idea of something as complex (in the multicellular sense) and delicate as a plant being processed through Amazon’s vast shipping network in a cardboard box makes me a little uncomfortable.” But when his plant arrived alive and unblemished, Notis was won over, along with the rest of us. For total one-stop shopping, we unearthed the best pots, planters, and vases on Amazon for our new houseplants.
