I've seen those a starter pots for herbs, also for a small slow growing cactus or succulent.

Of course. A herb would be good. Just be aware that clay pots are hard to keep wet. Get a little bag of potting soil and go to town.

Great, thank you. I'd like to find more for my new kitchen. Succlents/cacti sound good!

They get super hot too. You'll probably cook anything in there if you keep it in the sun. So heads up

If you have any dollar stores or crafts stores around you check them out, they often carry those little red clay (terracotta) pots for people who do arts and crafts with them. Otherwise a plant nursery that sells garden tools and supplies will generally have them in a variety of sizes too.

I use those for miniature African violets. They set in a tray of pebbles and are watered from the bottom so the clay soaks up the water for the plant roots.

Hotzcatz, I was just reading this topic for interest and....realized I have an odd long but narrow pottery dish. It's blue and doesn't match anything I have. Still it is interesting and I always wanted to find a use for it. Ta da...your idea about small plants in tiny stones watered from the bottom. Will get on it shortly. Thanks.

We're moving, so while packing the house my parents lived in for 44 years, Mom and I are finding so many things we don't want to get rid of. So, so much of that will be used in the garden. 2 old chairs we like might not be strong enough to sit on anymore, so I'm going to paint them with rustoleum and use them as plant stands. I'll also have nasturtium and Ensign morning glory growing up the legs and back. Mom's old coal bucket and shovel will be a planter too. It's amazing what you can use!
