>I have found that regular 5 gallon pots are usually deep enough for Rhodophialas and other bulbs that like to grow deep. A solution for small quantities of bulbs is to take a one gallon or two gallon pot, fill it two thirds full of potting medium, then take another pot of the same size, cut the bottom out, place it inside the first pot and then fill it with potting medium (you then have two pots stacked one inside the other, giving you double the depth). I have had as many as three two gallon pots stacked in such a manner for things like Tropaeolum. Unpotting the bulbs is very easy, since you just lift the top pot out, and the potting soil falls away, exposing the bulbs. > Diana, Could you possibly give some sort of key as to what size the various pots are? The term Gallon isn't used here in Australia (well not for many years anyway) so I have no idea. I tend to work by the diameter of the top of the pot in either cm or inches, i.e being a standard 6"/15cm pot, or a squat 6"/15cm pot (which is the shorter version) and really have no idea of what the gallonage (is that a word) is. I can check pots for litres as they are usually shown on the bottom of some of the pots, but not gallons. Sorry to be a pain, but it is frustrating to have useful information on pot sizes for various things, but not be able to use it because you we don't use the same measurements. Your description of the stacking of the pots is rather interesting, and something I will certainly think about for some of those things that like to try to escape through the holes in the bottom of the pot, as it gives them more space to go down through to the "right" depth. I hadn't thought of doing it that way, but had been trying to find deeper pots for some of them, which then become frustrating as they use so much more space and mix because they are so much wider to get the depth, when you don't need the width but only the depth. I'm very glad you mentioned it as it is a big help. Cheers. Paul Tyerman Canberra, Australia. USDA equivalent - Zone 8/9 mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Growing....
