Is this Lancetilla or rootstock?
« on: January 31, 2012, 07:33:20 PM »
Hi guys, another newbie question if you don't mind :)
Some time ago I went on vacation and came back to a dead lancetilla, I forgot about it and during our heavy rains it came back.  Now, I think is the rootstock.  I got it at Pine Island, is it this turpentine?
Thanks.

Foliage looks lancetillian to me. Looks very similar to mine.

Wow :o

it does look like its only pushing above graft union,  and this one held on by the skin of it's teeth.

Nice, I bet it will be real nice and dwarf for a pot, and well branched...

Hope its not just rootstock playing tricks on our eyes

Thanks guys.  I will transplant to a larger pot, perhaps a smart pot, and I will update once I see any fruits, maybe next year?!?!? Hopefully it is a lancetilla.
