Essential Plant Care Supplies

21 May 2021


This guide lists all the items I love and use to take care of my houseplants. I will not recommend anything that I do not personally use. I hope this helps you, no matter if you are a beginner or a seasoned plant parent!

Guide will be updated periodically as I acquire new items or find better products. Rest assured that this list contains the best of the best!

We love a cute pot around here! These pots are my top Amazon picks.

FYI I actually get most of my plant stands from Homegoods! So if you see a pot/stand on Instagram that is not linked, it is most likely a Homegoods find.

Decor & stands

Fully integrate plants into your home with these decor items and plant displays.

Grow Lights

Grow lights are not the same as your regular old light bulbs! These have specific wavelengths that mimic sunlight and encourage plant growth. They have helped my plants grow even throughout the winter. I swear by them!

Care/Pest Control

Everything I use to combat pests and keep my plants in good health.

See the full/updated list on Amazon.


Additional accessories and tools to help with plant care.

Passive Hydro

After a horrible battle with fungus gnats, I’ve moved 90% of my plants into a passive hydroponics system. I put a net pot inside a decorative cache pot (no hole) and fill the cache pot with water. Here are all the materials you’ll need to get started.

If you have questions about anything I use in my plant care routine, feel free to ask in the comments below! Is there anything that I’m missing here that you would you recommend? Follow me @play.with.dirt on IG!

P.S. I will get a small commission if you make a purchase through these links at no additional cost to you. Thanks for your support!
