Making plastic pots more plant-friendly...?
I've been reading this morning on the benefit of clay / terra cotta pots vs. plastic pots. Unfortunately, I have a ton of larger plastic pots but very few larger clay pots.
Could the air exchange - gas transfer - aeration issue be helped by putting many little holes in the sides of the plastic pots? For example, taking a heated nail and poking a many, many holes in the sides?
Random observation: I have a strawberry plant in a plastic pot that recently cracked up the side. It seemed to shoot out a ton of new growth since I noticed the crack.
