I am concerned that something is causing my few seedling Marang to grow slower than their potential. The grew fast in the shadehouse while they had energy from the seeds in plastic bags, but when planted out they've hardly put out any leaves.
They are in well-draining loam soil, 40% shade (under cassava that will be cut out when the Marang grows a bit), and I water it weekly. A bit windy, but not extreme enough to bother Jackfruit or Breadfruit. Soil is pH near 6.5. I have not fertilized them yet. Here's a sad picture of one of my Marang:
Since my Jackfruit and Breadfruit thrive in a similar environment on my farm, I can only speculate that Marang has somewhat different environmental needs. Wind, maybe? Any ideas?
