At last a few have germinated, any one out there growing this beauty?

I have long searched for it after reading and seeing few pictures of the fruit..

I have no idea how cold hardy they are, but most likely one more suited for the tropics / greenhouse set up.

Thanks for stopping by..

My first experiment growing fruit seedling using a home made Hydroponic Deep Water Culture system (DWC).

I am using mason jars hand painted to match fruit color, well sort of! I was out of labels and of course when you are out labels you paint with colors that matches the fruit 🤔🤔🤣 I have one painted to match that of Achacha and a blue jar as well, not sure what to do with the blue jar!

I decided to experiment with Garcinia, specifically Garcinia Mangostana (aka mangosteen), why? simply because Garcinias in general are extremely slow growers, that couldn't be more true when it comes to Mangosteen. they are also extremely difficult to grow out of their habitat, requiring high humidity, specific soil mix, and tropical temperature all year round.

I chose a solar powered air pump I found on Amazon; so that I can move it outdoors when needed. The jars came with lids that are pre-cut and perfectly fits 3" hydro mesh basket.

I must admit I have not done any prior research to see if Magosteen would be a good candidate to grow in a DWC set up. It will be interesting to see how long I can keep it alive, I will be growing another seedling (same batch and same size) in regular soil mix to compare side by side...

its day two and I haven't killed it yet......To be continued.
