I love these colorful pots, they are actually mugs that I got for 50 cents each at my local Savers thrift store. I adore the cheeriness they bring to my kitchen. The citrus yellow pot behind them was an Easter bowl from the Target dollar section. I am experimenting with pots out of un-potly containers that don't have holes in the bottom. The pink mug still has the cacti's mini pot in it, but the other two I filled the bottom third with gravel pebbles for drainage then added potting soil. They seem to be doing okay, but its only been a week or two, we'll see.
