Looking very nice, I thought they would grow a lot slower.
Still using the same soil?
Yes & gave them a good fertilizing too these Elongata kind of gave me a big surprise they were very stringy coming out of winter I transplanted them in bigger pots fertilized put them in the greenhouse got a little burnt in the beginning then shot right up got thick & bushy I can't believe how fast they are growing and are growing many times faster than the Sacra . a much rarer Boswellia also what ever I did they like it
I also used a regular potting soil + manure and then i mixed sand in, then during the summer time I transferred it into my greenhouse outside but i brought it inside during the winter with grow lights & heat mats, I have 13 growing now but i also grow other resin tree's like the red sandlewood.
Yes I had Red Sandlewood did really well first year second year died on me might try again , I also have Dracaena Draco (Dragons Blood ) have about 40 of those growing and doing really well
Hi, I'm Todd,
I've been growing boswellia for nearly four years now and have amassed eight species that I cultivate. My Elongata is huge over a meter tall and I have a good size neglecta also.
Other species include sacra/carteri, ameero, dioscoridis, socotrana, nana. I love these trees and found I grow them very well. Here is a pic of my neglecta just after repotting...yes it is way bigger now.
