hi, I joined to see if anyone could help me with a bottle palm that has outgrown any pot I can find for it. It's about 9-10 ft tall now and it's poor plastic pot (24 in) is hanging on by the the rim. Otherwise split open completely on one side. Does anyone know where I can find at least a 30 in diameter pot (preferably 36 in) for no more than 200 dollars?? I've looked online but am looking at 500 dollars minimum, it looks like.
Thanks so much for your help :)

Depending on where it is, you could look at some rubbermaid stock tanks. Or google making cement planters.

Go to a local nursery that sells trees. They often have large plastic planters just stacked up in back, waiting to be hauled off. You could also try a big box store that has a nursery department.

Or you could make one out of old railway sleepers usually available from reclamation yards
