Tea (Cutting)

VF1's Edible Fruits

Comments: -

Thought I'd give it a go and have my own fresh green tea. May be a while yet as plant only small.

Will be kept potted probably for another year until it has grown a bit more. Will be with other acid-loving plants like blueberries and ugni. Seems to be fast growing, as has doubled in size in 4-5 weeks (was about 15cm when bought).

Tea Plant (Seedling) 5/10

Jane16's Edible Fruits
Update: 881 days 7hrs

Comments: - When I transplanted it, I accidentally damaged most of the roots. Also, the next 3 days after it was transplanted was 35C plus. It was been watered daily and placed into low sun for 1 day (shade most of the day, maybe 1-2hours of full sun). I then moved it into the bathroom where it has been for the past few days. It's now receiving filtered light for most of the day. It's really struggling right now, the leaves are all droopy. But there looks like there might be some new growth so fingers crossed...

Planted: 2018

Height 0.3 metres

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Shade

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Blood and bone, rock dust, 100% organic compost

Pest Control: Not needed yet

Organic Status:Organic
