Water: Only water the plants when the soil is completely dry. If the soil has any moisture, do not water them. When you water your plants be sure they are being watered in the evening or late afternoon. Plants best absorb water and nutrients from the soil during their rest period (which is in the evening). Over-watering is the easiest way to kill plants. It is also important to address under-watering. An under-watered plant will show signs of stress with drooping or withered leaves. A good watering will perk the leaves right up.

Sunlight: When you first receive them keep them in soft sun or indirect light only and slowly introduce them to direct sunlight. Not being careful with proper sun introduction can cause the plants to sunburn. Burn will either kill the leaves or cause them to look unsightly.

Temperature: These are very tough plants but they are not indestructible. A good rule is to not allow your plants to be in temperatures below 20 degrees without protection. These plants truly thrive between 50 degrees and 85 degrees. It is ok if the temperature gets above this mark, you will just need to take extra precaution to ensure your plants do not burn. You will want to keep your plants out of direct afternoon sun if the temperatures are rising above 100 degrees. If the temperature is dropping below 20 you will want to keep them indoors/greenhouse to ensure they do not freeze.


Be sure to immediately bring your package inside and completely unwrap your plants. Often it is easiest to open the box from the bottom and carefully remove the wrapped roots. Place your plants in a location that they will be able to receive soft sun or indirect light. Water your plants if the soil is completely dry. Refer to the Care guide above. If you are looking to transplant these plants, you will want to squeeze the sides of the pot to loosen the soil. Put your hand over the whole top of the open side pot while turning the pot upside down. This will start to remove the plant from the container. Use your other hand to keep the soil and roots intact. Create a small hole in your new soil area to place your plant into and compress the soil slightly.

    I'm on a fixed income and the amazing price actually put landscaping with trees available to me. They were well packaged, but transit did take a toll on the root ball. They are lovely and extremely healthy trees. I have had the two mesquite trees for three weeks and they're doing very well. I'm very happy with them.
