The giant 160litre pot from ibs arrived late this afternoon & I have now installed the big vivax aureocaulis into its new home!!, it has a solid rootball of 2ft wide x 14 inches deep :shock: , not sure how long before it outgrows this pot but this is the biggest pot they do with handles, when it outgrows this pot I shall probably cut the bamboo in half & repot again. karl.
