I bought this Strelitzia Nicolai in early March and it's been sitting in front of a West facing window upstairs. When purchased, there was a furled shoot that unfurled smoothly in the spot that it's in. I have not fertilized or done anything since, just watering around every 2 weeks or longer depending on the weather. Last month or so, one new shoot is forming.
Lately, I've noticed the roots on the bottom of the nursery pot are growing out. I read that BOP roots like to grow deep- I'm just wondering if it will be fine to leave it as is or if I need to move it into a deeper container?
I'm not exactly sure where I could find a container like this, but I'd try to keep the diameter the same or just slightly larger than the current size but taller in height:
- Nursery pot is ~9.25 inches
- Cache pot's inner diameter is 9.5 inches
- Nursery pot height is ~10 inches
- Height of the current cache pot is 10.75 inches.
