    I would just use E6000 glue over the crack. You might want to use it inside and out for extra reinforcements. Good luck...

    I did exactly the same thing. I went to Home Depot and purchased Kwik seal plus, kitchen & bah adhesive sealant...waterproof. Its still holding up after several seasons. I applies some inside and out, wiping away any excess...let it dry and I was back in business

    Next time, start with a small drill bit and gradually get bigger, let the drill do the work and don't put a lot of pressure on the drill. If the crack isn't real serious you can reinforce the area with marine silicone to keep too much water from sleeping in the pot and take care to be careful when moving it to support the bottom due to the weight on the bottom of the pot from the soil and plants. Marine silicone will be safe for plants and be durable, it is what all glass aquariums are held together with and doesn't cause problems with fresh or salt water fish, and some use it to glue coral in place on rocks in their salt water tanks, so is safe for plants. I hope you can still use your pot, Miriam!
