Does anyone have any favorite pots they like to use with their AVs (primarily semi-mini and minis)? Self watering or otherwise. I'm trying to decide what pots I want. Currently I only have a couple of garden variety AVs that I picked up here locally, but I still like them. I'm thinking to add a few more minis/semi minis in the next few weeks from the Violet Barn or somewhere online if I can decide how I want to keep them and the lighting they will have. Right now I don't have a great set up for them .. they're on a table top with a grow light attached to the side and the light automatically shuts off after 6 hours. I have another grow light in the closet I can utilize, but am thinking about getting strips instead that I can mount in a bookcase at work for them.

I usually use the small pots I have on hand or improvise using a recycled plastic container. It's exciting you're adding to your collection.

The Gesneriad Society website has this page on growing plants; however, they don't mention containers, or if they did, I missed it:

I just ordered from this lovely couple today. Ceramic self watering african violet pots. These are handmade. She has been a ceramic artist since the 1960's.

I use the Dandypots, and the plastic wick watering pots from the Violet Barn. I also use 2 1/2 inch round pots with 8 oz mason jars for wick watering. The 2 work perfectly together, and they look so pretty.
