So cute...where do you get those micro minis and where do you get the tiny pots you put them in?

I love Tiny Moon Goddess; she's a tough old broad. :-) Oh, she does have one interesting eccentricity -- when she blooms (which is nearly constantly), all the leaves move to one side of the plant. It looks odd at first, but you get used to it.

However, the pots look a bit too large, and they shouldn't be terra cotta (they dry out too fast and damage the outer leaves), and the soil that I see is *much* too heavy; it should be at least 1/3 perlite.

Just kibitzing,

I keep getting outbid too on TMG. Funny! It's a cute little plant; someday I'll get one.

Hi Korina,
From what u posted earlier about pot size what do you suggest is a good size for micros,minis and semis? What are the downfalls to having the wrong size pots? I'm interested in these sizes and need to get educated before buying them. I have only standards now. Thank U for any info that anyone can give me :) Linda in NJ
