Hi, 7b, dont think so, maybe feijoa (Acca sellowiana);

8a: similar... -12ºC to -9.4ºC maybe Guaviyú, Ubajay and Feijoa.

I am preparing several packages these days, but since I was sick I will delay a little longer than normal, I think I will send by Wednesday.

Most of them are very good for pots.

By the way, an example of bulk order:

Adding new species!

* Uvita de campo (Salpichroa origanifolia) Perennial herb, rhizomatous, with weak, highly branched stems that lie on the ground or on other plants. The leaves are rounded. The flowers are small, campanulate, white, 1-1.5 cm and are born in the axils of the leaves. The fruit is a berry, ovoid, 2 cm long, which whitens when ripe; It has very nice vanilla/caramel smell and a sweet flavor (reminiscent of the grape, to which one of its vulgar names alludes). It is native to southern Brazil, northeastern Argentina, central Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay, It thrives in modified areas, fences and abandoned gardens. It can become a weed quite easily. It blooms in summer and fructifies in autumn.

Today I sent 7 packages

Sow in a good moist soil and wait 20 to 90 days for them to sprout (64ºF to 86ºF, 18ºC to 30ºC), in the shade; no summer sun when small, good water if possible (rain, acid), or without chlorine; use acid soil with sphagnum moss or river peat with nice forest leaves or so, garden soil, something that drains well like perlite or vermiculite, some organic matter ... I would later add manure, not when I sow. Never let it dry.

For myrcianthes, araticú, biribá, jaboticabas, eugenias, campomanesias, psidium, etc. (rainforest species):
Be very careful with the direct sun in summer or when it is very hot, get accustomed to the shade and never lack water. They could take full sun when taller than 2 feet or 60cm or so, before that, use morning sun or half shade (not too hot from the afternoon heat). Psidium and Campomanesias would support more sun, but take care: if they dont like your soil and/or dont have enought watering, they will suffer with more sun.

Chañar is from dry to humid climate (It grows in grassland where it has no trees above it and can live isolated.), it can live with 700mm to 1500mm of anual rain. I dont have much experience sprouting them but I remember they can take 1 month or more. They can take more sun than the others. Some people say “most of fabaceae family plant seeds need soaking in warm water for 12-24 hours. The germinating time will be shorter with this method.”

i'm interested in the orange COTRG. However, how old are the seeds?  How's the viability of the discounted ones?  That's my only concern.

Hi, they are perfectly preserved on wet vermiculite at 4 to 6ºC, so they are viable for 6 more months ahead. That's the way the scientist here at Argentina (Facultad de Ciencias Forestales UNAM) use to preserve this kind of seeds.
