For a unique and exciting experience, you can have a Rambutan Tree from the Amazon Rainforest in your home. There are several care tips that you should follow for Rambutan Tree planting which will ensure that your new Rambutan grows healthy and well. Follow these steps and you will be able to give your Rambutan a home in your back yard for the rest of his life.
Rambutan’s are extremely sensitive in the sense that they need very rich soil to grow in, along with a good amount of regular rainfall. You can create this extremely rich soil by using a compost. You can purchase or collect a variety of different kinds of natural fertilizers from around your area. Start with the organic variety, as it is much more beneficial for growing rambutan tree. Once you have created the compost, the next step is to gather the soil and place it into a large tarp and spread it over the entire surface of the soil.
After you have placed the large tarp over the soil, it is time to spread some natural cow dung manure on the soil, this manure contains beneficial nutrients for your Rambutan plants. The beneficial nutrients help the tree to form root tissues, which is what helps him to develop strong and healthy branches. Continue to spread the manure on the soil for another week before using it to seed the tree. When preparing the soil for seed, it is important that you use gloves, as the natural fibers in the manure can be harmful to your hands if handled in an improper way.
After the first two weeks of growing your rambutan tree in his new environment, it is important that you water only your plants, and never water the soil. If the soil remains moist for too long, then the roots may rot from the exposure to the water. This is why you should only water your plants every two weeks or so. Also, be sure to only water the soil when it is dry out, as watering before the soil is dry will cause your Rambutan tree to take water from the nearby water source instead of storing it in its own stores. For optimum growing conditions, it is best to only water your Rambutan plants during the spring season and never let the soil dry out completely between watering.
Now that you have prepared the soil and are ready to start growing your rambutan plant, there are a couple of things you should remember before you begin. First, make sure to mulch the tree. It is best to use a light brown mulch, as it will provide insulation for the tree and help keep the soil moist, preventing the growth of mould and mildew. Also, it is important that you keep your Rambutan tree well watered and fertilized, and do not water them past their initial growth period.
One important thing to remember about Rambutan trees is that they are slow growing, and some of the species can take up to three years to produce a single bloom. They are extremely popular around the world as exotic hardy plants and are very easy to take care of. In fact, they are an ideal starter plant for anyone interested in taking care of tropical plants. They are also highly popular with people who are into horticulture and grow their own vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Even if you do not grow plants in your own garden, it is always possible to purchase seeds from breeders and propagate your plants from these.
