Dirt Bags arrived today!

Las Vegas, NV(Zone 9b)

I've been delaying putting out my plumerias until I got these. They seem to be doing fine. The tips are just now starting to grow.

I opted to go with seven gallon bags out of necessity. The Dirt Bags are fairly short given their total size. About as tall as a traditional 5. Which is what mine are in now, though they have shrunk down in the pot. I believe from worms (I introduced) eating the planting material. I have stopped putting worms in my potted plants because the resulting soil does not seem to hold moisture well. And it sinks giving less room for root development. I have been contemplating how to evict the worms and all i've come up with is flooding them out. I'm open to other suggestions.

Well, it's time to get dirty!

Oops. not quite ready. Should I root prune my plumerias before transplanting? If so, how and what kind of care do they need after?

Thanks, David
