Default Re: Large containers with no drainage holes

That is actually caller a planter by the manufacturer. ... Plants have different water drainage needs. Most all need to drain. Put the plant into a pot that meets the plant's drain needs. Then set the potted plant into the planter. This is how to have decorative planters and be able to use the cheap nursery pot that the plants came in; or not getting your hands dirty by having to repot new plants. ... In the case of potted bananas, place bricks (something) in the bottom of the planter to raise the pot drainage hole above the water line. ...It's easy when used correctly.
