Have you ever been to a thrift store and found the perfect vintage vessel for one of your plants but it doesn’t have drainage? Did you find an amazing hand made pot on Etsy…no drainage?! I can help you with that! Today you are going to learn How to Drill Drainage Holes for Houseplants. It’s not hard at all and requires very few items.
Let’s talk about drainage for a minute. I am a FIRM believer that you should have drainage holes for all your plants. I don’t know if it’s because I live in an area where it’s wet and moist most of the year but if I don’t have drainage holes for my houseplants then they WILL rot.

Which leads us back to the reason you’re here. Let’s learn How to Drill Drainage Holes For Houseplants!
