Four wetland species, Canna flaccida (canna), Iris versicolor (iris), Spartinia alterniflora (smooth cord grass), and Juncus effusus (rush), were planted into five different trade gallon container types. The container types used were no hole pots, four holes at the bottom of the pot, four holes half way up the side wall of the pot, four holes three-quarters of the way up the side wall of the pot, and pot-in-pot which consisted of trade gallon growing pots with four holes at the bottom of the pot placed inside a full gallon socket pot with no holes. Canna visual shoot and root rating were highest for the pot-in-pot treatment. Rush pot-in-pot plants had the highest growth indices, visual shoot, and root ratings compared to the remaining four pot types. Shoot count for iris was highest for the pot-in-pot containers. Container hole position did influence growth of smooth cord grass.
