I have rooted them in straight perlite that was getting misted multiple times daily. I also used rooting hormone on the cuttings themselves, and it took a really long time to take.  Don't remember on success rates, but they are a slow start for sure.

I'm going on my second year of growing garlic. Everyone whose gotten some says its the best garlic they've had.  I buy my bulbs from Filaree garlic farm and usually get a variety pack.  Definitely worth growing every year as it seems to be about ready to harvest right when summer veggies are ready to be planted.

Had some pretty insano sweet basil flavored Casimiroa sp. from giant old trees outside of Atitlan Organics in Tzununa Guatemala. Lots of big old growth Casimiroa in Guatemala, definitely worth exploring and collecting scions from out there!

If you are selling seeds of that Mouriri sp. I'd be super interested!

Does this even exist?

I don't think they are closely enough related to hybridize.

The seedlings i got from Hawaii are a couple months old. The plants from Forest Farm appear to maybe be 6 years old?

Haha nice! I'm from Redwood city. Can always trade scion wood depending on which one of us gets a female.  I also have a couple of seedlings from a supposedly bisexual M. rubra from hawaii. I found a white tag with an ODate at 4/16/2012, which makes me thinnk they may have been propagated in 2012?  Seems crazy, although they are a pretty decent size. 

Same here, Would really be stoked to get my hands on one or two!

I snagged the last of what they had, sorry guys! I ordered 4 (plants not sexed) and noticed they disappeared from the website after ordering. 

Thanks for pointing it out shane.

Bump, looking to grow as many different cultivars as possible!



Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: SF Bay Area Tropical Fruit Experiment
« on: December 11, 2018, 09:19:39 PM »
Hey guys. I am way overdue for an update video. If I could sum it up, the subtropicals have done ok but nowhere near their best. I don’t think it’s worth growing trees that putter along and struggle to produce any fruit. If I were going to stay in the Bay Area I would probably keep the cherimoyas and jaboticabas and replace the rest with figs, white sapote and other proven plants. Anyway, the conclusion of the “experiment” is that I’m moving to the Big Island of Hawaii so I can grow tropical fruit for real.

Oh daaang! Your making the move for real! Have an amazing time Joe!

Try looking into Korean Natural Farming and rebuilding populations of indigenous microorganisms.  All about creating healthy ecosystems above and below soil level.

Got the seeds very shortly after shipping.  Marcos is the man!

Thanks for reporting and good luck with them!

100% germination on Orange eugenias so far, 3 days since planting and already all shooting

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What type of pest control do you use?
« on: November 14, 2018, 03:22:44 PM »
I have planted a lot of native annual wildflowers that have ecological function the beneficial insects native to my area.  I don't spray anything and usually most issues resolve themselves given a little time.  I currently have whitefly and scale on a couple of things, particularly those in my greenhouse, and that's mainly done by mechanical control (squishing or spraying with high power water).

Foliage was cut and I watered it after about 4 days of not having been watered.

Just dug up my V. palandensis and potted it up. Hopefully it will survive the transplant! I also took a lot of cuttings and I am trying to root them, so hoping for the best. Pretty sure it's a female based on flower rack structure.

Oh, very cool. Report back on your findings on the low heat intensity fruits. I live in Santa Cruz now and I have lost a significant amount of heat from where I used to live, haha.

That seems pretty irresponsible of plantogram haha

I got Asimina parviflora seeds from barnhill nurseries off ebay. 

Dang it, so used to being on this side of the forum that I completely forgot. Sorry about that mods, could you potentially move this into temperate for me?
