I live relatively near the coast of middle South Carolina. I know
mango trees prefer dryer and more tropical environments, but I
recently purhased one that is currently about a foot high. The man I
purchased it from told me to put it in a bigger pot and to bring that
pot in before it got cold. Then, he said it could be planted in the
ground when it got warm again.
A few questions I forgot to ask:
1) I have put the mango tree into not only a big pot, but really a
huge pot. This pot is about 2 feet in diameter at the top and the
diameter looks like it gets closer to about a foot or so towards the
bottom but the pot itself is also about 2 feet high. I have filled
this thing with some rocks at the bottom and various organic potting
soils and have stuck the mango tree in there...I'm wondering if maybe
I could just keep it in the pot ? Or will it eventually outgrow this
pot, even though it's big?
2) I realize fruit is probably a long shot, but what can I do to try
to make it fruit?
