panama berry

    3 responses

NQ Grower starts with ...
hi everyone, i have a panama berry which I would like to keep managed as a small tree in a pot. at the moment it's just a long flimsy shoot - does anyone know if and how long it might take to strengthen up so I can remove the stake? Is there anything I should be doing to encourage this? I have quickly run out of stake and the plant is not strong enough to support itself yet.

Many thanks

My Panama Berry was roughly the same size when it was planted in the garden. I took the suporting stick away and let it droop down. It is much bigger now and even though the branches are thicker it is drooping - it is the nature of this tree.

Thanks guys. Am happy for it to droop but was hoping it would develop a self supporting trunk and the branches would droop from there.
