Desk Organizer Style Plant and Watering Container Holder

Place this on your desk and your plant and plant accessories will stay organized in one place


A 3d printed pot for your plant gives a modern look, choose whatever color you like to show off your plant

Cover for the lower part of the flowerpot

Plants can often look untidy because of the exposed water dish underneath. This covers the area with a nice shape between the flowerpot and the base. Open on the bottom, upcycle a plastic container for a concealed water catch dish under your plant. It's nice to have a removeable container to catch any dirt or water that comes out of the bottom of the plant, because it is more easily cleaned than a 3d printed surface.

Water bottle sleeve

If the water bottle is less steady, a taller area to contain it can help. Print in vase mode.

Mount for auxillary display

A handy place to mount a sign, parts, etc. Can be placed in any of the three smaller holes in the base.

Holder for smaller pens and pencils etc

Organizer accessory to fit in one of the 3 small holes in the base for any small tall things such as pencils. Print in vase mode.
