Ohh -- OP is referring to the vine on the tree in the 3rd pic.  I don't think I've ever seen monstera climb. It's a ground dweller.

#2 looks like a type of cycad, seeds are usually poisonous to dogs (probably humans also).
#3 looks like a type of pothos.
#1 kind of looks like B. Pepper, white flowers towards bottom of the picture do not look like B. pepper flowers (B.Pepper here finished flowering late Nov).

Yah, stay away from the braz pepper.

Monstera is quite good. It's more like a vine with bigger, prettier looking leaves. Grows very well in shade. A good ground cover if you have space (they can eventually cover a lot of ground). That plant in the picture is a common south florida plant; just not sure what it's called (def not monstera though).

Not sure what the bush in the last pic is. I thought it was carissa at first, but on closer inspection, maybe it's some sort of holly? Definitely not muntingia (what we refer to as strawberry tree down here in broward).

I just looked up Brazilian pepper on Wikipedia and it looks like the fresh fruit are poisonous unless they're dried. Can someone confirm? What's the proper way to dry them?

The third photo was supposed to a closeup of the not-monstera fruit. Speaking of which, is that fruit edible? It does look kind of like monstera. Though maybe it never ripens to become non-poisonous?
 
I need to retake the last photo, probably.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lucuma grafted on Canistel
« Last post by snowjunky on January 14, 2019, 03:57:35 PM »
Hi All,
Is Lucuma compatible with Canistel rootstock long term?
Does anyone know of a healthy Lucuma on Canistel rootstock?
Canistel can grow in a large container here in Phoenix, AZ, but Lucumas die for some reason.
Lucumas die even before it gets hot.  It might be the very hard water or some public water chemical or something.
Using a tougher rootstock makes more sense than trying to use filtered water.

Thank you for any info,
Steve

It's sending you a message: "Feed me!" I might switch over to a slow release mix like Har's 0-3-16 plus some sulfur to lower ph and perhaps drenches with iron chelate. Probably going to be deficient in copper and manganese as well.

The vp could be in a better area of soil. Or it could be better at nutrient absoprtion due to cultivar. Or, maybe the chlorotic tree was pruned more? (the leaves hold nutrients). Or maybe the chlorotic tree is older (and has depleted the little bit of soil nutrition was there to begin with). Etc.

Can someone help me with this:
Front of leaves

Back of leaves



A Valencia Pride planted 15ft away looks fine.


Both receive 8-3-9 w/ micros during growing season (although, not as much as they should)
