Right, I remember now, sorry about that. How long should i wait for the durian leaves to come out? I also Plastic bag with slight holes over it, along with misting it, hope it'll help it along, I originally had 2 seedlings, but I gave the other one to a nurseryman I know personally.

Thanks, Matt

No Problem

Sorry, I did it this time. forgive me, I am not very adept at writing things on the internet

Thanks for understanding, Matt

What rootstock is the mango tree on

Thank you!

Hello, I have had this durian seedling for 18 days now in my garage. It started to brown from the bottom and I was afraid it was going to die, so I scratched off a tiny piece of the new bark and stopped after one scratch. Will i kill it if I scratch a tiny bit of it off?

Thanks, Matt

How hot did it get in your area, the heat might have caused the tree to abort its fruit

My trees have been perfectly fine, i watered them twice a day, just had a drip irrigation set up, and the only damage i saw was a bit of sunburn on my cherimoya leaves, other than that my trees were in tip top shape. didn't reach above 96 though...

Good to know, thanks and no problem

Hey, I learned from the Laguna Hills Nursery Owner that he paints his mango trees like an avocado. Maybe the reason why turpentine rootstocked mangoes have extreme dieback is that as the leaves droop and die, it exposes the tree branches and bark to sun, cooking it alive. Starting to think mangoes are extremely like avocado trees

Humidity is 70-80 percent in my garage, don't know why, my coffee, vanilla and rollinia grow great there though

Hello, I got a chanee durian seed last week and it has started to put out the green stem, should I uncover more of it or let it extend itself? The garage hardly gets below 60 degrees, and it is being supplemented by 5100K LED grow lights before I build my greenhouse.

Thanks, Matt

Simon, interesting, It seems that 3 centimeters is an appropriate size cutting off the mangoes to trick them. I used a ruler and measured them at 3 cm before cutting them. Thanks for the info!

I heard from a guy who grew florida mangoes in California to pluck off the fruits after they get to the size of a large lima bean, then it thinks it's done fruiting for the year. I tried it myself and even in cold weather, the mangoes don't seem to be putting out new flowers, rather, a heck more leaf growth has pushed out!

Might wanna throw it away, it's not gonna recover from such damage, rotting as it ripens. On the plus side though, you might get even more growth on your mango trees this year!

I can't say for sure, but definitely no root diseases will spread as they are completely separate species

its a sandwich bag, and i took special care to make all the roots intact, I might try the newspaper though.

Thanks, Matt

Hello, I snuck in 2 durian seeds from Thailand on June 1rst and am now in Taipei. Today I discovered that the seeds I have babied in moistened cotton balls have started to germinate, making its first nice, thick, white root. Is the plastic bag big enough to last till june 12th? I'm planning on putting it in a greenhouse, and I will notify all of you for results

Thanks, Matt

Sorry, I just want to do some testing

It gives maximum oxygen to the roots and literally you can't overwater if you start plants in it, unless you drown it for 2 weeks in a row

I use either pure sand or a combination of 1/3 peat moss, and the rest perlite, pumice, charcoal and sand.
I put compost on the top

Sorry, To rephrase to Post, I was planning on putting the mango in A large pot, and I'm planning on growing a Coconut Cream mango from Seed, as through digging around this forum, I found that CC mangoes are poly. Grafting Mangoes has been so far unsuccessful with me, and I have some Maha Chanoks In my garage under grow lights, if I were to plant a Mango in the same spot, how deep and wide should I dig?

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
