Living in Arizona it can be difficult to maintain proper moisture and aeration in planters but with these discs the problem has basically been solved. I like the fact that not as much soil is needed, the holes at the bottom allow for air and moisture to pass through slowly so root rot is not a problem. I'm able to keep a fairly consistent moisture level now so my plants are healthier and produce more blooms. I purchased these in 17 & 18" discs. I had a little bit of the problem in the beginning deciding which diameter disc would work best but I figured it out. I would definitely recommend.
I like this shape the best because it is all pot. There is no attached saucer like the Bloom Lucca or the Tahoe or the Saturn and the potting soil goes all the way to the bottom. Some of the other Bloom pots say that they are 14", 15" or 16" but that saucer at the bottom takes up some of the growing room. I actually bought these to transplant some of my other plants that need more room to spread not only for the roots, but at the top. I really love all the Bloem planters I have bought though. They are very sturdy and easy to work with. The Posy pot has little scored round circles in the bottom so you will have to push those out to make drainage holes in the bottom. Most of the others already have those. I used a knife and it took a few minutes, but it was not hard. I would buy these again in an even larger size if I found the right colors. These are discontinued colors. I found Overstock to have great prices on these pots especially if you buy them in groups of 6 or 8 at a time. I would not hesitate to buy again, and am hoping that they come out with a 30 or 32" pot since I need to replant a little lemon tree. I have had that tree in a large plastic pot for about 20 years and it has held up fine, but I wanted to change out the terra-cotta color.
