I'm considering the switch from plastic pots to a biodegradable type, and I'm particularly interested in the rice straw/coir blended ones. I would like to start by making the switch for my 4" pots that I sell tomato plants in (about 2000/year). Is anyone else using a biodegradable pot? If so, what type and what are your thoughts? Performance differences when compared to plastic? greater water needs? brands/types you like? to avoid? My current system works very well, my plants are the nicest around, I just hate using all that plastic but I'm nervous about making a major alteration to my system. Any thoughts??
