  • Why would a new bud no want to open?

    I have couple new trees I purchase or get in trade that either came with or produced tip buds just past a leaf. They have no opens in couple weeks where I have another tree that had couple damage leaf and couple leaf with fig rust on them so I pulled them all off and with in2 week there's new buds and leafs all over that tree now. Are these stubborn buds just being stubborn? One trees stubborn buds look like it was ganna open but now look like is browning. I have no over watered and is under great lights and warm humid environment. Is there a way to help buds open?

      Could be in a growth lull, not quite dormant. Patience and fertilizer should do it.

        If the plants were in the process of going dormant before you got them, their metabolism has slowed down and may take a long time to ramp up.
        Last winter I tried to keep my small Preto going at a window all season. It did not lose any leaves but did not gain any until spring and stronger sunshine.

          Yup, what others say. Plants are sensitive to number of daylight hours and position of sun as well as temp. Seems they just know when not to put on new growth. If not in growing mode water carefully.

            Think I should decrease the surrounding temps until I can keep in about 40F for a few weeks? I wanted to keep them growing all season for tis season but if they no want to grow more now why waist lights and possible other damages? For instance one tree in general had one leaf with rust. I remove just that one leaf and now is small green bud at soil line come out. So some part of it want to grow but existing leaf and bud do nothing. Maybe I wait a while and see what happen.

              Is this the Fico Pesco d'Oro I sent you? When I sent it to you, all my trees were starting to slow down and now are dormant, could be sleepy.

                The main trunk on one of my younger trees this summer would not grow. It hit about a foot tall and then completely stopped growing. By the end of the summer, 3 suckers surpassed it in height. How do you guys explain that??

                  I also have a few plants who did such nonsense.
                  I think this year I will do some airlayers on such rapid growing suckers...or keep the sucker and airlayer the original trunk?

                  I ended up cutting out a sucker and the main trunk when I did my pruning.

                  Do it work reverse as well? If you pinch top leaf it promote new growth sรฌ?

                  If you rub off bud or remove sucker will promote growth to top?
