healthy awesome tree
My jocote tree arrived around 7 days after ordered. It had no leaves or branches and a very few roots. It was dry bout 5 inches from the top. The rest of the trunk was a little wrinkleed. The soil was very wet but it smelled like a sewer pipe. It's my first time ordering a tree online so I don't know if this is normal. I planted it as indicated with the proper weather conditions and draining soil but after about 2 weeks, I see no improvement. I will keep my fingers crossed and hope it wakes up
I live in Phoenix and ordered this plant about 3 weeks ago. Ordering plants here this time of year is always risky because it can be really hot and they can be killed in transit if not taken care of. I got the expedited 2 to 3 day shipping.
Fortunately its been a cool beginning to summer meaning the day the plant arrived was only 91, not 100+. However, Fed Ex seems to have done a terrible job of taking care of my plant because they had it in the truck pretty much the whole day. I was home when it arrived and my entryway is north facing, always in the shade but I could tell it had been warm because the box felt really warm to the touch. Sure enough, the plant was really wilted and its root ball was pretty much shattered. I stuck it into the ground right away and hoped for the best. It lost all its leaves within 24 hours and starting turning black from the top down over next couple of weeks. Fortunately, jocotes are known to be grown from just a stick. This plant was tough. It is now sprouting close to its base and being an airlayer I don't have any worries about it being true to type. So I give Fedex a really bad rating in this case. They really ignored the perishable markings on the box. Fortunately Everglade farms sent a plant with enough gusto to make it through. Looking forward to some fruit next year!
Well the plant is too small yet we’ll see how reacts the rest of the year. It looks good,
Do you have a different class of jocote? Please reply.
