Horticultural Concerns with Aluminum Pots?

Hello All,

Is there any horticultural concerns with growing a tree in an aluminum pot? I have been welding aluminum for work and have been considering making a few ornate pots with the extra aluminum.


Hi @StevenHenry9
I asked a similar question about steel pots. Seems the biggest concern is thermal conductivity- cooking the roots. I’m planning on lineing my pot with thin (1-2mm) styrofoam.

Copy that! Thank you.
