Growing in a pot might be a bit of a challenge this vine is massive I have a 2 year old female vine that is 6 inch thick supposed to reach 100 feet long.Telfairia pedata is much more aggressive growing than Telfairia occidentalis which I am growing now,and have fruited.
The sizes are impressive! I have plastic barrels of 200 liters, maybe I'll try this. In my collection was Telfairia occidentalis from Cameroon, I lost a plant, I'm going to try again.

Perlite is better than sand.
I prefer Perlite on the bottom and a little good draining potting soil on top.
I thought to do it in pure perlite, maybe I'll try it your way.

I just use well draining potting mix in a small pot and dont over water.
This is probably the easiest and safest way, I just thought that perlite would be a good alternative to sand, but before doing this I decided to find out if there were any positive results.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Red ylang-ylang fake or really?
« on: August 28, 2019, 09:18:36 AM »
Toptropicals had these for sale.It seems that its a cultivar of the regular ylang ylang wich means it might not grow true from seed.In that case you need grafted plants.
From seed it takes 5 years to flower.https://toptropicals.com/catalog/uid/Desmos_red.htm
The russian annonaceae i found on GBIF was a mistake,a tree from Malaesia,brought to Russia then got into an american collection.
I found seeds on ebay, but I think that this is a Chinese fake.

In Russia, only PAW PAW  grows in open ground, but many grow other Annonaceae in containers at home or in a greenhouse.

As for ylang ylang,why would you grow such plant in Russia ,when there are otther plants with similar flowers and scent that also make the best fruit,Cherimoya and sugar apples.
I am interested in growing any tropical and exotic species. And if I find something new that I have never seen in any collection in Russia, then I will definitely find it for myself.

Hi guys, recently I often come across information about red ylang-ylang. Who knows this fake or really such a plant exists. If this is true, where can I buy seeds?

Hi guys! Today I received the cuttings of a Selenicereus megalanthus from a member of the Grapebush forum. I always rooted the dragon fruit in the sand, but this time I want to try to do it in perlite. Who has positive perlite rooting results? Is this a good idea or is it better to use sand?

Dude, I canít imagine how much effort and money you have already spent on this! Once I also thought about building a geodesic dome, but after making calculations I realized that it was very expensive for me. I hope you succeed! Good luck

Verry nice flowers.If you like australian plants there is one you can plant it outdoor where you are,Eucalyptus Pauciflora Debeuzevillei.The most cold hardy eucalyptus with beautifull bark but beware that it poisons the soil like a walnut.
I think this eucalyptus is not able to survive in my area of ​​residence. From December to March, the temperature in my region ranges from -15 to -27 į C. But thanks for the advice, I appreciate it!

Great design for DF! I was going to do according to the method of Spicy Exotics as in the photo, but now I will do as you do!

Abe is very cool! Judging by the photo you have a lot of free space, I would plant a lot of interesting fruits. I envy your climate, unfortunately in Russia it is impossible to grow on the street.

Amazing!  Are you fruiting those in a greenhouse?
This year I grow them in a greenhouse, for the winter I clean them home. This has been going on for 6 years and I have not seen flowers yet, but I still hope.
