    Why is that true, Ron? Do they grow long roots, deep into the medium?

    Yes, the roots are long and stiff. They are even extending out the bottom holes of these 9" tall pots.

    There are some stunning oriental clay pots designed just for these species. Like Neof. these are treated like an art form in the orient.
