Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: air layer fertilizer
« on: Today at 12:12:07 AM »
I agree. Lately I've been using potting soil since that is what I have.






I used potting soil on guava 3 weeks ago. Seems fine.




I put new potting soil in pot, trying to alleviate leaves drooping and dropping after cutting branch off tree.

Low and slow release.
Since you added rabbit manure that would be enough.

I air-layered trees with potting soil, the one with fertilizer.
Bag claimed there is enough fertilizer to feed 6 months.

I pot newly cut ones in the same potting soil.

You pot your tree in dirt?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Atemoya Disaster!
« on: August 11, 2018, 12:02:10 AM »
If this season's new growth on the atemoya is six feet or more, you can prune it back to 4-5 feet, and then remove two leaves, starting two leaves back from the cut.

I've experimented with removing leaves from different positions from cut. I've not come up with a good method.

What's the reason for skipping the first 2 leaves after cut?

I would remove the brown part and the big branch. Keep that small branch with 1 leaf.
The tree would put out many new shoots.

After you cut the branch off don't water much since the tree has 1 leaf to evaporate water.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Help: wax apple won’t flower
« on: July 19, 2018, 02:33:00 AM »
According to this article http://www.apaari.org/wp-content/uploads/downloads/2014/02/Wax-Apple-Industry-in-Taiwan_15-2-2014.pdf

Cover tree with black net for 20-40 days then light pruning and add fertilizer.
I'm not sure if the heat buildup from black net or low light help.

2. Leaves support the tree so leave them on.

Only got 3/9 grafts in early February, on in-ground trees. Got 3/6 in May, on in-ground trees. 2/8 on 2 big trees, in May. A little better on potted seedlings.

11 HP is equivalent to 8 KW.
How many KW is your motor?

It's not hydroponic. It's wasting water.

Look very similar. We got cutting from friends and family.
So we don't know V.

We are copying you all to water DF everyday. Many fruits this year than previous years.

You bought a fruit or a tree?

I got scion from scion exchange last Jan.
The graft had 1 flower, but dropped before it was mature.
I'll strip leaves in a week to force more flowers.
