Hello gmspinks. The clear containers were actually antiques that the owner found in his travels. He said that the interesting thing about them is that the handle is actually formed into the glass itself, and the edges of the container are formed in a way that they create an air tight seal, and they are also stack able (similar to Pyrex). He suggested checking your local antique marts, shows, or flea markets. Thank you for your interest in our project, and we hope you are successful in finding some containers similar to this. Have a wonderful day!

Prepare your pots. Before bringing any outdoor plant in, it’s important to check the pot for signs of insects that may be tagging along. The most thorough way to do this is by submerging the entire thing in a tub of water — if there are bugs living in the soil, they should appear in the water after a few minutes. If that happens, you may want to repot your plant and change the potting soil before bringing it in. Don’t do this for succulents, however, since they prefer to stay dry.Also spray your plants with a mild insecticidal soap a few days before bringing them in — look for one that is safe to use on organic gardens and around pets and kids; you don’t need anything too harsh for this job. In fact, some gardeners have luck using a simple solution of pure Ivory liquid soap and water. Make sure you spray the tops and bottoms of all of the leaves where bugs like to hang out.
