No problem man. The plants are too big to ship however they root from cuttings very easily. Let me know if you want cuttings.

That's great! I will post some pics of my plants in a few weeks... i'm sooo happy!  ;D

It looks really well! Congratulations! I ordered two of them... i'm thinking to plant them on one big pot and grow them outside below a corktree.... any sugestions? And regarding watering? Thank's!

For a diabestic, fruit does cause a spike  (my wife is diabetic so we have monitored) but as stated in some publications, the fiber in the fruit helps alleviate and balance out (not eliminate) the reaction from the sugar.  This is where eating the fruit is better than drinking fruit juice.

As a medical professional, yes this is correct. The spike is smoother if that makes sense versus drinking like fruit juice with out the fiber. There is even a diabetic that has a mostly fruitarian diet that interest me as he logs his readings and it is pretty impressive the difference in subtle changes of fruit sugar eating fruit whole and eating regular carbohydrates or sugar.
[/quote]Hi! Just a question, if the fruit juice is with vegetables the spike is on the same way? Thank's!

It has been 1 month only so can't help much.
I always use a lot of perlite for the plants I care most, I prefer water more often than risk roots issues.
Thank you very much! I will update the growing of alata bulbs...  ;D

I couldn't resist and ended up buying a bulbil from eBay. A variety sold as Dark Night St. Vincent. The seller has good reviews and the photos seem legit, so I doubt it's a scam (and we all know seed scams abound on eBay). It looked insanely purple on the inside, and even the stem looker thorough purple in the pics. It was overpriced, but I couldn't resist. I think it's supposed to arrive next week.
Hi! Please can you post the link of this seller please? Thank's!  ;D


Hi Luis, you can also try to contact this italian nursery that sell the plant:
http://www.vivaiocorazza.com/en/products/872-dioscorea-alata-.html

I got mine from there, and it's a nice healthy specimen. I can post the pictures if you want.
They have the english website so maybe they ship abroad.
Hello my friend! How is your alata doing? It's growing well? Thank's!  ;D

Thank you Ceasar! Please reserve to me one tiny bulb of the 3 species you have.   ;D

I have other species too, and still more on the way. I even found a local source of D. esculenta that I'm going to look into. I'll save you some from all the ones I grow.  :)
Thank's!  ;D

Thank you very much to both of you!  ;D

No problem!


Mine just arrived today, in fair condition. Green stem with purple-based petioles. The bit of tuber at the base looks brightly purple (a bit dulled by the soil, but still bright). I planted it into the tomato's tote, where there's a Florido D. alata and a D. rotundata growing already. I placed the stem in the shade while it acclimates to local conditions.

Hi everyone! There are any uses to Hedychium species? Leaves or tubers?
Thank's!  ;D
This lists the roots as usable but milder than commercial gingers.
Hedychium coronarium is National Flower of Cuba

Thank you very much! Do you know if it can be juiced? I used to put ginger slices on my fruit and vegetable juices...
