Growing indoors: clay terra cotta vs. plastic pot?
This fall and winter is my first time growing herbs indoors, under grow lights. I've read several different opinions on what material is best for the pot. I think most writers say that clay terra cotta is better since it can breathe which is important for our Mediterranean herbs, but I also see on the web "Try to avoid terra cotta pots. They absorb moisture and can dry out plants prematurely". And I guess others say either is ok!
I could just go ahead and experiment but would appreciate others' thoughts and experiences. Thanks.
