Put liner in bottom of planter? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by MimsKitty

Thank you so much for sending back a response to my question about the kinds of plants to plant in the coco liner pots in full sun! I'm looking forward to trying your recommendations! One additional question--should I put a plastic liner in the bottom of the coco liner to prevent water from draining, or should I just let them drain naturally?
Thanks again for your help!

A plastic liner will defeat the purpose of the coco liners, which is to provide excellent drainage. I'd forego any plastic liners and simply be diligent in watering. Choosing some of the drought and heat tolerant plants we recommended should bring you great success. Enjoy!
