I still have a copy of his grafting skills on the tree you are just mention. That was a fun forum, you can pick-up a lot of knowledge from those guys. I still have contact with a couple of the old timers.

I am growing Turmeric and ginger also for many years but never use any.I was going to use it as candied ginger.
I am looking for a Pandan plant but can not find one. I was told there are several different kinds, well that screw me up.

Well i can send you one or can send you 4 for the same price because shipping will be $10.00. You got to have a little more than one. What if somebody offer you budwood!!!. Be ready.

Susanne, do you want me to send you a small tree?

I have 4 or 5 little tree's that are about 3 years old and are ready for grafting. N/W Arkansas.

Millet the grafts that i did with your budwood are doing great, 4 out of 4 not bad!
Got one question, the leaves on one Santa Teresa looks quite big,is this normal?

Bought some sionwood from Frank and grafted them on my 4 year old Mr.Minh atemoya. Out of 3 pieces got 2, which is not bad. One graft is also being air- layered, do not know if it work.

Yes, i use those pots for most of my new grafts, first year, maybe the next year before repotting. I bought those pots on e/bay several years ago. I believe i bought 2 dozens. I love them. I have several grafts started as you can see in another picture.

Hope to live long enough to see for them to come to fruitation. My venture in citrus growing started a little late in life, long story.

Big tree, little pot not good, possible root problem. When going to a bigger pot do not fertilize yet,just water with a p/h of about 6 or 6.5. Keep in shade.

Millet, you seems to have the source for a lot of citrus varieties. You got to have a vary interesting set-up. For me to learn about citrus was a trip in it self.I am getting better now i know how to feed them.
The little tree's in the top picture were grafted in March, from there i think they are good to go. Millet if you have a couple sticks extra,i be more than happy and would gladly reimburse you. Bob, thanks.
