Pot size for brug?

mad_about_mickey(**7* *N.C.)June 17, 2008

I have one that finally grew!! Now it is about 3-4 ft tall and is in a 15'' wide by 14 '' tall plastic pot. Should/could it be put in ground, or should i move it to a bigger pot? I picked it up at the spring swap. Don't know from who, but I have such hopes for this one...The last one I had had gorgeous peach flowers and I loved it. Was so beautiful and smelled good. Sadly, it didn't survive the winter in the garage `sigh`. That one I had put in the ground early. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

With brugs, the bigger the pot the better. I've had 2 in huge pots 2 winters now in our unheated basement and they've done great. In fact this past year one bloomed most of the winter down there! You have to feed them a lot and of course they are thirsty devils in the summer. Just keep them barely watered in winter. I underplant mine with low stuff since they are leggy. Also added some mina lobata in one pot last year and morning glory in the other pot and that worked really nicely.

They are distant relatives to tomatoes and all of them will fill any sized pot with mats of tiny roots. After a few years if you decide to repot it, it is kind of amazing the way the whole root/soil ball comes out in one big chunk - shaped just like the inside of the pot.
