Plant stands serve many purposes. Not only do they give your plants a boost in height and allow them to catch more natural light streaming in from the windows, they also add interest to a space.
With stands in nearly every size, shape, style, material and price point, you can find one to suit your needs. So, whether you’re nurturing a tiny succulent or growing a towering fiddle leaf, the right plant stand for you is out there.
Since many plant stands are constructed of weather-resistant materials, they can often work inside or out on a porch or patio — making your cactus, snake plant or ivy even more aesthetically pleasing, no matter where it’s placed.
Here are seven of our top plant stand picks on Amazon that are perfect for every type of space — indoors and out.
