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.
These tiny, marble pots include bamboo trays to capture water and soil leakage. Fill the pastel set with a variety of succulents.
Also including bamboo trays, these ceramic mini-pots would be right at home at an all-day café.
Pull together a cluster of succulents in this round planter for an easy and understated centerpiece.
For slightly medium-size plants, like this royal-purple bougainvillea, go with one of these clean-lined ceramic planters with delicate gold accents.
A playful scalloped-edge keeps this bright white pot from feeling plain. It’s the perfect blank canvas for displaying a favorite plant.
If you prefer bright colors, this glazed coral pot will pop in any space. Let it be the star with a comparatively muted, but undeniably elegant, peace lily.
This streamlined white-and-gold planter adds unfussy style to an end table or nightstand. Try it with a petite cactus.
Display all three of these white-and-black vases on a windowsill together, or scatter them throughout a room or apartment for a unifying theme.
Hanging plants naturally feel bohemian, and these earthy, stone hanging planters complete the look. Let some English ivy hang down from the pot.
Ceramic meets macramé in this quintessentially boho minimalist planter.
It also comes in a smaller version that could easily be the focal point of your triangular walnut coffee table.
Of course there’s also an all-black version for the color-averse.
On the softer side of the style spectrum, try this large woven basket as a planter for the fiddle-leaf fig or rubber plant.
A bit reminiscent of a Grecian urn, this ceramic planter is sturdy enough for an outdoor space, if you’re lucky enough to have one.
For the rest of us, there’s this smaller vase in a similar style that would easily accommodate a slim-stemmed orchid.
Another outdoor option, this planter has rubber feet to prevent staining outdoor surfaces, and a removable drain plug for excess water.
While it’s small enough to sit on a windowsill or desk, this pot has room for a larger plant, like a split-leaf philodendron thanks to its wide-mouth opening.
Turquoise-swirled glass with golden flecks, this vase is worth displaying on its own—or with a hydrangea shrub in a complimentary shade of blue.
