Pometia pinnata help!
« on: September 17, 2017, 04:25:46 AM »
Hello,

My Pometia pinnata seedling leaves eventually turn black, twisted. Some leaves have black spots. I've tried using:

+ Calcium carbonate
+ Organic fertilizer which contains N, P, K, Ca, Mg

None of the above works. I'm not sure if that is because of lacking some nutrient or being sun burnt though I put it in full shade. Anyone has the same issue?

Thats odd.i bought a similar sized plant in late early August and planted it on the ground.I removed the shade after a week.Now its in full sun and lots of new growth.Maybe its some kind of disease

Thanks Arvind for the input! All of my Pometias have been blackening that way and eventually died.

May I ask what is your annual temperature and soil's ph?

Thanks Arvind!
Your climate is very similar to mine. Maybe some disease or ph and soil type took part in this.

Thanks Arvind, I narrowed down to disease and suspected that my Pometia has been infected by "Colletotrichum gloeosporioides", "Cephaleures virescens".
I'll use some organic curers and post result for anyone that may meet similar issue.

Your tree is very nice and healthy! I've expected my Pometia to be like that but unfortunately they've been sick.
Besides, I got seeds from Han Sen (Malaysia same as you). It is also purple, hard-shell variety.

That is quite many! After successfully treating my current Pometia, I'll try some more varieties as you listed.

Btw, in your pics of Pometia, the landscape is awesome! Is that your orchard?

if you want to purchase the other varieties try searching facebook for someone by the name of Helmi Matoa and Helmi Hussein Tabano.He is from Indonesia Riau province and he exports the fruit to malaysia

Thanks Arvind! This is very much helps. I've just found his facebook page. He is 100% a Matoa expert.
