arket usually have their terracotta ones on sale whenever I've been in store, know that's not very helpful now though haha

Aside from that i really don't mind the matte plastic elho ones, especially the ones that come with a rim that pulls the excess water away so you don't kill them by accident

Claystreet are nice if you can find them now in the UK. Picked a few desert planters up dirt cheap when AlphaShadows closed down.

Hasami Porcelain for more minimal - https://www.google.com/search?q=hasami+porcelain+planter&tbm;=isch&ved;=2ahUKEwjRxffotfvuAhWO0OAKHcbFBmoQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq;=hasami+porcelain+&gs;_lcp=CgNpbWcQARgBMgQIIxAnMgQIIxAnMgQIABBDMgQIABBDMgIIADIECAAQQzIECAAQQzIECAAQQzIECAAQQzICCABQiBdYiBdgsCFoAHAAeACAAUyIAUySAQExmAEAoAEBqgELZ3dzLXdpei1pbWfAAQE&sclient;=img&ei;=Vo0yYNHCAY6hgwfGi5vQBg&bih;=679&biw;=1404&hl;=en

Pow pots do some nice ones, pricey for the big ones though.

Take into account that some of the Serax might meed an inside pot (eg plastic inside). In any case better to use that to protect the pot & your floors

Serax look decent. As an aside I regret not picking up the serax Ann D tableware for cheap on yoox last year.

Would be good to have a plant thread. I've got into rare philodendrons over lockdown, cost of them has gone totally wild. Laughing out loud

Got a pink princess, white princess and orange prince, happy to do cuttings on here for a good price when they actually start growing to a decent size.

Serax is great. I've got the Vincent Van Duysen garden table and chair set.

Best way to clean a bit of paint splatter on wood?
Its rosewood veneer if that makes any difference.

Dude!! I’m a rare plant collector too, been doing it for a few years now and it’s a nice way to make some extra money when you need it.

Never thought I’d be having this chat on fuk Laughing out loud

I have started doing some part time work at a houseplant shop/nursery on the weekends as well which is cool, if anyone is after anything hit me up and I can try to help as have access to wholesale Cool

btw there’s some HAY/ferm/other brands of plant pots available on thread for cheap if you use someone’s referral code or scam them by referring yourself
