Last time, Nicotina Sylvestris

greyandamyMay 13, 2011

Hi Everyone!

I know it's far from ideal, but I'm thinking of growing one Nicotina Sylvestris in a container. I KNOW they get BIG, anywhere from 3-5 feet. And obviously a container would constrict that. I DID post this on container forum, but no replies. Hope I'm not double posting???

Question, my last largest container is 18" diameter, 15" deep. Is that too small for a plant of this size? I know it would need daily watering (once weather comes and it gets potbound) and regular fertilizing. Please let me know of any ideas.

THANKS so much!!

It should work perfectly. I have grown very large nicotiana in 12" pots. Just be ready to water frequently, keep it out of heavy winds and enjoy the beauty and fragrance :-)
