14-14-14 slow-release fertilizer
15-30-15 soluble fertilizer
Dissolve 1 tablespoon of 15-30-15 soluble fertilizer in 1 gallon of water. Water the brussels sprouts with the solution every two weeks, beginning about six weeks after transplanting. Frequent watering leaches fertilizer from the container, so regular reapplications ensure the plant gets the necessary nutrients to produce well.
Things You Will Need
Feel the soil in the container at least once a day. Water when the top 1 inch of soil feels dry. Soil dries out more quickly in a container, and brussels sprouts may require daily watering during hot or dry weather.
Twist the brusssels sprouts from the main stalk when they reach their mature size of 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Harvest from the bottom of the stalk and work up as the sprouts mature. Lower sprouts mature earlier than the top ones.

Container-grown plants are less prone to pests and diseases. Wash your hands and gardening tools before working with the plants to further minimize pest problems. Aphids are the most common pest, which you can rinse off the foliage with a sharp spray of water.
It’s important to keep the delicate seed sterile, so don’t touch the seed or taproot as it begins to split.
As mentioned above, you can skip the processing of sexing weed plants by growing with feminized seeds or clones.
Finding a cannabis seed in your stash is not ideal, but we’ve all been there before. Although much less common than it once was, it still happens. Sometimes you’ll notice one when grinding down some flower, or you’ll see one pop, spark, and crackle from the heat of a lit bowl.
These are referred to as “bagseeds” and whether or not you can grow one will depend on where it came from.
Once you see the taproot, it’s time to transfer your germinated seed into its growing medium, such as soil.
Within a week or so you should see a seedling begin to grow from the soil.
If cannabis is legal in your state, you can buy seeds or clones from a local dispensary, or online through various seed banks.
Clay-like dirt doesn’t bother them, but that can be hard to replicate in containers.
Brussel sprouts grow, unlike any other plant, growing on tall plants with incredibly massive stalks. The sprouts look like tiny cabbages growing up and down the stems.
5: Know When To Plant Brussel Sprouts Outside
You don’t HAVE to mulch your plants in containers unless you want to do so. Container gardening isn’t known for too many weeds.
You can put your plants outside 2-3 weeks before the final frost date of your area. You could try to put them out 3-4 weeks before this date if you have a frost blanket to protect them. While they can handle light frosts, most plants cannot handle a hard freeze.
One thing that you should know is brussel sprouts are picky about their growing conditions. Remember that this is a cool-season crop, so it grows and matures better in cold temperatures.
