Pots, Plastic Comments
POTS, PLASTIC: Plastic and Styrofoam Pots Washed and Sunned to Eliminate Virus It does no good whatever; the pots should be soaked for 10 minutes in Clorox solution 1:5. A73-709 0
POTS, PLASTIC: Soaking to Kill Virus Use Clorox one part to water nine parts; clean the pots of loose dirt before soaking because dirt impairs the viricidal properties of the Clorox. A72-1100 0
POTS, PLASTIC: Transparent Type Promotes algae growth inside; it is an advantage to see root growth inside but the light transmission leads to growth of algae and moss inside the pot so the advantage is lost. OR74-77; if the transparent pot is placed inside an opaque one the advantage is retained and roots can be inspected. RMH. 0
