Trying to find an Lotus style pot, 18"-20" wide, etc.

Post  SMJ76 on Mon Jul 29, 2013 10:54 pm

Running into issues with trying to find a good sized pot for a bald cypress.  
Was looking for a large sized orchid style pot, but have only found one and its a little higher than I'm looking to pay.  I'm sure they are out there but where I simply don't know.  Needs to be at least 18" wide 12" wide, 3-5" deep.  That would work.  Would be more than happy to pick up a good used one.

Thanks in advance

The Orchid style pot in this case would be a terra cotta bulb pot (1/2 as deep and wide) 12 wide x 6 deep for example, but also with wide drainage slots in the side, probably 4 to 6 such slots minimum.

I might have one, I will have to look, but I am in Florida and just the shipping would be expensive.

I'm with Russell on this one.

18 wide by 12 length by 3 - 5 deep sounds like a rectangular bonsai pot to me.

I'd love to see what Billy has, but a wooden grow box with the dimensions you require might be the thing you need. Just drill some side holes.

Good luck in your search. Wish I had more info.

Sorry fellas, I meant Lotus not orchid. Rolling Eyes 
Basically, the shape of a lotus. At least that's what I've seen them referred to.

Saw that one, wasn't to sure the depth was right for my needs. Might be.
Saw this earlier today, wonderful style, wish I had a nice slanting tree to put into it!

Billy,

They have some nice ones! Do they only deal with bulk orders or wholesale orders, or do they sell and ship to the public too? I guess I could ask them but you mentioned you deal with them so I wanted to ask you first.
