Maid of Orleans pot size and growth rate?
I bought a MOO last fall that I am in love with and am very eager to see grow and flower. It was about 5" tall and had one main stem, came in a 4" pot. I put it in a pot that is a giant teacup, 10" wide and 7" deep - it has a saucer glued to the bottom. I kept it inside for a few weeks but it was very unhappy with yellowing leaves that started getting wholes in them. So... I put it outside where it overwintered fine, no new growth, basically stopped in time. Now it looks healthy, it has 2 new stems and new leaves, but it seems to be growing at an excruciatingly slow rate. It is about 7" tall. It is sharing the pot with some dianthus planted this winter, and the pot is on a south facing balcony that gets 10-12 hours of sun a day in spring/summer.
My questions are mainly:
1) Is the pot big enough for it? If so, when should I repot it and to what size pot?
2) How fast should it be growing, and when should I expect it to flower?
3) Is the fact the pot has a saucer glued to the bottom a problem?
Thanks so much for any tips, I am looking forward to doing anything I can to increase my chances of seeing it thrive.
