Plastic orchid pots are a staple of any orchid grower because repotting orchids is a regular and critical part of their health and beauty. Clear plastic pots have gained popularity for orchids in part because one can see what's going on with roots and moisture content. On the other hand, non-clear plastic pots have been used from the start because they look great with plants in them and they are much less susceptible to algae growth on the inside, the way a clear orchid pot is.
Good drainage and multiple holes are critical for orchids because one wants to avoid roots standing in water or sopping wet media; airy environments are what orchids love. At rePotme.com orchid supply we carry a full line of clear orchid pots in a variety of sizes, and even multiple side slotted orchid pots that are the most drainage and air friendly orchid pots we have seen.
White pots will be recognized by seasoned orchidists as the same type used over the years before the clear type started appearing. They have multiple drainage holes in the bottom and also cut-outs at the side bottoms for even more air and drainage. We love these white orchid pots because they are quite rigid, and they look sharp all by themselves.
We do still use clear orchid pots too, particularly when we want to see what is happening with roots and moisture, with young seedlings and when we want to get light to the roots. The white pots are our preference for everyday planting, for display purposes (if the plant isn't already in one of our ceramic orchid pots with a crystal clear orchid pot as a liner), and when we are wanting a rigid orchid pot that is easy to carry and transport.
Crystal Clear Orchid Pots
We have searched far and wide to find what we think are superior crystal clear orchid pots that are as functional as they are attractive. We have clear orchid pots available in four sizes, 4", 5", 6" and 8". Here are the details: First, each of our clear pots has to offer great drainage ability and these fit the bill with a multi level base of 9 holes and 6 ported areas that themselves have 3 holes in them. The holes in the ported areas are at a higher level than the 6 holes in the base and this is what creates the double drainage functionality that prevents water pooling. Keeping roots healthy is critical and good drainage with the ability for air to enter is a must. Again, these pots make the grade. Each pot has a nice rolled lip for handling and transport. Our original rePotme clear plastic pots are distinguished by the surprising clarity or "see through" aspect of the plastic.
Clear Slotted Orchid Pots
Our clear plastic slotted orchid pots are available now in a variety of sizes, from the 3" round, 4" round, 5" round up to and including our original 6" round slot pot. Our 3", 4" and 6" are quite similar in design from a side and bottom slot perspective. The 5" slot pot is unique in that it has both wider slots in the bottom, and also holes in the bottom. All of these clear slotted pots have slots cut into the sides and the base for increased air flow and drainage.
The original 6" slot pot from rePotme still comes with the substantial top outer rim, while the smaller ones each have less rim, or in the case of the baby 3", no rim at all. Each of them are sturdy pots, clear, but not "crystal clear" like our original clear plastic pots available in sizes ranging from 4" all the way up to 8". Don't forget about the rePotme white plastic orchid pots too, ranging in size from 4" all the way up to the giant 10" grand daddy. All of our pots are designed with the orchidist in mind, plenty of drainage, multiple ports, slots, holes and features for aeration and great drainage for healthy roots and happy orchids.
Square Orchid Pots
We have a nice selection of square plastic orchid pots, in clear and in white. These are available in sizes ranging from the 2" Aircone up to the 4 1/2" white multi-level base with built-in slots for plant labels.
You can also choose our latest clear 3 1/4" square with its great open pattern at the bottom for superior drainage and airflow.
The 3 1/2" square white is also an option as a nice sturdy pot for small plants and seedlings. It has a slightly raised center at the base with 4 unique bottom side cut ports with holes for drainage and airflow. The 4 1/2" square white is our largest square plastic pot and has wonderful drainage features built into the base.
White Orchid Pots
We are pleased to carry a full line of beautiful white plastic orchid pots for your orchids!!
Our white orchid pots will be recognized by seasoned orchidists as the same type used over the years before the clear type started appearing. They have multiple drainage holes in the bottom and also cut-outs at the side bottoms for even more air and drainage. We love these orchid pots because they are fairly rigid, they look sharp all by themselves, and they cut down on algae growth which is common on the inside of clear pots. Unlike dark nursery pots, white orchid pots are slightly translucent and likely provide some light to orchid roots for photosynthesis.
The old fashioned white pot, clean, sturdy and beautiful in any setting. Clear pots have their place too, and once you get your watering cycle figured out, the pure white pot is a pleasure to use and to look at.
Net Orchid Pots
Net pots provide extra aeration for roots when used upside down in the bottom of a large pot. Our net pots are a great fit in the bottom of a pot, or used alone, whichever you prefer.
