How to plant an Okrung Tong Mango Tree
- Choose a sunny location for planting. Be sure to allow a 15 foot diameter space for the tree so it has room to grow.
- Do not mix any potting soil, manure, fertilizer or anything with the soil when you plant
- Take the tree out of the container by laying it on its side and slipping the container off
- Bury the root ball so the soil level is the same as it was in the container
- Leave a mound around the tree for form a basin, fill with water, washing the soil into any empty pockets around the root ball
- Now is the time to fertilize. Be extra careful because mangoes are very susceptible to burning with excessive fertilizing
- Recommended fertilizer: 8-3-9 (or similar), with manganese, iron and zinc. Scatter one level tablespoon per foot of tree height
- Established mango trees are very thrifty, requiring less fertilizer
Watering your Okrung Tong Mango Tree
- Month 1: Soak thoroughly twice a week or more if required
- Month 2-3: Water once a week
- Month 4-12: Water weekly during dry spells
- Established mango trees are very thrifty, requiring less water
Fertilizing Okrung Tong Mango Trees
- 2-3 Years: Once a month, scatter one level tablespoon of 12-5-9 fertilizer per foot of tree height, except in November through January
- Fruiting Trees: Switch to a 4-4-8 fertilizer that includes trace elements. Apply once a year, right after the fruit are off the tree
- Scatter 1/4 cup of fertilizer per foot of tree height. The fruits are better if you do not fertilize while it has flowers or fruit on it.
Tree looks good as usual.
The plant is dead
Ordered a Okrung Tong Mango 7gal tree. But had a few spots on the trunk oozing pink to red fluid. Contacted customer support several times to ask if it was due to a disease. First they said it is stress and should dry up. Instead the tree continued to ooze fluid after 2 weeks and in even more spots. I tried again to ask support by email about this. Support just says, send me the pic of the whole tree and then says it's all fine, without actually addressing the concerns of the increased incidents of oozing liquid. I guess they don't care once the tree is shipped. Taking away 2 stars for the issue and lack of proper support response.
Giving 3 stars because the tree is good sized for the 7 gal and was reasonably priced and hoping it eventually stops oozing fluids. I have bought two other mango trees shipped from Florida to California which are doing fine, but never had such an oozing liquid issue before like in this one.
Plant was great thank you
