I came across some new hydroponics pots online that I decided to try. I think I mentioned before that the ones from FirstRays are cracking in the hot dry desert environment. These are from Interior Water Gardens and I haven't planted in them yet but am hopeful. They have a "meter" that tells you when to water and an interior and exterior decorative pot. I got 3 smaller sizes but they have larger ones too. I hope this type of plastic holds up better.
The come as a "kit" with the "growing medium" (like PrimeAgra) included. I called them and they sent them to me without the medium (I have lots of PrimeAgra) and deducted the cost and shipping. Annie at Interior Water Gardens is very helpful. The number is 1-888-476-9493.
