    No, I don't want large ones.

    When you know what you're going to have, let me know. I need to get new containers. The black lily baskets aren't working. Dish pans and oil pans aren't tall enough.

    I found some dishpans about 8 inches tall at dollar general, black too. Use the small cheap bungies with them

    I get them 6 for a dollar at Dollar Tree, and I literally bungee the lily in the pot, once the roots get big it is no longer needed. They come 3 colors in a bag and are about a foot long. Works like a charm to keep the lily in the pot. You might have to poke a hole in the side of the container for the hook if it does not have a lip.

    Ok, I didn't know what you were using them for. LOL That's a great idea. I wish I could bungie the dirt in the pan!

    Yea, me too. But I never figured a good way to do that. Between the spawning frogs and invading herons, it does happen. At least the cords help a good bit.

    I gave up on lilies... I don't wanna do a pot in the bottom of the pond and lose space. They don't seem to do well when I tie them to a stone and wrap a mesh around them. Ive never seen my lilies flower in the last two years but I don't fertilize them... I figured fish water should do it... my Irises are certainly not complaining. :(

    Lilies won't flower if the roots are not fed. No way around it.
