All pot sizes use a "deeper than wide" profile.
1)"Aircone pots have made a big difference in growing orchids for us. This is particularly true for terrestrial orchids such as Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium. The pots hold water well while providing air to the core of the pot which helps prevent root rot. They are also built with quality; the pots are sturdy and can be re-used many times over. Highly recommended!" J. Fischer ~ Orchids Ltd.
2)" I just repotted close to 30 orchids... I used nothing but Rand's Aircone Pots. Easy to use and healthy for the plant. They take very little space since they are square and fit close together. I have used these pots for several years now and I have you to thank for. The deep dimple allows great aeration throughout the root system. The clear plastic gives me an easy access to the roots and the medium. I do believe that my plants have grown more vigorously and with less root damage and decay since I started using Rand's Aircone Pots. What can I say except that I am hooked on them." A. Chepjian ~ Orchid Grower
3)"These are such great pots! One of the biggest hurdles in cultivating Orchids is determining when they need to be watered. Your Aircone Pots take the guesswork out of growing; a quick glance is all that is needed to see whether there's still moisture inside the pot!"D. Norton ~ Mountain Orchids
4)"Rands Aircone pots are sturdy, hard to tip over, and long lasting. Epiphytes benefit from the additional light and air from the cone in the center. Once my customers try them, they usually order more! We've sold them for years, hope they keep making them!" N. Roberts ~ Roberts Flower Supply
5)"Air flow to the root system is the most important aspect of successful orchid growing, and many growers lose their plants by suffocating the roots in a stifling pot environment. Aircone pots, with their unique design, virtually eliminate that as a concern by significantly enhancing the "breathability" of the potting medium. In my 40+ years of orchid growing, I have experimented with many ways to improve my growing, and Aircone pots have truly helped a great deal."R. Barkalow ~ First Rays, LLC
6)Rand’s Aircone Pots are the pot I always recommend when asked what our best orchid pot is. They are much stronger than other varieties, and extremely sturdy so they don’t tip over. When potting media sits in water it will quickly deteriorate, damaging the roots and health of your orchid. The unique tapered bottom and large slots of aircone pots provide maximum drainage, allowing the water to easily exit down away from your media. I use these for my orchids, and recommend them for all serious orchid growers. They are the best pot on the market!" D. Yerdon ~ Kelley’s Korner Orchid Supplies
