Check out my new flytrap and sarracenia pots. They are 7.5 inches wide by 5.5 inches deep by 8 inches high. I can fit 5 of them in a 1020 tray so my biggest flytraps and some medium pitchers will go in them. They started life as a horse feed supplement container so they are food safe. This is the kind of recycling I can really get behind.

This pot is about half bigger all around (I'm too lazy to go measure it). It should do well for all but the largest pitcher plants.

That's a great way to reuse plastic containers. And they're white plastic, so they'll do a better job of reflecting heat in the summer.

I use my empty cat litter buckets (the big 35- and 40-pound jobbies) for holding soil and water.

It was delicious.
