Why does a plant growing in a pot get affected by mineral shortages than a plant growing in the garden?
a plant growing in a pot cannot supply minerals of its own,whereas in a garden there are plenty of minerals in the soil.

A plant growing in a pot is more likely to be affected by a shortage of minerals than a plant growing in a garden why is this?
On reason is Rain fall garden plants are surrounded by large areas of earth so when it rains water moves across the surface of the ground and carry's surface minerals with it …from one area to the next,water will also move under the surface of the ground and carry minerals with it as well.Also Rain Water is formed in the atmosphere and contains minerals itself,most potted plants are watered from well water and not rain fall. Another reason is that when potted plants are watered a certain amount of that water will escape through the drain holes in the pot each time this water travels through the soil from the top to the bottom it takes with it minerals from the potting soil so the minerals in the potting soil will be depleted faster as they are continuously washed away each time the plant is watered. Garden plants do have this problem as the surrounding earth soaks up and holds the water and allows it drain away at a much slower rate.

Yes, Plants tend to grow better in potting soil, In fact I am doing a school project on that now.
yes plants can grow in a pot of water because of the nutrients the water provides.
if you have another strawberry plant, wait until it puts our 'runners' these runners will grow air roots which can then be planted in the ground next to the parent plant or a …plant pot. Peg the roots to the ground. When the roots of the new baby plant have establised, cut off from main plant. Transplant to you chosen position. Strawberry plants do not grow true from seed .... okay i highly doubt that's what you wanted as an answer.. but when you buy your weed and you get the seeds that are in your bud keep them. Then buy normal soil and keep it in a closet or something(some where you can hide it) I recomend outting it under a red light but hey that's just me. To keep the weed good, keep it warm (obviously not too warm to where you can smell it every where but you do want to be able to smell the stank when your near your plant). So yeah! theres my tips. P.S. water it once every other day.
Why a plant growing in a pot is more likely to be affected by a shortage of minerals than a plant growing in a garden?
Because the plant in the ground can send out roots to draw minerals from farther away.
well females plants grow the bud. the bud grows from little hairs that stick out all over the tree. this will show first at the point where the main stem meets the stem of a l…eaf. try to make sure you don't mix the female and male. ounce the flowers begin to open on the male and the female is allowed to pollinate energy is wasted on seed growth witch in some cases can take up as much as 90% of your bud production.
you really ask wow i thought that was obvious its just like planting a plant in the ground but you have a limited space for potting . first you get a pot . then a plant . t…hen soil . you place the soil into the pot in till its a tiny bit lower than halve way full . next you gently place the bottom of the plant (roots and stuff) in the soil make sure you spread out the roots you don't want them growing into each other trust me . then you pat the soil around the plant . then water it and hopefully you remember to water it constantly
Yes. All types of plants have different needs and will grow best in the correct mixture.
Only in plants like Bryophyllum which propagates through leaves
Of course pea plants can grow in pots, but be warned make sure you dont overcrowd your pot and give it something to climb up on..
deppending on how many seeds you put in to it Answer. The number of seeds is irrelevant . It only takes one seed to produce a plant in one pot. If the conditions are right t…he top of a pineapple placed on the soil in a pot will grow into a plant.
it grows in 2 or 3 weeks
As many as you can fit in your designated planting area! The more the merrier =)
