Hello, my Pickering mango is on a Turpentine Rootstock, and It seems to be suffering from some minor dieback, but is inching back some new growth. Should I replace it with a Seedling Polyembryonic Mango or a Maha Chanok on a Atualfo Rootstock?

Thanks, Matt

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Grafting mango trees indoors
« on: May 08, 2017, 05:31:33 PM »
Hello, as it is way too cold to graft mangos outside currently, I have decided to move them into my garage. I'm going to use metal halide lighting to supply the light, and a small forced air heater to supplement the needed heat. Can I pull it off successfully? And what should I do to make it a bit more successful?

Thanks, Matt

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Why are my soursop leaves so small
« on: January 21, 2017, 02:28:01 PM »
hello, my soursop tree has had significantly smaller leaves since the last winter, what is the cause of this, and how can i fix it?
thank you

HOLY CRAAAAAP!! This Stuff works like magic! You might as well throw away everything you know about soil because the owner of the nursery has it all figured out. When I first bought my trees, they were on a slow decline, lychees got really bad leaf burn, mango slowly dying of root rot, etc. But then I switched to this soil because the guy explained how commercial potting soil/planting mix actually harms the tree rather than helping it. The mix is made of sand, pumice, charcoal, and perlite. When I switched half the old soil to the lychee, it immediately dropped the bad leaves and went into a giant growth spurt, without any of the classic californian lychee leaf burn, then I switched my Pickering Mango tree to that stuff, and it went into a nice growth flush ON A TURPENTINE ROOTSTOCK. All my plants except the barerooted ones show extreme improvement in tree health. I am not trying to promote his stuff, but rather im giving my review on the soil.  Make sure u guys dont bareroot any trees cause that'll kill em. make sure you get down to the main rootball, then stop.

Hi, i recently changed my cacao tree's soil and put it into a giant 15 gallon pot, and it doesnt stand up still, though its only been a day. Will it Survive? thanks!

Hi, I plan on doing an experiment on grafting two mango varieties into a Manila mango rootstock, specifically, the maha chanok, and either a lemon zest, choc anon, or Carrie mango. Please give me the best advice you can on the experiment, I've got two split branches on the rootstock to go with. Detailed explanation of the cleft of bud grafting process would be appreciated.

Thanks again,
