Different Sizes to fit Anywhere you Need a Boost of Spookiness

You could give your office some personal flair by adding a small skeleton planter to your desk. Measuring 20cm H × 9cm W × 5cm D, they won’t take up too much space. You’ll still have plenty of room for your work calendar, computer, and files! Or, you could go with the large option, and make a statement in your home. The large is the more popular option, and measures 28cm H ×15cm W ×10cm D. Both sizes come in the option of black or white colour choices.

Best Plants to use in your Skeleton Planter

Crawling plants and vines, mosses, and succulents will be the most beautifully displayed while using these skeleton planters. Some suggestions of the best plants to use are below:

  • Heartleaf Philodendron
  • English Ivy
  • Arrowhead Plant
  • Inch Plant

The plants mentioned above will do well in nutrient-rich soil. Keep them watered frequently, but do not oversaturate. They do need some sunlight, but not too much- an average window should suffice. You can always bring them outside if they need a bit more light. If their leaves start to turn yellow or discolor, they require more sunlight.

You could also choose some easy-to-grow succulents for the base of your planter. Recommended ones to start with would be:

  • Jade Plant
  • Echeveria
  • Panda Plant

Those succulents we mentioned will need to have sandy, well-aerated soil. We would suggest adding some clay pellets or gravel to break up some of the soil if you need. Unlike those plants we suggested, these succulents will need less water, and more sun. Remember to always read your plant care guides if you want to keep your plants alive as long as possible.
