This is a cutting/clone of red rover.  Red rover is better than fredrick and purple possum.  Thats why I am propogating more of this vine.  I have several hundred feet of fence covered in 7 types of PF. 

Someone in FL bought this one but I have one more extra plant ready in a couple weeks for you K rimes.  Thanks.

I'd be interested in one also if you propagate another.

It takes many months to get them rooted and growing but I will make more.  Can also sell cuttings for a buck if you guys want those.  What I do is fill a 1gal pot with potting mix then stick 5 or 6 cuttings in and stick it in the shade.  Usually a few of them spring roots and take off the rest die off.   So if you get a bunch of cuttigs its likely you would get some takers.

I don't know what you are asking?  I take cuttings and put in a plastic bag with wetted paper towel and send it.  Is that what you were asking?

If so... WOW!

He said he's selling cuttings for a dollar. Brad, I'll take a few cuttings too, along with some avocado scions. I'll PM you. :)

Hi Brad,  I'd like to get 4 Red Rover cuttings from you.  Also, do you have Avocado scionwood, or by any chance Loquat? 

How much do you need for shipping?

Yes I have avocado and loquat scions. 

10$ shipping in CA.  13$ outside of CA for large boxes of PF cuttings. 

My paypal is brad@paragontropicals.com

Please use the regular payment method, NOT friend and family.

Put your username here in the paypal notes and what you are ordering. 

Message me to make sure I have the types of avocado and loquat you want.

Brad,
The Red Rover cuttings arrived quickly and well packaged. Looked very fresh and healthy!
(I like those extra long zip lock bags you use.)
I re-cut the tips, dipped them in rooting hormone, stuck them in pro-mix, watered well and placed in the shady part of my greenhouse.

Thanks Brad!

I just planted the possum purple and a yellow one. Is the red rover a better option?

The purple possum is very similar to red rover.  Once you get it going and have some decent size branches I can send large cuttings to graft if you want to try that.

I havent done it but yes you should be able to graft it pretty easily.  Most plants can be grafted.

I just watched some YouTube videos. This opens a lot of possibilities :)

Oooh, this sounds fun!  I will also have to check back with you down the road as I have a few young vines started / seeded.
