Camillea collection progress

Postby Joe.sab » September 11th, 2018, 7:04 pm

Hi all I thought to share this experience with you guys, not sure if it’s going to be good or bad ( will find out together) :palm:
Last month i bought these beauties sasanqua camilleas 10 of them (12 years old) mid of August I dug them out and keept must of the fine roots with them (was hard jop) had my brother to help me, i put the roots in bags to keep them moist I planned to repot the day following because it was night already ( time went fast) ,
Repotting the day after first thing in the morning i put them in foum boxes and colander with slow releas fert, i defoliate them ( all the leaves out) or must of them ,cuts the big and thick roots to fits to the colander as well, in the time i was collect them they was finished flowering ,now every two weeks i give them seasol and misting during the day :fc:
the leaves still green but no sign of new growth:( i keep them in morning sun position,
I will keep update this post anyway, ( if you guys interested :lost: )


The other one is camillea Japonica it was in my garden about 6 years old last year it was struggling not sure why ( I think it was the place with too much sun in it) :imo: i dug this one in mid of June (I know it’s wrong but had no choice) it was like dying so i had to get it out, new sign of growing buds there but not strong once .

Any advice from the experience people would be nice.
Cheers
Joe

Good news, I would start power feeding every fortnight to push as much growth as you can before summer.
