INGEFÄRA Plant Pot
A classic terracotta pot never goes out of style, and this IKEA option would be a great investment. With a saucer at the bottom, it will hold any water that comes through the bottom of your plant and make keeping houseplants on your desk or shelf mess-free.
If you haven't checked out IKEA's plant section, you are largely missing out. The store boasts a ton of live houseplants for an approachable and affordable prince, in true IKEA fashion. New plant parents will appreciate the snake plant's ability to live in any light or growing condition along with its jungle-like appearance.
Aloe Vera Potted Plant
Another adorable plant option to choose at IKEA is a reliable aloe vera, a plant as pretty as it is functional. As long as your aloe has lots of light to bask in, it will be a beloved houseplant of yours for years to come.
BITTERGURKA Plant Pot
IKEA is a great stop to not only grab a plant, but an affordable pot as well. This sculptural beauty is a perfect planter for small veggies, herbs, flowers, you name it. Its small wooden legs ensure you can place it atop a shelf, table, or windowsill with ease.
GRÄSMARÖ Gardening Tool Set
Every beginning gardener needs a few essential tools, and IKEA has you covered with this set. The tools are easily organized with the ring, and you can remove them as you use them. Plus, the durable plastic is easily washed off after a long day of digging.
VITLÖK Plant Stand
Plants won't thrive where there isn't some sun, so lift them up to the light with this cute plant stand. Once on the stand, they immediately become part of the conversation as a décor piece in your home.
The best part? This plant stand works indoors or outdoors to accommodate whichever plants you need to be lifted.
SESAMFRÖN Plant Mister

JACKFRUKT Herb Scissors
Sometimes while in the garden, you don't want to get your hands dirty—plus, you don't want to damage your plants and herbs while harvesting. These scissors provide the perfect, budget-friendly solution. Wield these each time you're harvesting basil leaves and rosemary springs to get a clean cut.
FÖRENLIG Plant Pot
New to plant parenting and on a budget? IKEA has pots on offer for under $1—seriously. This white pot is made from recycled plastics and is a perfect introduction to plant parenthood.
As a lot of decorative pots like this one don't come with drainage holes at the bottom, consider drilling or poking them yourself to ensure that water properly drains from the soil.
MUSKOTBLOMMA Plant Pot
This pot is so chic if we do say so ourselves, and it will give the perfect Mediterranean appeal to your plants. It looks a bit rustic, yet a bit more stylized than your average terracotta option, making it a great option if your plants are a part of your interior design.
