Mesh Drywall Tape for Drainhole?

tride26(6)February 28, 2011

will this work?

do you think it is safe for the plant?

it is easier to work with and faster to cut a small square for keeping my gritty mix in my pot.

also the tacky side of the tape makes it easy to stick to the bottom of the pot to keep it in place.

let me know if anyone else uses this and has had success.

Should work fine, as long as it won't rot.

It is glass fiber and should work fine. Al
