PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I started a couple of Lotus Seeds this spring, and had read somewhere that nursery pots made a good choice for them. Now that I read your article I'm wondering. I pulled up the pots a few weeks ago and noticed that one of them had started growing out the holes in the bottom of the pot... is it just spreading? Not sure what I should do about it, if anything, but obviously that would be why a no holes container would be better!
Well, mine are planted in big no-hole containers since I don't have a pond. But I've heard they should be in a no-hole container in a pond, also, unless you want them to really take over. By the end of last summer, my 'Pretty Pink Princess Peyton' had filled pretty much its entire 22 inch pot.
