They have a matte finish on the outside, smooth and shiny on the inside. Fairly thick walls, but easy to drill for drainage holes. The plastic isn't brittle: no cracking or problems when drilling.
These plants are the "25 for $25" ordered from the FlytrapStore earlier this spring. They were in a temporary pot set-up for longer than I had planned. Happy to have them now in their new pots where they can relax and grow for a year or two. 31 plants went into my 30 cups, and the 12 tiniest plants are together in a different container.
A bit of long-fiber sphagnum goes on the bottom to block the drain holes, then FTS peat/silica mix up to about 2/3, and the top third is more sphagnum. The sphagnum doesn't get easily washed out of the pot during our summer rain storms, compared to the loose peat mix.
These cups finally arrived, and I'm very pleased with them.
