- Seedlings should be removed from the main nursery by lifting with a spade and the roots carefully cut. Seedlings should never be lifted from the soil by pulling the leaves or stem.
- It is important to keep the seedlings in the shade and out of the sun and to have them planted as early as possible after removal from the main nursery.
- Once it has started growing, water the tree frequently. As long as the soil drains well, you really can’t water it too often.
- Some seedlings are heavy feeders that require regular, complete fertilizer. Look for a fertilizer that provides both the basic nutrients plus trace nutrients like boron, manganese, and magnesium.
- In the hot season, grow it outdoors and make sure you place it in a very sunny and warm spot.
