When potting a cane type plant, do you have to put a few inches of soil in the bottom or just sit it in the pot then fill with soil? I'm trying to get the cane in as much of the pot as possible. Others I've seen have theirs (looks to me) almost to the bottom of the leaves. HELP I've gotten to be such a nut for plants and like other living things; want them to be healthy and happy

syl, this is what i do. i put a couple of inches (depending on the pot and cane to be planted) of soil in the bottom, then put the cane on top of the soil and fill it in around it. as long as you make sure you have a node or joint or 2 covered with the soil, you are in good shape. if you want more in the dirt, you can, but it isn't necessary unless there are roots growing from an upper node.

What kind of cane type plant do you have? The planting depth can vary from one species to another? Is this a cutting that has rooted or are you trying to root it in soil?
