Attention: Container should have small drainage holes and put a small stone on those holes. Require USDA hardiness zones 6-10. While the germination period, don’t overwater. Repotting is necessary (if the plant reaches 7 to 10 inches tall). After 30 to 45 days fertilization is necessary.
Managing Whole Life of Jujube Tree
How to Care to Get Lots of Fruits: Plant growth needs too much caring, if plants are fruit categories. So, the jujube tree is a tropical fruit tree and during the summer time, it gives lots of fruits in a single limb. For the best tips and tricks, we need to follow the below things…
Best Composition: During the growing season, tropical trees don’t require a lot of care, but before the blooming season, fertilize all small plants as well as trees. For best composition, you can add NPK (10-10-10), banana peel, vermicompost and cow dung manure. These composts are easily available in plant nurseries as well as online shops. Composition is necessary every 45 days and at the initial time, when sowing seeds.
Water Timing: Jujube trees don’t require too much water. For the initial stage, give water once a week in summer time (March to August) for small plants. During winter, pour water properly within 10 to 12 days. Before watering, check soil moisture as well. Use spray tank i.e., easily available in the marketplace.
Cutting Session: Cutting is an important process when growing a plant. The plants look attractive and healthy when pruned plum trees or plants. Cut off burnt and discoloured leaves, dry branches, withered fruits, and small weeds. Always use cutting weapons and equipment. While cutting, wear hand gloves.
Diseases & Pests: Mostly leaf mites, snails and slugs, bees, beetles, grasshoppers and other types of insects attack the plants or trees. Remember, always spray an insecticidal liquid with water. Use a fungicide powder if there is root rot and fungus in the soil. Best fungicide liquids like liquid copper fungicide, rogar, almonas, and pest fix. Choose these insecticide liquids like biocide, 3-in-1 total plant care, and garden insect spray. These products are easily available in the marketplace or you can buy them from a plant nursery.
Maintain Sunlight & Humidity: Jujube plants require full sunlight. So, keep the plants in full sunlight. In the winter season, you need to maintain the temperature between 18°C to 25°C. If the temperature rises above 30 ° C, then you will have to place it in a greenhouse planting. If there is no greenhouse planting, choose a shady spot or a partial shade location. Heavy temperature (above 30 °C) causes leaf burns and changes in leaf colour from green to brownish black.
Blooming Session: Most of the time blooming depends on the verity of Jujube and location. Blooms begin in late summer (June through August) if yours is in USDA hardiness zones 6-10. Flowers thrive only for 5 to 7 days on a branch. The flowers are 1 to 1.5 cm wide in shiny yellowish colour. After successfully blooming, the tree starts bearing fruit. Do not harvest until the fruit is ripe.
