    would this pot work for cephalotus?

    I keep hearing that cephs seem to thrive in selfwatering pots
    would this one work? and could it be a plastic pot with a wick?


    Product Details

    This self-watering pot is the answer to people who do not want to be "slaves" to their plants. The plant is planted in the inner pot and simply keep water in the outer pot, which in turn wicks water to the inner pot and plant as needed. Inner pot inside diameter is 2.25 inches. The exact color of the pot may vary slightly.

    Ideal for plants such as: African Violets, Asparagus Fern, Boston Fern, Christmas Cactus, Chrysanthemum, Grape Ivy, Swedish Ivy, Peace Lily, Philodendron, Poinsettia, Spider Plant, and virtually every other house plant.

    Plants not included
    2 Pots in 1. With felt feet to prevent surface scratching
    1 Pot for the Plant, 1 Pot for the Water
    Heavy Glazed Ceramic Pot
    Great for all house plants
    4 3/8" x 3". Plant not included

    I like those pots. I've only seen them carried in a couple of stores but they're so expensive...I'll need to keep my eyes open for online deals and garage sales.

    Yes, it works very well. It will provide just the right amount of water to the plant. I don't know about one with a wick, I would say no, butit could work. If you have a plant to test it with that you wouldn't mind losing, go ahead.

    and this specific pot wouldnt be too short for a young ceph or seedlings? somewhere I read that short pots can rot faster and stay waterlogged, that doesn't apply to these self watering pots right

    It would be best to get one as big as possible to allow for growing plants, and not only should cephs be grown in deep pots to accommodate for their long roots, but the pots that are wider than they are deep do not work well at all.

    Would a lighter more "airy" mix be needed/desirable?
