poppies
    #3998826 - 04/01/05 06:28 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

i am planning on planting some poppies in my new appartment the problem is i dont know when i will have it yet hopfully the next couple of months for the meentime it is possible to buy some ceramic pots my question is how big should the pots be? can i use the kind that people hang on there window-cill you know those long rectangular ones or are they to small,
what diameter of pots and depth would you recommend,
also when do i plant them over here where i live it is still covered in snow but that should clear up by next month meanwhile i can grow them inside there is a decent amount of sunlite,
i am plan to make a harvest this summer (july),
i heard that the plants mature depending on the length of the days and over here where i live (northern hemisphere close to the arctic circle) summertime the sun doesent set so does that meen that my plants will mature faster,
BTW even though i live so far up north summer time still gets pretty hot over here around 30 degres celcius and its pretty humid aswell i dont know if thats good or not,
what strain/ variety would you recomend for fast maturing and maximum latex yeild,
p.s.- im not planing on moving the plants from the pots so keep that in mind.

I'm growing a bunch of them in a couple of 10" or so wide pots. I'd say those windowsill thingies are enough (if they're the size i'm thinking about).

As far as i understood, poppy roots like to grow superficially and towards the sides, so width should be more important than depth.

they will be grown outdoors in my balcony that is
i hope your right about me only needing 10" because thats all i can afford space wise,
the windowsill pots im talking about are - 6" x 18" and depth 5" is this enough or should i get bigger ones and how many plants should i let mature in one of those or in another one,
im not sure yet but if i plant them in the windowsill pots i can have around 12 pots how much opium can i get from that?

I will take a pic of my pots. I realize my conditions are less than ideal. Growing them on a balcony too.
Mine haven't flowered yet so i'm not positive pots this size actually work, but they seem to be doing fine so far.

Than you can have an idea. Keep in mind though that it's the first time i grow poppies and they haven't flowered yet, so i dunno if they will give good yields or not.

You won't have large amounts of opium in such a small sized plot, but i think you'll get at least a few doses of poppy tea.

EDIT:

Those are two 10" wide X 8" deep round pots, the first one has 2 large poppy plants and a bunch of random wildflowers i bought in Ireland (the poppies are overwhelming them).
The second one - in the back - has 5 poppy plants, not as large as the ones w/ the wildflowers but still considerably large (and growing fast).

I do fertilize them at full strength every week as their rootspace is so small...

oh ok, cool...

as for an idea of the yield that i know of... from a reliable book ive read it says a 10 foot by 10 foot plot of poppies would produce roughly 15 grams of opium
