    if you are painting terracotta / clay pots they must be bone dry and free of any soil/dirt. And once painted they will not 'breath', so you may be limited as to the types of plants you use.

      Thanks, will be working mostly with plastic or foam type pots. I know with the foam paint can sort of dissolve it so will use what's compatible. Thanks for your help
