Does anyone know the manufacturer of the deep 3.5" aircone pots that are popular with commercial growers? The only markings on them are a recycle number and the letter H, not much to go off of in google.

@Tony you can turn any standard pot into a “punt pot” (a “punt” is the depression in the bottom of a bottle) by inverting a small net pot in the bottom. Google “small net pot” and you’ll see a bunch.

It turns out they're a custom job, a Hawaiian grower I know is going to hook me up with a case.

I used to do that with clay pots back in the day, but with what it would cost to do that I would probably be spending as much as I do now on Rand aircones. The case of these pots will cut my cost per pot from $1.40 to .43 cents for my most used size.

I appreciate that but I'll be in good shape with the case on the way, my collection is decent sized but not "burn through a case of 800 pots in no time" big.
