I have a small pomegranate plant in pot. It has started flowering. Should some fertilizer be applied at this stage for the fruits to grow bigger? If so, can some one suggest what kind of fertilizer to apply. I prefer giving some organic fertilizer.  Thanks.

Hi Sri,

I have no knowledge about growing pomegranate, but a question for you.

How big is your pot and plant? Would be interested in knowing whether it fruits well in pots..

Is it any specific variety?

Hi, 

Thanks.

Its  a normal 20l water can. I have cut the neck and using it as a pot.. So it should be almost 1 and 1/2 feet in height. And about the variety, I have no idea. It had sprouted from throw away seed.

Hello sri.
I too have a pomegranate plant. It is just 4 inch long. I too grow it from seed a few weeks ago. And i do not expect for fruits from it, as it is grown through seeds. . It is my luck that i get some good fruits. I read some where that a fruit seed is not good for growing tree. As it do not sure us of good fruit. It is just your luck. But in some cases a fruit seed can give us better fruit than the mother's.
I would suggest you to wait for first year fruit, and then apply something next year according to result.
If you really want good fruits, you should graft it to some good tree. I grown mine just for greenry and no cost at all. May be some day i too graft it. Good luck.
