Is my dictum for this year, at least for the top patio...
|This Agave geminiflora is looking fabulous. It deserves the the dignity of a nicer looking pot.|
However I can't keep denying to myself that those cheap nursery plastic pots don't bother me. Most of the key plants on display then were in those plastic pots and if I'm going to do a similar display again this year I wouldn't be able to ignore/tolerate them this time.
So why did I keep them in plastic pots when replacing them with glazed ones were easy enough?
Answer: because plastic pots are light.
Plastic pots have there uses and many advantages too, one of which is being light hence easy to move. With most of our succulents and xerophytes not hardy enough to remain outside all year round they will need shifting indoors before winter sets in. The bigger specimens are tricky enough as they are to shift and it'll even be more difficult if they are in heavy pots.
|Both Agave geminiflora and Agave ocahui will have new glazed pots this year|
