    We primarily use 3" pots to reduce the shipping costs, with the weight of wet soil and all.

    We have had plants in 3" pots for a couple of years without a problem... but I think 4-5" pots are ideal... especially if you have more than 1 plant in the pot.

    HOWEVER, I've never seen an adverse effect from the 3" pot being used long term... one reason why we continute to use them

    The minimum pot size is around 3-4 inches. So yeah they should be fine like Phil said. BUT you can create a very neat site like I did. Take around 8-10 CP's like VFT and some Sarracenia and plant them all in a 15-10 inch pot. It is an awesome site to see. Very cool look to it.

    Good deal. It is a very nice patio or outdoor conversation piece. I will put mine right on my steps outside this year. Or in front of my greenhouse to lure people! But the best part is the plants will have all the room they will ever need!

    Hmm... After I find out just exactly how my other plants grow, that may seem like a good idea... Of course, I would need motivation... and with me, well, let's just say HA!!!

    Yeah, I love getting people to ask me questions about cp. It's great fun telling people VFTs are from North Carolina.
