Kratom tree cuttings sale/trade
« on: July 13, 2019, 11:19:40 AM »
Not really a fruit but very useful tree. Fresh healthy unrooted cuttings for $5 each plus shipping. Root fairly easy this time of year. Working on rooting some now myself but not yet ready.

Will trade for zone 8 hardy fruiting bushes or trees. Nut trees too. Heirloom veggie and herb seeds too maybe. Want mostly perennial hardy to my zone plants but will consider anything. Make offers!

Get you some rockwool, while you wait on buyers. You could bump up the price another few dollars because they are rooted, and still undersell these Kratom Headhunters who beleaguer the community

Yes I'm trying to root a bunch now. Still three people in line waiting on rooted cuts. Many unrooted available though.

Yes I've seen people charge $20 each on unrooted cuttings! Feel like a butthole asking $5 each myself but that's far more fair. Small rooted cuttings I've seen going for $30+ each and I sell them no more than $10 each. It's really no cost much on me why kill people with unfair prices...

Sorry, amateur questions.  Do you have these in a green house or do they tolerate the winter in your Climate?  Can they be container grown or does it need to be in ground?

They cannot handle the winter here so I keep them potted. Either in a greenhouse or inside during winter. I hear they will build better potency in ground but otherwise they do very well long term potted. When I lived in central South Florida I had some in ground that did very well.
