I just got this beauty last week and got ready to pot it today. But after looking it up I'm a little unsure about what container to plant it in. Because the leaves are so small, thin, and delicate looking (although it does have some nasty thorns!) I assumed it would stay smallish, but in reading about it I find it can get to be a up to 60 plus feet! As it grows it will develop round stems and the leaves will grow off of them. Right now it is in a 3" pot, is a lovely lime green, and has several flower buds. Here's the DG link: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/63972/#b
I'm hoping some of you have experience with it and can help me decide what to plant it in. I was going to plant it in the pot shown and am wondering if I root prune every year or two, say by 30%, will I be able to keep it to say 18" tall?
Thanks for any information.
P.S. Sorry it's upside down. I can't for the life of me get any photos posted on DG that are right side up lately. Haven't been able to figure out what to do.
Interesting... if I drag your upside down image to my desktop and open it there, it pops up in the right orientation (with the tags on the bottom corner). I have no idea why it gets flipped for the forum.
The combination you've chosen looks great to me, but I have no experience growing that plant. I would imagine it has to be in the ground to reach 60 feet and will bonsai if it stays in a little pot.
