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... 🤔💚🌱🤗😁
