    The 2 1/4 are a great "small" pot size. That being said, I potted my Sarr seeds in the 3.5"ers





    I use 2 1/4" for anything that will fit Here is my D. capensis "All Red" tray and some transplanted out to their own small pots.

    Yogurt containers work really well, though they aren't too attractive.

    I have to agree with Andrew, square pots fit nice and snugly together, and they are of great quality(I bought 10 of each of the 3 sizes). If you can afford them(15$), go for it, AND you'd be supporting TF!

    And it's much nicer to look at.

    Well, you can do whatever you want It really comes down to what you want to do- I'm just showing my preference (just like others in this topic have with their ideas) I'm not sure I'd want to try and move something potted in the bottom of a bottle. Just seems too flimsy to me which could easily cause a drop or spill. I tried before to use random different things for pots, but I didn't like how it looked, and they also seemed to deteriorate very quickly after being under the lights (not like in a week, but most definitely quicker than a pot that is made to be in those conditions).

    A few years back, someone on the forum recommended yogurt containers for plant pots (with no warnings). I planted a bunch of stuff in them and a few months later, they literally disintegrated - usually at a bad time - like just before bedtime when you wanted a closer look at that blotch that might be an aphid .... pick up the pot and the container falls apart. Now there's a mess and you disrupted the plant's growth (or maybe ripped it apart) & now you've got to find another pot, mix up new media ....
    All the best,

    i like the trays from Ralph's that has salads and stuff that have the lid that clips on and the water rains back on them. or the one that the fried chicken comes in, its like five or so is good if you put it in the dishwasher it makes the greasy grease come off.

    just plant the yourgt containers in bigger pots before its too late. thats the most green idea!
