My local Hydroponic store has these clay balls, are round and large. Their use is for hydroponic growing. It is not cheap, but worth trying, I have been eyeballing these big bags for a while. I have too many big containers.

During the season I use Peters 25 , 8 ,15 HP and also Osmocote plus , 6 month veriaty this starting in May.
In the growroom, I use only Osmocote for the winter.
Kellog at Home Depot is what i buy, comparing the two i find the Kellog more to my liking.

Laaz, what is that brown stuff on top your mix, Osmocote? If so seems like a little much. I use Osmocote plus now for all my citrus till sometimes in March, than go back with Peters.

Sylvain, doing so much to help out a lot of folks and also important to see some of the members coming back . This forum  was just incredible. Laaz just didnít know how valuable he was, when he started.
A true forum like this would be incredible exciting. All of a sudden old names pop up again, these folks got me started in citrus.
Millet, you should remember the one and only "Buddinman". I talk to him last year and early this spring.Then there is Joe Real.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Atemoya pruning advice
« on: October 02, 2018, 07:59:36 AM »
I would clean the bottom branches first, fruits will be laying on the ground. Looking at your tree tells me you got good soil, so you can prune the top also. I would suggest about in half.

Workshop stays at 68*, Fruits seems to continue to ripen but maybe at a slower pace. In the back is a Jaboticaba and a Atemoya which has a fruit. The Jabo has a lot of fruits and flowers are still outside.
They are all on dollies of the concrete floor.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Red Hybrid Jaboticaba size?
« on: September 23, 2018, 08:10:23 PM »
My looks like yours, some big but most are smaller, today the tree is putting more bloom that will ripen in the greenroom for the winter.
This is the 4 times this year to go into fruiting.

Don't worry, once your tree start carrying more fruit that all change, here is case in point.Here is a picture of a Cara-Cara red navel.
If you have 3 branches per tree and one of them carry a fruit, that one will not grow more, while the other two will.
