Pork Fat Nut: Hodgsonia macrocarpa
« on: December 03, 2018, 02:24:30 PM »
Hi all. I'm posting this thread to post my progress with this species. Perhaps it would be better posted on the fruit section? I'll let you all be the judge.

I got the seeds from Roy. I currently have 2 actively-growing vines, 1 maybe 2 in the early "stunted" stage, and 2 unaccounted for (I dare not dig them up under current circumstances). I went for 6 to up my chances of getting a male and a female. I might try to take cuttings if the vines branch, but it's too early for that at the moment.

They're sharing the container with several Jarilla chocola, and the trellis with the African Air Potatoes.

How long did it take to germinate? How did you germinate them?
I got them from two different vendors and none of them germinated.
Caesar said his seeds germinated in just 2 weeks. Mine has been several months.
