Post pictures of your indoor "condo" mango trees!

lementoJanuary 6, 2014

Hello folks!

I have a young indoor Mallika mango tree and I want to begin some pruning/tipping to begin training it for it's adult size. I want to keep it around 6 ft tall.

I was hoping some of you had nice adult mango trees around this size you could share for inspiration!

Many Thankis!

I have a potted zill mango that fruited this summer. You should trip the top of your mallika so it branches out.

thats a HUGE mango, or its a funny zoom lens ?

It's a big mango relative to the size of the tree, but comparing it to a jackfruit is pushing it :-)

They are about 1.0 to 1.5 lb

Greenman62, it's 100% artificial light this time of the year. It gets too cold near the windows in my Chicago condo and even then it would only get a few hours of light.

Mangobay, I'm definitely going to tip the top. That's a very happy looking container plant! How old is it and what fertilizer do you use?

Is there a better time to tip prune? I just pruned/tipped my pickering and Carrie. Hopefully all goes well.

I read that it should be done after a growth flush
