Thread: Tiny Pots

  1. #1
    Guest
    I seem to have an abundance of very small pots (1" to 3"). I also have an abundance of Drosera and Ping seedlings germinating. My question is: can I transplant the seedlings to the small pots for a while? Or do I need to put them all in bigger pots? What size pots do these guys need?
    The seedlings are:
    D. capensis "typical"
    D. spatulata
    D. burmanni
    D. intermedia
    D. filiformis filiformis
    D. binata
    Pings
    P. primuliflora
    P. ionantha
    P. moranensis

    yes it is perfectely fine to have seedlings in small pots until they get larger and need a larger pot. If you need some, i have plenty of used (ewww...used! lol) 3" pots.
    Taproot, Anti-Flag, The Casualties, Alkaline Trio, Eleventeen, Deadsy, AFI...what's not to love?

    That's what I am doing also. Even these little pots look WAAAY too big for the little seedlings! --But they are now starting to take off -- like they want to grow up and finally get bigger.
