    I have tried several bowl to hold a decorative cocoa tree but none seem to work. Has anyone successfully gotten one to look like a potted tree? I quit earlier and put a foxglove at the base. Not quite what I was looking for but it will do for now.

    I thought this looked the best, minus my fishtank scales semi hanging towards the side lol.

    edit: I did have to go to the floor ABOVE where I placed it and raised twice to get the right height. i also put them in a trash can and chopped it to get them on the same tile easily..

    It's a rubble empty potted plant holder thing. They are not too expensive, but I figured you said sandstone, and it would blend nice. Can't wait to see :]

    I like the rubble pot but if you're looking for something easy and virtually free to reproduce you could just use the custom tile sets. I just did a quick example as shown below but you could use any of the tile sets with low walls. I used a single dirt tile floor set in the middle of the small walls.
