question on pot depth

Mon, 20 Jul 2009 20:39:24 PDT
I am Chris Council, and you do not hear from me very often because I am 
still in the process of learning about plants
and flowers.  I came across some angel trumpet seeds last summer by accident 
and I let them dry in their sack. When
they were ready I put them in a bag to dry;  I decided to plant them in pots 
and  used my finger to decide the depth of the
seed.  I put the seed in a pot up to the bend of my first finger and now I 
am happy to say I have some beautiful flowers.
Some of the seeds fell in the dirt; unbeknownst to me and grew on their own, 
although smaller than the ones I planted
myself.  I hope this helped some of you to decide how to plant your seeds. 
The plant is a beautiful white lily which points
upward and comes out in the late afternoon to early evening and smells 
wonderful.  I will try to send a picture for all to see
because I am so proud of myself.
Take care all.

Subject: [pbs] question on pot depth

Hi All,

I am growing some Brunsvigia though all are just seedlings I was wondering 
what depth of pot I should put them in. At the website for stuewe and sons 
they have a

TPOT3  7.75 in wide (20cm) and 12.5 in deep (32cm)

or the

TPOT4 7.75 in wide (20cm) and 18 in deep (46cm)

Anyone have a pro or con for the different depth?

I am thinking deeper is better but i dunno.

Tanks fer da hep.
