Repotting Newly Acquired Plants?

Posted by cindylouhoo 6MidTN (My Page) on

I was able to pick up some healthy looking 3 inch plastic pots at Lowe's on their clearance rack. I picked up what was labeled as Philodendron ("Micans"), Nephthytis ("Holly" or Arrowhead Vine), Maiden Hair Fern, and Ivy ("Spearpoint") for $1 - $1.50 each.
These are all the Exotic Angel brand plants that they carry.
I have some decorative containers that I can put them in and take them out of for watering. Just wondering if this is OK for now and worry about repotting later, or do I need to go ahead and find some permanent pots for them?

I've not had that fern or ivy before, but the other two won't mind at all. Why were they on clearance, got too dry?

purpleinopp, I'm not sure why they were clearance plants. The soil was damp when I bought them. My Lowe's is pretty good about clearing out older plants for the new stock. All these seemed healthy.

Cool, lucky deal!
