Do you think a 5 gallon bucket would work better then the little vase I have it now?? At least until I can plant it in the ground or find a fatter pot??😅🤔

@alysha yes it would work but plz put a few holes in the bottom so u can water it throughly and also put it up on something where it can breathe from the bottom. It will help with air circulation. U don't want it to root. R u bringing it in or leaving it outside?

U need to give it a really bright window where it can stay warm. After u Repot it and water..Don't water it again until u can feel atleast to the 2nd knuckle on pointer finger it really dry,the just give it about 2 cups of water around the outer edge of where u know roots r. This will keep it dormant enough that come Spring it will take off growing again.😍 @alysha

@treefrog44 I like the idea of just water too. Maybe after I can get mine to create some more. I might give that a try... 🤔💚🌱🤗😁

No worries you had to restart a lot of your stuff due to excessive amount of rains etc. Or move them. Plus really it's not a real competition unless we are all using same soil, plants, food and water type so guess what we all win cus they are living and all growing big and strong. Xoxoxox

One set of mine is taller than me and I'm 5'4" and the leaves are bigger than my head. All are the same kind so guess they like this one spot better. @Acetaker @ShelleySnyder
