5. Buy small plants
When you come to a plant store always look for the smallest flower pots so you can buy a flower pot for $ 1-2 when a larger plant can cost double 10 or more.

This can save you a lot of money, mature trees can cost $50-100 or more, so when you buy a small plant you save a lot of money.

6. Baby plants
If you have a plant like an aloe vera, banana, or any other plant that grows next to the plant with more baby plants, just take the baby pot every time and transfer it to a new pot so you will have more free pots.

I had an aloe plant and for 4 years it kept growing more baby trees, I distributed it as gifts to everyone I love and I had a lot of pots from just one aloe tree

7. Buy a package
You can buy on Amazon a package of 12 living pots that come already small and then grow them, transfer to additional pots and so in one purchase you will have dozens of beautiful plants throughout the house
