Large plant starts in small pots

Tqn626April 7, 2014

How do the nurseries grow big plant starts in such a tiny pot?

Is there a trick to this?

Could you give me a specific plant example of what you are talking about and what you consider a "tiny pot". Different plants have different tricks. :)

95% of the plants one buys in a nursery were not grown in the container you buy them in. That have been transplanted at least once and usually multiple times.
