    When should these be moved to a bigger pot and what size do you recommend?

      hi serena, we’ve grown them for years in 1-gal pots but the larger the pot, the larger the tree will get. r

      This will sound crazy but my neighbor kicked over all my plants. One wattle kept it’s leaves and the other lost all of them. I do live in new england. I wasn’t sure if maybe it got too cold before I took them in. It was before any known frost. Though it can be unpredictable at night. The one that kept it’s leaves did have them change color and the other I wonder if he survived the assault. 🙁 They were doing beautiful all summer, I moved to 3 gallon grow bags.

      When I bring them inside do I keep the same water cycle or once they won’t get as much sunlight do I water less?

      Hi there, any time a tree loses its leaves you can determine if it is temporary or permanent by looking for new buds. If new buds are formed, don’t worry and don’t throw out the tree. I have a couple of these in gallon pots in my greenhouse and find that they do well with little water in the winter and moderate water in the summer months. r
