Caesar or anyone here have the D. bulbifera edible types that have angular looking bulbils?

Bumping this thread to see of anyone now has seeds of any of the cold hardiest types. Fantastic, Joey, Lila, etc.


Definitely would be interested in this species too. Also rather rhizomes than seeds.

Still fresh seeds available. Hit me up!

Definitely will check out your site after I'm off work. Thanks for the reply!

If anyone in the USA has live plants of the Chilean guava I'd certainly want to buy/trade for some. A guy from Germany sent seeds last year and I got many sprouts. However while still young my chickens knocked over and messed them all up... I don't mind if it's the black or red type or any specific cultivar etc. Just want to grow these!

Is that species definitely edible to the best of your knowledge? If so I might buy some seeds from you.

Fresh round of star fruit seeds available again. My dad came up from Sarasota with another large box of fruits from my original trees in his yard. Hit me up!

If I had the spare cash I'd totally buy her from you! Unfortunately tight right now. Maybe trade? Lots of entheogen species here.

The info that previous poster mentioned is good. They aren't always hard to root but this year I did have little success. Sometimes I've had near 100% success and other times less than 20% success. Anyways I'll list when/if I have extra rooted cuttings. Unfortunately to my embarrassment I couldn't get enough rooted for all askers this season. Still 3 people in line before the person above recently asked in which yes you'll now be fourth in line.

It is my understanding that the seeds are legal for ID purposes but cannot be actually grown. I've know people to successfully grow these indoors in the North but also have known them to grow exceptionally well from central FL downward outdoors with minor protection during freezes. There is a guy in Indonesia called "Dbotany" that sells E. novo seeds and T. iboga var. longpod seeds. There was a guy in Peru or Ecuador under the company name of "kiwibotanica" or something similar that used to sell E. coca amongst many other entheogen class species. Furthermore there is another guy selling true legitimate D. cabrerana and his name is Wouter but cannot remember his company name. There is some people in FL with that plant too if you can hunt them down or coax them to reveal they have it. Hope that helps some of you!

I have seen people this far north growing fruit on them successfully if the tree is properly microclimated. The original trees I grew are in my father's yard in Sarasota. He had sent me two boxes of 20+ lbs of fruit this season. I saved the seeds while eating some and preparing jelly with the rest. However so far I don't have a tree mature up here yet. Only been here a bit over two years.

Yes there are many unsprouted too but unfortunately they are all at the point of sprouting shortly either way. Undoubtedly many would sprout on the way even if I picked not sprouting seeds. They also cannot be dried out and must be shipped moist therefore also contributing to the likelihood of sprouting.

A few packs of Glycomis seeds available. Many are sprouting too. No extra charge for sprouted seeds. First come first serve will get the sprouted ones. Anyone interested feel free to PM me.

Most seeds beginning to sprout but not yet too far along. If anyone wants seeds please get them ASAP! Still many left to grab. After another week or so most seeds will be too far into sprouting to ship. Let me know!

Glad to have confirmation they are definitely edible. Thanks for reporting your experience with them!

If you want PM me with whatever you want for the leren plant. I might have enough in PayPal to send over.

Definitely let me know too what new types you've found!

I have a supposed variety of D. bulbifera that is edible. Came from a member here named Caesar. They came to me from Puerto Rico. There is a few small bulbils forming now. I have yet to attempt eating any but I bought them from him due to being an edible type. Don't look much if any different than the wild types here in FL that are toxic. I do believe him due to his interest in all things true yam. It's still a bit scary to try them though just in case. If you see this Caesar would you please let us know if in fact you yourself have eaten this type without issues of any kind. Also if you've sourced any new yam types I'll totally buy some from you. Also the leren tubers I bought didn't ever pop up after winter but I would try it again if your ever selling any. Probably got too cold for them here on my porch.

There also is a guy called Grower Jim here in FL that has an edible bulbifera type too. Maybe you could find and talk to him. He sells on eBay. He's got the one that the aerial bulbs look box like not just rounded looking. I myself would buy some if anyone out there has them and sees this. I'll contact grower Jim eventually either way. I have bought stuff from him before and he is a good seller.

Hope that info helps! DG

Yes forgot to specify FL members. I have other thread pertaining to citrus in which I specify FL members. Threw the post up quickly to see if there was interest at all.

My wife had juiced the fruits before I had gotten home but here's a pic of the half rinds near a lighter for size perspective.

For these key limes they are quite large if that spurs any larger interest. I'll try and remember to post a pic later. Larger than the key limes you see in the bag thingy at a store by a significant amount.

If anyone is interested in spiritual healing plants I have many available through the year. All listed here are legal so long as you only grow them for novelty or species preservation.

Available now:

Psychotria nexus leaf cuttings
Psychotria viridis leaf cuttings
P. alba/carthagenensis leaf cuttings
Banisteriopsis caapi unrooted cuttings several types
B. muricata unrooted cuttings
Trichocereus cactus seedlings many types
Kratom tree cuttings two types

Cuttings may or may not be tip cuttings which doesn't seem to effect rooting efficacy. Inquire via PM.

Kava is very shade tolerant and does well in a fairly lighted spot indoors. Definitely don't allow it to stay outdoors if it drops into the 60s.

Logees greenhouse company sells them from time to time but yes otherwise they are not easy to obtain. I've had and killed kava 3-4 times just due to leaving out a night or two in the 60s.

If you can post a pic of your M. speciosa I could ID it for you. At least in terms of the correct species not the strain. Most types hardy look any different from each other.

They cannot handle the winter here so I keep them potted. Either in a greenhouse or inside during winter. I hear they will build better potency in ground but otherwise they do very well long term potted. When I lived in central South Florida I had some in ground that did very well.

Gonna have tons of key lime seeds. A buddy came up from Sarasota with tons of them for us. Nice good sized fruits for a key lime. Checking to see if there's interest in the seeds. Let me know!


Yes I'm trying to root a bunch now. Still three people in line waiting on rooted cuts. Many unrooted available though.

Yes I've seen people charge $20 each on unrooted cuttings! Feel like a butthole asking $5 each myself but that's far more fair. Small rooted cuttings I've seen going for $30+ each and I sell them no more than $10 each. It's really no cost much on me why kill people with unfair prices...
