I just bought a small seedling of Ceylon cinnamon tree. Any advice on its care?
What kind of soil it loves. Can I use normal potting soil. What is it sunlight and water requirement?
I bought a Cinnamon tree at Home Depot last November for 5.00.
Don't know its species, but it is Cinnamon.
It was doing fine until spring when I decided to prune. Since, it hasn't put on any foliage..It's outside, in full sun. Temps have been super hot here, so lack of growth could be because of heat or very root bound..
Of what I read, it needs semi-acidic, well-draining soil in full to partial light.
Actually, can't find much info either. For instance, which is the best fertilizer, temps, etc.
Before winter, it will go in a larger pot. I had a Cinnamon before, but it died..Guess that's the reason I haven't repotted..but because it did well over-winter, I plan on repotting soon.
Here's a pic of mine..Is it the same as yours?
Tnaks for your recommendation on caring
My plant looks similar. It is little bit paler that your leaves.Could be due to shipping shock. Is yours is Ceylon Cinnamon? There is an another variety called Cassie cinnamon available in plenty here.
Above is my plant
Rajiram, your Cinnamon looks like mine.
It didn't have a tag so I don't know its species. Only that it's Cinnamon.
What size is the pot? Did your plant come bare root? Toni
I bought it online. Shipped from florida. It is 4" tall.It came with soil.
Do you know the pot size?
It was strange Plant was small . But the pot was big,6" dia and 7"tall.Of all the plant that I got online, this is the only plant that came with more soil and big pot.
Raj, will you keep your plant in the 6" pot? Aren't you worried it will rot.
I repotted it to a small pot. Root is small. The soil is loose black and sandy. So it didn't hold the roots intact. Half of the soil around the root came off.
I am worried whether it can handle the shock. Any idea how sensitve is its root system? How good it handles the repotting?
