Succulents have really become popular in recent years because of their low maintenance and because even people with no “talent” for growing plants can keep them alive and well and fit them in their busy day-to-day schedule.
I am a participant in the Amazon Affiliate and Etsy Affiliate programs and will get a small (tiny) commission if you decide to purchase items in this post and I thank you for that.
Most of these ceramic planters and pots are on the smaller size and will fit only small succulents, cacti, or air plants. Make sure you are familiar with the size of the pot before you order so there are no surprises when the package arrives.
I, personally, always read reviews to see if the size is true to the description and the photos.
