With plants like ponytail palms or sanserverias, when they get too big for their pots, the ceramic or clay pots will break. I have learned that putting or keeping these plants in plastic pots and then inserting them into the breakable pots, they are easier to remove when the plants get snug in their plastic pots.

When I was an in-office worker bee, we had a monthly 'plant lady' tend our indoor plants. She always kept them in plastic pots within our decorative pottery - it made it much easier for her to change them up as needed, and pull them out for pruning or other care. She'd spread a tarp out in our hallway and just make one big mess out there, then scoop it all up. To cover the plastic pot rims, she ringed each pot with moss. I learned a lot from her, and was fortunate to be designated the weekly plant care person (lovely break from my more mundane tasks).
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
