This year (year three or four for most of my potted trees) my trees seem to be producing many more cymes than ever before. Is there any specific nutrient that might make that happen? This year I went a little different route on fertilizing. I placed about 1-2 inches of new soil/compost in each pot. I used E.B. Stoneâ€™s Paydirt that contains fir bark, redwood compost, chicken manure, mushroom compost, earthworm castings, pumice stone, bat guano, feather meal and kelp meal. As well as mycorrhizae and humic acids. I sprinkled a dusting of Azomite on top of the dirt and a couple weeks later I added a small amount of granulated potassium magnesium sulfate 18/11/22 as well. I donâ€™t recall ever seeing so many clusters of cymes before, but Iâ€™ve only been growing maples for 4-5 yrs now, so maybe these are normal and previous years were the abnormal ones. Iâ€™ve attached a few pictures to show the cyme production. The first is Kihachijo, Purple Ghost, Sango Kaku, and Dancing Peacock.
