Komodo Dragon

Posted by old_dirt zone5 Mi (My Page) on

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...

RE: Komodo Dragon

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..

ken, in adrian MI
