Found Stone Pot Feet

My wee parlor palm is growing fast, and I recently replanted it in a large terra cotta pot.

The problem with terra cotta is that it’s porous, and so I was getting discolourations on my lino tiles from mildew.

I tried taking the pot off the ground and putting it on a trivet with holes in it but then the trivet just got mouldy.

Then I remembered that Lee Valley sells little terra cotta pot feet for your pots that go outside, to keep them from messing up your patio.  I figured, why not apply the principle inside as well?  I had three stones of a similar size that I picked up on our last visit to Middle Cove Beach, so I figured, why not use them as an attractive and yet practical way to keep my pot off the floor?
