The root system is usually on a core lump a couple of inches down.  It will grow in the pot just fine. -Birdy

roots are not too deep but mine grew 8 ft tall, but the soil has to be amended mixed with peat moss, good dirt and lime and horse manure..................the container has to have good drainage with stones on the first 1or 2 on the bottom....then all the dirt......cucumber need sun, ventilation and clean water.
