    I use the bottoms of 2 and 3 liter soda bottles. Cheap and highly customizable. And I make them as a I need them. I cut them to the height I need them and drill four holes in the bottom. I actually prefer them over the plastic pots I used to buy at Home Depot. I even use the 3 liter bottles as watering trays for the 2 liter bottoms, because they fit perfectly one within the other. Plus they take up a lot less space than other kinds of watering trays.

    What kind of plants are you looking to put into them? My preferred pots for Dionaea have become the insulted beverage cups that you can buy at the Dollar Tree in packs of 20 for $1. They help insulate the roots of the plants to keep them from getting too hot in the summer and the white sides of the cup also don't heat up in direct sunlight so they stay cool. Your plants will thank you for the insulation and more stable soil temperatures by growing healthy root systems which produces larger plants.

    You can also use them for baby Sarracenia, but full grown Sarrs don't fit too well in them.

    I don't know about that. I can't see how round bottle bottoms with make use of room better than square pots. Even when you mix sizes... they still do pretty good about using all possible space IMHO. Plus it looks cool

    Some Sarrs from March last year (mostly in 3.5" but up front you see some 4.5" and in the back left you see some 2 1/4")


    Some flytraps from last year, mostly in 2 1/4" but some in 3.5" as well.
