Tropical Fruit Discussion / Magic Tricks to push Bloom on Mango Seedling
« on: January 03, 2023, 01:36:16 PM »
Hi folks, hope you had great holidays. I was wondering if there are magic tricks to force bloom on mango seedling. I have a seedling that is now 8-yr old and wondering what I can do to make it to bloom this year?

Any thoughts on someone who has been successful? Its a Lemon Zest seedling.

Prayers and thoughts go out to Floridians in harm's way. Be safe.

one thing I noticed is whether we have seedlings or grafted plants, they do well leading to summer heat. if we tinker with them in Summer like graft more onto a nice flushing tree, it for some reason start getting diseases. I lost 3 healthy ones this summer, and I have two seedlings that were grafted Last October are doing great. planning on not touching them any further. Also, refrain pruning them when temps are consistently hitting above 100 in So Cal.

I missed out on it again, dang. Post some pics Brad

I agree with sentiment of drip emitters clogging issue. once you have a large yard with over 400 drips, it becomes a nightmere to maintain them. I prefer adjustable sprayers, although expensive it will payoff itself if it can save you few plants from dying and they are easy to see how well they function. Another good thing is when mulch gets hit with water from top, it helps it breakdown faster, specially in CA where we dont get much rain at all. I am planning out my 3/4 acre garden at my new home and I do plan on limiting the use of emitter drips to where I can physically see them like in vegetable raised beds. Also I dont like soaker tubes/emitter tubes as they clog up with salts build-up. its another nightmere to maintain and you only find the problem when your plant has already suffered.

Anyone growing mango seedlings? I would like to purchase some. I need to restart my garden and am looking for seedlings to get a head start for planting in my garden in 2023.

Cherimoya tend to have residual energy that would push from scion initially. Compatibility may be an issue, although I have not personally experimented it. Keen to find out more about it.

very sorry to hear this sad news. Met him few times and what a fine gentleman he was. May his soul rest in peace. I have his Air-Layer of his Brewster lychee that will stay in my yard as his memory.

Got 8 LZ scions for sale, prepped and ready to go. if Interested PM me. $5/Scion, 4 min. (SOLD OUT). thanks for ordering.


here is another one, Karen Novick how am to suppose to send without address and email?

Who is Luiz Soares? sent $ to wrong PayPal and without first contacting, I cannot accept funds there. You are responsible to call PayPal and cancel your transaction and contact me at

All orders have been shipped with emails sent to all (email you used on PayPal), with Subject "Tracking Number".

If you didn't get email, check email address you used in Paypal. Otherwise notify via email to me. Robert Scott & Lazaro Sanchez you both did not provide any mailing address, email me info ASAP.

Sent you an email, have not received notification and last time my email went to your spam folder
I cant tell from your forum name who you are in my emails.

FYI - we are in the middle of heat wave with temps hit 100 today, will ship in two days, we expect temp dramatic drop. dont want your tapes to turn into mush in heat. So if you have not received notification with Tracking, it means I am holding back. Once I have shipped all I will post here to let all know.

can i still order?

wait till Wed/Thu so I can first process what I have to ship committed ones. Email me your interest at

After custom delays due to stupid California ports Supply Chain bullshit, finally we got tapes delivered to us yesterday. I will start preparing shipments and everyone will receive their packages by Friday at the latest. There are lots of orders to process. Appreciate your patience. Once shipped you will get auto notification from USPS via email.

Please keep an eye on your email from me if I am missing any information I will be contacting you. Delay in getting the info to me will delay your shipment. Some people forget to provide their address, email, and choice of tape altogether. If you did not specify tape type, I will ship perforated.

If you dont get any notification by Wednesday, please email me at

Update: customs cleared and tapes are with the dealer, getting shipped today to me. Hopefully if I get before Friday I will ship over the weekend or early next week.

Can someone please help point me to the right nursery in CA that has in stock large Tango and Golden Nugget Mandarins, 15 gal min, preferred 24"-36" box

yeah- no response over a week- not even an acknowledgement of payment- contacted via forum, email and facebook- very happy to send you scions etc- please acknowledge receipt of payment
I am very busy and cant acknowledge payment from 100's of people. Like I said, once I have tapes arrive and shipped, you will get notification. If there are issues I will reach out to you via email. For you to post comments like above and try to degrade someone is not right, I will be more than happy to refund your payment if that's what you want.

UPDATE - Tapes are at San Francisco/Oakland Port. Just like lazy asses everywhere, San Francisco is one of the worst ports. We might bet it thru customs by early next week. Will ship once received, and alert all here.

You didn't responded to my email 😪

glad I posted, I found your email in spam. replied today.

Whoever emailed has been sent email was sent request for payment. Tapes will be here in 2-3 weeks. Check your email and start sending payments.

From what I see a roll is no more that 12$ or some give you 2 rolls and a knife for 16$ shipped to your door. For me it's a no Brainer and very affordable.

you have no idea what you are talking about. if you buy 10,000 rolls you will get lowest price of $16 plus.
