    Is this a good pot for my Pings?

    Hey guys! I was told not to use clay pots with CPs because they release harmful minerals over time. But isn't ceramic pottery made out of clay? Does it really matter if the outside of the pot is glazed or not? I'm just trying to figure out if I should repot my pings into this pot:



    I've been using a pot too tall for my Pings so the soil has been drying out too much. I don't want them to go back to sleep but I'm wasting A LOT of water keeping the soil just right for them...

    Is it safe for my Pings to be repotted into the bonsai pot someone gifted me?

    I believe it should be fine, but the ping experts should put more info in.

    When using a clay pot it's best to have the inside glazed as well, although I don't think that it makes too much of a difference. I've had my pings in a similar pot and they're happy as clams. That bonsai pot will look killer with some pings in it too!

    From what I've heard Pings are pretty tolerant of minerals in their soil. They should be fine. Nice pot, the plants will look great in it!

    Here are Piro and Lau in their new home. Hopefully they don't go into shock from the transplant...

    ooo... im too late. yes, it shouldnt matter as much for pings, but if you're super paranoid (like me) i would use a thin sheet of plastic (like a clear garbage bag) to line up the pot and put my media into that.
