I counted 13 Addeniums in pots in my front garden. I hadn't realized I had so many. I need to repot about 4 of them and prune a couple more. The one with the damage caudex I wrote in about on March 27th is full of blooms. I'll try to remember to take a picture of that one tomorrow. I don't have them in clay pots but the glazed kind - and they seem to do quite well.

Most of mine are in plastic, but I couldn't afford clay!

What ever pot you use, it's how you water.

And, Elfie, I had a good laugh the other day when I came across an old photo of my five plants on my deck. Hahaha, five! Sometimes I think about which one I'd keep, if something were to happen that I could have only one. Hummmmmm..

Doris, I did see the on the Greenhouse Mega Store in the U.S. And they started at $1.00each.
Have seen them used here and some come with handles on the sides.

I like fabric pots too jericson, but I use it for some of my orchids, dwarf eucomis and narrow leaf ficus loves it. My fabric pots are called geopots, I got those with handles, so it is easier to move.
