The best size of pot for the growth phase of feminised strains in a 1 m² space, after germination in Jiffy 7, is 3 to 4 litres. For most photo-dependent strains this phase usually lasts 3 weeks, except for Bubba Kush, which is an Indica with a longer vegetative period.

Choosing the right growing pot is not something to take lightly. The decision must be based on the characteristics and final objective of your grow. One of the questions that growers most frequently ask us is “What pot do I need to use for this specific strain?”

Growing feminised strains outdoors

It is worth making an extra effort to achieve a greater yield. Some Moby Dick XXL Auto, Haze XXL Auto, and Amnesia XXL Auto phenos can deliver amazing yields as far as quality and productivity go. So let them surprise you!

If you’re growing automatic strains in a 1 m² indoor tent, it is best to use 7-10 litre pots for the full life cycle of the plants, with no need for transplants.

This is the best choice to maximise the plant/yield ratio indoors, as you can easily grow around 8 or 9 plants in optimum conditions. From our viewpoint, this is the best formula to optimise indoor growing with autoflowering strains, especially as you need to keep production and electricity costs in mind as well.

The yellow, buttercup-like flowers that bloom throughout summer draw in beneficial pollinators like various bees and butterflies. Since mosaic plant floats atop the water’s surface and extends its roots to the bottom of the waterbody, it’s able to absorb excess nutrients and pollutants throughout the water column.

Belonging to the evening primrose family, Onagraceae, and the water primrose genus, Ludwigia, mosaic plant, also called mosaic flower or false loosestrife, is one of the very few members of this genus that belongs south of the equator. Of Onagraceae’s 655 species and Ludwigia’s 75 species, the vast majority are found in temperate North America. Mosaic plant is an outlier of both its family and genus – it is native to South America, primarily Venezuela, Panama, Columbia, and Brazil. As such, it thrives in warm, sunny, damp conditions.

Facts, Benefits & Uses of Mosaic Plant

If you live in a cooler region, such as the Midwest of the US, there should be no need to trim mosaic plant back as the harsh winters will kill them off each year.

The main things that you’ll need to do for mosaic plant are regulate water temperature and pH to match the specifications discussed above. In addition, trim off any dead or dying foliage, including flowers, to encourage healthy growth. As always, remove any detritus from the water to facilitate healthy water quality. When first planting, you can place a fertilizer tablet in the basket or soil just below the plant’s roots (not applicable if you allow the plant to float, of course).

If you live in an area that doesn’t experience particularly cold winter temperatures, you’ll likely need to keep mosaic plant cut back so that it doesn’t overtake the rest of your pond. Be sure to properly dispose of any cuttings in the trash or compost; don’t just toss them aside, as mosaic plant primarily spreads via cuttings and these could either re-establish in your pond or, much worse, in a natural waterway.
