Will I be able to save my little jack?.
« on: April 07, 2022, 04:55:14 AM »
I buy this Jackfruit seedling a few months ago, during its journey with the postal courier the package and the soil in the pot were shake, I immediately repotted it and kept it in a bright spot but not with direct sun, now it lost all the leaves, the stone has dried up, I pruned to see if he was still alive, do you think he still has hopes of making it? ..
Any good advice will be welcome, thank you.

Luigi

There is always a good reason to plant a tree.

I would first scratch the bark, if there is any green it is still alive and has a chance, if it is brown, it is probably dead, although you have the slim chance it can grow from its roots, but at that point it is unlikely

The container is too small for artocarpus/ e troppo piccolo :)

Thank you very much guys, yes…  under the bark it is still green as in the picture, therefore still alive, the pot is about 50/55 cm high, diameter 20 cm at the top, at the bottom it will be 15/18 cm, it is conical, here they use it Spanish and Italian nurseries for Mango plants, and others tropical fruits plants, the roots I saw in the repotting after the accident during the expedition, were about the size of a small orange, sorry for my English ..
