Jaboticaba - Myciaria Cauliflora
Man, I totally love this tree, but it’s one of those species that has limited information out there when it comes to bonsai culture. Most of what I hear is the usual “don’t mess with the roots”, but then I see videos from Brazil where they cut back the roots the way we would cut back a maple! AND the trees have leaves on them when they do it!
SO, with some pre-bonsai Jaboticaba that now reside in my underground light bunker for the winter, I wanted to start a thread to share knowledge and experience.
When do you re-pot?
How hard to you cut back the roots?
What type of soil works for you?
When do you prune?
When does this tree grow the fastest and when does is go dormant?
Have you ever had fruit?
