Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: cloning gels
« Last post by PltdWorld on April 19, 2018, 10:15:43 PM »
I haven't tried clonex before. I've been using dip n grow. I figured it has 2 hormones so it's better. I don't really know.

I have used clonex on vegetative growth (i.e. passion fruit), and have had good success with Dip N Grow on ornamental woody plants... not sure why I never tried it on fruit trees, but I bet it would work.  That stuff is NASTY though.  The guy at the hydroponics store said it would "root a toothpick", lol

The cannibis guys have been using clonex for decades - you'd think if it was bad to use on "edibles" (warning label or not) that info would have gotten out by now.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Its Now Time To Foliar Feed For Best Crop Of Fruit

Hello, Millet. I sprayed my trees with low biuret urea at the concentration you recommended. After spraying, I noticed that two trees, an Australian red lime and one of two trifoliate citrus trees (same but unkown variety/species) showed damaged leaves - brown tips. This is only two trees out of about 55 trees and about 30 varieties. My point is that urea spray is not always innocuous.

A foliar spray of low-biuret urea after the tree's early drop phase will produce larger fruit and higher quality fruit.

I'm growing nearly 400 varieties of all sorts of stuff.   You can't go wrong in 8b/9a.

Holy cow, do you have a list somewhere? Do you sell?

With a citrus tree (or any fruit tree) you get what you sew.

I agree, however in the case of the typical home grower one may reach the point of diminishing returns rather easily.

Hi all,

I'd like some cuttings of black pepper if anyone has any to spare. I have a number of excess cacti and succulent cuttings I could trade: Pereskiopsis, Stapelia gigantea, Pereskia bleo, Hatiora salicornioides, and Rhipsalidopsis (Easter cactus).

Thanks!

So I though I had root rot issue with my DF. Well I found out that it isnít root rot but  root knot nematode.
Now how can I get rid of them. All my DF are planted in a container .

Thanks

Clonex works like a charm for me for many years. IBA content is 3.3 g/L. My only concern in the colour, it's very toxic and a cancerigen so wear gloves. Sure it is in a low quantity but very potent, that's way they warn you on the box that it's not for edible plants.
What, really?
