Where do you get your favorite cover pots?
Hey all! I have been searching high and low for cheap cover pots. I have a ton of plants in 3" and 4" nursery pots and I keep having to stick them in plastic cups to hang them up or when I water and I'm over it. I have one white, plastic cover pots I got on who knows what plant who knows how long ago but it seems like they don't exist anywhere.

I have Amazon and Google searched so many times but everything has drainage. While I could plug it up I figured I would ask here first. I probably need 20+ so definitely looking for affordable options.

@angelw1975 good news, they’re here! Let me know if you want any more pictures. It’s a nice smooth but not shiny ceramic. You can see how a 4” inside pot fits; it’s a bit big with room to grow.
I got a few from IKEA recently. I am assuming their products are mostly the same in the US as here πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
@mysugaredlife @lemrobs mentioned Ikea, too. I'll have to check!
So healthy looking!!! πŸ’šπŸ’ͺπŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ
Marshalls and Home Goods!
@PlantMompy I honestly have the opposite problem to you. I can never seem to find pots with holes so pretty much all my plants are forced to be in grow pots inside covers.
Look on Etsy they have tons!!
I use anything my husband can put holes in! Metal cans, cheap pots on sale or at a yard sale. Go to good will, thrift shops, antique stores etc! You never know what your going to find!!
Walmart used to carry them but I haven't bought a cover pot in years so I'm not sure if they still do. Home Depot and Lowes are also probably good places to look. (:
@PlantMompy oh sure, it’s not good enough when I suggest it, but as soon as @mysugaredlife mentions it you’re going to check!! πŸ™„πŸ€£
Still waiting on the delivery to see them in person, but I haven’t seen better options for just 2 bucks…you do need a lot more than I do though
@lemrobs ease show them when you receive! They look promising!!
@lemrobs 🀣🀣🀣 if it makes you feel any better I had asked my son to pick me up some last time he was going past IKEA (we live 2 hour drive away) and I asked for one to be a 25cm size one and he came back with the same one in the 10cm size. No way my Deliciosa was going to fit in that πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
I buy from WISH they have cheaps for a reasonable price. I have bought plenty from them.
@angelw1975 will do! Having a bit of a delivery issue but here’s the link in the meantime

@lemrobs have them in my cart!!! When are you expecting delivery??
@angelw1975 couple more with fuller plants so you can get a sense. These are also 4” inner pots
