Monitor Brass Soil Probe by Greenery Unlimited
This Brass Soil Probe from the plant-geniuses at Greenery Unlimited helps monitor the condition of your plant’s soil so you know when it’s time to water – truly vital information given that over-watering is one of the leading causes of plant death! The probe even helps aerate your plant’s roots and soil, allowing them to breathe for optimal health.
Brown Buckle Up Adjustable Planter by cloudnola
A Design Milk reader favorite, the Buckle Up Adjustable Planter by cloudnola is a fashion-forward accessory for your hanging houseplants. The leather hanging straps are compatible with nearly any flat-bottomed planter and feature an adjustable belt-buckle design allowing you to customize the height of your houseplants as needed. Also available in black leather, we love the warmth the brown buckle up planter brings to a space.
Box Planter with Cement Pots by Ohio Workshop
There’s something undeniably charming about this handmade box planter by Ohio Workshop. We think the petite hand-poured cement planters that fit adorably inside and the “this is ‘la vie en rose” engraving may have something to do with it. Make it a home sweet home for small plants, herbs, and succulents, and relish in its cuteness throughout the day!
It’s incredible to think how far we’ve come from the early days of plant-shopping – when finding houseplants meant cluelessly wandering nurseries and outdoor stores before picking a plant that had minimal chance of survival but looked nice. Today, Bloomscape magically delivers ready-to-go plants straight to your door along with tips and tricks for keeping them alive and thriving. The best part? You can shop according to your indoor lighting conditions, plant-difficulty, size, and pet-friendliness to find the best houseplants without the fuss.

Design lovers will appreciate the Sutton’s round profile and the timeless modern look of the white colorway!
Jane Planter by House Raccoon
Design Milk shopper Lindsey says her Jane Planter by House Raccoon, “brightens up the room,” and we couldn’t agree more! The pomegranate colorway brings a punch of energizing color to your space and makes for a beautiful contrast against the spectrum of green hues in your houseplants. A delightful bonus: House Raccoon plants one tree for every item sold!

Every plant-lover will enjoy the thrill of receiving a new plant each month via subscription boxes from the Sill (it’s why we ranked it as one of the top gift subscriptions to give for the holidays last year!).

Aquastar Watering Can by Eva Solo
Far from conventional watering cans, this watering can by Eva Solo looks like it traveled back in time from the future to grace our home and houseplants with its sleek, ultra-modern design. The Aquastar’s conical shape, narrow spout for precise and even watering of small plants, and elevated chrome finishes all make it a watering can you’ll want to proudly display in your home.
Atlas Hanging Cork Planter by Mind the Cork
If you’re looking to grow your houseplant collection and save space in the process – a hanging planter like this one from eco-conscious brand Mind the Cork is a solid choice. The planter’s cork construction offers a visual tactile contrast to the lush greens of your houseplants, and the off-white hanging cord adds to its down-to-earth (no pun intended) feel.

The platform planters in Tortuga’s Yin Yang set can be used separately around your home, or seamlessly joined together to turn your houseplants into a sculptural work of art.
