Warm weather is finally coming my way, and I have a bunch of projects lined up:
  • Lots of Venus flytraps to be moved to community pots.
  • Sarracenia that need bigger pots.
  • Sarracenia that need to be divided and repotted.
I was skimming through the umpteen-thousand plant pot entries on Amazon and ran across these:

2-gallon
  • Top diameter: 8.75 inches
  • Bottom diameter: 6 inches
  • Height: 8.5 inches
  • Saucer depth: 1.25 inches

I bought a set of both sizes, and I really like them: the plastic is thick and sturdy, the drainage is fantastic, the height gives a good amount of space for roots to stretch out, and each pot comes with a usable saucer. It would be nice if they were available in tan instead of green, but I'll take what I can get. They're my go-to pots until I find something better.
