Journal April 11, 2013

When inserting the moisture probe into the media of the Manzanillo olive, I could feel that it was meeting with a lot of resistance from the root ball, so it was apparent that it was time to move the plant to a larger pot.

That the plant was only received on November 13, 2012, and already needs to be repotted, speaks to how quickly it has adapted to being grown hydroponically.

From this point on, I do not intend to do any further pruning of the branches, in case the plant is going to flower and fruit this summer and fall.

It would not be unusual for this variety to fruit early, and I would dearly love to see it do so.
