Just potted all my Psidium's up. Have had amazing germination. A lot of things germinated within a month and within the next month, most of the seeds that hadn't germinated began germinating. I'd say I had 75-100% germination on the seeds. Thank you Marcos!




Wow, thanks for sharing it! I have many sprouted seeds too :-)

These are just a few of them:

Psidium robustum:






Psidium guajava mexican cream:



Eugenia repanda:



Psidium myrtoides: black arazá

More seeds: Psidium robustum!

It fell to the ground unripe but it is turning yellow, so I think it will be ripe in 2 days.









The nice thing about it is that it will be no damaged by the fruit fly.

The plant withstood frost of -3º C without so many problems (only some leaves changed color), it is more resistant than P. myrtoides, which lost half of the leaves and suffered burns on the upper branches.

Maybe it could survive to -5ºC
