Ofcourse it has calories as it contains carbohydrates.
It is in no way similar to a sweet potato with the minor exceptions that the part consumed is subterranean and that it is consumed post processing.

Sweet potatoes are sweet and have calories, Konjac, or as I'm familiar with it こんやく, is processed into a paste which is cooked into either blocks or noodles, and is basically just plant fiber (no calories).

It's a fantastic dieting food, as it provides the sensation of being full, and all the nutrition for your microflora, but lacks the calories.

Here is a shortened episode.

I had to prune my Changsha Citrandarin - tragically enough. There was critical bark die back due to a wound infected by mould during our wet winter. So I had to cut off one of its two biggest branches, about 80 cm long and very well branched. Now I have this otherwise very strong branch and can send it whole or in parts to those who would like to have budwood or cuttings.

I have the plant from (Mr. Meeder, Germany). It is still listed there (; No. 9). I have not yet gotten fruits. So all that I can say is that it is a strong plant on Poncirus rootstock that has thick thorny twigs and thick evergreen leaves.

In case that more than one person is interested I would divide the branch. I live in Germany. So I can ship to countries in the EU, probably to Brittany, Switzerland and all countries that have no importation bann for Citrus plants.

Picked up a plant yesterday. Is it basically the same as sweet potato?

Dwarf musa Orinoco.   Mostly because it is the only banana I can get to fruit.  But it is very good and actually getting fruit is more than half the battle, right?

Just watched a video.  Reflective Bird Scare Ribbon will do the trick.

The scion appears totally dead, while the roots don't. I'm curious what causes this condition. I may not be correct, but would expect a disease attacking the root system first, to kill the root system outright.

Look again, I think those are lime leaves.

tropical-farmer..... I looked at your videos of the mediation garden. Very impressive. I also like what Weiss has to say so you are both correct.
Personally -- meditation is a waste of time. Best prayers are said out loud. Nam Myho Renge Kyo and heart sutra recitation is more effective. As in..... say it out loud. Mantras, minding breaths etc. in meditative silence evaporates into the ether unless you are living off boiled nettles in a cave.  Like Milarepa.
While the story of Milarepaís cave is a powerful example of one manís journey to discover his relationship to the world, we donít need to seclude ourselves in a cave and eat nettles until we turn green to discover the same truth for ourselves! The scientific discoveries Ö

Or Ray Dalio doing TM for 40 years. D credits TM for his success as a  hedgie worth 20 billions. Axe in TV show Billions is half modeled off him.

Thanks for the Cooper fungicide information. I'll try fertilizer and see if that helps. I planted it last year and it pretty much hasn't done anything since then.
