What size pots should I buy?
    #1821903 - 08/17/03 04:24 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I'm new to growing indoors, so I have no experince with pot sizes. I also have only so much floor space, so it helps to be able to know if I can space them out.

My current plans are for:

2 salvia divinorum
1 wild dagga
1-4 sceletium

And possibly at some point a heimia salicifolia and a calea zacatechichi if I have room/money/time. I plan on making a bunch of cuttings of salvia too. Anyway, approxmetly how big of pots do these things need? What has worked for you?

use your common sense man! =)
for salvia cuttings you can use small pots at first or to plant many in a larger one. :wink:

Common sense would tell me to put them in bigger pots at first so I wouldnt have to transplant them later...but hey, thats just me.

Salvia likes big pots, for a mature plant I wouldn't have it in anything smaller than an 8" clay pot...dunno about the others.

8" clay pots are defintely doable. I'd really love to expand and have 5 or 6 of each going. I was just afriad of having to use those huge outdoor planters. Now I just have to choose between Thrive Alive and Miracid as a fertilizer.

if you want your salvias tall you need to give it a nice pot indeed!
i go with plastic because i have to water less frequently (salvia).
