Check into a "Horizontal Well"

Whats the relationship to mimosa pudica? Referred to locally as hilahila.
Does strigillosa have thorns? [/url]
Do you have any wild hogs in FL?

No hogs are expected on Pine Island, if they come across the causeway they would probably easily eliminated.
I do know about the mimosa pudica.
The sunshine mimosa doesn't have thorns, it is a native plant.

Carlos, thanks very much for your advice. I will try to get an expert in on design and none of my runs are planned to be more than 80 feet, and I did see the tab breakoffs on the Antelco line.


There are many hogs on Pine Island, I have acquaintances that catch them weekly

I bought them in the commercial 4" pots, planted them in 15gal pots.
I left them 2 months with no fertilizer, and since then I fertilized Dec 1st and again Jan 1st with a 1/2 cup of 10-10-10.
The potting soil I have drains very well, but will hardly grow a weed, lol.
Admittedly, I am a bit scared of possibly over fertilizing

Thanks, and glad to hear the effects of the water take considerable time.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / County Water, Soil pH, and Sulfer Application
« on: January 23, 2017, 12:05:57 PM »
I am using county water, to irrigate my potted plants.
I am curious, if the use of this water will raise the pH too high in my pots despite the soil being acidic.
Any thoughts? 
Any recommendations on the application of sulfer, in potted plants???

« on: January 19, 2017, 08:46:22 PM »
I thought Temple was a Tangor?  (orange x tangerine)

Very interesting generalization...
I am afraid I am going to have a Mid-Season crisis like that with what I already have, which is why I am partial to the Guava
