Komodo Dragon

old_dirt(5b)June 20, 2012

I just received a small komodo dragon and would like to make it a center piece planted in a container. Iknow it is a giant, so how large of a container should I use and how often would I have to repot to a larger container? Would I need to take any winter precautions in zone 5? I've never done any container plantings. I thought about a 1/2 whiskey barrel or tall vase shaped container...

Any suggestions would be appreciated...

how big is small ..???

if it is 4 inches.. i would pot it into a quart .. and tip it out into my hand once a month..

and as the roots hit the side.. and grew down.. when the roots hit the bottom..

i would up pot to a gallon ...

and then a 2 gallon .. next year??

and then.. probably into a whiskey barrel ...

the pots can be sunk in the whiskey barrel in the mean time ...

in MI.. winter storage will be your biggest issue on survival..
