  • 1. Immediate Planting:
    Upon receiving your sprouted Ice Cream Bean Tree seeds, it's crucial to plant them into soil immediately. This ensures the seeds' viability and promotes healthy root development.

    2. Watering:
    Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged during the initial stages of growth. Once established, the Ice Cream Bean Tree is relatively drought-tolerant, but regular watering is still recommended, especially during dry periods.

    3. Protection: 
    While the Ice Cream Bean Tree can withstand frosts once established, young trees should be protected from harsh conditions. Consider providing a sheltered environment or covering the tree during colder months.

    4. Support: 
    As the tree grows, it may benefit from additional support such as stakes or trellises, particularly in windy areas.

    5. Pruning: 
    Prune your Ice Cream Bean Tree as needed to maintain its shape and promote airflow within the canopy. This can help prevent disease and encourage optimal fruit production.

    6. Fertilization: 
    While the Ice Cream Bean Tree is a nitrogen fixer, occasional fertilization with a balanced fertilizer can support healthy growth and fruit production, especially in nutrient-poor soils.
