Thank you for all of the information pineislander!  So I can get one of these plants and never have to buy fertilizer and mulch ever again? Do I also have to put something like banana leaves over the chop and drop, because my bananas are not large enough yet and I have nothing else. The entire mulch thing is a relatively new thing to me in its entirety, so I need to get the hang of this.

Also, I wanted to ask, I bought a lychee plant from a store and it has your tag on it. The people there did not know so I wanted to ask, is the lychee grafted or airlayerd? When can I expect it to fruit? Thanks.
hopefully you got it from responsible nursery but lychee tree are air layer
