Parajubaeas In The Mist

Recommended Posts

Tyrone

Well I got up this morning to thick fog and mist and about 16C with 100% RH. The fog didn’t lift until around 9.30am but it just reminded me of a cloud forest environment especially when I looked at my Parajubaeas which come from the Andes. So I took some pics.

The trees were also dropping a lot of condensed water like rain in the rainforest area whenever the slightest breeze went through. I’m really happy that the trees were acting like rainforest trees. Really beautiful morning. Now in the afternoon it’s about 26C and very humid.

From spring to autumn I water them every 3 or 4 days with a pot sprayer emitter at the base. Our long term weather pattern just falls into Mediterranean with over 900mm of rain annually (over 3 ft) but this year we’ve technically been more towards Oceanic with no real summer dry spell this year. We’ve been getting more than 40mm a month of rain during summer plus mega humidity. The soil here is a mix of peat and clay. Almost no sand at all, but only 500m away the soil is basically sand.
