|I buy the small bags of moss (not the Spanish moss, but long fiber peat) at the dollar store to put in the bottoms of pots. Not only does it keep the dirt from falling out of the pot, it also helps to conserve moisture. When it's time to repot, I put the plant, moss and all into the new pot. It eventually breaks down, but will help ease the shock of transplanting as the roots are still in 'familiar surroundings'|

|Simple ideas are often the best!|
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

I agree! This solves one of my most frustrating problems. I've been using pieces of old plastic or clay pots. Our local dollar store sells everything for only one dollar, so it's a great solution. Thank you for posting it Rick!
