Hi Oscar, I already sent you two emails without response and I'm still waiting the seeds of Annona spraguei I ordered the 30th of November 2017. Since I didn't receive anything at all, I was asking you if and when you shipped the packet.

Thanks,

Giampaolo

What a mess the Brasilin post!!!

By the way, I neither receive any answer from Dreamfrutas about my seeds!

Is he still alive here?

Thanks

Giampaolo


Hi

Good question about the date of the post.

Brazilian post offices have been terribly slow and confused since November, they are implementing new systems and working with a small staff of staff.

Even internal orders that took two useful, to be delivered are taking up to five days.

So the ideal is to follow the tracking and see how they are following the packages.







anybody else receive seeds yet?
When did you order?

Hi dreamfrutas I sent you a PM, did you already shipped my seeds? Thanks

Hi Beni, did you ever had the chance to find any Alphonsea specie in you fruit trade?

Borneo should be full of this kind of Annonaceae!


All the best,

This member is a'Rip Van Winkle'. Wakes up after a few months, makes a post, never responds to posts or to mails, and goes back to sleep!

I agree, I asked for seeds early and she answered to me very late. And guess what: she already sold everything!

I'd like the Administrator looking into these kind of members!


Cheers!

Hi Posci35, when will be the right period for Polyalthia debilis seeds?

Many thanks,

Giampaolo

Hi Dada, we got confirmation the N*2 is NOT an Annonacea. So for sure not a duguetia!

Heimo Rainer confirmed as well.

All the best,

Giampaolo

Thanks for the interesting post. Any more info on the Duguetia sp. (image 2)? All the Dugentias I saw online were shaped like the first picture, so that one is intriguing.
Yes it is a mystery. The place where I found it has a botanist and he assured me that it is a Duguetia, even so from the fruit and leaves it looks more like a Guatteria. When I get a positive ID of it will post it!

Many thanks Victoria, I bet on that!!!

it's very important for me to get these seeds!! I wait for you to confirm the seeds has been sent. Hope not too long away this time!

All the best,

Giampaolo

Hi Victoria, I’m still waiting the manirito seeds I paid for more than one year ago!!!

Is there any chance for you to resend them to me?

Cheers,

Giampaolo

hello Giampaolo.
I have a good news for you. I'm near to get Manirito seeds again and OF COURSE can send you seeds, but not directly from me.. Postal office here is not working..
 I am coordinating to send with a friend of this forum that will come to venezuela soon. I already talked to him and he said yes.

I am very sorry that my package never arrived.

Raul, remember you promise: do not forget to investigate about Annona globiflora. It must be there somewhere!!! Almost the same habitat of A.purpurea...

Hi Micah!

For the plants with Cerrado origins (A.cornifolia, A.sp.rollinia, A.sp.squamosa) as well as for those with African origins like A.stenophylla or the one close to Paraguay (A.nutans), you should bear in mind what I found in Wikipedia, that I agree with:

"The Cerrado's climate is typical of the rather moister savanna regions of the world, with a semi-humid tropical climate. The Cerrado is limited to two dominant seasons throughout the year, wet and dry. Annual temperatures for the Cerrado average between 22 and 27 °C and average precipitation between 800–2000 mm for over 90% of the area.[5] This ecoregion has a very strong dry season during the southern winter (approx. April– September)"

So, my suggestion is: put these plants in full sun, and at least for 6 months, if the plants are planted in the ground, I would water much less than the rest of the plants you have, profiting from your dry season. So, be careful to not rot the roots with too much water when the plants are static! Especially for A.stenophylla which has at the base a tuberous root which cumulate water for the dry season every year!
By the way, if A.stenophylla start drying in the aereal part at the end of season, don't be afraid!!! It's normal, every year do like this, and restart growing from the tuber the following season, usually with new flowers!!

The rest of the plants, things are much easier, since A.bahiensis, A.parviflora, A.neolaurifolia and A.ubatubensis are much flexible. It worth to mention that I found in my bonsai collection that A.bahiensis and A.neolaurifolia are much more cold resistant but my advice is: do not rely too much on that, since I also found they react muuuuuch better if they are exposed to half shade/sun during the hot season days and protected by the cold wind during the night also in cold season. You recognize that immediately when they are in the flowering dress: they feel stonger if they were protected!

Another interesting tip is the manure: for all Cerrado type, they like organic manure, but do NOT exaggerate with it! The Cerrado ground like the African savannah are very poor soil!!! Too much manure can burn the roots easily. Do it carefully only few days before the seasonal new growths.
For the other annonaceae, they can tolerate much more flexibility in term of quantity and percentage of components, but do not exceed to acid PH.

Last but not least: be careful about the wind: these annonaceae are quite resistant, but I recognized that they prefer protected places from the cold winds. I mean, they don't like still places without wind, but not too windy! This is because still humidity can lead to mold in the leaves and that's really not good! If you have a place in the third line of the beachfront that's could be the best.

Ok, that's enough for the moment, for any other question you may have, just ask!

hugs from Italy,

Giampaolo



Aloha brethren,
In the nursery should they be in full sun or partial?
As far as watering goes? Is it ok to water every day like our other plants? Or should I set aside an annona cerrado zone that gets less watering?  They look like they are quite hardy.
You get royal carpet treatment when you visit Hawaii from me.
Mahalo!

Great Micah,

many thanks for your kind words!!

one day I will visit you in Hawaii... still in my dreams,,,

By the way, in the meanwhile do not hesitate to ask me whatever you may need for best results with these treasures. Next year I will have the rarest of the rarest annonaceae... you will be up in my list!


hugs from Italy,

Giampaolo


Aloha Giampaolo!
Mahalo Nui Loa for sharing these amazing Annonas.
The plants look great!  No jet lag
Please keep me on the list for next available 🌱.
I repotted them and have them in full sun.  So far they look happy .
Blessings

Thank you so much Sune,

I have in pipeline many ultra-rare annonaceae for conosseurs for sale for the next year. I will give priority to all friends who were so enthusiastic like you.

Hope you will keep safe and fruitful your Annonas for the next years, and they will reward you!!!

For any cultivation tip you may need just ask!

All the best,

Giampaolo


This weekend I received the last annona plants from this season - and the first in my annona adventure that will, hopefully, last many years to come. The plants look healthy and were packed well. There was no damage from their journey from Italy to Denmark. Overall, very satisfied and excited by this chance to getting started in the Annonaceae sphere. Thank you Giampaolo, I will look forward to seeing what jewels you have in stock next year  ;)!

Many thanks Raul, I know for sure the fruit worth the troubles!
It's not that big but the texture and flavour is ok.


Many thanks and keep me update on that if you can,

All the best,

Giampaolo
