Desert Rose transplant questions - Central Texas
I am a new DR mom. I bought three from a local Austin, TX guy that grew many colors from seed. They are all 1 year olds. My first three are supposed to be red, a orange hybrid, and kaleidascope which should be red & Purple. He did say that sometimes they don't come out the right colors though.
I just transplanted all three in Al's Gritty Mix this last weekend. I read on the old post in the Plumeria forum about bringing up the Caudex. Some of the roots are above the gritty mix. I was going to wait two weeks before adding fertilizer. Now I have several basic questions.
Do I trim the roots above soil level?
Is two weeks long enough to wait before fertilizing?
I have Osmocote Plus and was going to buy Foliage Pro and Pro tekt to start using on other plants. Should I use all three together or either Osmocote or the other two?
What concentrations do others use when using Foliage Pro and Pro Tekt together?
Should I water these every couple days for a while? The guy I bought them from said when they are most established, I only have to water every couple weeks but after reading some of the other posts on here, others water a lot more often.
