jabuticaba Propagation

Jaboticaba – Nelson Hernandez, PR

Myrciaria c. spread most frequently from seeds.

However, a couple of years needed only to develop a small seedling. The seedlings are slow to mature and rarely withstand transplantation and trimming bonsai enthusiasts.

The older plants, however, are very tolerant of pruning roots and branches.

Because it is only w growth and takes 8-15 years to bear fruit from seeds generally begin this bonsai fans with the provisions of nursery or pre-bonsai.

Jaboticaba can also be grown from cuttings and air layers. they are still slow to develop trunks.

Jaboticaba Bonsai Care

In the landscape jabuticaba tolerates both full sun and full shade. However, as bonsai, to keep them at their best, I agree with Jim Smith:

I have found that by increasing Jaboticaba under 30% shade, tips lalas leaves no burn as they do when grown in full sun. no doya any other special attention.

you may have heard the myth that these trees do not make the fruit in a bonsai pot.

Jim also told me: “. My bonsai jabuticaba oldest, created by John Naka in 1973, produces fruit every year

Another thing that makes that “burnt tips” is the lack of micronutrients. jabuticaba s is a plant lover acid. Use an organic fertilizer or a fertilizer search indicates that it is a “type of acid.”

“bonsai trees Jaboticaba are” hungry , “Do not skip meals.

Pruning and transplantation

Trim leaves and small branches can be made throughout the year. Check the roots a year, but is unlikely your tree will anualpoda root. the best seasons for pots and transplant are spring and elverano.

When replant Do not cut roots as drastically as you would with a Ficus and does not expect Myrciaria c. to answer as Ficus .

This tree is a slow response ( especially if you prune hard roots ). be patient, it will come back.

Jaboticaba Interior Bonsai trees

This tree is a proven winner as indoor bonsai. At first, it was given in book “Bonsai indoor ‘Paul Lesniewicz.

I’ve seen a number of jabuticaba doing quite well under the lights and eninvernaderos outside the Florida. (I can not promise that will flower and / or fruit.)

As with other tropical products, the Myrciaria c. performs best in warm temperatures and bright light inside. Go atolerar somewhat lower temperatures for a short period, but no frost or freeze. Keep evenly moist but not wet.

problems, pests and diseases

When you buy his jabuticaba, make sure it is well-established. If not, secure the tree firmly in the container. water cautiously. root rot of excess water scarce roots, can become a problem.

aphids are the most likely trouble inside and out. They love the delicate new leaves. In general, this tree is susceptible to very few pests and / or diseases.
