@Richard, that’s a relief to hear regarding the taste of VdB. A couple of ripe jammy fruits I picked yesterday from tree had no taste. I guess I will have to wait till the next year for the real fruit.
hmm, based on your comments, I now bit regret using the self-watering pot. I am still hopeful and will wait till next summer to see how it performs. Saw Ben B. on YT who grows 300+ fig varieties in pots and seem to be in favor of using the self-watering pots. After watching his video, I thought I’d give this pot a try. I like your idea of an automated irrigation system. Hopefully, I will get enough time one day to install it.
Your soil mix seems interesting (no fert or supplements). Could you share your fertilizer regiments for the potted as well as trees in the ground - at the potting time and at regular interval?
I just followed advise from some long time figs growers like Lou Montie on YT who recommends highly of adding Calcium, etc. supplements.
I am fig and fig forums newbie; I did not know you sell plant (great!). Do you sell BM KK or Robert’s Golden Rainbow - website? Just curious. Thanks.
