I posted this on the Houseplant forum as well, but I know not everyone who's on the Houseplant forum frequents this forum and vice versa. I figured this would be a great question for the folks on the C&S forum too!

I know just about everyone has a favorite plant (or two, or three), but what about a plant pot? Is there one that you favor over the rest? If there's more than one you want to show off, that's okay too. Show picture(s) of your favorite(s)! You can opt to take a picture of just the pot, or display it with a plant (that's up to you!).

I have a few pots that I like a lot, but this would be my favorite. I found it at Dollar General for $3. I don't have any cacti or succulents in fancy pots at the moment, so excuse my houseplant:

My favorite plant pot is this one we got at a potting studio in Berkeley. It gives a real 'hulk' personality to my Adenium obesum.
Like its long lost lower half Big Grin
On those dormant days, it adds some whimsy to the plant.

Even better once the plant starts to bloom:

It has a smaller sized one, which is the home of my Senecio articulatus, another hulky succulent: got to show the abs..succulent style Big Grin

Editing to add photo of the pots without the plants..had to search where I stored the photos, found it!:
the pottery swirls are mesmerizing, a bit of a splurge..but just love them!

This is not so much a pot but more like a container times three (tiers). Found it at collectible/antique mall. After some sanding, spray painting, window screen wrapping, sphagnum moss stuffing and filling of soil, I planted in it.

Tarev,
Your pots look like a pair of pants, hehe. I like your pairing with the 'Desert Rose,' it sure does look like it has legs.

Webesemps,
Wow, that is stunning! I guess I could have added that hwtevwr you have doesn't necessarily have to be a pot, but any container of sorts.
