The cuttings haven't taken root yet.  Want me to half one?  Feel free to pm me your number.

I see that there is a picture, but I don't actually see it. What is it? Have the cuttings taken root?  :D

Edit: I think the problem's on my end. I'm not seeing pics in any thread.

You may have to click them and expand.

Yes, they are budding out and taking root.

Anyone else not seeing the photos in the thread anymore?  I cannot see the original photos I posted of the host specimen.

I would love to see them, Viking could you modify your original post? You need to change the .org to .cc in the post image link.

I will try it from my computer when I leave work.  I can't even see their links from my cellular device.

The cuttings shot out new growth, and looked great, then croaked after a month.  Upon inspection, not one single root.

Same results I got before.  Don't understand why I can root every other blueberry variety I have, but this one won't take.

I am going to try an air layer next and we will get this show on the road.  I am not yet giving up.  I am also going to gnab some of the root ball.  Truly appreciate everyone's patience.

Not sure what the ops bb is but you can graft onto this guy for a tree like blueberries. Somewhere on you tube is a video of a bunch of shb being grafted on at a university research planting

How is it for fruit quality? I'll try anything once, but the arborescence of the "Blueberry Tree" from the thread isn't the main selling point for me (though it is a factor). It's the fact that it seems to be so resilient compared to other blueberries: low-chill, seemingly adaptable to multiple soil types, and productive to boot. It's an elite tree that may very well merit cultivar status. I'm really hoping Adam will release it soon, but the matter might not be in his hands. Time will tell.
