Help with identifying this rapidly growing plant

Posted: 17/02/2013 at 05:06

Yes, but I thing, the thick "wooden" stem stand for some years. Any gardener save seeds for growing in the next year and another say, that P.o. is a self sowing plant, they love the "tree-like" plant. And everybody have own opinion or experience. Greeting, ThaiGer. Look HERE.

Help! Droopy fig

Hello Welshonion, watering and set it in a sunny, wind-quite area outdoor for some houres every day, indoor on a sunny place-not so much water (test the pod-ground, must be dry, it don't like cold feeds). Maybe give some drops of liquid fertilizer in the water. Try to care it for 3-4 weeks. Later, if strong enough, cut back to the 5th leaf. But please read the infos I found in a UK-website (look under "pruning"). Best luck, ThaiGer.

Also prune your tree after frost and cut the crown back and any dead or demaged branches too, so it will stronger grown.

Hello nutcutlet, this one I saw in a Chiang Mai-Park- a 15! years oldtree. The gardener tell me that Indian Bean is "indestructible", robust and irrepressible! Butis a "pest" in home-garden because of fallen blossoms, leafs and so on...I think you must "clean" arround the stem everytime-the roots need oxygen to much. But best luck with the Shadow Tree (or with cleaning?), ThaiGer.

Hi holidigger, long time ago I live in The Gambia for 2years ("boat on the river"). The problem is the fact that an appletree need a long time of cold weather to blooming. But you can reed THIS article for some tricks. Good luck, ThaiGer.
