Jerusalem Cherry Plant

jdmarsh2gJune 13, 2008

I received seeds from a co-worker.

I have planted the seeds and they are starting to sprout.

I'm looking for guidance as to water fertilizer(sp) etc....

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

This is a tropical plant therefore needs warm temperatures moderate watering with a chance for the top of the soil to dry out & minimal fertilization use a low nitrogen fertilizer

I pretty much ignore mine and they do great. I have a few and some get full sun and others are protected from the late afternoon sun. Both seem to be doing equally well. I feed them infrequently and water when dry. I winter them over in the greenhouse and they usually continue blooming throughout the winter. The blooms aren't much to look at but it's a very pretty bush when covered in the bright red fruit.
