    Default The thing under the pot

    Please have a look at this picture:

    What's the thing under the flower pot called in English?
    You know....that thing that's used to prevent the water from leaking when we water the flower....
    I was wondering if it's called "flower plate".
    But it seems plate rather refers to the thing we use to hold food.
    And a flower plate seems to mean that the plate is decoreated with flower patterns....

    Last I bought a potted plant it was called a saucer, even though I am sure this thing might have a few terms depending on where you live.
