    Default Square or Round?

    I am just curious as to what type of pot shape you prefer and why?

    I like both, but prefer round for the simple reason that I can find decorative pots much easier that square decoratives.

    I like both. But I do find round pots easier to fit into those fancy decorative pots! For some reason, there seem to be a lot more round pots out there in the stores...

    Squares for all the Onc. Intergenerics, Mtssa, Dens, Brassia, mini Catts
    Deep Square for the Phrags
    Rounds for all the Phals, Paph, large Catts

    And kewpie is correct, when space is an issue, squares for everyone.
