How long can I keep one poppy plant in 16oz peat pot?



Can poppy be forced to flower early so that they stay small?

Poppies flower cycle is the opposite of cannabis... in other words, poppies flower on an increasing light cycle.


You can flower in any size container as long as you can keep up with the plants needs.


I'm pretty sure you can force flower just as can be done with many varieties of flowers.

Poppy seedlings are extremely sensitive to heat.

They like 60 degrees F. They can tolerate 80 to 85 F. 90F might kill them.

They need to be a certain size before they get that full dose of sunlight.

Thanks for info.

Is it all poppies that have opposite flower cycle to cannabis?

If I wanted to make Papaver hybrids could I pollinate P. somniferum with any other Papaver?

I can't say, really, whether all poppies flower the same.
My poppies have been opening flowers over the last week (diminishing light cycle). I didn't expect that at all.

I tried to plant them during the summer but just found out what happened when you subject poppy seedlings to summer heat.

Killed a lot of seedlings. They basically disappear, there is only a wisp left when they succumb to the heat. Then the wisp is gone and you're like, "they disappeared !!"

Finally got some traction around early September. Temps dropped about 15 degrees and finally a few batches of seeds got through the fragile early seedling period.

Once they're 2 or 3 inches high, they LIKE the bright sun.

Since the days are getting shorter fast, I'm wondering how much light energy they will have to help them with their later growth stages, when they have a stalk and try to make a flower.

The best I could do is find a grow area that gets sun when the sun is 10 degrees West of South, 190 degrees East of North for the sailors that can read an azimuth chart.

And when the sun is close to setting, it has to be above 16 degrees in the sky to make it to the garden area.



So October 9 I got about 200 minutes of sun.

140 minutes on November 9.

100 minutes on December 9.

It definitely works better to plant them in early spring, but it is sure interesting to plant them during the summer.
