Citrus General Discussion / Re: fully soaking containers when watering

Avocado roots don't like being disturbed or super saturated DG soil in my experience. Your soil Mixture is probably off.

Enhh? What do you mean?


Just saw this:

Hawaii
Breaking NATIONAL GUARD JUST ORDERED A MASSIVE EVAC

BREAKING ON FOX NEWS

Evacuation affects about 1000 people on the island

This is not yet on place, authorities are on preparations to it due the danger of ashes, stronger explosive eruptions and big quantities of gas in the air.
This is all totally false. Fox News is the KING of fake news!





Hmm, the fake news only seem to be happening on this site Ė interesting.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: When and how much to irrigate?

How sandy is your soil ?

I think your citrus will need more water than your grass. Itís said many citrus are watered too much and even to death. I think thatís called loving them to death. You can also not water enough especially this time of year when the temps get really up there ! Try to keep grass away from your inground trees or the grass will get too much of the fertilizer and water. Commercially speaking, any time a crop is noticeably stressed by too little water then damage has already been done hurting yield. I would take that as an encouragement to be proactive and get ahead of the curve.

Iíd think it would not be good to have standing water or saturated ( soggy) soil for long periods of time. I hope this helps. We been getting some much needed rain the last 2 days. Itís coming from a Ďback door Ď front meaning from the opposite direction from where we get most of our weather.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Seedling Atemoya flowering at 1 year
« Last post by achetadomestica on May 21, 2018, 10:25:56 PM »
I have never hand pollinated. I have 4 Na Dai sugar apples and so far the flowers are
drying up and turning black. I suspect this early rainy more humid weather we have had
will make the difference and the flowers will start setting. I do have a Lisa and Tim atemoya
and also their flowers have not set fruit. But my Dream has fruit all over it including some
already the size of fifty cent pieces. I ate sugar apples for the first time last year and I was
very impressed. I have a dozen seedlings from last year of different types. I got some Na Dai
from a forum member that are suppose to be the best. I have 3 and they sprouted around December
or later and are less then a foot tall. One of them had a flower last week.
