    Looking for a certain type of pot that is a certain size and shape.

    Hello. I'm going to be repotting some plants soon and I'm looking for a certain type of pot for the new growing area. The size of the pot needs to be 3.5 inches in diameter but relatively tall (at least 4.5inches tall) so it would be relatively narrow. It can be either square or circular, but would prefer it to be plastic.

    Places like Home Depot and Lowes don't have what I'm looking for so I'm wondering if there are any specialty gardening stores that might carry this type.

    If they have any hydro grow stores or greenhouse/indoor grow stores, you could check them. Otherwise, you may have to make something yourself out of a plastic bottle or something.

    If you don't mind it seeming a bit cheap, you could always use those plastic "party cups". They are about the size you specify, but are much cheaper, and work just as well in my opinion.

    Depending upon what "look" you want and how imaginative you are, try hitting a thrift store like GoodWill or Salvation Army. While it is always a crap shoot doing so, you may luck out and find either an actual pot fitting your needs or a container (plastic or ceramic) that will do just fine once you drill a hole or two in it. The following are two examples of containers I picked up for a buck or two, drilled drainage holes and now use as pots (neither is plastic but they make the point):

    I'll take a look around various nurseries in my area.

    Wondering what plant needs such specific dimensions
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Out of curiosity, this that a fire star aloe?
    And as bio said, a party cup would do the trick.
