Here is my small set up.  I grew these cuts last year about 11 months now.  But there is a rotted and wondering what may cause and cure it?

Great.  I'll spray it today evening after work.   I probably have to sell the extra to local.  If I can't sell it, is it good for any other trees?.  1 click purchase from Amazon is not convenience sometime.

Thank you Millet for your info.

Hi all,

I made a mistake and ordered too much AC Urea - (NH2)2CO - 46-0-0 Fertilizer.   I have extra 10 lbs for sale and asking for $25.  If you live close by I can drop it off.

Thank you,


Oh  boy,  i got 20lbs by accident from Amazon for only 1 cocktail tree.  It will last me forever.

.44 lb ~  approximate 11 table spoon.  Someone may need to double check it.

Question because someone said dont over due it.  So for 2 gallons  mixed, how big is the tree?

Here you go. I tried couple weeks ago and crossing my fingers.  My in law airlayed Longan tree and gave it to us.  Lychee is from my brother.  I dont have their names.  Will see.

Good to know and thank you Behl for your reply.   When you have time, please post some pics.  Do you mind to share some prune to maintain balance and fertilizer please?

Sorry Gozp. 

Im leavimg outhere to see any thoughts.  What happen to fruit when next door or neighbor grow different variety?

Seanny - yeah it cant stop me.  Will see how it turn out.  What happenned to your grafted tree? Did you ever get fruit from it?

Gozp - let just say it's not grafted.  It's possible to get pollen contamination  from neighbors, right?

After grafted couple scions, i cleaned up backyard a little bit and found these and decided to plant them to see what they are.   Can anyone ID these plants?

Thank you for your informative post.  it's great for newbie like me.

Here is my tangerine tree that i saved.  It was pushed away by overgrown tree.
 We want orange and lemon trees but we need to save space for Longan and Atemoya trees.  So I grafted Lemon, Orange, Kumquat, and Grapefruit from CCCP scions.  So far so good, i need to let them grow and keep them in check/balance. 

Please ashare and advice your experience of care and fertilizer.  I appreciate it.
