Growing in mesh pots

9 years ago

Has anyone else tried this? Bonsai growers will sometimes grow their trees in plastic colanders in order to get more air to the root system. I've never tried it before, but thought I'd experiment on a Bursera fagaroides cutting that has been growing in a clay pot for a few years now. I picked up a couple 9x9x5 mesh pots from my local hydro shop. The holes were still a little large, so I had to line it with fiberglass insect screen. I'll compare its growth to the mother plant this summer, and see if there's any difference.
