I did my research before I posted and I found it fascinating. I also planted Nam Doc Mai seeds and saw as the first, biggest, most purple plant with the biggest leaves is very different from the others.
I love seeds and I respect Nature. In my knowledge and experience a grafted tree will never be as strong and big as a tree grew from seed. Trees from seed live longer too.

LOL, I do not think I was being Rude, just chatting. And I am learning from those that made comments...Well most comments, yours was kind mean and useless. lol

Really ? You asked for suggestions for your doomed jackfruits and the one viable response to actually help you and you respond like a kook? No one knows that your not resourceful enough to find what you need for your project . Nor should anyone that is taking time to offer you advice to help you, be responded to like that , no doy fa real though.
Your jackfruits are already dead though so you can take your $2 pot back and save your money at least, or wear it like a hat.

Why not buy a nice very big pot for him?

Duhhhhh..... Money

« Last post by achetadomestica on Today at 03:58:18 PM »


red jabos    1.00ea  some are starting to germinate
pitangatuba 1.00ea  limited

I started 3 types of jabos from seed last year including sabara, branco vinho, and red.
The red is 3x bigger and it was the smallest one out of 10!

I am interested in trades if you have something?
I also have a ton of almost ripe peanut butter fruit that should be ready in a week

“Propagation by seed is only recommended for poly-embryonic mango varieties such as Kensington Pride. Poly-embryonic seeds produce a number of shoots, one of which originates from fertilisation. The fertilised seedling is often weak and stunted and should be discarded. The other seedlings are clones of the mother tree.”

polyembryony: “it is considered as a desirable character in citrus, mango, jamun, rose apple, almond, etc. to obtain true to type planting material.”
“nucellar seedling possesses the genetic make-up of mother plant and are true to type” (nucellar=not sexual)

I rooted mine without any extra help. Just put tiny cuttings in a water near the window, changing the water regularly.
Do you remember how long it took to root?

“A polyembryonic seed is one which contains multiple embryos. Poly-embryonic seeds produce a number of shoots, one of which originates from fertilisation. The fertilised seedling is often weak and stunted and should be discarded. The other seedlings are clones of the mother tree. Yes, clones – just like a cutting, only from seed.

This means that if you grow a polyembryonic mango (such as Kensington Pride or Bowen, which is pretty much the only variety that we can buy in supermarkets in WA) or citrus (Valencia orange, Lisbon lemon, West Indian lime, Thompson or Marsh grapefruit, Murcott, Kara mandarin, amongst others) variety from seed, it will be true to type.“

I left my response in the citrus thread. In short, 3 ft will be overdoing it 2 ft might be overdoing it, but 18 inches has worked.

3 2 ft might be too much.
1 ft is okay. In hot desert areas, 18 inches is good, from what I've heard. Most people do 8 inches or less. I do 3 inches because I'm lazy.

When I go into the mountains for mushrooms, the thicker areas have over a foot of fallen leaves.

EDIT: Oh, you said citrus. I've heard in the past, people discourage mulching citrus.
