I have in my collection one Macadamia nut tree. It is about two feet tall and only a foot wide (it is one of the more upright growing varities). The small tree is alow growing, it has new growth, but little other growth is seen. The tree is not in my small greenhouse because it can handle low humidity. Several pests, include scale and mealybugs are a slight problem, but sprays can correct this. The tree can also be micronutrient deficient. A pecan fertilizer I find works good. Last fall the small tree flowered under 120-watt plant light. The flowers were white and small, and grew on a long stalk. Because of the low amount of natural light (we have many cloudy days here) the flowers fell off. This is a real easy plant to grow.
