Potted Pomegranate flowers in the flowering and bearing period to strictly control watering, avoid by all means to see the basin soil surface dry immediately watering. We might as well wait for its branches and leaves slightly wilting, then watering is not late, and pouring must be watered through. If the basin soil is too dry, easy to cause falling buds, dried fruit and fruit drop; The basin soil is too wet, although sometimes does not affect the growth of the plant, but also easy to appear the phenomenon of falling bud and cracking fruit. This is also one of the factors that affects its flowering and bearing.

Pruning care 

Mixed buds grow at or near the top of strong, short shoots. These should be kept during dormant pruning, without cutting or thinning. Long branches in the pruning can retain the base of 2 ~ 3 heavy short bud, germination conditions after the year can grow fruit mother branches.

Separate plant, can be in early spring in April bud initiation, dig robust root tiller seedling points. Slathe, spring, autumn can be carried out, do not have to cut injury, before bud initiation with root part tillering pressure into the soil, after the summer rooting cut from the mother plant, autumn is into seedlings.

Disease and insect control: Mainly leaf blight and gray mold, and can be used 70 {BF} methyl tobutin wettable powder 1000 times liquid spray. Insect pests include moths, scale insects and aphids. Use 55 {bf} to kill borer pine emulsion 1000 times liquid spray.
