Miracle Fruit. Mini plant

Not sure if I have ever written about this plant. I bought it last year as a “ready to fruit” bonsai miracle fruit plant. Perhaps it was roots or grafted, I’m not sure. I bought it on eBay so who knows 😉

Anyway, it has literally done NOTHING in the six months I’ve had it. I followed the instructions and left it in its pot until some visible growth was seen. I saw none. In fact, it lost a few leaves.

So I decided to finally repot it as one tiny root was poking out of the bottom and as the instructions stated, when this happens I can repot. I left it a bit longer as it looked the same for at least two months. Not getting longer or noticeably growing.

So within a week of repotting, I definitely see new leaves growing!

Finally some noticeable action!

Yep, that’s it. Tiny reddish new leaves in the center of the leaf axial. Perhaps it’s just the time of year for new growth or maybe it was fresh soil and a new pot. What ever it is, I’m very happy!

These are acid loving plants so I added some organic soil acidifier. I believe it is just some sort of a slow release copper mixture.

    hi admin! regarding your miracle fruit i think you have a long way to go before you really see some fruits there… maybe like 3years or so… that seedling looks like a 3year old stock which is good. but you need to transplant that in a deeper buckwt if you want faster growth… ive been plating this type of plant for 2 years now… hehe… been harvesting plump fruits… fertilize and let the sunshine do the job!
