| I have been on a mission to find adenium pots. The New England Pottery Company makes some very nice ones!!!|
Three holes in the bottoms! Feast your eyes!
I'm looking a distributor.. Lowes carries some of these (the one I recently got is NPC)
I love early american pottery like Roseville, ect.... so pots are important!

|Those are very nice but I bet they are pricey!! There is a nursery in Homestead (on Krome Avenue) that has thousands of pots to choose from.|

|Hi Hetty, are you talking about Isaac Farms? I was there a few weeks ago. Not only they have a large selection of pots, but also have beautiful succulent plants and adeniums. |
Gardening is cheaper than therapy!
Boricua in Florida, I guess that makes me a Floridicua!

|Ive, I think it must be the same place; I don't actually know the name of this nursery; ok I just googled it; I think it is the same place yes!|
It is a very tempting place to go and shop

The pottery is very nice and worth drooling over. The glaze work is also very nice. However, I stay away from pots that are wider at the center than the top because that narrower top gets in the way when repotting time comes around. For my adeniums, I try to favor something that is rather shaped like a cone, as opposed to a belly. But no doubt about it, those pots are just gorgeous.
As far as pots go, I consider myself lucky that the little fruit & veggie stand / nursery outlet just down my street carries a good selection of terracotta orchid pots with the slits cut out of the sides, for very little money. They're nowhere near as pretty as the pots shown above, but they do a very good job of keeping my babies on the dry side.
So, I'll have to add Isaac Farms to my itinerary next time I go to Homestead, probably in early August.
Take care, all.

I have been using orchid pots most the time do to slits in the sides. These plants push roots so fast sometimes they plug the bottom hole. with orchid pots most the ones i use have bottom and 4 holes on the sides harder to block.
A note to all I am trying to custom paint different pots to match likes or decor with clay pots
i have a great saucer type that will be easy to remove due to it dost have a top narrower then the center as Syivin talked about i know some of my adeniums if lest very long i could never get them out of those pots.
I am going to offer my services for these pots and orchid pots. i can seal them or not. i will post a few picks in a few days if it works out for me. thinking first design will be traditionalist bonzi look maybe spell out some words with nice brown white and black with a touch of red to stand out.
and the 2nd mabe a native American or a picture of adeniums i like the thought of a broken crushed tile that matches your color. I am working on attaching feet to keep off the concrete/ table patio.
but open for suggestions

|Ha - found a nice pot cheap at a yard sale this morning.|
Found MANY nice pots today - at three different yard sales, and really scored. But one is a specific Adenium pot.

| Always fun to find a treasure, makes a good start to the day!! Goodwill is also a good place to find pots on a deal!|
Jul 21, 2012 11:44 AM CST
|I never find pots at Goodwill.... I think they have a gardener who works there who gets all the pots |
Jul 21, 2012 1:44 PM CST
|I am not generally lucky at yard sales, or GoodWill. I can't remember seeing the kind of pots I like at GoodWill. I guess they, too, have a gardener working for them. I have been lucky when 2 different gardening friends gave me a whole slew of terracotta pots. One gave me 6 20-inch pots, which was like Christmas morning for me. They came just at the right time, after I had rescued a whole bunch rare philodendrons and needed to pot them badly.|
Another friend gave me 18 8-inch terracotta pots. That, too was very welcome. I always have my eyes open on trash day because people throw out the darnedest things. You won't catch me dumpster diving, but I have no qualms picking through curbside trash.

|so with my pot experiment |
what are everyone's ideas for color lettering ( Chinese...Japanese..??) . one is a classic round adenium pot plain the other is a large orchid pot so it has a lip on upper rim and oval slots on the side
The best question is would anyone think about buying them if they are done to your personal likes and if so how much would they be worth?? they are terracotta to start with can use paint that is outdoor safe and seal so doesn't run/rub off

|Show us an example Mike!!! And I would prefer not the orchid pot.|
Jul 21, 2012 2:22 PM CST
|Yes lets see, I'm interested in something with a black lip with medium green....|
something on the order of this green....
Jul 21, 2012 4:13 PM CST
|That is beautiful!!!|
