Hi all,

I am looking for recommendations on tall white pots for 1020 trays. I am using the 3.5x3.5x5 inch black pots from greenhouse megastore. Its enough room for most of my plants and they manage space well. Id like something deeper and white preferrably.

I came across these frosted cups and was wondering if they'd cool or cook the roots. The diameter is 3.5 inches so I am gonna guess that these are about 6 inches tall. I'd like to keep the diameter 3.5 inches so I can fit 18 plants per tray. This means the 5x5x7 hydroponic pots are out of the question. If I ever get more space, those will be my go to.

Any and all recommendations are greatly appreciated!

I'm gonna use those whenever I have enough space. For now, I have too many plants to go in those pots lol

Another option is to spraypaint your current pots white.
i'm a cheepskate :D
Do you know if they're 3.5 inches across? I'm guessing they're 6-7 inches deep? The bottom of my potting mix has peat/perlite in it so I think they would stay upright.

What about some 22-ounce stadium cups in white? They're 3 5/8 inches wide at the top, 2 1/2 inches wide at the base, and 6 3/4 inches tall. Drill 3 or 4 holes around the base (not underneath, because they won't drain properly) and you're good to go. I'd do some shopping around to see if you can get a better price than $1.20 each, though.

This may be the way. I imagine they'd last way longer than the styrofoam cups too. 1.20 a cup aint bad but I will definitely shop for a lower price if one is available. Thanks for the recommendation! I think I'll see some improvements with the white cups and the extra 2 inches of space!
