    hello,
    will a container with a depth of 2 inches hold a matured VFT?
    thx
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    My mature VFT with a diameter of 12cm across, does well in a plastic pot of diameter 10cm and depth 8cm.

    They will also make good seed starting pots. Seeds only need 1-2" of media to sprout. Once the new sprouts are large enough, or starting to grow into one another, they can be transplanted to larger pots.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!
