    I can't believe it. I stopped at the 2 nearest stores that carry gardening supplies, and neither one had any plastic puts under 6 inches. And no hanging pots under 10".
    One of these store was Walmart.
    Spring snuck up on them and they are totally unprepared for it.

    Ok I know I live in the sticks but jeez. Guess I'll take a trip tomorrow or saturday and see if I can find a better store.

    Anyway here is a picture of my huge pot, with a tiny plant.

    It seems 10" is the smallest that I normally have found hanging pots.
    I always plant my neps in 14" hanging pots. Give them lots of room. They seem to enjoy it.

    You can actually get little plastic clip on thingies that turn a normal pot into a hanging pot - that's what I do to turn small pots into hanging ones - necessity is the mother of invention when you have limited greenhouse space.

    Duct tape use #56
    - Can be used to make normal pots into hanging pots.

    Now to find normal pots....

    It'll fill that pot up in a few months, oversizing a Nepenthes in a pot is good to do occassionally.

    Actually, I don't think I have ever heard a plant responding badly to being put in a large pot. The reason we use smaller pots, is usually a space issue, plus less costs for potting material and smaller pots.

    Cheers,

    Ok, there it stays. My second one should be here today or tomorrow. I have another pot just as big waiting for that one.
