Need plastic pots

helga1September 20, 2009

I ran out of all my old garden pots and have to order orchid containers for the first time. I like the see-through kind. Are they worth the money? Also could use larger chunks of Perlite.

Which is your favorite, reliable and most reasonable Supplier?

Appreciate your advise.

I love the clear orchid pots because it makes it soooo much easier to monitor your watering. I have purchased nice-quality, clear orchid pots on Ebay from Norma at the Ebay Store Norma's Orchid Ranch. Just put "clear orchid pots" in the search box and her products will come up along with a few other vendors that sell these as well. Good luck!

I like Kelly's Orchid supplies. Used them for years and they have quality products. I think their prices are good, but don't know how they compare to Ebay.

For the West I'll second Calwest (web address in previous post), and have only good things to say about in the East (MD).

Both have a wide variety of very good products (including clear and clear slotted pots) and provide excellent packaging and efficient service.

I agree with Sweetcicely. is the best. Excellent source for pots and potting medium. I always receive my order within two days of placing it. Many times it's actually at my door the next day.
