    I'm fairly certain in the absence of fruit you actually have fungus gnats.

    for those watching this later, the "burnt" ends on the leaves means it is over fertilized.

    Great indoor garden very nice. Please give me an advise. I am in northeastern Mexico and I am working with passion fruit and start fruit from seeds directly from the fruit. I have small plants (3 cm for now) and my goal is to grow them indoor. How do you deal with the need of strong sun (tropical) when it is not available naturally? and I would like to ask you if you got fruits out from your passion and start fruit. Cheers from Mexico.

    maybe you should top off that starfruit tree. I think it would help build a stronger trunk

    If you add sand or rock to the surface of your soil the baby black flies can't emerge and you disrupt the life cycle and they die. Try it out!

    Dear Friend
    Try the apple vinegar for the bug problem.  Just Apple cider and a drop of soap in a small dish.  Check the pot size.  Maybe the plant is root bound and stunting its growth

    That Vanilla plant should be in Orchid mix, not dirt.  A lot of the other plants that seem to be suffering are probably just over potted.  If the plant won't fully dry out in a couple weeks then you probably have too much dirt.  I try to err on the side of too small of a pot instead of too big.  Plants will dry out more often but they seem to like that better anyways.  That star fruit that is too tall would be best chopped in half to help build that main stalk.  Great set of plant, i'm jealous of your wide selection there.

    What about mixing some substrate? I normally use 3 parts regular medium, and 1 part peat moss. For tropical loose soil i would use 2 1/2 parts regular medium, 1 part peat moss, 1 part orchid bark or just loose bark and sometimes i would also add perlite to it. But that is up to you. Often if you would use only regular medium, it would become waterlogged easily, but if you mix, the soil will be more loose.

    How long have you been growing tropical fruit indoor? I am very much impressed with these features. I am pleased to know the helpful tips on how to grow them as productive as yours. I am looking forward for your response!

    hey those aren't fruit flies they are fungus gnats. Fruit flies like fruit. Fungus gnats love soggy soil cuz thats where they lay there eggs. So let your soil dry out then water or you can water from the bottom.

    Hey. If you had some fans set up for better airflow….. I believe some many of your leaves wouldn't be browning as much. Air flow is important especially indoors where there isn't Any wind.

    You have a nice collection. We sometimes love our plants to death by over watering. Praxis557 has really good advice. Before winter you might take your plants outside re-pot add vermiculite, treat soil with Neem oil spray foliage with Pyrethrin the grow room with a good spray to get rid of spider mites. Maybe more light. Just my thoughts.

    the fact that you are working with what you have and actually growing these plants, alone, is impressive. Subscribing

    remember to allow your plants to dry in between watering. you may have an over-watering issue.
