You should be using a light [low clay], well draining soil mixture with an abundance of peat, and perlite or vermiculite. Adding addition perlite or vermiculite to any soil you purchase is advisable. You can also add wood chips, redwood shavings or even hamster bedding and semi-sterile compost [Not from your back yard compost heap] in moderation . Using dirt from your yard is a bad idea.
Water regularly to keep the soil moist, not saturated, just moist. A layer of decorative sterile mulch such as bark or any other organic mulch is advisable to retain soil moisture. Allow the potting soil to slightly dry between watering, not "DRY-OUT" just slightly dry.
I prefer to water modestly 2 - 3 times weekly , test the soil by hand - stick your finger in about a half inch to be certain it is semi dry before adding more water. Over watering is just as deadly as under watering.
Pomegranate trees are susceptible to spider mites, mealy bugs, whiteflies and Leaf-Footed Plant Bug. The Leaf-Footed Plant Bug is rarely a problem indoors , and only then in regions where the tree is a native. Check the trunk for mealy bugs and whiteflies. Wipe the foliage periodically with a damp paper towel or sponge. Dust will attracts pests, they hide themselves and their egg clusters in the dust while parasitizing the plant . To treat spider mites, spray your plant with insecticidal soap or horticulturist oil, which will smother the insects. clean the foliage, top and bottom sides of the leaves as well. Neem Oil is effective against Scales and Mealy bugs. Rubbing alcohol applied with a Q-tip will also work in mild infestations.
