Mangosteen Light Recommendations
So as some of you know I recently picked up a mangosteen. Murahilin, you asked what my plans were with this. To be honest I had planned to just keep it potted and go from there. After reading a lot of culture requirements I know they need good shade while young but good light when mature. So how is this normally done. Do you have to wait to plant this out. How is this hardened off??? I have a shady area I can plant this in but what happens when it matures. I certainly won't transplant it. Should I just cut back other vegetative growth at that point??? At what height should this be kept for us home gardeners. That's saying it survives this long...Should this be topped??? And how many hours of sunlight would I need. The spot I picked is growing on the west side of my house shaded by several different trees.
