    For you experts out there:

    I am going to try to grow my Utrics in a 4.5" plastic container that you get when you order Chinese food and get soup. I am growing them undrained in peat/perlite. The cups are kind of opaque. Is alge on the sides going to be a problem?

    Nah thats when you order rice et cetera. This stuff is plastic, it even says reuseable and recycleable on the bottom, so I did.

    I know what he means... it's the won ton soup plastic container. Algae could be an issue, but it can also be removed. Here's another idea, with H.D. throwaways:

    What jim showed is great if you dont have much cash... but for 20 bucks you can get 50 3.5 square pots! I have room for 7 more plants!!!! SEVEN!! and a nice uniform arrangement!

    It goes up to 4inch square if you want bigger. Its great for Drosera Utircs and Pings.

    Cheers

    Wow! That's a great idea with the H.D. throwouts jimscott. I see that you grow a lot of plants in them. Just wondering though... What are H.D. throwouts? I gotta get some of those

    The garden center will have a lot of the black plastic trays, that re used for displaying plants. These trays came from a display of roses that were wrapped in plastic. Just ask a garden associate.
