Dear Dr. Scott,

You can place some large stones on top of the soil, or place the pots into larger heavy terra cotta pots, with stones added on the sides and on top for good measure..

Can you tell us a little about the endangered plants, orchids and carnivorous for example, and endangered ecosystems in the Endangered Lands Program?

Good Morning:  I was wondering if any of you enlightened growers have a simple remedy for the ongoing problem of my Amorphophallus pots in larger pots (7-20 gal) being prone to 'tipping' over once the large leaves develop.  The plants are so top-heavy that anytime there is a strong breeze or even heavy rain, the pots tend to tip over, damaging the plants and spilling out soil/fertilizer.  Short of driving a stake next to each pot and tying them off, I don't know what to do?
