How many

whip1 Zone 5 NE OhioApril 10, 2007

I have an 18 inch square pot that I want to grow canna in. It's my first try with pots. I'm growing wyoming and pretoria. How many tubers should I put in each pot?

I would plant no more than 2 or 3 in a pot that small.

I have had a 22" diameter pot busting at the seams in September from a 3 eyed, single rhizome planted in May!

good luck

Thanks Joe! When in the pots, do you recomend keeping them in an almost bog like condition? I know to let them start in a drier soil, but once they start to grow, do you flood them?

I don't flood mine but I do water every chance I get. I know others who close the drain holes and keep them soaked.
