I finally ordered some clear pots and recieved them this AM. I wish I had ordered some a *long* time ago. What a bonus to see how the plants are doing in the medium. I repotted some orchid that I had no clue if they were growing any roots (discount shelf a while ago). I was pretty shocked to see that roots in 3 of the plants completely filled the pot (no wonder there were so many arial roots). It looked like that one post Sue posted with the roots so dense it looked like a cup of spaghetti. So to make a short story long, the clear pots should take alot of the guesswork out of when to water.
