Default Source for bulk clear and slotted plastic pots

I'm running out of 3 sizes of clear plastic pots I purchased in volume about 15 years ago. I don't recall the supplier's name. They are:

2-1/4" square - Markings "Water Dance"
3-1/4" square - Markings "Farrand/Jardinier 3-1/4" "
5 inch round slotted pot with a raised perforated center. Marking: "3"

Searching for a seller of these pots or similar, all I find is sellers offering small quantities at extremely high prices or manufacturers that sell by the crate. I've written several of them asking about volume purchases to no avail. I need hundreds or thousands, not tens.

Anyone have a good lead on where I might find pots like these?

They are not one of the 4-5 sellers I wrote, so I'll check them out.

Have you consider Chula Orchids? Their website is having some image issues at the moment, but I have emailed them about it.

Thanks for the tip, Ray. I wrote Chula a couple weeks ago. They have some pots in volume, but not the ones I inquired about.



There must be an Aircone distributor somewhere. None of the people who sell them seem to buy in quantity.

The folks who used to own Kelley’s Korner own the molds and were the wholesale distributors of Rands Aircone pots. I’d bet that of you contact kkorchids, they could arrange a bulk purchase.

Try your local hydroponics store. They are more likely to offer net pots, rather than slotted pots.

Especially good to find are hydroponics stores that are capable of offering advice on more than just growing "recreational herbs". One near me also seems to know at least something about orchids and conventional vegetables. Recreational herbs are still a client focus though.

There are few, if any, hydroponics stores here in Mississippi, probably because the recreational herb fad is not a 'thing' here.

I haven't looked at their catalog for years, but try Stuewe & Sons. Everything is online. Case size orders minimum.
