Natal Mahogany Tree

TakingRoot(Z-7B)January 17, 2004

Has anyone heard of this tree? And does anyone have any "experience" in caring for it? Much needed advice as I have purchased a 7ft tree. All I know is that it likes alot of water and it will grow much taller than it already is. I have posted it on other forums but nobody seems to know much about it. It is from Natal.

I've heard of it and have been trying to find one, but don't know too much about it.

Here's a link to some info I found.

The Bernecker's website has a little info on it, too.

May I ask, where did you find yours?

Here is a link that might be useful: Trichelia - Natal Mahogany

I love it. I have a 30+ foot tree, (6) trunks. It takes a lot of water. It is growing like mad toward the top of my atrium. It is from Africa. Fairly new to USA. Do a google search, using images. I bought it from a boutique nursery. I can go on for days about it. Keep it moist, I mist mine daily from top to bottom. I use Bamboo culms to maintain the trunks erect.

I just bought a natal mahogany 6 1/2 ft tall /5 trunks in a 14" diameter by 12" high container
should i put in bigger pot even if I do not need it to grow much?
Does always keeping it moist cause pest problems? or root rot? ...i heard aphids
