potting tropicals

Post  MikeG on Fri Nov 05, 2010 11:46 am

Hi all. I have a Grewia occidentalis still in a nursery pot. I have brought it in for the winter and it is still growing vigorously under my MH. I'm wondering when is the best time to bare root and start training for a smaller pot as it seems it wont really have a dormant period. Ive trimmed the roots once already without bare rooting but really want to get it out of the poor soil it is in now.

Thanks, Mike

Potting Tropicals

Grewia is a full tropical from Malawi & South Africa. It has no dormant period. I assume by MH you mean a metal halide light. You can repot it any time.
The drawback I have found with Grewia is that eventually the branches outgrow the trunk & it needs to be completely restyled. Of course that was under fluorescent lights for the winter, so you may have different results.
