Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: looking for green sapote seeds
« on: February 14, 2019, 01:15:36 AM »
Thanks to everyone that PM'ed me about the green sapote seeds. I got a lot of requests. So will try to get more fruits from a friend's tree. Please give me a few days to reply back to everyone.
Hi, were you able to find more seeds?
I didn't get any answer to the pm, was probably one of the first since I sent you few minutes after your post if I recall.
Was not able to get from tree i knew to be fruiting. Will try from other sources. Please hang on, as i'm trying to source some. It is right season here.
ok, thanks!

It is SPAM. It`s all about to get enough posts for full membership and post spam links.
It is very clever to name some plant names to get through spam control.


There is some serious effort if it's actually for spam lol

4
Isn't enough to open 18 topics for each plant you are looking for? You need to "up" each every day?

5
20 to 45 days to germinated planted right in soil under the jakfruit trees did not pay to much attention  would of had more but a rabbit I had other ideas.
Must have been unlucky both times then :(
Where did you get yours?

6
I think I have 5 growing in some not so great jakfruit trees .They seem resilient ,going through winter here.
 Also have 1 large ugu pod up in a kent tree,must weigh 40 pounds
How long did it take to germinate? How did you germinate them?
I got them from two different vendors and none of them germinated.
Caesar said his seeds germinated in just 2 weeks. Mine has been several months.

Hi,
What is the source of the tropical seeds?
Because many seeds have very short germination (under 2 weeks) and would be impossible to store long.
For example Inga and some Artocarpus.

8
Don't know if he has stock now, but I had good results with seeds from user achetadomestica.
They were super fresh and germinated rapidly.
Has both red and yellow version.

9
Yellow kiwi are quite easy to find but red aren't here in Italy.
Until last year there was some nursery in Europe selling them but it seem they all removed them now due to the patents. I regret not buying them sooner, but I didn't have space last year :(
The nursery in Italy only sell them to professional in very large quantity for plantation.

10
Were you able to find them?

If you find some let me know. They are super rare.

Where can I find that wood hammer tool?
The kind I see online have all large bowls.

Not sure about that one but this one is better I reckon https://bitsouttheback.com/queensland-nut-buster/

See it in action here https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=236&v=fNDSNCG4WtI

It is expensive and postage is a killer to you guys but it is nice. Do your shopping around, I just knew Rob sold them (and he is a good guy).

I remember as a kid my dad making a bolt through a triangle type that worked but was slow. Later I remember seeing the lever type but we never had one. The above seems better than any of them.
That's a nice one. I think it should be easy to build something similar.

I forgot to tell you I got to germinate the yellow muntingia.
Shipping with the fruit was a good idea.
They are very very very delicate however and takes forever to pass their minuscule stage, got a bunch killed like nothing.
Now I'm keeping all sealed in a bag, they don't seem to mind and I still have to water them since germination. I fear the time I'll have to do it, as there is hundred next to each other, it's basically a grass mat. Will probably go with a syringe.

Hi Maryoto, I also sent you a pm for kepel.

22
The beetles available in the store right now are all from tropical central and South America.
They need a temperature of 18-28 degrees Celsius to grow properly, best at 24-28, so itís not really doable in Europe. But they would definitely not be harmful to your garden. They feed on rotten oak and beech leaves and wood.
Oh pity, same for the millipedes? all tropicals?

23
Are these beetles something you could grow in the wild and would they be harmful in a garden?

The Hodgsonia vine is finally putting on some growth, I was beginning to worry.


When did you get your hodgsonia seeds? Mine in the summer still have to germinate, I think I have screwed up something.

Mine arrived on August 6. I think they took a couple of weeks to sprout, but then they spent a very long time in a weird state, with long-ish ground-hugging woody-seeming stems and strange growing tips that almost looked fasciated (and often dried up). This is the first time I've seen one sporting a proper vine (spotted it last week), and it's the only one that's done so thus far. Out of 6 seeds, 4 had sprouted. Not sure how many remain alive, I stopped digging around in that tub once the Jarilla grew bushy.
Damn, mine must have gone bad. Pity, they costed a lot and was looking forward to them :(
