Plants and packaging.
With our state of the art packaging we can ensure that your new plant arrives in style. Before leaving, all plants are inspected, watered and pruned if necessary. Your new plant is bagged to keep the soil moist and to ensure that the soil stays in the pot not loose in the box. Then your plants are tissue, kraft paper wrapped or bagged and secured in place with natural biodegradable peanuts, you will be pleased. See our cane planting guide.
Before you plant outdoors.
Here at the nursery, sugarcane plants are grown under 20-40% shade cloth. If you plant directly in full sun you may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this plant to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or so to avoid stress. See our cane planting guide.
Pot and plant size.
All plants for sale will vary in size. In the spring, plants are often smaller than plants shipped in the fall. Most plants designated with a sku ending in -4, or -6 will arrive in a standard 4 inch or 6 inch round growers pot respectively. Our new, reusable, recyclable deep cells are 5 to 7 inches deep and 1 to 2.5 inches in diameter. Products growing in these cells are easy to transplant and allow for deeper, faster growth and are designated with a -5, or -7. (Note: The item sku number can be found just below the buy button.) The color and style of these pots may vary. If we are out of a particular size item, we may ship a larger size at no additional charge. You can see the various pot sizes and actual plants ready to ship.
