Buy a paper punch it will penetrate the edge of the pot for easy tying too. That way you can LST them all you wantI will keep this in mind for my next grow. I had originally purchased fabric pots but thought they would suck for trying to tie plants down to and figured plastic pots would be better for long-term use. I did not really consider other factors. I think figuring out how often to water my plants will be my biggest struggle as a new grower. It is so hard to tell when the soil is dry and when it is wet.
