Anyone know where to get clear plastic pots for orchids? They are flexible, and you can see the roots growing in them.
Something like these. I can also diy with those coke bottles, but I don't really drink soda much, and they seem quite stiff.

I used a 4 inch clear plastic container which can be bought at less than S$3 for 10 pieces.

You will need to diy some drainage holes. It should be able to last around 2 years not under direct hot sun.

Yes. Model no: SKP-30 which has the right height for orchid as compared with those used by the local hawkers for take away foods.

Alternatively, you may try the following link to buy those clear orchid pots which you actually wanted{

Am too lazy to DIY pots :blink:/>, as I wanted transparent ones with holes, got these instead for some new seedlings I got :

It's about SGD 1 each, about 8 days arrival. It's similar to those that phal nurseries use, but stronger stiffer material with good reusability, and yet flexible - i.e. easy to take out plant inside by pressing around pot. I also like the holes, helps a lot in air flow.
