    I found these most ADORABLE tiny ceramic 1 ounce (2 inches high by 2 inches in diameter) pots at Canadian Tire today. I know that VFT's usually only need a small area for the root, but is this too small? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] The reason I ask is I still have 2 more VFT's coming bare-root, and I'm wondering if these pots will be too small for the root area and if the plants will suffer?

    Thanks anyone who can help! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Aw, they might be too small then. Luckily I picked up some 4 ounce pots! The VFT's I have coming are 2-3 years old I believe. The traps are probably about 1 inch. So I think they're probably mature.

    I have 2 sundews coming too, although I have no idea how big they'll be. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
