When to repot jaboticaba?
« on: October 17, 2020, 12:27:54 PM »
I've had this Grimal seedling in this pot the last few years. It has grown and I'm wondering how big it should get before I repot it.

I follow Flying fox fruits advice and step them up once the taproot hits the bottom of the pot and has started to branch out some roots on the bottom.

Trip?

Unless it is rootbound (spiraled or entangled mess), dont disturb the roots.

Depends how bad and condition.  You could pull it out and post a picture.  If roots are just to the pot but not tangled or spiraled, you should be fine.

Dont mess with the rootball.  Just set in as is.
