Make the difference in size so that there's an air space between them. I have even slipped old styrofoam plates and cups down in the gap between the pots for insulation...it makes a difference when a hot sun is hitting the pot. I'm down in south Alabama and summers can get tough down here, too. Maybe not as arid as where you're at but we get some high heat and humidity. Paint is an option, but I'm not sure how it works out if the pot is sitting in water.Intheswamp wrote:Here's a thread in the forum pertaining to growing plants in the heat:White pots are harder to get but as the sun is nothing to be joking with I'll have to figure something out, maybe self-watering solutions will come in handy in my region? I'll have to test. Thanks again for sharing valuable information. Possibly Drosera Capensis could take some more sun over my place...
Focus on tropical plants.
Use white pots.
Self-watering containers... Most of the ones over here have a small reservoir. With sundews you may want as much as half the pot submerged in the water. But, being in your dryer region you may be able to find some with larger reservoirs. Most people that are serious with their CPs use trays to put there pots in. In all depends on your situation, location, climate, etc.,.
