Will a tree ever grow healthy in a pot
My dream is to have a big tree on my terrace. I bought the biggest pot I could find and put a 2,5 meter (100 inches) laurel ficus tree in it. First it lost half of the leaves, which is common when repotting. But in one year it has not grown anything at all and is still "skinny".
- Can a tree ever grow higher than 100 inches in a pot?
- How can I make it grow really lush?
It seems like pots not only hinders but fully stops growth on taller plants. Anything to do about it? My location is a dry, sunny place in Mexico. I water it 1-2 a week.
