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.
Thanks thats what i was reading i have a nice 11 inch pot the only reason i ask is to be sure I've been raising this plant for 3yrs now and it looks very nice a lot of new growth and a nice dark Green wish i could put pics up for you to see thanks
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!

How should I care for an orchid that has new growth on stems, but has roots growing out of the pot?

Can I plant my seeds anytime of year in a pot?I'd like to plant some seeds I didn't get planted in the spring. Can I plant them in a pot that I keep in inside later in the fall and outside now? I'm hoping I can prolong the amount of time I have fresh veggies. This should work right?

Is not Bonsai a form of torture on the plant?Because the natural growth of a plant is curtailed physically by us humans.
