We planted a Calandrinia Spectabilis in a small succulent garden. This
thing grows like a weed. It has quadrupled its size in four months and
looks set to take over the entire garden. I would like to transplant this
from the garden into a planter, then trim the excess off as it hangs over
Are there any tricks for successfully transplanting this plant?
How deep does the soil need to be? I was thinking of transplating into a
concrete bowl that is 21 inch diameter and 8 inch depth in the middle.
We are in USDA zone 9B, near San Jose, California.
My setup is very close to this image:
And I am proposing to remove from the ground and transplant into a bowl
similar to this one:
So again I am looking for guidance on how to remove the original planting,
and on how deep the target bowl needs to be. Basically I am trying to
understand how the roots grow and whether they go deep or whether the plant
can survive in the small bowl. I'm hoping reduced soil area under the plant
will keep it from growing out of control.
I'm trying to understand soil depth requirements of this plant, and tricks
to replanting it, not predicting when it will need yet another replanting
sometime in the future.
