Few plants come without a perplexing problem or two. For dwarf flowering quince ‘Chojubai’, the most serious problems are in the roots. Chojubai are strong plants that normally extend 6 “(18”) by wave of growth. If it is not, then, be alert.
A weak tree will not cause the typical extensions of spring and could have a yellowish color. Some are simply weak Chojubai in soil that is too thin, is overwatered or underwatered, or are in pots that are too shallow, and they are easy to correct.
Otherwise the root zone of a Chojubai is susceptible to various problems that can weaken your tree. The first is a nematode, the second is a bacterium, and the third is a root galls and are all separate but interrelated of the disease known as crown gall pieces. it is not common, but if you have a Chojubai, be aware of general weakness. I’ve been looking at this problem for a while, and my apprentice Bobby has been very helpful to discover some of the links also, so I would like to offer here what we are doing now to address these underlying problems.
If you see galls (warty and friends) in the roots of Chojubai, try these treatments:
What seems to be important is to take care of this three-ring circus systematically. First remove the nematode. Then go after bacteria. And finally cut the gallbladder. Even if you’ve killed your nematodes and bacteria, you may have the guts as the DNA of bacteria replicate keep cell division. But if you’ve killed the nematode and is controlling the bacteria, it weakened Chojubai often shows a very quick jump back to strong growth. I have seen new, big, strong and even outbreaks Chojubai leaves in a completely stagnant in less than two months with these treatments.
The nematode is often the main culprit, who seem to think that Chojubai roots are like crack, chocolate, nirvana, or all three. They can knock down the root system of a quince fairly quickly, and then see a weakened tree with roots gimpy system that does not have the typical force of Chojubai. Many other plants Rose family are particularly tasty to nematodes.
Some of the nematodes can be seen without a magnifying glass (I saw some of about ½ “long, and resemble glassy worms), others are almost microscopic. If you find that the gallbladder can assume that have bacteria. it is best to prevent, for example, be careful sterilization of cuts, and nematode control.
hope you can never see more guts on your tree, but if you do, try these solutions to bring your tree back to health
