Panamaberry

    6 responses

Herbavorian starts with ...
Hi I live in 3500 northwest Victoria. I’ve had my Panama berry for about 9 months and it’s suddenly starting to get yellow leaves and most have black spots. It’s still throwing off new leaves but it’s looking pretty sparse. Is it diseased? It is in a pot as well as I rent. It was pretty healthy for the most part until about a month ago. We had a very hot stretch.
Thanks for any help.

I can't see the black spots, I see a few dry spots. Its probably heat stress, Victoria has been pretty mild and humid until 40'c recently.
What about the heavy rain in your area ??
How do you fertilise it, might have leached away in the rain ??
Maybe some shade protection for the rest of summer and some seaweed liquid fertiliser.

It doesn't seem that unhealthy. Maybe a shot of seasol. The hard part down here is getting them through the winter, and I remember Mildura winters being colder than Melbourne ones, and it's hard enough to get them to live down here.

I'm going to try the new one in a greenhouse over winter in a pot for it's first year, and see if it gets hardy enough.

Great thanks. It’s been in a shadyish spot under grape vines. I’ll shit it with some seasol it’s doing fine now just lost all those leaves and the top ones kept growing. I don’t own a greenhouse so if I hear about frosts will protect if I can.
Thank you

I don’t own a greenhouse..A mattress bag, avail from bed shops for $2 can be rigged to protect, maybe some poly pipe hoops..Not sure how frost tolerant Panamas are, but a decent frost can really knock back growth by half..or kill it.

You guys haven't had as much water as we've had up here in Sydney. Could it just not be getting irrigated enough? We'e had more than a metre of water so far this year which is approaching our yearly rainfall! My Panama berry has tripled in size. It survived it's first winter outside last year but did look very sad. I have it growing against a colour bond shed so it gets some protection and is west-facing so gets the sun.
