    Pistachio care

    Pistachio careDo not overwater your pistachio, it does not need that much water as far as you keep it watered once a week. Fertilization with a lot of nitrogen and potassium allows the creation of new buds. Trimming your pistachio will help it grow stronger but you must be really careful because it is not easy for the plant to heal. One typical practice for pistachio is the cutting of un-fructifying buds and weeds that would suffocate the plant.

    Pistachio parasites

    Even though pistachio is very strong and resistant, it has many enemies that could potentially hurt the plant. Fungi and rust are parts of these potential killers. Bugs and other parasites as well could hurt the plant risking to have it dead without being able to heal it. This happens most of all when they attack the fruits and the disease spreads through the plant reaching the trunk and the roots. Be careful and keep your pistachios away from their enemies.
