IMPORTANT READ THIS:
Seedling plants need protection from cold weather, wind, sun, dry conditions. On arrival of your seedling place them in a location with temperatures about (70-80 F) in shade but NOT direct sun for two weeks so they can adjust from shipping. NO direct sunlight at all! Water them if the soil is dry and keep an eye on the soil. Moist soil not soaked please.

NO partial shade - FULL SHADE ONLY! Once again: Sun will burn the seedlings! Allow the plants a week or two to adjust before transplanting to another container or fertilizing. Before moving to full sun, gradually increase their exposure to sunlight. Temperatures falling below 50 F can result in plant damage or death.
About fertilizer:
Don’t burn your plant with a strong dose of fertilizer. Read directions and use at half strength twice a month when soil is moist. Place fertilizer gently below the soil around the edges of the container and cover with soil.
Use an organic fertilizer like Espoma Plant tone (or similar)
5-3-3 for Cacao, Jaboticaba, Grumichama and Miracle Fruit.
Espoma Citrus Tone 5-2-6 For Abiu, Soursop, Jackfruit, Dragon Fruit Cashew, Peanut Butter Tree, Goji, Papaya, Butterfly Pea, Anamu and other non acid lovers.
NOTE: These starter plants can be planted in the ground after they have rooted well into a 10 inch diameter plastic pot. Growing outside the plants zone? Grow in pots and bring in from the cold.
Enjoy your plants and have fun growing them. Feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions.

About Pepesplants

Sales 118
On Etsy since 2019

Edible gardening is for everyone, get your top quality starter plants here.

Thirty Five years ago I moved to South Florida with my wife Aly, she and I never had a garden. By the late 1990's my family and I managed 12.5 acres of land with a wide assortment of tropical fruit trees and exotic palms. In 2005, Pepe's Fruit Trees was born and I was on my way to building a great business that I love so much.

Over the years I have met many, amazing and talented people that gladly shared agricultural skills with me. To them I am grateful. It is because of their example that I am always pleased to share my knowledge with anyone who has an interest in edible gardening.

Visit me on YouTube to see regularly uploaded educational videos. My channel demonstrates various growing methods and features several step by step propagation and planting methods.

We always ship USPS 2 day Priority mail so your plants arrive quickly with minimal shock if any.
Happy gardening "-)

Frequently asked questions
Is combined shipping available?

Yes, I can often ship up to three items at no extra cost depending on the plants overall size. Two day priority shipping with tracking.

Do you offer care and growing instructions?

Yes, basic information is in the listing description and at https://www.pepesplants.com

Do you accept returns or exchanges

No sorry. All the plants are offered to you in great shape. I do my best to carefully package the plants but the postal service can sometimes damage a box or handle the box in a rough manner.

Sometimes packages are left out in the sun on a front porch or left for days without water. In some cases these tropical plants are left in the cold and they do not like that one bit!

Please open the box as soon as you receive it.

WE GUARANTEE LIVE DELIVERY. Message me along with a photo of the plant immediately upon arrival if the plants are in poor condition. Water your plants and place them in shade for one - two weeks. Once you have the plant you are in charge of it's health and prosperity!

Can I call you with questions about the plant?

Yes, but often times it is better to text me first and I can follow up soon as possible. Usually the same day.
954-740-4070

Can I place the plant in full sun?

No! Please understand these plants are young and need to be in shade for one - two weeks. Until they have grown to a height of at least two feet do not put them in full sun! NOTE: Always make sure you acclimate the plant to full sun. This is done slowly over time. Some plants are not happy in full sun ever. When in doubt call or email me.

Can I re-pot the plant?

Yes, after about 30-45 days depending on the amount of roots in the container. Carefully squeeze your 3.5 x 5 inch container and place the plant at the same soil level in a 10 inch plastic container. Be sure the plant goes out to filtered light not full sun at this stage.

How much water?

Always keep the soil moist but allow the surface to dry slightly before watering. Use potting soil and remember to keep an eye on the plants. A tiny plant in a tiny pot can dry out quickly and sometimes daily watering is required. Your weather, temperature, sun exposure etc will all be factors to consider before watering.

How and what do I fertilize with?

I recommend an organic fertilizer like a 10-10-10 for young seedling plants. Water your plants with a liquid fertilizer at half strength every two weeks or at a minimum on a monthly basis. Fertilize in spring and summer. Also use a mineral supplement a few times per year. Read and follow all label directions.
