Potted plants are life affirming and full of joy, especially when they pop up unexpectedly, mounted on an interior wall. The difficulty is figuring out how to attach the cylindrical shape of a pot to the flat surface of the wall. Thank goodness for the wire pot holder.

Above: A Panacea Wall-Mounted Flower Pot Holder from Ace Hardware has a ring for the pot and a flat metal plate that attaches to the wall; $8.99. 

Above: A powder coated Plant Ring from Makr is available in pewter and avocado and fits a 4-inch pot; $48. See why Erin likes this one so much in A Balcony Style Planter for Indoors

Above: The Anthracite Single Wall Pot Holder from UK-based Podington Garden Centre acts as a basket to hold the pot; £4.49.
