TOPIC: Eucalyptus Nicholii

Eucalyptus Nicholii 3 years 2 weeks ago #15732

Eucalyptus Nicholii



If you keep them ontop of other soil then the tree can form roots through the drainage holes down into it.
I just made this one so it could go either way at the moment, fingers crossed.



I took it off the other pot to show how small it's pot is.




The bulge at soil level is called a Lignotuber, this is something Eucalypts develop and is part of it's survival mechanism.
In bushfires and drought it is this Lignotuber which helps to keep the tree alive, resprouting from it and storing energy.




It's all Bonsai so have a go

If the good points stand out more than the defects, the defects wil no longer be inportant.

Orlando, you know i'm asking for a photo before I could say anything about your Euc ,it could have slowed down over winter, soil drying too often, hard to say ;)

I haven't grown them very long and I don't have an advanced one.
The little ones I do have prob much like yours,
I have been keeping 2 in this gravel with water in it



because they seem to love alot of water
and the tube pots dry out too quick,
judging by those fat white roots I'd say yeah baby.



The foliage is not too shabby




You do need to ensure the soil is freedraining and plenty of Sun,
after repotting water is esential to survival,

This Euc decipiens dies back when not enough water supplied





Eucs like alot of other species are really quite drough tolerant in the wild
where the roots have established deep links to natural water but in pots they are dependant on feeder roots getting the water they need.

plenty of water good sunshine and healthy foliage.

Thanks for the advice,

I think the problem is not enough water, i keep them on the dry side.

Sometimes aussie natives slow right down when the roots have become a little too many.
I'd imagine those have many roots which have coiled around the bottom of the styro cups and
are maybe not getting enough water. It's always tricky as you know.
I'd prob pull a couple out and cut roots by half , plant again and trim the stem, keep moist.
I repotted another larger euc once and it was potbound within about a month and putting all these
roots out above the surface, it was insane.Very vigerous root systems.
Other times they are just really really slow at reshooting at the terminal bud but if they are trimmed back it will stimulate the tree into action again.
C how you go .

p. - alot of aussie natives are not liking heavy P in the ferts.

I did a repott a month ago.I had them planted in one tray and separated them. I did a little root pruning.
The first growing season they where not so happy either.
I will follow your advice and see if they regain health.Otherwise I will try again.

I know this is an old Post. Are there any updates? I'm interested in trying to grow these and I'm curious about how they've progressed in the past year, or if anyone else has tried these.
