I recently planted 16/1 mango in-ground recently.
As u can see i put 25 gal pot and torned the bottom pot to encourage roots not to go through the sideways (at least for the pot's coverage).

It would be interesting to see how it grows year by year.

Great job Paul. Perfect example of what cultivars work on turpentine. All of our guavas died in turpentine on on Manila type rootstock (carabao) itís vigorous

I had 2 buttercream, 2 guavas from Lynn that died on me last uear on turpentines. So far so good. Some turpentines work here in my experience. However, manila or some specific seedlings work better than turps.

Its very tough to grow mangoes especially in my area. A few branches were infected with antrancnose.

My interventions was to cut/ remove the infected part. Scrub neem oil and turmeric powder. Then seal it with iv organics paint.

Turmeric powder?  Interesting -- never heard of that being useful to deal with plant infections.

Hello all,

New to the Forum. Here are a few late afternoon pictures. Tree was bought from TopTropical in Apr. 2017. Don't really know to much about specific growing techniques. Hope to learn from you everyone here. Thanks for your time. Be easy on the feedback and criticism on current pictures posted.

Respectfully,
Noriega

I wanted to get some advice on pruning times and upkeep? I read most of thread up to current. Also, right now tree has white grubs. I'm thinking about putting "milky spore" but scared to commit. Don't really know side affects for allergy or will cause it to bring other pests? Thanks in advance.
