It is a plant that manages to survive and grow on all types of soils (moist, heavy, asphyxiated, clayey, calcareous ...), but its ideal habitat is fresh, well-drained and deep soil. Indications for irrigation of the myrobalan they only concern the specimens recently planted, because they have not yet perfectly developed the roots that will allow them to independently meet their own water needs. These specimens of young people mirabolani need abundant doses of water until the fruits ripen. In case of high temperatures, 100 liters are needed every 15 days.
