I wish NDM#4 and Sweet Tart are among the ones you are selling.
I have ndm#4. Just didn't clip the leaves I can probably do two packs.
Don't have sweet tart though.
I'll update the list

I will get 1 pack of NDM#4, sending you a pm for paypal address. Thanks.

You are right Simon, I was likely over fertilizing the trees during winter. I noticed flushes during January/February are lighter green than the past flashes. Some like Maha Chanok, cogshall, small 3 g ice cream flowered a lot. I made a mistake of cutting flower panicles in the muddle of January which killed the trees except maha that is in ground, but in a bad shape. Trees started drying up from the top and eventually died. I havenít seen that to trees I didnít cut flower panicles. I am hoping CC doesnít have malformation and itís current status is due to over fertilization.

Well, this is encouraging info! I've always heard it was 10 to 15 years to fruit for seedlings. And, at my age, that's not what I wanted to hear. I do have avocado seedlings up and running; but, what I want to know is if there are any "tricks" to speed up the fruiting process. Any suggestions?

greetings from Kissimmee
I'm finally downsized enough in life just to piddle in a few hobbies
that I have had to put off for a long time.
presently have a few Loquat, Lychee, Surinam Cherry and orange trees.
my interest isn't just raising them but to improve the product with grafts
and cuttings and see where it goes.
just an old dog learning new tricks

Annie's Annuals has them too, small plants in 4" pots, but the price is right and they grow fast.

Thanks! Bought a pair.

Monstera can take quite a bit of direct light. The key is to keep it moist and it likes high humidity. If you provide that it will take direct sunlight for at lest half a day. It will fruit if climbing support of staying on the ground, either way. In the deep shade it might not bloom that often.

I water my plants almost every day when there is no rain. Many are fruiting, especially those that get good light.
