Cork srew plant care for indoors in fall &, winter

I have a large Cork srew that is blooming well but has not set fruit yet. Is there any special care that I need to do indoors to get it to fruit? We are not seeing any signs of cork srew in our neighborhood - only saw two in the tree earlier today. We live in southern CA (zone 7B).

That would certainly depend on the cultivar and where it is. With the type you have posted, you'll need to make sure it has been propagated by root cuttings. A bare root culture will have to be planted outside to mature. Or, you could grow cuttings yourself and plant them next spring. Both techniques are covered in the instructions for this type of plant.

Thanks for the info. You are right, that would be great - I am trying to work out a plan to have it grow and fruit indoors. It is starting to get cold so I need to come up with something by the end of November. If I can't get a fruit, at least I would have nice healthy cork srews for the winter. It's starting to look like we won't be seeing cork srew this year either.

Well, I got it going well this week and had at least two fruit for the first time. It's doing great. However, I didn't have it planted on a nice sunny shelf in the garage and it's facing northeast. It got a little bit of direct sunlight when the sun was high in the sky, but it never got direct sun for more than a few minutes. That doesn't sound like enough time for it to get any real sun. Does that mean it shouldn't get sunlight at all? Anyways, last week I planted it under a grow light that has the light intensity set to 60. That light isn't very bright, but it does seem to keep it happy. When the light turns on and off it looks a little bit leggy, but it seems happy. Does that sound like the right thing to do? Is there something else that I should be doing that it just needs to be transplanted in? I got it from a tree nursery.

So far it seems healthy. Yesterday morning there was a little bit of moisture on the top of the soil. Is that okay or should I be worried? Is that normal? The water doesn't really wet the soil down, it just moist. I'm not sure how much it should be watering. Do you think the water should just be dripping out of the pot?

Anyways, if I get the other cork srews going then I should have no problems. I just hope that it makes it till March or April. We don't seem to be getting any warmer and it's starting to get cold again. I need it to make it till spring so I can get some healthy cork srews for the spring and summer. It also needs to fruit before the cold weather comes.

I bought a bunch of cork srews a few months ago. They are going to be my next spring planting. In fact, I went to a garden center in October and had no problems. I bought cork srews and planted them in a pot. My pot doesn't have a lid, but after the cork srews get bigger and stronger they should be able to go in my garden in spring.

When I first got them, they were tiny and the roots just barely poked out. Since they were in the ground in my garden it had way too much water. I had to move them from their spot. The plants got bigger and stronger but the roots were so weak that I couldn't plant them in the garden. I took them out and cleaned the pot out. That was a little while ago, so I guess it will be another month or so before I can plant them.

The next month I expect to get a whole lot more healthy plants out of it. As for pictures I can't take good pictures of them right now. We haven't had a chance to go outside for a few weeks. We will try to get some in the next few weeks.

I've been making bread for a few months now. I enjoy making it and it does so much for my soul. But I find the rising of the bread a little difficult. I have a kitchenaid bread machine that I bought over 5 years ago. I bought it because I love bread. I made bread so often in college that I finally needed a machine to make bread. The first couple of times I made bread with it I was happy, but the breads I made weren't as good as what I made with the bread machine I had in college. Finally I was happy with the bread I was making.

This winter I am trying to make bread for the holidays. I hope I can make some wonderful, wonderful breads. I will try to get some of my pictures up.
