Hi, I just got an 8" dracaena giganta (drat that's fun to say) for my bedroom. My question is what is the best pot size? The stores are out of a lot of stuff so 12" was the best they had. Is that too big? It's no problem for me to return the pot and try to find a 10" one.

Looks like a young and somewhat light-starved Monstera to me.

Edit: could also be some kind of philodendron. There are many. Any close-ups?

My guess would be young monstera as well. It looks like a leggier version of the one I purchased a couple weeks ago, where the leaves shoot off.

If it came in an 8" pot you probably want a 10"óI believe some varieties of Dracaena do better without a ton of extra space but I'm not sure if that applies here. That said, a 12" pot might not be ideal but it will probably do just fine as long as it's in well draining soil and the pot has a drainage hole.

Okay thanks. I think the person at the store said you don't want to have 2" + around the sides so a 10" is better. I'm not sure how people determine that!

Finally got my mountain laurels.

Got two, a peppermint that is mostly white, and a dark pink, almost purple. The white is at the far end, pink in the foreground next to my neighbors rhododendron. I also got a couple bee balm plants. Man they smell good.



You can also see a somewhat sad assortment of stuff that has come up pretty stumpy. I had envisioned two areas with cascading Hakone grass and sedge, with big painted ferns and hostas for texture. And welp things didnít work out too well. Iím just happy anything came back this year. Iím also terrified with my track record with this plot that the laurels will die.

Oh and I also did something on the other side of the house that I really like. Foam flowers with some lady in red ferns.



Nice! They look good in there and they're hard to kill once they get established. Just baby everything really hard this first season. The foam flower and fern arrangement looks great, should fill in well

This one here is Acer circinatum var ďPacific FireĒ. Itís harder to see here, but the bark does this cool thing where this yearís growth is a deep red and it fades back to orange and yellow at the trunk. Itís funny, I saw a ton of these at the Northwest Flower and Garden show, so they should be fairly easy to find if you want one yourself.




When I started this collection I thought I was just going to stick with palmatum, shirasawanum and japonicum but these vine maples are a real treat and seem to grow a good bit faster.

So hereís the where I get to play enabler - most of those varieties do just just fine in medium to largish pots. I buy only gallon sized trees (unless I hit the jackpot at Costco) and they sit in pots anyway until I figure out where they will go, but they could be very happy in a 10+ gallon pot. Thatís even before you get into the numerous dwarf varieties. Iíve seen cultivars that max out at 2íx2í.

Is there some cheap way to make a plant stand for the corner of my bedroom? It needs to be at least a couple feet tall and hold a 10" pot. Most of the actual stands are not my style, too expensive or too short. Just some hack I can do with Target stuff would be cool! Right now it's sitting on a chair, pretty sad.

Search for a side/accent table. Probably not gonna be cheaper than a plant stand.

Upside down garbage pin is I think the cheapest option. You could join two end to end.

There's no second hand place nearby?

Do fruit plants go in the "veggie and herb gardening" (i.e. edible?) thread or in the "plants in general" (i.e. non-edible?) thread??? O what to do.

Our grapevines are putting out shitloads of flower clusters!! The new shoots are growing at a rate of inches per day. I left about 10 buds on each cane, and each of the three vines has four canes, so that's about 120 fruiting buds. With 2-3 clusters emerging per shoot, that's about 240-360 bunches of grapes in total?! Based on some literature I've read, I'm a little worried I might've overcropped them (grown too much fruit). However, they were super vigorous last year, growing from a single bud down by the ground all the way to a full trunk with four or five fruiting canes per vine. So I think cropping on the high end for each species is appropriate. I might cluster thin (remove fruit clusters before they set) depending on how many leaves end up on each shoot. I have a 3-wire trellis, and I have some canes on each wire, so I can see whether they grow best going up or down the trellis. So far they seem to like growing up. Also I'm a huge nerd, so I drew diagrams of how I pruned each vine, including bud count and location, so I have a record of how they grow each year.

Finding plant stands at a particular height is a huge pain in the rear end in a top hat based on recent experience. Places like Lowes, Home Depot, and Amazon will have a decent number listed but they won't let you filter by height while places like Wayfair that do let you filter by height tend to be pretty expensive (though sometimes you can find the same item listed on Wayfair for a lot less money elsewhere). If you find a cheap (actual) plant stand you like I'd be carefulómost of the inexpensive metal ones are super unstable. As someone else suggested, I'd look for side tables or accent tables, particularly second hand onesóI've found some nice stuff on Craigslist and Facebook marketplace though most of them needed some refinishing or painting.

well i mean one of the blinds is closed and there's no lights on. also my camera sucks. also there's no light on behind me.

when you say beside the window do you mean in the corner where the little bookcase is? it's not going to get any light there really because that's a patio out there with a wall on the right side, and another patio above me.

here's a view from the other side, it does seem to be getting some light

ah okay, that does look a lot better! I'd just give it as much light as possible, like opening both blinds during the day but yeah, that looks like a very solid spot to keep it, should be pretty happy

If you're consistently having trouble in that area, have you considered that there might be something wrong with the soil? Assuming that's not a brand new hosta, it looks pretty stunted, which makes me wonder if you've got a disease in the soil.

If you're not sure, you can take a soil sample near the roots and send it off to a lab.

I'm not great at outdoor plants so hoping one of you can help me with an ID - my friend working as a landscaper sent this to me asking if I knew what it was and how to get rid of it, because they're struggling to control it. My first guess would have been some sort of lily but due to its invasiveness and resistance to glyphosate I'm leaning more towards like... helleborine. Zone 7b/8a.
