    Pots to use

    Hi is it a good idea to plant Drosera Intermedia, Binata, Rotundifolia, Capensis Alba, Capllaris 'Long Arm' in terra cotta pots? it's hard to find plastic pots except ordering them offline and i would if shipping wasn't 5.00+ so is it a good idea to plant them in terra cotta pots?

    Well, if you are growing them in water trays it should be fine....they may get green and scummy though.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Make sure the terracotta pots are new and washed... if they are being reused, I suggest washing them well/soaking them in water overnight to get rid of accumulated salts & minerals that could leach out into your plants' soil.
