Well In Michigan winter is sort cold...although its going to be 53 which pisses me off as I don't need plants coming out of dormancy. The garage plepant will be coming out and ice cubes will be used too cool them roots anyway. I was told that can help 50's are risky.
My questions however focus more on ficus plants. I have a boiginvelia that is just casting off its flowers. I will need to cut some of the shoots they are almost pushing up against the lights. The bougie is actually pushing out of the pot, the plant has not been styled Since it was sick very sick...that no longer seems to be the issue. In several days I will have a 6 bulb 250W overhead light ant 156W from the side this will eliminate the bottom leaves falling off . However I know that these plants like to be rootbound,but I was not expecting it to push out of the pot. So here go the questions.
A. Should I should just pile on more soil and wait one more year for a transplant? My gut said yes but second opinions are always welcome.
B. If I do add soil I would add peat something that is missing from this very rocky soil, however the question is adding chealated Iron be helpful or hurtful?I do use bougain how often should be?
C. I know people have it out on the forums all the time.But is superthrive something to use?
Just a side note I started a jurnal of what plant had what done to it so as not so I can keep track of watering, pests and other such things
