How to take care of a Lemondrop Mangosteen tree ?
- Suitable Growing Conditions:
- Pot Selection: Choose a large pot with good drainage to accommodate the tree’s growth. A pot with a diameter of at least 24 inches (60 cm) is recommended.
- Potting Mix: Use a well-draining potting mix with slightly acidic to neutral pH. Enhance drainage by adding perlite or sand.
- Sunlight: Place the potted tree in a location that receives maximum direct sunlight, or use artificial lighting to supplement the lack of natural sunlight in a temperate climate.
- Keep the soil consistently moist but avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot. Water the tree when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging.
- Feed your potted tree with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Select a fertilizer with micronutrients to mimic tropical soil conditions.
- Reduce or stop fertilization during the dormant winter period when growth slows.
- Prune the tree to control its size and shape. Regularly remove dead or diseased branches and any crowded growth.
- Pruning also aids in maintaining air circulation and allowing sunlight to penetrate the canopy.
- Lemondrop Mangosteen trees require high humidity to mimic tropical conditions. You can increase humidity by misting the tree regularly or placing a tray of water near the pot. Consider using a humidifier in indoor settings.
- Lemondrop Mangosteen trees rely on insect pollinators for fruit production. If grown indoors or in a controlled environment, you may need to manually pollinate the flowers using a small brush or cotton swab, transferring pollen from flower to flower.
