Potting Material Advice

by Ginsburg » Mon Nov 12, 2012 7:56 pm

I know from reading here in the forums that it's best to pot your VFT in Styrofoam cups or plastic cups.....
But I was wondering if I could put the plastic or Styrofoam cup in a ceramic pot? Would it still leak harmful minerals into the water when the plant get's watered (tray method)? Will it keep the sand (and roots) too cold? :?

That should be fine, if anything it would actually benefit because of the added insulation to keep the soil at a constant temperature :)
