    I second the issue of UV breakdown of the clear pots. When last I repotted, they simply fell apart in my hands . . .

    That certainly simplifies the process......
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    If the height and size of the transparent pot is what you desire for the plant, then just use some aluminium foil to wrap round the pot to cut out the light. I use those with Disney prints for my transparent container for bog CPs...works as decoration as well!

    As everybody said before, The pots will break down very fast. I also dont like them because
    just as a general rule, theyre extremely flimsy.

    (I also remember somebody saying light is bad for plant roots, but I have no idea if this is true or not.)
