    re: the pots that I use... I do grow all my plants using plastic pots... but I have all these 'fancy' ceramic and terracotta pots for use when displaying the flowering plants indoors. The SO won't allow the plants inside unless they are 'nicely' displayed in these pots.. issues with plastic

    That is awesome, Tim. And, I love the fact that you get to buy cool containers to display your blooming plants in the house. That is a plus!!

    Cheers,

    It is such a nice clear creamy white. Looks like vanilla ice cream. Wish I could smell it.
