    About my Dracaena Compacta

    Hi everyone I was trying to ask and look up about what pot size would be best for my Dracaena when it starts getting big I have it in a 8 inch pot now and its doing fine but I see the sides of the plants are looking very tight

    Many say that Dracaena plants like to be root bound in small pots.  At the same time most gardeners will tell you that no plant likes to be root bound and that it will prevent much new growth or flowering (not that this plant flowers very much).  If the sides look very tight and the pot seems filled with roots it would seem a good time to re-pot.  There are plants that do better without too much extra room for their roots to expand and this is one of them so I might recommend graduating just to a 10 inch pot so as not to disturb the growing cycle of the plant or cause it shock by the fast growth after a period of very slow growth.  Good luck.

      Happy to help.  I'd love to see your plant if you can manage to get pictures of it uploaded.  They are incredible and some of the varieties are so massive that they just astound me!  Have fun!
