Dear Bonavenyure;
Yes. Did you break down the fiber pot in any way? If this is not done
the root growth can be inhibited. In theory they are supposed to break
down but this is not always the case. A 4 inch pot is far too small for
this very large and very fast grower. As it is still July, I would plant
it in an sunny location and keep it moist. It might well grow away being
happy to be released from its prison. Cheers, John E. Bryan
