    Btw, I wouldn't call that set up ghetto. I'd say you're just being "green" by recycling. LOL



    exactly, it's hard to find a deep pot that doesn't scale it's width! I've taken to using these awesome drink bottles that are not only deep but square!

    Why not? Tall and the price is right. You could always buy some spray paint for plastic and paint them whatever color on the outside you want. You might check what the plastic is (recycle resin code should be on the bottom). #5 pp (polypropylene) tends to get brittle from UV after a year or so. An acrylic based paint would extend the life.

    LOL! The 20 cups I just got from a co-worker all have the Buffalo Bills emblem on them. My wife may actually go for them!

    looks like a great setup, you could always use red solo cups if you really wanted to give it that recyled look

    Hey, at least the Bills are good for something!
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Lynn bought at presented an early Christmas present for me. She bought a
    case (32) of 9” tall plastic pots, the ones I requested months ago, hoping
    to get them by my birthday (5 weeks ago), for the gemmae I was soon to be
    receiving. Since nothing happened, I went ahead and scarfed up as many 32
    ox beverage cups I could find and poked drainage holes in them for the
    gemmae. Naturally, Lynn viewed the cups as hideous and that led to the
    early present. I spent the time before work transferring what I ad into 15
    pots, making a big mess in the process. Two of my cups toppled over and the
    gemmae / media went all over the place. I probably shocked and killed
    indeterminable amount of sprouts and buried several more in the transfer.



    I have an idea for the used beverage cups, though. When I get my
    Sarracenias & VFT’s back in March I will be repotting and making divisions.
    I can do one plant per type. They will have more depth than the pots they
    have been in.
