Planting & Care
Sunlight: Lychee thrives in full sun, but be aware that the plants need to be acclimated.
Soil: Lychee does not like alkaline soils, so amending garden soil with pine bark or pine needles may be necessary.
Water: These plants prefer ample and regular water throughout the year. Lychee does not have a natural winter resting period, so it will not benefit from a suspension of watering as do some other fruit trees.
Fertilizer: Feed with a weak liquid fertilizer throughout the growing season. Cut fertilizer back to once a month or so in the winter.
Temperature: Lychee needs to be exposed to cold temperatures (32 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit) for at least 100 hours in the winter
Pruning: Prune mature trees to help control their size and shape.
