    I'm glad they're doing well! you can put 10 in a 6 inch pot, but you'll have to re-pot in about 6 months. I use a mixture of peat/perlite/sand (not much sand though, maybe 1 half part). the root sysem can get pretty large, the 6 inch pot will let them grow for 6 months. when you re-pot again, put each one in a separate pot, a 4 inch will be good. once they're in the 4 inch, they won't near, or at least ueed to be re-potted for around a yntill you think they look cramped. They prefer plastic instead of clay or tera-cotta. in about 3-4 years they should be as large as mine, my largest one is almost 6 feet tall now!

    Good job on growing them, and good luck!
