Ditto, I rarely notice pots either.  In fact, I look at show plants and feel a little sorry for them stuffed into their small pots.  I'm amazed they grow well, or at all, in some of those pots.

Plants + pots can be works of art, no doubt, but to me all pots look grubby and I would like to see the plants in carefully cultured little dioramas showing how they grow in their native habitat. As that is virtually impossible, I content myself with looking at the plant in whatever it happens to be growing in, and try to imagine it in its real habitat.

I as a plant lover do not even see the pot a plant is in. The pot is invisible to me. If I want to look at pots I go to a museum, not a plant show.
