« on: January 13, 2018, 04:58:34 AM »
Looking up info on Myrica rubra and I came across these in a a few articles, sohphie and sophie nam. Apparently india has 4 species of myrica. They seem highly sought after locally .Maybe Roy could find them, India seems full of suprises.

ive tried a couple of times growing from seed with no luck.

i know lots of people tried and failed
but, a couple have had success.

i think i remember some people buying dozens of these in a group buy ??
i would love to buy one, or even fresh seed if anyone knows where to get them.

i read an article that CHina grows them en-mass.
there are lots of varieties and colors.

 almost bought some here
i figured from CHina is better, and there are different colors.

but it seemed fishy.
40 cents for a package from China ?
