My mulberry and other fruits collection


#241

I understand what u mean… my back is killing me… lol.
Do you think once the roots system from pots to the ground are established i wont need to water so often?
So far the ones i feel are more thirsty are:
. The feijoas (they ALL dried off and i thought they were dead, but now they all are pushing new leaves :slight_smile: )
. The aracas, they also dried out but are now pushing new leaves
. The goiaba
. The big cherimoya (currently flowering)
. The atemoya (also flowering)
. The grumixama

Not sure if the uvaia and cherry of Rio Grande also need a lot of water, they are from the Brazilian Sertão right?

Anyway i live 1h away from the property. I cant possibly go there everyday to water them. I am trying to go once or twice a week. Hope thats enough, but i am scared once the temperatures reach over 30C


#242

Depends on temperature… i used to do it on intercalated days, but on hot days i do it every day.


#243

Everyday is impossible for me :frowning:
I"ll try my best to go there 2x a week
No need for gym currently lol


#244

2x a week is too short on hot +30C days…


#245

:frowning:
I"ll try 3x a week…


#246

30C here today… i"ll try to water 2x a week.
I checked my inground cherimoya seedlings, they look ok

Also rooting a few more shangri la mulberry cuttings. My trees were to bushy near the ground and i took all those branches off and took the oportunity to try and root them. Lets see if they take, these 2 trees were from rooted cuttings so i think i"ll get a few more

My oscar mulberry cuttings seem to be fine, hopefully developing new roots by now
