    I grow mangos from seed too. if it is 2 years old I would put it in full sun so it grows faster. The best one i have is from a seed that sprouted in a compost bucket.

    I think mangos may bear fruit when 5/ 6 year old.

Will have to research your others aswell Graviola, rambutan, jackf.
    Mabuhay!

    Good for you. We really should grow our own food, the benefits may not be visible for awhile but in the long run you know that its there. And just like stefpix said, place it in fullsun and it would take that time before it bears fruit or a max of 10 years or so. There's also a proper way when cutting branches of your fruit trees.

    Actually, there's a method which i've heard & witness how it was done. I forgot its technical term but they say if you want your fruit trees to grow faster, produce more fruits faster and healthier combine 2 to 3 fruit trees (same plant) while they're still young. My neighbor did this to his jackfruit (local term "langka") and sugar-apple (local term "atis"). If i'm not mistaken he was able to harvest jackfruits in a span of 4 years and his sugar-apple is always producing fruits. But, if you already have grafted fruit trees you no longer need to do this. Some farmers i've talked with also use this kind of method.

    Just plant 2 similar fruit trees near each other maybe a foot apart with simllar heights too. Make sure they're both healthy and pest free. Let them rest for 2months in their location. Afterwhich, in the main trunk of both trees scratch-off the bark (kinda like a light deep-wound) until the greenish part is exposed. But don't scratch the whole circumference of the trunk. You don't want to kill it. OK! Then try to combine the "wounded" parts of the 2 young fruit trees. You have to make sure that the "wounds" are "on your face kinda thing"...like kissing each other deeply. Imagine the letter "X" somehow the 2 trunks would look like it. Before wrapping it up, you can put moss to cover the 2 trunks so that the healing would be faster but you have to wrap it up tightly that there's no chance for the two to separate especially when the wind blows. You really have to make sure the wounds are deep-enough and the 2 trunks are really tight or else the method won't work. The fact of the matter is that after 6 months to a year the 2 seedlings are one when you take out the wrapping. Don't share this with anyone this is our little secret.

    In your picture, you can buy another seedling (ie mango) then plant the two on the ground now. Then when its around 5 feet and with good (wooded) trunk circumference then that's the time to use this method.

    DISCLAIMER:use this method on young fruit trees when they're at their most pliable and still growing. My best reference would be my "jackfruit" picture.


    Goodluck and Godbless

    Default Recent Kadayawan Festival

    Mabuhay!

    Hey folks, i would like to share with you a blog about the Kadayawan festival where our National Orchid the "Waling-Waling" will always be the queen of vandas.

    http://pinoytrees.blogspot.com/2011/...ng-waling.html

    @jeff
    You can grow trees in big containers/pots.

    PS
    KADAYAWAN is a Bagobo term for celebration of a bountiful harvest, Kadayawan is derived from the aboriginal word "dayao" which means good or "madayaw," things that are of great value or is profitable, superior or beneficial.

    Enjoy.

    Default Needing help in identification and an Orchid

    Mabuhay!

    Hi everyone. I would like to seek your help in identifying this plant,the one with a star-shaped leaves. It's usually sold in department stores and considered to be a lucky plant. I would like to know what it is. I thank you in advance for any response.




    A NOID. This baby makes me smile, she's quite temperamental. First time to bloom in my care and its really a very slow grower. The flowers just makes me laugh. : laugh:



    Enjoy and Godbless

    thank you so much. Yehey! now it has a name. I've checked google and you also have one of this. Anyway, how do you take care of it? Mine gets a lot of sunlight and i guess they love water too.

    Do you have an idea about the first picture?

    thank you and Godbless
