This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello again,
10 pots for my 10th upload (took me a while but I've got there eventually) and the last of a greenfingered trio:

A smattering of traditional shapes in warm and well worn earthy tones. You can leave them empty or fill 'em up, your choice

They are listed under dec/plants because thats where the first lot of my planters are and there is nothing to stop you from using them indoors.

For planter no 1 and basic instructions look here

For a selection of plants that you can use with these planters look here

The collection file can be found in the verdant velvet set over in the gardening section, you know...where you can find the big spikey plant that adorns many a front sim lawn. Okay, I'm going back indoors now for what will hopefully be a warm and bright autumn. I hope you'll be able to put these to good use.

Polygon Counts:
planter no 2 small: 312
planter 2 large: 312
planter 3 small: 168
planter3 large:168
planter 4 small:352
planter 4 large:352
planter 4 largest:352
planter 5 small:312
planter 5 large:312
