Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Sugarcane cuttings: How to handle?
« on: September 02, 2019, 02:50:39 AM »
You can get nearly 100% rooting by laying or standing them in water. Make sure the node is covered or close to being covered. We within a week you'll see swellings from below the node project outward and for roots. The node swells and forms a leaf growth structure soon afterwards. Once the roots have hardened and turned brown I plant in soil. Takes about 3 weeks. Make sure you change the water every day or 2.
I have seen some videos on youtube that confirm your method. The key is changing the water daily

I have one tree that set a lot of fruits every year! I thought they are self fertile

are the seeds hard shelled? Do they have a long viability?

Yes it's in the macropropagation manual. It needs to be done right after you take it from land not after 20 days when pests are already inside.

In this video the time for treatment is 30sec and the water is boiling. 10sec seems very short to kill the pathogens

The best would be that the sender drops them into hot water at 55C for 10 seconds then dry them. Quite hard to find someone do this accurate without killing the corm ;D This is what I do.
A lot of pests are in soil in Thailand which are carried to the bulb, eventually they will infect your soil. The best method for free pathogen plants is tissue culture.
Is that method proven? I can do when i receive them or is not the right way

An idea how to save the banana corms?
It seems the core is alive

Is it common propagation by seeds? How long does it take to fruit?

Looking for
Green Sapote, Lucuma, Mamey Sapote, Ross Sapote


I have bought many times yellow papaya seeds on ebay, never got a germination.

the taste is not as good as other varieties... like Gaek Dam (blows out anything sold in Hawaii)  you could call this like a 'cooking papaya' 
If you want in January can send you seeds, but not sure if true to seed.  I have no males on property now, but several hermies of Gaek Dam I think are still hanging around.  Lost my giant male Gaek Dam in monsoon last year.
I am confused from which varieties are males, females or hermies you have there

I have ordered and received seeds but not the best quality
tradewinds has better quality

Hi, unfortunately it's not possible to send seeds from Brazil to abroad since march 2018. Customs is returning all packages to sender.
That is very true. last year my package was twice returned to sender and i had problem to get my money back. Finally i got the paymant back due to paypal.

He was active as of 7:30pm this evening on the forum. He's reading this, and he's not responding for a week now. Conclusion: hes a scammer. Just like the guy who used to sell the giant yellow dragon fruit seeds, but never showed his plants or sold cuttings. He disappeared from his own thread for over a year now and despite being called out by me, spaugh and others a few times, never responded. And yet he's active on this forum often. He was on two weeks ago

I think we need a sticky thread at the top with any and all info we have regarding known and suspected scammers. Of course, we don't want to incriminate anyone hastily, so of course, the accused can have their opportunity to present their case and have their name removed. Thoughts anyone? A perm-thread to warn forum users about known scam artists?

BTW: the name of the dragon fruit guy was Carlos Batista who goes by "DragonFruit101" and lives in Kissimmee. Has a facebook page but I won't post here. Here's his last thread:

He got run off of a Dragon Fruit Growers facebook group because of all of the salty former customers on there.

I fully agree! I also got seeds from DragonFruit101 nothing special.

Any update from the suspicious seller? haha!
