Does the type of container matter?

alby(10b)June 10, 2009

I am going to try to propagate some cuttings from several different Acalypha shrubs and some Bauhinia Tomentosa seedings to eventually plant in the ground and thought I would use some clay pots that I already have. Will they be alright for this or would it be better to use plastic ones? I recall looking for small plastic nursery type pots a while back and couldn't find any.

Oh and by the way, what would be the best soil for this, Miracle Grow mixed with perlite or peat moss?

Thanks you.

the pots don't really matter, but with clay you'll have to water more often. as for potting soil. i use miracle grow potting mix and add extra perlite. don't use the moisture control one, nasty stuff in my experience.
