Flowerpots are containers that can be decorative or functional and which serve to cultivate plants. The most common ones in pottery are terracotta, as in the first photo, but they are also made and decorated in many different ways. They have a small hole in the bottom or side to allow the excess water to run away and to avoid the hole getting blocked; they are placed on top of a small stand, creating a space between the floor and the base of the pot. Some can also be bought with legs as part of the structure of the pot.
