So I was gifted a large opaque plastic pot (long story) from OH when I bought from them at my past orchid show.
It's the same size as the terra cotta pot that my L. anceps is in now, which has been growing in coarse bark mix.
Today is repotting day before it comes inside, and I was thinking of repotting into either all leca (not s/h) or 50:50 leca and coarse bark.
My thinking in switching to the new plastic pot is that of course, it will not dry out as fast- as a lot of my plants do in my very dry (and extremely dry in the winter) environment.
I know these guys like perfect drainage and lots of air and water. And a good drying out between watering.
Hence, why I'm on the fence about switching.
Plus- being an opaque pot, it'll really cook in the summer when it's in full sun (which it LOVED this summer, while in the clay pot.)- but I could put it into a clay cache pot to keep it cooler.
But I STILL think that eventhough it's rupiculous, it will appreciate it's roots staying somewhat more humid in the plastic pot.
