Re: Speaking of pots...

Great info, Jim. I'm sorry I didn't have it a few months ago when a windstorm knocked over a 20-inch clay pot containing a Ficus alii. However, it is duly filed for future use.

Subject: [CHAT] Speaking of pots...

I found an easy way to mend cracks in clay pots and keep the cracks from getting larger or leaking. Clean the pots out, scrub along the crack line with soapy water, rinse, and dry. Then cut a piece of plastic window screen 2 inches wide and as long as the pot is deep. Spread a generous amount of Goop along the crack on the inside of the pot and imbed the screen in the Goop. When the Goop hardens, spread Goop over the entire screen and sort of trowel it so the entire screen is glued to the pot. Let it dry over night; re-plant it. I've saved a couple of large, expensive clay pots this way.
