Thank you Jim and Mike!

Jim, Yes it is plastic pots. I need to report because all those pots are fallen apart, but I can not find cheap normal size pots.

If you like the plastic pots check your Dollar store where everything is a dollar, they have some nice square pots but I had to drill hole in the bottom, but they are easy to do, and they looke nice.

hmmm, I thought the prevailing thought was that plastic pots were a bad idea because they hold water where clay allows the water to evaporate better. Confused

Jim I only use the plastic type in early growing, then I change them to clay.

Jim its a good rule but as long as you keep a good eye on them you can use plastic. i have a lot in plastic also and its a pain in the rainy season but i have had to bring under cover or even re-pot with a dryer potting mix. They just require more TLC and if you worried about the looks as many are plastic are less money with color or pottery that looks nice are very expensive.

All my plants are in plastic. The ones in all pictures are sitting there for 5 years, no reporting, not soil change, no covering in rain. The soil is mixed with bark.

Most of mine are now on the patio and I have decided if it rains they will have to get used to it, it is too much work at my age to keep taking them in and out, I have taken the bottoms off the pots so they can drain easily and unless we get a severe downpour I thinlk they should be able to handle it.

Doris those of mine that are in pots I long ago got tired of bring them in take them out Angry So, except for a few seedlings all of mine are out now and this is a very active rain season. So far so good, they are not blooming like the ones in the ground, but they seem healthy, don't ruin your health for the sake of they're health.
