We like to stay on top of the newest products at Trader Joe’s, because, well, we usually want to buy everything—and our most recent TJ’s find warrants a trip to the store immediately. The grocery chain recently released a line of gorgeous sugar skull succulent planters, and we want one in every color.

The planters’ design is a nod to Día de Los Muertos, the Mexican holiday that’s commonly referred to as Day of the Dead.

The sugar skull is a traditional design element of the holiday, which is celebrated October 31st through November 2nd.

This isn’t the first time we’ve purchased plants from Trader Joe’s: They’re known for carrying a good selection of affordable flowers, houseplants, and succulents. If you’re lucky, you can usually score a creative planter too—like their recent line of yoga skeleton planters.

The glazed ceramic planters come in two sizes and have been spotted in red, blue, purple, black, and orange.

The small planter fits in the palm of your hand and holds either a mini succulent or a tillandsia (also known as an air plant). And, at just $3.99 it’s a steal! The larger planter (which retails for $9.99) is about double that size and holds a bigger succulent. The planters were first spotted in stores a few weeks ago, and it’s not clear how long they’ll be available.

Typically seasonal products like this don’t get re-stocked once they sell out, so if you want one you’ll need to act fast.

Whether you’re decorating for a Day of the Dead celebration or just need to liven up your desk area, these festive planters should be at the top of your grocery list. We’ll see you in the check-out aisle!
