I have been very happy with the fiberglass pots that are now about 7 years old. I purchased them from the garden center (Planta y Jardian)on the transversal road

They have pots of every size, and shape, including very large pots.

I have two terracotta planters, and two things I have found. They need to be coated inside, to keep the water from leach out, and they also will turn black from mold when the clay gets wet.

just remembered, there is a good size shop right on 65. from you house, get ib 11, turn left on 65. It will be pretty close to the corner.

Has a large selection of just about everything. Have seen many different size pieces of pottery.

the guy on 1 entre 20 y 25 is much cheaper for terracota (called barro) and talavera than the places on 65. you can bargain with all so if you are buying some furniture or accessories, you can probably get the price down in all places. bought my talavera from the guy on 1.

You do know that terracotta will not survive the weather conditions of the island for half as long as plastic or fiberglass. I use plastic and just paint them every now and then.

that is true. the barro i will be using will be for sconces on my rock wall under the palapa.... should be ok there for a while.
my plastic pots have held up pretty well in the yard exposed to the sun. but nowhere near as nicely as talavera will last.
