Speaking of overwatering: Unglazed terra cotta pots are the best friends of succulents, cacti and any other plant that doesn't love having its roots stay wet (and that's most of them). Ikea's Muskotblomma pots
are a great value, but seem to be out of stock in most stores right now. This alternative set includes 4.2-inch, 5.3-inch and 6.5-inch pots with drainage holes, plus a matching saucer for each. Promising review:
"Okay, I am over the moon about these pots. I was so unsure about buying them because of some of the negative reviews, but honestly, I have a LOT of plants and these are the best terra cotta pots I own!
They came perfectly packaged and with no damage, the dishes fit the pots so precisely, had drainage holes, AND they came with the little rust resistant mesh and felt pads! The colors of the dish also do match the color of the pot, but I just watered my plants after repotting so now the pot is darker (since it’s wet). Maybe that’s what some of the reviewers were referring to? I don’t know, but that’s a totally normal thing. In any case, I will definitely be ordering more and feel like this is one of the best Amazon purchases I have made.
What a great value and find!" — Milky WayGet it from Amazon for $28.99.
