Should I Tip now or later? (Mango) (Tipping)

I want my new sapling from seed to split just like her 60+ year old mama. Should I clip just below the purple leaf or wait a couple more weeks for her to mature?

Don't mind the scaring on the mango tree, I had to remove mold and an ant colony after years of neglect.

That's a big Mama!

You're probably better off to do it later once it's built up a bit of strength and some reserves.

I would agree with Tropicbreezent. You can definitely try tipping it now. On the other hand, it may be better if you wait until early spring to do it. Allow your seedling more time to establish itself before winter.

Hey thanks, Tropicbreezent and FruitCally, but I decided to tip it now to allow the base to stiffen up and also because I found a triple sprouted seedling next to my planter. We will see how everything turns out in a couple months.

Thanks again
