Aegle Marmelos in container
I have a few sorry looking plants of aegle marmelos, which, I believe, is related to the citrus family.
They are in miracle grow potting soil, but havent grown in months, have lost a lot of leaves - just generally, very sick.
However, I believe they can be revived. They do have very long roots, last time I checked.
I have read a bit about Al's Gritty mix and I would like to transfer these plants into it. I have been able to locate a source for the Gran-i-Grit and Turface Allsport. For the pine bark fines, I think I will have to make so with Repti-bark from Petco.
My question relates to the fertilizer. I havent read all the threads and discussion on fertilizing the plants grown in Gritty mix.
Can Al or someone please recommend what I can do for the fertilizer? Or should I even fertilize it before the plants recover? I think I have the liquid Miracle Grow (green bottles) and I also have a small bottle of SuperThrive. I am going to go and get the Turface and Gran-i-Grit this weekend and also the repti-bark. I am wondering what to get for the fertilizer part - I read about Foliage Pro. Is that something readily available. If not, is there something else readily available at Home Depot/Lowes/Walmart?
I live in Raleigh-Durham, NC.
I will try to post pictures of my sorry looking plants in a day or two. And then hope to post pictures of revived plants in a few months time :), for comparison.
