Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Clusia as dragon fruit trellis?
« Last post by mangomadness on September 28, 2020, 11:40:03 PM »
you can use another plant as a trellis, but i am a bit concerned that if the two plants share the same soil then you wont get the max nutrients for either

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Tips for citrus planted on a slope
« Last post by Cjpflaumer on September 28, 2020, 11:37:53 PM »
Okay sounds easy enough. Thank you both. I saw pictures where they suggest you decrease the slope at the top and build up the bottom so make a small flattened area, which sounds pretty much like you guys are saying. I wasn’t sure if when it rains too much water would be pooling up or not but sounds like it should be good. Luckily I only need to put two trees on the slope the rest are on more or less flat ground.

(I would) maybe keep an eye out to make sure that water doesn't collect on the flat stump,(if that is a possibility) and rots. gl

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Dragon fruit does not fruit
« Last post by spaugh on September 28, 2020, 11:07:35 PM »
Maybe you need a different dragonfruit to get pollen from.  Do you know which varieties they are?  If its the same type then it won't work if they aren't self fsrtile or if they just aren't compatible types. A

Also, try doing it right when they open in the night around 9 or 10pm so the dew isn't ruining the pollen.  If you are near the coast and its wet at night, then cover the flower after pollinating with plastic bag for a day. 

If you want pollen, you can use some of mine but you would need to get it the same day and use it asap.

I think about pretty much any gardening soil will work.  It is a vine and will grow much more than you will expect.

I wonder if the USDA does stings like that posting fake listings.
Unfortunate most people have no idea about greening disease media doesn't cover it.

If the US warned of it as Bio terrorism that would scare some people away from doing it.

I do no know what the consequence is , but if people are losing their lively hoods maybe they should serve jail time.
I mean I go to a guys house, with a chain saw and chop his whole fruit  trees down in his state millions acres  of them I am sure I would serve jail time.

I like watching my bad movies in silence , but that comment brought back Memories for me as well , but for svengoolie.
Guess He's nation wide now on metv used to be for the Chicago area (we never had cable or cared )

Svengoolie's mentions of the Chicago suburb of Berwyn are met with an audio clip of several people groaning "BERWYN?!?

Hay Bovine maybe you could get off the pot, and try this could be your new cash crop jut learn to become a chemist.












Did you ever make it down to Florida to buy your plants I thought I saw on the local news the bully boys chasing someone with flip flops.  Night Gallery was the best. There's more than enough dead chickens in our cemeteries. No need to watching a clown with a rubber chicken.

This was one of the better shows that came out of that area Second City Television
