L'invention concerne un conteneur (2 ou 22) pour cultiver un ou plusieurs végétaux, qui comporte une base (4 ou 24) permettant de soutenir le conteneur (2 ou 22) dans une position verticale sans autre support. Ce conteneur présente une pluralité de côtés (6, 26) et une partie supérieure (3, 23). Cette dernière comprend une ouverture délimitée par quatre parties latérales dont au moins deux possèdent une partie d'un ou de deux moyens de raccordement. Chaque moyen de raccordement comporte une partie mâle (11, 31) et une partie femelle (10, 32) qui s'emboîtent de manière libérable. Un certain nombre de moyens de raccordement mâle-femelle peuvent être choisis. La base peut présenter un ou plusieurs trous et les côtés peuvent comporter des fentes et d'autres moyens pour favoriser la croissance des racines. Ces conteneurs, qui sont empilables, peuvent être utilisés unitairement, par lots, en rangées ou en plateaux dont ils peuvent être séparés selon les besoins.
