    So where do you guys get your CP pots? I want some of those big (10+") black plastic pots that nursery plants come in, but I can't find them at any stores. There are some places to buy them online, but I'd rather not pay shipping if I can avoid it. All I can find around here is ceramic and decorative plastic pots, and I feel like I don't need to pay extra for pretty colors or cute designs, espcially when I'm not even looking at the pots.
    Thanks,
    ~Joe

    I just go to Orchard (OSH) for my pots, they've got a nice selection of regular ones and then extra deep ones (I think those are the black ones you're talking about) and so on. Plastic, convenient, cheap.

    Try going to the floral department of your local grocery stores. They have 10" two gallon size black plastic heavy duty containers that hold flowers. You have to drill or cut holes in the bottom, but I get them free.

    It is very rare in life that you can get something fast AND cheap/free AND good quality. Keep in mind that some places return these to the flower vendor. Others just toss them. It helps when approaching the floral person to be humble and bumbling--I do this naturally. Wear beat up clothing, but not so beat looking that you scare them. If you are good looking, flirt a little. If not, use a whole lot of charm. These comments are not directed at you personally Seedjar despite my seeing your profile pic.

    OK - now that we found cheap big pots - how about some small - hard plastic jobs - 2"x2"x3" high (or something in that size range). Wanted for Drosera in a growing tank.

    Point me to that hidden eBay auction where I can pick up 200 for $5....
    All the best,
