'unique, whimsical and bizarre ' perfectly describes my pot collection, many of which I pick up at yard sales. You have given me great ideas for the use of others.
One of my favorites is a stapelia planted in a feather rock pot such as you describe above. It completely spills over the edges making for a very odd but satisfying (in my eyes) look!

Great pictures! All of the colors and textures of both pots and plants are such eye candy to me. What always impresses me at plants shows is how clean the plants are. Mine are dusty and spider webby and there's the mimosa tree debris, etc., etc.

I think it is great to mix up pots styles & colors. You have put them together very attractively. Fun and funky. I love POTS, purchase an interesting pot, and try to come up with something that may go with the pot. Sometimes, the combo works...sometimes not. Before we moved to NM, I used to buy awesome pots on St. Simons Island, GA. Great store there, with unique stuff. Often I would find a big pot that did not have a hole. Being too cowardly to personally drill an expensive pot, the nursery staff would do the "hole cutting". These were typically Vietnamese ceramics. We turned the pot upside down on planks or plywood. One person would slowly run water over the surface, while a staff member drilled away. The bottom of the pot often got hot, despite the tepid water, but eventually, the drill would go through. We never broke a pot, even on a couple that were about two inches thick. The nursery probably threw the drill bit away after that...? Life's short,..have a little fun...
