    Some plants probably don't appreciate light on their roots either.

    I have a Ventricosa growing in a clear pot and have had no trouble, so I'm basing this info off of what I've heard and read.

    I have a pothos in a plastic bottle and all around the side is cover in algea, I think thats why. Um, do you mean slime mold, because that can grow with or without light.

    Doh.. I grow all my neps in clear pots. But so far so good, no problems to report! I suspect it can't be too much a problem as so many people grow neps in mesh baskets which let even more light in. Also, many neps are epiphytes anyway. Maybe certain species roots are sensitive to light like you said, however, like VFT's etc. I honestly don't know.

    I like the clear ones as I can see the condition of the media, when to water, etc. Plus these pots have a bunch of aeration slots cut into them as a bonus.

    Plastic Jars:

    Pots. Trays. Storage for Nep fertiliser mixture. Storage for cuttings. Nep cutting pot. Storage for extra soil. Mini terrarium for plants needing humidity. Decorative pot holders. Seed storage containers. Interesting pots.

    Glass jars: All of the above.

    Cardboard boxes:

    Can be used if you need to move plants. Storing rhizomes, etc. Putting plants which are dormant and need no light in. Cut some holes in and use it for plants which don't like too much sun. Storage for pots, etc. Cut the sides out and make a mini terrarium for the windowsill.
