Looking good Shannon, I'm having the same issues here with a Veinte Cohol that's still in the ground. Wish I had thought to pot it sooner.

Just FYI....pretty sure that is not a 50 gallon container. This is the rubbermade 50 gallon container:

I would bet it's more like 10-12 gallon. My 25 gallon pots are taller and as wide as the longer side all the way around. It should be okay in that pot, but won't probably have super-vigorous growth. To answer your question, though, if it gets cold, yes, you can bring it inside and it should be okay. If it does bloom, theoretically bunch size should already be determined, but development of the fruit might be difficult since it was recently transplanted and lost much of its root system.

Hmmm....must look a lot smaller in the pic, then. My 25 gallon pots seem a lot larger than the pictured container (with a similar sized plant) but maybe the perspective is off somehow. 50 gal. should be fine, then.

PS...took away that thanks....ouch! LOL.

PPS...TEN 40 gallon bags of soil? That's 400 gallons....clearly there are some measurement inconsistencies here.

It does look very small to me too but at 3 feet long...
I think just the shape is deceiving since we are use to seeing round pots.

Always nice to have a inside nanner to stare at
Have fun dragging that thing around =]

Is it 6 foot at pstem or top leaf?

FYI - for those looking to do conversions, 1 cubic foot holds 7.5 gallons. Another useful fact I learned in my irrigation engineering course about 32 years ago is that you lose 1 PSI for every 2.31 feet you go uphill with an irrigation line (or gain going downhill). Not that this second factoid pertains to this thread at all, I just like to recall some things which I learned in college that have turned out to be helpful information. On the other hand, learning to do calculus with manual calculations has never done me one single bit of good! lol
