This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

I've managed to put together 10 potted plants I made using bits of various meshes/textures from the game.
These items should work without or with any expansion packs.
UPDATE 07.01.2020 - All plants now have two subsets: the plant and the pot.
Meshes and recolor files have been updated. *note: old recolors will only work for plant subset!*
other changes: improved catalog thumbnails for smaller items, fixed off-center shadows.
Bonus pack: fixed normals on Coffee Table. Square Metal Planter received one placement slot.
All objects are now recolorable.
Empty thumbnails bug: old version of TinyLollipopTree-LightGreen-MESH was corrupted in a weird way and sometimes could cause empty thumbnails for other CC items. If your game has been affected, please replace the mesh with the new one and refresh the thumbnails. Apologies to anyone that experienced this. Big thanks to Krabbysims and Epi7 for finding out.
"Square Metal Planter" - Buy Mode/Decorative/Misc/ 50$ - cloned from a planter by Honeywell, has one placement slot. A match for Hosta in a Tall Pot.
"Stone Bowl Planter" - Buy Mode/Surfaces/Misc/ 200$ - has one placement slot that will accept large 1-tile objects like shrubs, trees etc.
"Shabby Coffee Table" - Buy Mode/Surfaces/Coffee Tables/ 60$ - has two placement slots. I used Disappearing Coffee Table to arrange the plants for the screenshots.
"Small Hydrangea" - Build Mode/Garden Center/Shrubs/ 99$ - non-growing flower shrub. Fits the Stone Bowl Planter.
There's a very slight chance somebody generated the same GUID (mesh object's unique ID) for The Sims 2 creation at some point.
If you put two custom objects with the same GUID in the game files, only one of them works.
Remember to check if all new objects meshes you put in your folders show up in the game
