Properties & Care

How do you take care of a Breadfruit tree?

  1. Pot and soil:
    • Use a large pot with excellent drainage to accommodate the tree’s growth. Choose well-draining, loamy soil rich in organic matter.
  2. Sunlight:
    • Provide as much sunlight as possible. Place the potted tree in a location with at least 6–8 hours of direct sunlight each day. Consider using grow lights when indoors.
  3. Temperature:
    • Protect the tree from cold temperatures. Breadfruit is sensitive to temperatures below 10°C. Move the pot indoors during the colder months or provide a warm, sheltered environment.
  4. Watering:
    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Proper drainage is essential.
  5. Fertilization:
    • Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations, and reduce or stop feeding during the dormant period in winter.
  6. Pruning:
    • Prune the breadfruit tree for shape and to remove dead or overcrowded branches. Pruning helps maintain a healthy canopy and improves air circulation.
  7. Pollination:
    • Breadfruit trees are typically pollinated by the wind. Ensure good airflow around the tree to facilitate pollination.
