The issue is, many of them *say* reusable, but are made out of cheap plastic that only lasts two or three years and cracks easily.
Some even say, "reusable and recyclable" - but if they are oh so reusable, why would I need to recycle them? =P
I agree that those you have purchased look much better than the cheaper pots and should last several years.
I saw that one person is going to try silicone, but I have doubts that those will work well. They have silicone baking pans and when I've seen on TV people trying to get their goods out of those they are peeled off because the silicone is "sticky" and the soil core having roots grown around it would expand putting pressure on the silicone. ALSO, I've worked with and around a lot of silicone and I would NEVER use silicone for anything that goes into an oven. I don't care what they say, it all out-gases and you can bet your life it goes into the food. Remember that the old TEFLON pans were also supposed to be SAFE and many people later found out that they were NOT safe at all?
Any way, I just thought I'd give people links to go search for what they wanted/needed and could afford in the way of seeding pots.
