I'd rather plant in clay, Roberta. I used to be able to find clay "rose pots," which are deeper. I can't find those anymore. Suggestions on that? Google hasn't been helpful. Kellie's Korner is out of stock, too.

@ Charlesf6:

Since nobody else did, I will toot my own horn (and I am reasonably close to you, depending upon where in NY you are located).

I do not have an on-line store as such, since I rarely have more than a few plants of each item. However, I do have a good number of Cymbidium available, ranging from seedlings of own breeding, through assorted meristems and divisions of my own select plants (mostly pendulous types).

If you send me a PM or email with an outline of the types you are looking for, I will let you know what I have available.

Best,
Kim

I actually mostly just use generic plastic pots - 1 gallon for modest sized Cyms, 2-gallon for bigger ones. Once they outgrow the 2-gallon pots, I divide them... getting too old to wrestle with larger gut-busters. I got a bunch of the tall Asian Cymbidium pots from a fellow orchid club member awhile back, the plants really love them. But they do just fine in the generic ones too. Clay has the advantage of weight - because some of them get rather top heavy. One of my tricks is to just drop the plastic-potted plant into a clay pot when I get tired of picking it up after toppling.

While I am a fan of clay pots for Cattleya, I hardly ever use clay for Cymbidiums (I have exactly 2, out of 1000+ plants). Primarily due to the water/moisture demand of Cymbidiums, which really should never be allowed to dry out; secondarily due to weight.

I have special deep 4" pots for seedlings/miniatures, and 1 gallon pots for BS plants. If I need 2 gallon or larger, I go to a local garden center and rummage their used pot pile.

I can buy new pots wholesale, but then I must buy a full carton of that size, and I very rarely need 50-150 pots each of the larger sizes.

Totally understand that. A little bleach water works wonders.
