Hello, I am relatively new to this forum. I am interested in growing a seasonal tree (for instance a Sakura Cherry Tree) in the tropics. I am close to the Equator in South America, and the weather year round is as follows: Daytime temperature: 75-80 degrees Evening temperature: 60-65 degrees Hours of sunlight year round: 12 hours Rainy months: October, November, April and May (rains late in the afternoons) Dry months: July, August, January and February 1. Will seasonal trees such as the sakura tree grow? 2. If so, what is the process for growing them out of a seed in the tropics? 3. Will they bloom continuously? Will they behave like a tropical tree and shed leaves/bloom year round? Best regards, Juan.
