I use all different types. Terra Cotta, glazed, plastic. Terra Cotta can be an issue in extreme heat, but then so can black plastic pots. Shapes and sizes will depend on the width of caudex and root system. As long as they have plenty of drain hole in the bottom, all will work.

Very nice. I like those shallow pots. Thanks for the idea.

I kinda use whatever I have on hand, but I do try to stick with azalea-type pots that are slightly wider than tall or the same height:width.

I agree with Carter. Wider at the bottom is easy to pot up later

Why is wider at the bottom makes it easier to pot up?

I think she means wider at the bottom than a "normal" pot, not wider at the bottom than at the top - that would make repotting *really* difficult!! nodding

Opps typed that wrong. The shape of the pot helps when you up-pot. Your not pulling to hard to get your plant our of a smaller area then the opening.
