Hoping to Grow Mulberries in Containers

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Rooted Mulberries,  anyone?

Mulberries are colorful berries that are eaten both fresh and dried. They're a good source of iron, vitamin C, and several plant compounds and have been linked to lower cholesterol, blood sugar, and cancer risk.

Malapit na kong mamitas sa aming balcony!

Readying what I need for later afternoon's mulberry cutting planting. It is advisable to replant only at early in the morning or late afternoon when the sun is not at its peak so that the plant won't be stressed too much and have more chances to survive.

20 liters of potting mix, 1 kilo of Epsom salt (aka magnesium sulfate) and of course the biggest but cheapest (and lightest) pot I can find since I don't have any big recyclable containers right now....hhhmmm...come to think of it... there's the old giant styrobox I used to bring home lots of prawns from Davao...maybe I will use that instead...if it is durable enough..will have to make a hole in the bottom though. But for those who have the luxury of land to plant this baby, that would be best.

The 1 kilo of Epsom salt will not be used exclusive to this plant alone as it will be used for along time on all other plants I am and will be growing. Most plants can be misted with a solution of 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of Epsom salt per gallon of water at least once a month to allow plants to better take in valuable nutrients, like nitrogen and phosphorus. It also helps in the creation of chlorophyll, which is vital for photosynthesis. In addition, magnesium greatly improves a plant’s ability to produce flowers and fruit.

Will add soil to the potting mix composed of vermicasts, carbonized rice hulls, and coco peat - a good mix to our composts and other organic fertilizers, including fermented plant, fruit and fish amino acids....not to mention the eggshells and banana peel teas.

Am I over-pampering this baby? Lol!
