    Matthias it will keep growing upwards creating new branches and leaves and so on as it goes and the lower ones that are not needed anymore will fal off. Your Poincian is looking very good. The other thing you will need to do is keep transplanting it to wider pots everynow and again if you want it to keep getting taller. Los ramas tiene lo mismo anchura que los raices casi, y lo mas espacio que dejas para los raices lo mas alto y mas grande se crezca este tipo de arbol.

    Yes, this is what I see and what I'm hoping as well, that it will keep growing.

    Mi pregunta era: En el momento hay sólo un punto del que salen ramas, es el troncocito. Me pregunto si un día también una de las ramas se divide en dos ramas, o sea que hay más puntos de dividirse y de crecer, y cómo se inicia esto.

    Si pero solamente cuando se crezca mas. La mia esta haciendo mas ramas pero ya tiene mas de un metro de altura. Las nuevos ramas estan saliendo de las ramas que ya existe, mas o menos encima.

    Hey Nath - finally! Here are your long-awaited Yellow Framboyan flowers. These trees are not all that spectacular, just basically willowy blooming sticks.

    I have seed, if you'd like to trade.

    Hola Lorax,
    A cambio te podría ofrecer semillas de cualquier árbol de Alemania, por ejemplo de castaño:

    Hey Lorax, it may be spindley but the flowers are very pretty. I am trying to imagine what a whole tree in flower must look like. As to the trade yes please what do you need. I currently have a surplus of Tomatillo seeds, Californian Poppy(Orange Variety) Lilly, Mexican Marigold, or maybe you want to wait until I get back from Mexico and see what I can pick up there. Send me a PM and we can sort it out.

    Hola Nath,

    En diciembre, poco antes de Navidad, regresé de Cuba y desde entonces noto que una de mis plantas ha dejado de crecer. La más grande y robusta, completamente verde, unos 50 centímetros de altura y con un tronco de casi un centímetro de gordo encima de la tierra. No crece aunque parece sana según sus hojas. Hoy he visto que su punta, en donde normalmente crecía, se pone amarillo. Mira las fotos. ¿Qué será que la falta? ¿Tienes una idea? Estoy preocupado...

    Saludos

    Matthias

    Se necesita mas espacio en la maceta - es tiempo a poner uno mas grande. Esta parada porque falta espacio.

    Pero, la maceta ya tiene 30 centímetros de diámetro y 24 de altura... ¿a dónde pongo una maceta con dígamos de 60 centímetros, y cómo la maneja? :-)

    Gracias de todas maneras por tu respuesta.

    Hola Gurucubano feliz nuevo ano! Acuerdate que nesecitas lo mismo tamano de espacio en la maceta por los raices que lo ancho de los ramas, ademas en este epoca con poco luz y un monton de frio el arbol esta medio dormida. Llegue de Mexico por aca y casi llore por el estado de mis Delonix porque cayo casi todos de los ojitos pero acorde que lei que en Florida este pasa cada invierno, espero un poquito y justo hoy note que tengo nuevos ramitos creciendo donde se cayo los viejitos, no sabes cuanto alivio senti porque estos arboles son como mis ninitos sabes?

    Bueno esperete un poco hasta Marzo o Abril y estoy seguro que tu Delonix va a seguir creciendo, ya no estamos en el America Latino con su buenisimo clima nesecitamos tener un poquito mas de paciencia aqui en Europa.

    Cuando llegues a Marzo dale un poco de Miracle Grow o Epsom Salts y estoy seguro que te vas a ver un gran diferencia.

    Un abrazo

    Natan

    Perdon GuruCubano deberia decir cuando lluegamos a marzo, estoy perdiendo mi Espanol aqui en Inglterra como nunca fue a la escuela en Mexico de nino tampoco soy de los pobres, y talvez por el vino tinto que estoy disfrutando.

    Cuidate!

    He cavado un poco con las manos en la maceta y no encuentro raices que puedan chocar con la pared de la maceta. No creo que se trata de falta de espacio.

    Al inspeccionar la planta con atención me di cuenta que tiene algunos granos amarillo-marones en sus ramas. No se mueven ni se puede quitarlos con las uñas sin hacerle daño a la planta. ¿Qué será?

    Estos son bichos - parecen Scale Insects a mi. Tienes aceso al Pyrethron o otra insectisida derivada del chrysanthemum? Esto le cura en una semana.

    Well Nath, I don't know how your royals are doing (language? lol) but mine are in really really poor shape. No idea why. One of them is now just a stick in a pot, starting to go brown at the top so not a goo sign. The other three have very small amounts of growth at the top that just can't seem to get going. I don't know what else to do other than wait! Poor babies :(

    Well in a last ditch effort I have repotted them into a different mix. The other one was absolutely saturated. Like if you squeezed a handful, water streamed out. It broke down really fast - was pretty free draining about 9 months ago!

    Didn't have any larger pots , so they are in the same ones. Think they are a little cramped but at least the mix they are in is much much better. Will see about getting them in bigger pots once they are back in good health (if they get there!!!)

    I haven't watered them since the repot. The roots were so wet, and I have read that dry spells can be good for them so might wait until morning before watering them. Or is this the complete wrong thing to do? I'm not used to these lol.

    Ahora, a mitad de marzo, ha empezado a crecer otra vez. Sale una ramita allá donde en enero se le cayó su punta después de haberse puesto marón.

    Aasir22,

    I have has some problems but decided to get drastic and removed all the lower branches and left the topmost ones and it seems to have done the trick as new baby branches are coming out where I removed the old ones and also the topmost branch is healthy with new growth, i'll see how they progress through spring and let you know. I did have problems though because i left them in the care of someone else while we were in mexico for 7 weeks and they suffered a lot due I think to lack of water and sunlight. I'll keep you updated.

    El framboyán ahora en mayo ya tiene una altura más que un metro, pero sólo echa nuevas ramas en un solo punto, o sea no se parte en más ramas que por sí tienen puntos de crecimiento... ¿Qué hago? ¿Le corta su punta? Por debajo le caen a veces ramas, por ejemplo después una semana cuando estaba fuera de mi oficina y nadie le daba para beber. Tiene hasta la mitad de su altura sólo el tronco...

    Saludos

    Lo hice ya dos veces, pero cada vez sale una sola rama de nuevo y no más ramas en otras partes. ¿Qué será que le falta? Ya tiene una altura de 105 centímetros encima de la tierra y se ve muy sana, creo que.

    Saludos
