    Recycle those plastics for CP use.

    I'll start with the most obvious.. empty milk jugs for RO water.



    Beanie Baby cubes & Lowe's death cubes. All drilled out and ready for use.



    They make great clear pots for cephs and regia, which have really long roots. Also going to be converting my tuberous dew collection to these pots come spring.



    or just keep them solid for use as a small terrrarium. Death cubes can be good for something. D. schizandra





    Got this from the grocery store filled with fruit chunks. Working wonders for my regia root cuttings.













    Ever indulge in a hot fudge sundae or a yogurt cup from McDonald's?



    They make great propagation cups for nep cuttings, drosera seedlings.. whatever tickles your fancy.



    When it's time to remove the lids for acclimation, don't throw them out. They fit those smaller pots perfectly.





    And that makes my N. macrophylla seedling happy..



    Need a lid for a square pot? Potato salad containers work perfectly..

    Cool ideas, never thought of using a death cube that way but it sure looks like it will work well

    I've been having a heck of a time finding tall pots that weren't super wide. These did the trick perfectly. And my favorite color is clear..

    I bet I've got you beat. I've got ALL KINDS of plastic stuffs around. My wife brings me home from work all these weird containers that stuff was displayed in. Like those hexagonal bins chapstick and stuff is displayed in / sold out of. Got lots of those. I've got round bowl-type things with black skeleton hands on 'em (looks like a skeleton is holding the bowl), figure those will make cool Halloween pieces. Haha. And, of course, I've got a bazillion of the grocery store bakery clam-shell things that muffins and stuff come in.
