La Niña 20 gal trash Barrel grow


Active member
Hello all,

Will update when I can. Basically I have a beautiful La Niña that I wanted to grow outdoor. It’s sitting on my back porch, went to the grow store to get a 15 gallon pot/ bag and they were all out. Closest I could find without ordering online was a trash barrel. I’ve got holes in the bottom and slits all around the sides.

Plant was transplanted yesterday from a 5 gal to the 20 gal. Soil is coast of Maine stonnington blend and come lobster compost on top for mulch purposes. (Soil already contains the compost)

Name sez it all, she's gonna be a brute! Stick in some colored plastic flowers for the effect ;)
