I grew a Clementine from seed and kept it for at least 12 years. It gave me a single flower in all that time, probably because I didn't keep it cold enough in winter (should be kept at about 50 degrees Fahrenheit). As for height, I intentionally dwarfed it by not repotting it too often - I didn't want to try to carry 50+ pounds of tree in and out of my house ...

The explanation for the sentence you find confusing is, if you plant a seed from a clementine fruit,it won't come true, meaning any fruit you might get is very unlikely to be a clementine - it may turn out to be a sour orange, or a smaller fruit that is bitter, there's no way of knowing. Be warned that some citrus plants grown from seed may want to get huge, ...

I would add Amelanchier alnifolia - quite hardy, good edible fruit (select a variety depending on your requirement). Most often grows to 1–8 m (3–26 ft).

Getting sunlight through glass windows is filtered light at best.. tropical plants of this nature like lots of direct sun, especially in cooler climates.. consider moving her just outside that glass door, using apple slices may help, but also feed with a blooming and rooting formula (higher phosphate on the NPK rating) something like product in photo but ...

If your plant doesn't want to flower by itself, you can try to stimulate it with ethylene gas. There are more ways to get this gas, but the easiest way is to use apple pieces and put them close to the rosette. Here are more methods described for ethylene gas production in order to stimulate flowering in Ananas.

Don't overthink this. In the wild, small trees and shrubs get trodden on and/or eaten by animals all the time, and they don't go extinct because of it. They might not look "perfect" after the damage, but they survive. A shrub such as redcurrant usually has several "branches" growing from the roots, so damaging one is not going to be fatal....

Good effort with the impromtu repair! Depends quite a bit on the species, but generally, if its clean and bound together properly, it can be suprisingly successful, although it might need continued splinting/ structural support. Sometimes simply proceeding as though doing grafting can be successful. Matching up the nutrient transporting tissue is extremely ...

Same happened with us. We got a special fertilizer for citrus and brushed the flowers with a little paint brush not used for anything else and we finally got some. Hope this works for you. It's like being pregnant for 2 or 3 years and not having a baby you are waiting for. So exciting when we FINALLY got fruit. haha

Various species and varieties have different typical flowering durations, but there's generally a good amount of similarity. Some cherry trees, eg some mature older variety sweet dark cherries, may sometimes flower quite intensively for over a week, some branches on the same tree flowering predominantly several days apart. And for the same tree, production ...

It is disease. What is important to know here (Australia) is whether this is puccinia psidii (Myrtle Rust) because the nursery will have to be informed. official info at https://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/invasive-species/diseases-fungi-and-parasites/myrtle-rust Contact details for help in Victoria at: https://agriculture.vic.gov.au/biosecurity/...
