Take a ripe guava and cut he guava into slices to propagate guava plants from guava seeds
Then prepare the pot filled with potting mix with equal parts compost, sand, and soil and place the sliced guava fruits into the center of the pot
Cover the slices guava with thin layer of soil and water them thoroughly for easy germination of guava seeds
Place the pot in a warm place as the guava plants grow well in humid and dry climates.
But the guava plants have very little tolerance for frost or chilly weather
Keep the soil moist by watering when the top of the soil starts to feel dry
After 30 days the guava seeds will start germinating and have grown upto to 2 inches.
After 90 days, the plants would have grown well by 1 feet and now we can transplant them to individual grow bags for better growth
Choose garden grow bag of 12 inches wide and 12 inches deep and am transplanting the seedlings into Individual garden grow bag
Dig a hole half again as deep and twice as wide as the tree’s roots. Add a cupful of all-purpose fertilizer to the bottom of the hole
Set the plant in the hole so that the soil mark from the sapling on the stem is at the surface level as the surrounding soil.
Spread the roots out in all directions.
Spread 5-10 cm. of organic mulch over the root area
Water the plant well just after transplant.
Continue irrigating it throughout the entire next growing season.
Guava is a heavy feeder and responds well to manuring.
Guava responds well to the monthly fertilizing.
Hence, fertilize your potted guava tree to speed up the growth of the plant.
Incorporate lots and lots of compost and plenty of cattle compost before you plant your bananas.
In case of young plants, the fertilizers may be applied in circular trench along the periphery of the root zone.
In case of older plants the fertilizers may be broadcasted over a radius of 120cm from the base and forked in lightly without damaging the roots.
The organic manure may be applied as mulch on the surface.
Then mulch them very thickly. And keep mulching and feeding them
Once your Guava tree becomes mature enough to produce fruit, fertilize it with 15:5:30 fertilizer regularly
Guava tree will take 2-3 years to mature and start to form fruits.
The guava tree blooms in early spring, but may bloom all year in mild climates
We need to prune and trim the guava tree regularly to encourage the growth of large, high-quality guava at the edges of the trees.
Keep the soil evenly moist for best fruit production; allow the top 2 or 3 inches of soil to dry before watering again.
If the soil goes completely dry, flowering may be delayed or fruit may drop. Reduce water in winter.
Guava fruit will be ripe and ready for harvest about 120 and 150 days after pruning the Guava trees
In warm year-round locations, guava can produce two crops each year, a large crop in summer followed by a smaller crop in winter.
Ripe guavas will develop mature light green as they ripen
