How do I make this beautiful?

Posted by jeanne 6OH (My Page) on

I picked this up at the plant swap today and have never grown an Angel's Trumpet before, what should I do to make this plant happy and healthy? Is this how it should look right now? It looks like it's potted in garden soil, should it go in the ground or into a pot? A total Brug newbie here, any help would be most eagerly appreciated.

I'm only a bit less of a brug newbie, but my first thought is the poor thing must be rootbound. It needs a larger container and good soil that holds moisture. They don't like to be soggy or dry. I'm sure someone will answer you more fully soon.

Thanks Procrastinator, I'll repot it tomorrow morning.
