Problems with white sapotes pics included - White Sapote are famous for doing the occasional heavy leaf drop. New growth is usually just around the corner. This photo shows it quite dramatically.They are of no more use to the plant so could be cut off as I would do with all leaf problems on small ..15hrs37mins
Jackfruit trees in containers - If you are dwarfing a tree in a drum then the best idea is to grow a grafted plant and not a seedling. Then you will be most certain to get fruit as it is already adult productive wood. The very best idea would be to have multiple grafts to one tree and g..15hrs48mins
Jackfruit tap root - I think there is still a chance of it developing another taproot, mainly if it finds better moisture beneath the pot. They can even push a tap root into a porous clay if they find moisture down below. If you dont want a taproot below your potted tree then..5 days 20hrs

Natal plums carissa macrocarpa - This looks quite bad. As it is getting worse and they are relatively easy to get a replacement, sorry but I would be inclined to incinerate the plant and wait some time before trying one again. Unless it is purely of a physical cause such as sunburn, fer..24 days 18hrs
Lychee fruiting in partial shade - I have seen lychee in partial shade. They grow well but as the shade gets heavier the crop gets progressively lesser. If it is quite open to indirect light that is quite fine.The smaller crop will still probably be worthwhile. Worth giving it a go. Is..24 days 20hrs

Pink iona grape - I have seen a pink iona grape with the main trunk going up about 15 feet to a first floor where it fruited. It grew with no problems...35 days 11hrs
