Telfairia pedata
« on: February 08, 2019, 08:56:42 AM »
Telfairia pedata anyone ever mess with this vine?I put two on a mango and some on jaks that i didn't like.The one on the mango I sawed off because it's to aggressive and the sawed off ends  rerooted to the soil, it's to bad  because one was flowering and was female. Seems much more aggressive than ugu TelfairiaOccidentalis.

I want to grow it in a container. What do you think, what volume to use for cultivation?

Growing in a pot might be a bit of a challenge this vine is massive I have a 2 year old female vine that is 6 inch thick supposed to reach 100 feet long.Telfairia pedata is much more aggressive growing than Telfairia occidentalis which I am growing now,and have fruited.

The sizes are impressive! I have plastic barrels of 200 liters, maybe I'll try this. In my collection was Telfairia occidentalis from Cameroon, I lost a plant, I'm going to try again.

I think I saw that this vine will grow in zone 10 and up. What's the likelihood that if it is exposed to a few hours of hard freeze it will regenerate from the roots? It seems that it would have a huge root system. Thanks, D

Yes zone 10 or higher,Telfairia occidentalis seems more cold sensitive than Telfairia pedata. Other problems are nematodes.I don't( think) it would survive a freeze to the ground most likely rot would set in.

I treated the seeds with GA3, after 10 days they sprouted. Now it looks like this.

I have not yet made a final decision on how to grow it. For starters, I'll try 12 liter plastic pots.
I have 20 seeds left. I am ready to exchange them for something else. I am interested in Cocoa, Duguetiya, Durians, Macadamia and much more.
