Luis how is the Thai jujube growing? some pictures?
Hello my friend! They are very small because they got wintered on a small pot, but i planted them on ground last week and they are well. I will post pics later... by the way when you will have the red siam rubi banana plant?
Thank's!  ;)
I must tell you Luis the Siam Rubi is a hard banana to grow. It needs a lot of light and a lot of heat like minimum 16C. Last year it was 130cm high and in winter it just died. One small pup came from rhizome in spring, if it will grow big and multiply I will send you.
Ok then... thank you my friend!  ;)

Perhaps a very important observation that has been bugging me for a while now and so I have to share it. Shown below are potted Sparkleberry and grafted Boukhobza blood orange. These plants had normal blooms last year but this year they bloomed like crazy!!! The only difference is that my dear wife sneaked in and planted some succulents on these pots! I know from more than 40 years ago that most succulents have allelopathic effects on other plants, it was one of my Science Fair projects during my first year high school. Perhaps this year’s way above normal blooms that I have observed may have been triggered by the chemicals excreted by the clandestinely added succulents. Since I don’t have the luxury of time and space to verify my observations, perhaps you can replicate and validate my suspicions. It would make for a very interesting graduate research studies or undergraduate thesis. Perhaps you can just acknowledge my observations if you have observed it in your formal research studies.











Hello my friend! Fabulous posts as usual!
Do you think i should plant suculents below my citrus trees? Thank's!

Impressive! Thank you very much!  ;D

In a Dr Manners post on the old Citrus Growers Forum, Dr Manners wrote.... "The best grapefruit I ever ate was a seedless Marsh picked from a 25-year old tree.   I remembered what he said and planted a Marsh grapefruit in the ground, it is now 6 year old. The fruit is still quite sour, but then it is a young tree.   A person can purchase red grapefruit from most any store, but the whites are getting hard to find.  Therefore, glad I purchase a Marsh when I did
Thank you very much!  ;D

Also, grapefruit need a lot of summer heat to taste right.
I have very hot and dry summers here... i will have a rio red and i'm thinking on a oroblanco, but if a marsh or a duncan is better i choose one of those...

Pancrazio, I agree with you.  I grow only one variety of grapefruit, and that one is Marsh.   Marsh when left on the tree until February or March is simple delicious. - Millet
Hello Millet! On your opinion what's the best yellow variety, the Duncan, Marsh or Oroblanco? Thank's!   ;D
