Received Pom as a house warming gift. As our first child we were unaware of how to prune. I suggest watching YouTube videos because it’s not complicated but it can be a bit complex.

Bugs are attracted to this tree. Make sure to buy fertilizer in order to produce fruit. Rich organic soil. Prepare to buy large container if not able to plant into ground. Does get pretty tall and wide.

I would buy a bug netting to protect it. Needs plenty of water and sun. Make sure to add mulch. Helps keep roots protected. Especially here in Florida .

Good luck!!
