Does anyone know where to get bulk large green square pots without the ridges or lips? I really like how they look and fit in a standard tray and I see them in multiple carnivorous plant grower videos but all the ones online I see have the lip like in this picture

Can you post a picture of the type of pot that you want, along with the size?

Those look like WaterDance pots but I don't know if they come bigger than 3.25" square.

I came across your post as I was scrolling through the forum and was curious to see if you ever found the pots you were looking for?

If you know anyone with/ own a 3D printer have you thought of having it printed? There are filaments that hold up well in the heat and would work for your intended purpose.

I never did find the exact pots I wanted but I found some green pots on greenhouse megastore that work okay. Definitely thinner material than I expected but size was okay. I haven’t thought of 3D printing nor do I know anyone with one but I’ll keep that in mind for the future :)

There are all kinds of simple designs you can find print files for free to print or buy the rights to print files for fancier stuff. You can find files on places like thingiverse.com or cults3d.com, here’s a random file for example.

https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/home/pot-de-fleur-carre

They have plain ones as well if you don’t want any design or anything on them.

If you don’t end up buying one yourself I own one and sell prints here and there for the hobby for about the cost of the material.
If you find a file and want something like that done in the future let me know.

I bought a few of those pots about 4 years ago. They are a bit flimsy, but they seem to hold up well. I use them mostly for sowing seeds and sprouting leaf pulls.
