how to fill the soil space

    2 responses

Hi All,
I have planted some experiment plants in a pot indoors, the top is round 40cm/40cm.

I have planted a date seedling in the middle, Alocasia BV on 1 side & a dracaena sanderiana on the other side.

Since it's a decent size pot, there is a lot of empty black soil space below these tall growing plants. I would like your suggestion on what I can plant under there larger plants that will stay small & cover the empty soil space.

I don't want to use mulch or plant any climbing vines unless they have tiny small leaves which I can keep trimmed when they climb up the side.

I can water as often as required, please see photo on the below link: https://imgur.com/a/XrpiLnE

Thank you so much for your time & efforts!

Hi Farouk,

Your pot size looks reasonable when the plant is young and you can grow as many as in one pot. However, When all the plants grow larger then the size of the pot is not big enough to provide nutrients for all the plants at once. You need to work out yourself what will they be in a few years time. Cheers

Hi David,

Thanks for your response! Noted.

They are growing indoors with just office lighting, no natural lighting which should slow the growth on them (that's if they are still alive, I've accidentally ripped some of the roots from the old tiny pot they were stuck in & the dracaena is a cutting).

Re-potting to a larger pot is an option when required, I can see the date seedling taking over if it doesn't mind the lighting & air-conditioning.
