MY kitten Suki likes to use the flower pots as a bathroom and i would like to know if any one has a clue on how to stop this/ break her from doing it?

Cats do prefer to use soil as a toilet, because it covers both the faeces/urine smell and presence.
Spray around the base of the plant with lemon juice - cats hate citrus smells.
Or buy some feline pheromone spray , meant to stop your cat scratching furniture, but should also work here
HTH

the lemon juice thing kinda works and kinda doesn't. now she just claws the dirt out of the pots and then either uses it or the dirt in the floor. >.< I sprayed it all around the plants the and the pots and on the floor.

Never heard of that happening before??????

Could you put tin foil around the base of the plant, completely covering the top of the plant pot? That'll take away the immediate impulse and may encourage her to use her litter.

Alternatively, experiment with different types of litter and if you can't find one she likes....... just use soil or sand. Until she gets used to using the tray. A lot of manufacturers put bleach in the litter and some cats don't like it. (Ours on the other hand, love rolling about on a freshly bleached floor.)

Is the litter in a private place? Ot in a main corridor/busy area/
