Q.Feeding Fig Plant With Passion Fruit Pulp

Zone Summerville, SC | yamchito added on March 25, 2022 | Answered

Hello, I am a total newbie and I have a small fig plant, Celeste is the name of the variety, I was wondering what would be the effects of feeding it with a bit of passion fruit pulp once a week? Will it kill the plant? Any advice? Thanks!

Likely, uncomposted, it will lead to fungal and bacterial infections in the soil. You could get lucky and attract some beneficial microbes to the soil, or the opposite could happen and bad bacteria could take over.

Composting will be a way to ensure that pasteurization temperatures are achieved and any bad microbes are killed off.
