Re deep pots:  I find that getting a narrow wastebasket (plastic)  various 
sizes from either Wa-Mart or similar  store and drilling about 3-4 holes ion 
the bottom with a half-inch drill or burning the holes in with a hot wire 
works very well for tall bulbs such as crinum and hymenocallis  Using a 
small torch on solme of them enables one to turn the top edges down to form 
handle for lifting and moving.  . Some experimentation is needed to find 
which plastic ones do what.  Adam in Glenview IL.   Z5a but later than Jim W

Subject: [pbs] question on pot depth

Hi All,

I am growing some Brunsvigia though all are just seedlings I was wondering 
what depth of pot I should put them in. At the website for stuewe and sons 
they have a

TPOT3  7.75 in wide (20cm) and 12.5 in deep (32cm)

or the

TPOT4 7.75 in wide (20cm) and 18 in deep (46cm)

Anyone have a pro or con for the different depth?

I am thinking deeper is better but i dunno.

Tanks fer da hep.
