 HI LA folks,

Hi everyone,

I am planning to soak my trees with Superthrive vitamin solution be fore I am plan them in the Potts. 

Does anyone had experience with this product.  How long should I soak the trees?  I am planning to soak them overnight, is that ok?

Thanks again Bill for coordinating this group buy. Itís a ton of work for sure.

I just picked up a few trees for my friend in San Diego and some of the trees definitely have nematodes although much less than the previous group buy. It would be best practice to treat all your trees as if theyíre infected even if they donít have the galls on them because they most likely contacted contaminated trees.

Hereís a few pictures of the nematode galls from this order.





A few of the smaller trees are pretty dried dried up and one of the smaller trees I got for my friend has the entire top starting to wrinkle which isnít a good sign.

This sort of thing is to be expected for such a large shipment of trees and that is why many people ordered extra trees in case some donít make it.

The nematode thing sucks as well but if youíve been following the Yangmei threads/post, you probably figured that just about all the trees shipped from overseas has the potential to carry nematodes.

I highly recommend that everyone treat their trees as if they are infected so that they donít spread these nasty bugs in their garden.

Only one of my trees (DK) showed possible signs of nematodes. It was just one bulbous root that I cut off. Other than that, the trees look really nice! I also soaked in B1 Start for about an hour and watered the soil with it. I've had great results using it in the past for other trees. The plants skipped transplant shock and new growth would appear just a couple days later.



Already in their new homes. I know these plants are cold tolerant once they're established, but is it ok to leave them out at night while they're recuperating? My lows are in the 40-45F for the next week.

Thanks for the recommendations Simon. Do you use the Monterey nematode control at full strength?

You may consider a heating mat. I had success doing exactly what youíre doing but with a heat mat underneath, also make sure you have a bunch of holes in the bag and some air flow.

It was great meeting you guys earlier!

It should be ok leaving them out overnight but it would be much better to put them in a warmer area that has high humidity.

Nate, I use it at 1.33 Oz per gallon.

My last order did well doing this, but I think I took them out of the bags too soon. The branches were dry and I lost 2 of 4. That's a big heat mat. I probably have enough of them to cover it, but they're busy right now ;D

I have this crazy idea...right above that photo is a round vent for a ceiling exhaust fan. I'm thinking about tenting the plants with some painter's plastic and run a duct pipe down the wall and under the tent to vent out my heated air into the tent at night. I really should just move them inside... Thanks I actually forgot about holes!

For those of you who are potting and not just grafting what size pots are you using?
Anyone care to share your mix of soil or your brand?

Use the smallest pot size available because it's easier to control watering. Last order I used 1 gallons with the exception of a 3 to fit a larger tree.
