I bought a jabo with some bark damage at the trunk. Is there something I should do to prevent it from rotting in the future? Or is it fine to leave it like this? It has been growing nicely otherwise.



Maybe clear away the dirt around the wound.
How deep is the cut?

Wound seems deep, I dug down 3Ē and it was missing part of the bark all the way down. I didnít dig further fearing roots may be disturbed. I was unaware of the missing bark until I bought it home since it was wrapped in trash bags for the journey.

should grow right out of it, they swallow wounds like the blob...

i got some with really bad wounds and they seem to heal with no help...

but i'm sure unlucky trees can decline in rare cases...i'd probably just leave it alone, and try not to get that part saturated too much...

I paid I think $200 or so for my 25 gallon red jabo (not the easiest thing to find) and it began fruiting in December and was planted last July 2018.

Does anyone water their potted jaboticabas through saucer/kiddie pool/stock tank below the pot? Instead of watering from the top let water soak up through bottom since Jabos like wet feet?

I wanted to post an update, I placed a saucer under red jabo from plantogram about a week ago. Newer leaves are broader and longer, it must like its feet wet. Sabara isnít showing any noticeable difference but new leaves are pushing.
