Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Sweet Potatoes? Please help
« on: October 20, 2019, 10:06:34 AM »
So every year for the past few years we have been growing sweet potatoes or at least attempting to with very disappointing results. I have looked through YouTube scoured through academic papers but so far no real luck. I've been hoping to grow large tubers, the NPK suggestions really aren't clear. The only universal thing agreed upon seems to be loamy/sandy soil. Can anyone help clear this up for me?? All of my tubers thus far have been tiny 50-100 grams at most

For those of you in the GVRD, Phoenix Perennials in Richmond has a 2 for 1 sale on all citrus. I just picked up a Moro Blood Orange and a Owari Satsuma.

Cold Hardy Citrus / how can I keep citrus trees in optimum temp
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:28:42 AM »
So as I have mentioned before I have a pretty good selection of citrus trees which I hope I can eventually have high yields from

anyways, notwithstanding I have been looking into grow tents, most likely designed for the Mary Janes. We have quite the rainfall around this time of year, every year, we probably won't see a whole lot of sun until April of next year. Anyways. if anyone is more familiar with grow tents, grow lights and alike please help me educate on it as I would REALLY like to keep as many green healthy leaves as possible this year

Citrus General Discussion / Adding plant hormones?
« on: August 30, 2018, 01:07:29 AM »
Hi, I've been looking into effect of gibberellic acid and found an old post from Millet mentioning higher yield. Yet I have more questions. An article I had been reading mentioned that during winter, naturally occurring levels of gibberellic acid along with nitrogen drops and affects the quality of the fruit. If one were to supplement that through foliar feeding or other means would this be something that would not take?

Cold Hardy Citrus / Temperature dropping, fruits still not mature
« on: August 29, 2018, 12:50:06 AM »
Hi, wondering if someone could chime in on this, I've got myself an assortment of citrus trees in the last little while a Santa Teresa Feminello, a Sudachi and a Yuzu. Now, if anyone here is from Vancouver or surrounding area, you would know that temperatures have dropped dramatically and we are getting into the rainy season. I've got a few fruits on both the Yuzu and the Santa Teresa, unfortunately another year with no fruits on the Sudachi... maybe someone could give me advice on this one too... anyways, with the fruits still green and juvenile, I am afraid of losing the fruits that have been growing at a steady rate the last little while as temperatures continue to plunge. Should I bring it indoors and give it artificial light? on the non-rainy days we are getting thick clouds of smoke that has been blocking the precious UV rays or leave it as is?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Where to buy rootstock in Canada?
« on: August 29, 2018, 12:41:06 AM »
Hi longtime lurker, first time poster. I am wondering if anyone knows a good source for flying dragon rootstock. I just bought a yuzu tree and would like to clone it... if anyone knows a seller in the GVRD, it would be much appreciated.
