Hi Everyone, I have been a member of this great forum for years now but just lurk around gathering information about the trees i grow. I just got myself a lil piece of property in Polk County Central FL last year and have planted over 100 trees ,shrubs and fruiting vines, mostly mangoes. I have just had a terror fighting powdery mildew and it seems i kinda lost this season.Somehow i know its because i have never asked for advice personally when i have needed it from you forum guys  like i know i should . I believe i may become a fairly active member this year. I sincerely hope to .

Great to have Polk county neighbors on the forum. Mangos are amazing, perfect for Florida and a favorite of myself and all my Hispanic relatives!
AMEN TO THAT!!!  I have several dragonfruit too but i have yet to get them in the ground and posted on wood. I am on the edge of winterhaven by lakeland and auberndale, hot high and dry here. the soil sucks lol

Nice! Yeah central FL soil isn't that great however it is apparently almost ideal for dragonfruit as it is usually sandy and they like a well draining soil like that. Just have to add in compost/organic matter and maybe some perlite. Dry too is usually not an issue as long as you supplement with occasional watering, it's the crazy daily rains in summer we get that can be killer to blooms/fruit production . Have to once again make sure to let them drain really well. I'm thinking of putting a 4x4 PT post through a partially buried pot so I can control both soil and drainage, but I'm still wary of the rainy season.

How big is your property that you planted like 100 trees/plants?!
Im on just over an acre, its like a desert here , high and dry and hard sugar sand. zero organic matter overan by bermuda grass and fireants
