    Looks good thbjr! CFL and flourecent lights can defiantly do a good job on plants! Here is what typicals in my g/h under only the sun look like. (Not direct sun either... since these were not on a top shelf... Sarracenia go there )

    That's from last summer.. I've done a few things different this year, I'm really excited for summer hehe

    But back on topic... weather.com shows 2 days in the 30s for lows where this person is.. but averages shows April lows are around 42-51... So I really think it won't be much longer till they can go outside. (maybe after this storm passes?)

    Great suggestions given thus far.

    This is no good. It needs to be fully glazed. The pot will begin to leech minerals from its matrix into the soil, especially since it is going to be constantly wet. Use a plastic pot or (if you don't want to spend money) use a sour cream or yogurt container. Just cut holes at the bottom.

    Good luck.

    Whoops. Good catch, I'm glad I mentioned the glazing.

    I'll return it and get a plastic pot. Thanks a ton.

    --------HELPFUL TIP-----------

    Instead of trying to "cut" or "poke" extra holes into brittle plastic containers which more likely will simply crack; try using a "hot knife".

    A cheap hobby tool that heats up (standard home AC outlet) and allows you to cut thru thin plastics. You can use an Xacto blade or a dowel/chisel tip to create drain holes in any plastic pot you wish! It's really a poor-man's soldering iron...

    Hot knife example

    Also great for putting ventilation holes into clear plastic drinking cups used as small humidity domes. (acclimating new small plants)

    Available at any hobby shop. Probably Lowes and Walmart too.............

    Just be VERY careful as hot knives get unbelievably HOT!! Keep away from small children and pets.

    (and don't burn your plants either...)
