White Pots?

by AndyTheTaco » Wed Dec 06, 2017 1:28 am

I've seen some square white,cream,black and I think green as well, I've heard black is bad in the sun so I'm guessing white would work? Or Green? I've heard people got plants overheated whit black ones.

There is truth to that. I simply put up a strip of white plastic arround the water trays, which also helps a bit with humidity

Same here. They're great not only cause they're white but taller than they are wide. You sure pay a lot extra to get them in small quantities, though. I got mine for $0.89 each.

where did you find them for .89/ea ?? the cheapest I was able to find was $1.13/ea buying 100 at a time shipped.

Even at $26 for ten plus stakes is not bad at all.

Growershouse.com. I think you can get them for close to that right now. Hydrogalaxy.com had them for almost the same at the time.

For small quantities, you might do better here:
http://www.nehydro.com/grow-containers/ ... 5-x-5-x-7/

The pots are $1.25 each and there's a $5 flat rate shipping.

The following users would like to thank evenwind for this post

see that is not bad either even for smaller quantities, I really tried every variation of names I could think up trying to find a better deal (something I...excel at, part my main hobby is mostly researching the crap out of things)

good to know!
