Tamarind (Tamarindus indica)

Post  rexman on Sun Apr 28, 2013 5:30 am

7 years on the pot, 18" height.

Can this be considered "finished"? Pot recommendations?





Manila, Philippines

Rexman,

a little sparse, as foliage goes, and the tree will try to heal that cavity, as it ages.

I found that they look better, in simple pots of brown in colour, but I normally have buds sprouting continuously and the green remains alive with contrast.
If the bark is cracked and furrowed, you still have to go to the next stage of maturity, flaking.

Thanks for showing. Does it flower ?
Later.

Hi Rex.

I think 7 years is too long for this stage.
This is the problem when we forced the tree in a small pot at the early stage, and immediately turned it into "bonsai". The development would be much quicker if it was planted in a bigger pot/container and regularly being repotted. If you just acquired the tamarind, you can consider changing the pot in a bigger one, chances are it is already over pot bound by now. The base/nebari will also get matured if the roots can grow more freely, the branches can grow thicker too.

regards,
jun Smile
