Stacked Flowerpots

Martha Stewart Living, February 2009

Sometimes small houseplants get lost among larger ones. Elevating smaller plants increases their visibility. And placing your pots at different levels will add a new dimension to the display. Simply turn a few small flowerpots upside down, and stack plants in pots of the same size on top. Intermingle these plants with larger ones. Use pots of the same material -- terra-cotta, for example -- to create a uniform look. (Place plants on a waterproof tray or drain before setting them in the desired location, so water leakage won't damage your surfaces.)

    There are many ways to use this idea. You can use different kinds of pots and larger ones as a base for raiseing up plants in pots. You can also put a small pot inside a large one and set your new plant on that to bring it up . I do this in my patio desplays all the time.

    One will have to be extremely careful not to over water, as there's no saucer underneath and that could ruin the table.
