Degus guava can grow anywhere, from the lowlands to an altitude of 1000 m above sea level, but ideally to be able to produce optimally should be planted in low land with a height of not more than 400 m above sea level. With low rainfall of 500-1000 mm / year with a number of rainy days of 50-70 days / year or dry areas with a dry season of more than 4 months.

This juice can be cultivated either in pots or called Tabulapot, planted in the yard or tabulakar and also on a large scale which requires a special area for business success, for this reason it is necessary to consider the nature and conditions of growth and infrastructure available in the planting location.

1. Propagation of seeds / seeds

Propagation of degus water guava can be done by grafting, connecting, grafting and seeding. The choice of propagation method is adjusted to the requirements, the time conditions for the costs and the available technical personnel. Seed propagation is quite successful and the most appropriate is by grafting and grafting from the parent tree. For seed multiplication, it is produced by seed producers who have been registered at the Seed Certification and Monitoring Center (BPSB) with labeled seed production.

2. Planting

The spacing of the planting of degus water guava planted in the garden widely, the spacing between trees is at least 5 x 5 m. With this spacing, then in 1 hectare it takes 400 seeds plus 10% as a substitute for seeds that may not grow or die.

- Preparation of planting holes

Planting holes should be prepared as much as possible 2 weeks before planting. The hole is made by means of the soil excavated with a size of 60x60x60 cm. The upper part of the soil (30 cm thick) is separated from the bottom soil, within 2 weeks, the hole is left to the sun.

- Planting

When planting seeds. holes filled with sand 2/6 parts, 3/6 parts filled with fertile soil / top soil excavation after clearing of grass seeds, then the seeds are planted after the plastic packaging has been removed, the top layer is given manure as a basic fertilizer 1/6 parts (+ 10 kg).

3. Maintenance

- Sprinkling

If there is no rain for 2 weeks after planting it needs to be watered twice a day, the rest is only once a day. After the plants grow, watering is no longer needed because the roots of the plants have penetrated the soil far enough to get enough water even though the surface of the soil seems dry, on the contrary to avoid excess water, during the rainy season, plants need to be drained around it.

- Weeding

Weeding is done with the aim of removing bully plants (weeds), wild grasses and vines that often grow around plants can interfere with growth, especially when the plants are still small, aged 1- 3 years. When cleaning weeds, it can also be done weeding around the plants at least twice a year weeding and roasting.

- Advanced Fertilizer Giving

Fertilization is the right choice so that the degus water guava plant can produce better. Provision of artificial fertilizer is carried out twice a year and manure is given once a year, before the dry season of the dry season. Fertilizer dosage is adjusted to the age of the plant.

- Stitching

Seedlings that do not grow or die must be immediately refined, namely replacing dead seeds with new ones. Late embroidering will make plants grow not as big.

- Trimming

Maintenance pruning is done on branches, branches and twigs that are dry, dead, wounded, old, broken, and other parts of plants that are not perfectly growth. Pruning is also done on branches that overlap, growing irregularly so that the main branch is defeated. Branches that are sick or old but still productive enough are not cut out, but are left about 5 cm from the base. Crops that are too dense are also trimmed to avoid fungus coming.
