Hello, I am Matt and this is my first post to the forum. I have just started a collection of indoor plants and I had some concerns. First off I have a Pachira, Ficus Benjamina, a few assorted succlents and a couple of herbs. All the plants are doing well, and even the Ficus has been growing without any leaf drop or other problems (which I am happy about because I heard they can be very troublesome). The concern I am having is with my pots. I have bought decorative pots, but none of them have drain holes in the bottom (except for the succulents). I have been reading that it is almost guaranteed to kill the plant, but I don't like the idea of having ugly plastic trays under all my pots in order to catch the water. I have heard that if you place rocks at the bottom of the pot you can do without drain holes. Is this a good solution? or is it just something to do if it is the only option? Any other suggestions about what I can do to prevent root rot with my current pots would be great. I have been very careful when watering them to avoid this problem and so far everything has been fine, but I want to prevent any future troubles I may have.
