    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? 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!

    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.

    Thanks! I'll have to see how large the sundew's root systems are once they get here.
