Murraya paniculatta questions

Post  Jay Gaydosh on Tue Oct 26, 2010 2:24 pm

Here is the latest photo of my Murraya paniculatta, with fruit:



I have two questions:

1. The little fruit are really cute, and would be great during a show and tell period, but allowing them to stay on and ripen, is that taking growth potential away from the rest of the tree? I realize this is one slow growing plant. Does pruning off the fruit speed growth up enough to worry about or does the plant need to go through this stage to fully develop?

2. The flowers appear on little clusters, when they fall of the structure of the cluster remains. Does this later become branches? As they appear, they look like ramification of a branch. Again, if this remains for a purpose I would let it remain, but if it doesn't does allowing it to feed off the rest of the plant robbing it of nutrients needed by the branches and leaves?

Thanks,

Jay

Hi Jay,
For me with such a juvenille young tree,i will take off the fruit,it helps faster growth for it concentrate more on the tunk and branches,as for the falling of the flowers,just let the stalk be,eventually it'll fall off also.if you want to speed up growth,plant directly to the ground,much easier & less troublesome.We here in the tropic Philippines grows it more easier.
Hopr this will help a bit
Regards,

Alex,

Planting in the ground won't work here, it gets too cold. I plan on repotting into a larger pot, just haven't gotten around to it.

Thanks,

Jay
