As someone who budgets around extreme San Francisco rent prices, daunting student loans, and then whatever money is left over for "fun," let's just say I don't get around to shopping for my apartment too often. Buying items for a home that I know is temporary is typically the last thing on my mind, especially when I'm a "freshman" in the workforce — SO much can change! However, when I do make a purchase? You can be damn sure that it's worth it. After looking at my snake plant one day, I decided its plastic pot needed to go, and it was time for an upgrade.
Cue: the Amazon hunt. As always, I knew if I scoured the seller's website, I could find a cute planter that would cost WAY less than ones at stores nearby — even some of my go-to retailers were too expensive. I already had put 50 bucks into this plant and really wasn't looking to spend much more. When I stumbled upon the Mkono Plant Stand ($22), I knew I had found what I was looking for. The style is so modern, and its white pot looks great against my snake plant's green leaves. The only concern I had was whether the wood stand would look cheap in person, but it didn't at all. The only downside was that I had to assemble it, but the assembly was only screwing a few parts together — it was so easy! Let's just say, I'm not surprised that this stand has more than 300 customer reviews and a four-star rating.
Any plant will look good in this pot and stand, but if you want to create the same look for around $50, Amazon offers a live snake plant that will fit perfectly inside of the Mkono pot. Check out all three colors for yourself, and shop the plant and pot ahead. Trust me when I say, it's worth the purchase!
