Thanks!  Lots of people bought cuttings, I appreciate it very much it does help offset costs here.  All my stuff goes through my business account and is taxed then reinvested into my farm.

EB stone and fox farms both have organic 7-3-3 avocado food.  And theres fish emulsion 5-1-1.

None of it is going to be cheap especially if you are having it shipped to HI.

Ive got plenty more and am caught up on orders.  Can ship another box tomorrow if anyone wants these ones let me know.  Maybe 1-2 more weeks and these will be mostly done.

I bought 4 lucs Garcinias last winter from Ongs nursery. I dug an obscenely large trench for the deep Taproot. I backfilled with a mix of native soil, wood chips, and chicken manure. I dumped a bunch of warms into the top of the soil for good measure and planted beans to boost the soil nitrogen.


Here are the trees as of today. Still a looooong ways to go, but they're alive and slowly growing. I'm inland Carlsbad, about 15 drive from the beach.












Dude did you dig that hole by yourself?  Its huge!

The lucs look like they need a little shade.

I sent a bunch of boxes of fruit out today.  A few of them went to florida.  If you guys have problems because of the hurricane contact me and I will resend you a box. 

Theres still tons of fruit if people want boxes let me know, its raining passionfruit here.  Probably for another week or 2.  The plants have dropped enough now they are doing another mega bloom and there will be more fruit again in winter.

Jimson weed is highly toxic.  It will mess you up bad if you ingest that.

The pots are model TP815R.  They are an ok size for short term use.  If you plan to use them longer term and want larger trees in pots go with the larger sizes.  You need to call them to make an order.  They will sell you singles if you dont want a full case.

You can topwork the sugar apples as an option

Hmm... I had not considered that. I've grafted mango, both top work and onto root stock but am unsure about annona.

I saw Adam's vid on veneer grafting onto a seedling, would that be used for top working onto a sugar apple and what time of year would be optimum? Onto new growth or not?

That said, where can I get a number of Lisa and Dream scions?

You probably want to get other opinions but you could probably chainsaw the tree down to a stump and graft onto new shoots and just keep 1 or 2 of them as the new tree.  At least thats how I would try and do it.

I got a makita electric weed wacker.  Works awesome.  Its also the model that accepts different tips.  Im going to get a headge trimmer attachmwnt and start giving flat top to my citrus.  Check them out, the electric stuff is as powerful as small gas units now and no noise no fumes.  Im using a makita chainsaw and makita weedeater for small tasks.

I eat em day and night and they just keep getting better. Truly excellent. If you have more plants of Red Rover, let me know, could use three to fill a spot.

I dont have plants but can send cuttings.  Its not that hard to root if you have the right conditions.  You probably only need 1 vine though, these things will easily cover 50-100ft of 6ft tall fence if you feed and water it.

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?


I just use well draining potting mix in a small pot and dont over water.

Ive got 8 vines but many of them are young plants and not producing.  Some are experimental types from seed or from vines that are not common in california.  The 2 vines that I am selling fruit from are red rover and fredrick and they each make hundreds of fruits 2X per year.
