Information to share!
This weekend we started to move the plumeria plants for storage. My son lifted them up from the ground and moved them just outside the carport door. My husband has not put the lights inside the carport yet, he thinks we have 2 to 3 weeks before we get cold weather. What I have to share is something that K said in one of his postings. I have 12 plants in 5 gallon blue plastic pots, the rim is really wide on these pots, one of Lowes clearance items last winter. The rest of the plants are all in 5 gallon nursery black pots. I got all my plants early last spring, planted them at the same time then sunk the pots in the ground. The plants planted in the blue pots with the wide rim, are at least 2 ft taller than the ones planted in black nursery pots. Whow, what a diffrence. I had no idea, until they were out of the ground, its crazy to see the diffrence in height on these plants. They are all planted in the same flowerbed, so it has to be the pots that made a diffrence. K posted he was going to plant in wide rimed pots, I don't know where got that information, but it is good information. I will try and get Gary to take a picture, next time we go, so I can show you at our next meeting. The diffrence is unbelievable. The end of Feb, I will be able to lift my arm, right now I have to lift my left arm with my right arm and put on the keyboard, so I can type. Barbra
