Hi all, new grower, starting 3 plants that are about 10cm/4” high. I’m growing on my balcony, fairly discreet, but I can’t have 1m or 3’plants.
I am thinking about using a large shallow tray for one of my plants. The dimensions are ~60cm diameter 10cm high, rated 20Liters or roughly 5gal…
Reason for that is to keep the plant very low, and want to Low Stress Train the plant to nicely turn around the tray. I could sort of slope the soil from center out, making the capacity of 30L/7gallons.
My question is, are there some possible problems with growing in a shallow low container for the roots or the plant?
Does it have to be a high, standard pot?
I could have a very low, bushy plant that could “turn in a circle”, low to ground and stay maybe 50cm/2’ max high?
What do you people think?
Thanks for any info
