Citrus General Discussion / Re: Red (Blood) Clementine
« on: April 08, 2017, 11:55:05 PM »
Millet, I had the same happen with the seeds I got from Laaz also.  Also, when I separated some of the small plants I also found several plants developing within the seed case still attached. 

Millet, those Blood Clementine Seedlings are interesting.  Many more of them are still sending up additional multiple seedlings.  Several of mine now have as many as 5 coming from the one seed even though the first seeding came up several days ago.   I went back today to see if I could now separate the ones that seemed to be fused together.  Today they had developed their own roots and I cut through the small spot where they were fused together.   They were easily divided after that and I think they will be fine on their own.  I am surprised I never have seen any fused together like that before and found several like that in this batch.  I wish I had taken a picture, but I forgot.  There are still more mutiples coming up, so maybe some of those will be fused too and I can get a picture.  It is also interesting to me that this one with the large leaf is one of them that was fused.  It has such a different shaped leaf than all the others, even it's twin.

Very nice Laaz.  Thanks for posting.

Millet, I looked to see if I could divide my mutiples, but they are still within the seed and are actually still fused together and don't have enough roots to Iive on their own.  I had expected each to have its own root, but not yet.  I don't remember seeing the two seedlings fused together like that before, but maybe that is because I waited longer to try to separate them.

That will be interesting to see Laaz.  Of the 5 seedlings that have sprouted only one so far is slightly green; the others are just creamy white, even the first true leaves are creamy white .  I have read about plants with green leaves producing variegated fruit.  It must be a surprise to see the variegated fruit on a green tree or branch.

I bought seeds from Laaz too.  I did not remove the outer seed covering before planting them in soil.  It was interesting to me that the variegated sour oranges germinated first, then the blood clementines, and now the blood limes are coming up.  None of the fast trifoliate have germinated yet. I planted some Moros about the same time and they are germinating now too.     Only 2 seeds so far came up as doubles.  The variegated sour orange so far have no clorophyll at all.  I hope they survive.  It is fun to watch them.

Thanks Millet.  That was very interesting.

Wow!  Large trees loaded with fruit.  It makes me feel like I should try a test tree in a protected spot in my yard.

This trip report is so interesting.  It is amazing that you located all those rare trees so far from where you live.  Thank you for sharing the information and pictures.  I can't imagine undertaking such an adventure.  I am so glad you were able to find all the species you set out to find.  I hope your efforts can help save the endangered trees.

Hmm, I read that statement as the MG mix can be comprised of one or more of the following, so maybe that is why the bags are different, the mix is not always the same.  So far I have not bought any that had mostly bark.  Whatever is in the bags I have bought is very fine grained, heavy, dense, very black so that it stains my fingers when I dig in it.  It compresses a lot and pulls way from the sides of the pot even though it looks damp yet.  I need to add a lot of perlite or sponge rock to make it more airy and add my own bark and comost to it, otherwise it is not usable in a container.   I wish I could buy the barky airy bag.  It would be nice to know which I was buying.  Thanks for asking MG the question Millet.  I wonder if it means the mixes in the specified states are more consistent?  Maybe more precise labeling is required in those states?

Millet I have the yellow and green garden soil bag but the soil inside does not seem to be the same as you have.  It is very fine grained and dense and contains no bark.  It is very heavy and black.  More like a black clay.  It doesn't drain well at all.  It must be from a different source.

That's good to hear Millet.  Others report good results too.  I wonder if it is different in different parts of the country.  I bought a few bags to try, but it was so dense and compacted quickly.  I finally just added what I had left to fill in low spots in my garden and lawn.  I got the garden soil and not the potting soil.  Has anyone in the NJ area tried it with good results?  I even tried adding perlite and it still compacted quickly.
