From Bonchi to "production" again?
« : Syyskuu 01, 2011, 20:08:18 ip »
What are the odds to make the bonchi grow again and make good yield?

Is is just potting it back to a big bucket and start giving nutrients or does it need a smoother start?

All hints appreciated.

If you mean transferring it back to a big container the odds for it to start growing well are very good!

Actually, the first plants I collect pods from in my greenhouse are plants which are bonchi's that have been turned into "regular plants".

The good root system and perfect trunk will give them a nice head start compared to plants which are still seedlings at the beginning.

For many varietes, making bonchis to  produce again, is quite possible. I don't know about differences between variestes, but at least by Aji Cristal and Lemon Drop are producing OK after being bonchi-like during the winter. The third pic of this post shows the Aji Cristal and Lemon Drop is in the fifth pic of this post. The LD pic is from two months ago, and the plant is now much bigger.
