    What is the best kinda pot for a cobra lily? I'm looking at this pale brown color ceramic pot. Is this good. I think it's like 7.5-8in. Would that be for life, just change the media every year? Or just go with my green 4in plastic pot?

    I really don't know. I have just never used anything but plastic. However, in reading posts about appropriate CP vessels, ceramic has come up. I'd wait for others to state opinions about ceramic pots.

    Come on people I just got my cobra lily and it's in a little 4in plastic pot. Also would a mix used for neps be good for a cobra lily? Something like LFS mixed with this orchid mix I have?

    LFS in a self-watering pot works for me.

    My personal thought on use of ceramic pots is only if the pot is glazed.
    My Cobras are in a glazed 6" pot.
    I use a soil mix of perlite, peatmoss, LFS and lava rock.
