Q. Transplanting kratom plant to bigger container

I have a kratom plant about 8 and 1/2 ft tall. It is still in the soil and covered in newspaper and plastic on the outside of the block of soil. Do I need to transplant it into a pot or something? I just want it to keep growing without running into problems. Thanks.

If you are in a very warm climate, in gardening zones 10 or 11, you can plant your kratom outdoors. Anywhere colder, you should plant it in a pot so that you can move it indoors during the winter (before the first frost). Here's how to find your gardening zone in the US:

Q. Transplant my kratom plant in to a bigger container?

I have a kratom plant about 8.5 ft high. My question is do I have to transplant it into a pot to keep growing, or can I leave it in the block of soil covered in plastic and newspaper on the outside of the soil? Thanks.

You will want to transplant into a larger container right away.

Q. Finding a plant

Where can I purchase rooted cuttings of a Kratom plant. I would like to purchase several strains of the plant. Thank you for your help

We don't recommend places to purchase plants. I would check online, or local nurseries. Try Ebay or Etsy; they are often good sources for plants.
