Great post Bill. I'm not sure if this helps any, but more information is always good.

Dongkui has the highest sugar content, but Wandao has very low acidity and seems to be the sweetest. I remember reading somewhere that Wandao is the same as Late Growing. Is this true?

You should really wrap them with buddy tape or parafilm

This, and ASAP. They need high humidity right now. At least bag them up if you don't want to wrap them. They'll have a tough time reviving if left out in the open, especially in sunlight. Good luck!




Do you think this is enough? I also made a cut at the bottom of the trellises, so they don't get fungus. Should I still wrap them with parafilm?

Looks good! I like the vents. I try to keep the humidity around 80-90%. Early on I like to see a little bit of condensation in there.

Hey Kaz, that's amazing! I'm not sure my eugenia will survive long enough to graft.

Pagnr, thanks for the head's up. I did search albino before I made this post and it was nothing but death.  I'll dig some more

Hi shmojojojo,

You got a variegated variety, ultra rare.  Maybe you can sell it for couple thousand.

Al

Hey Al. I wish! I don't think it's going to survive. I read after the energy from the seed depletes, the plant dies because it can't photosynthesize. I also read they only survive a few weeks, but this seedling is about 5 months old. So I don't know... 

plantperson, yeah I figure it's a goner. But it is slightly yellowish and has survived longer than I thought it would. I might add some osmocote next

One of my e. beaurepairiana popped up albino. I've read the bad news about albino seedlings, but is there any way to save this? Anything I should try? I've only done low dose iron spray. The trunk is starting to harden, but it's fallen way behind the others in growth.

I'm in! Thanks Jason!

You may consider a heating mat. I had success doing exactly what you’re doing but with a heat mat underneath, also make sure you have a bunch of holes in the bag and some air flow.

My last order did well doing this, but I think I took them out of the bags too soon. The branches were dry and I lost 2 of 4. That's a big heat mat. I probably have enough of them to cover it, but they're busy right now ;D

I have this crazy idea...right above that photo is a round vent for a ceiling exhaust fan. I'm thinking about tenting the plants with some painter's plastic and run a duct pipe down the wall and under the tent to vent out my heated air into the tent at night. I really should just move them inside... Thanks I actually forgot about holes!

Only one of my trees (DK) showed possible signs of nematodes. It was just one bulbous root that I cut off. Other than that, the trees look really nice! I also soaked in B1 Start for about an hour and watered the soil with it. I've had great results using it in the past for other trees. The plants skipped transplant shock and new growth would appear just a couple days later.



Already in their new homes. I know these plants are cold tolerant once they're established, but is it ok to leave them out at night while they're recuperating? My lows are in the 40-45F for the next week.

Nice meeting everyone at the bus stop. Trees are ready to be picked up!

11
On my way! I should be back home around 4pm. I'll text everyone before I leave and after I get home

I commented on Wednesday and asked Bill to allow me to pick up trees in West Covina. He said that he would set my trees aside for that purpose.

Yes, you're picking up from me in West Covina. I sent you a private message here and to your e-mail (from your profile link) with my address and contact information, but I didn't hear back from you. Please message me back here or at phono91006@yahoo.com, so I can give you my address and you can pick up your trees. Thanks.

13
Thanks Bill!

I still haven't heard back from Pasca. I sent you a PM regarding pickup. Please reply ASAP

14
Trees landed in SFO.

Great news!

Thank you too, Bill. Glad to help.

I have some available 1/4" 3/8" sizes

Willing to trade as well

Nice! Good luck with it

I edited my last post, but not sure if people will see it, so I'm posting here.

I planned on putting the trees in a bucket of rain water for storing, but since most people are picking up same day, maybe it's best to leave the trees in their original bags until they're picked up. If you do want me to keep the roots in water, or any other request, feel free to let me know. Also, I'm near a Home Depot if you would prefer to pick up in a public place.

Hey Ryan. So far the only thing I can find out here is 1gal and above. I plan on searching for more soon. I'll ask around and see if I can find some shippable seedlings. Oh btw, I added you on facebook - Mojo Fruits ;D

ok, Right now the following LA folks have decided to pick up from Shaun's place in West Covina.

33   shmojojojo (Shaun)
37   pinkturtle
67   fruit4me
   89   wanxu29
   87   YanXing
46   foreveryoung
31   Epiphyte

Okay, sounds good. Most everyone has contacted me already. If not, PM for my address. I'm working from home, so my hours are pretty flexible for pickup. Hopefully everyone can pickup same day.

Also, I plan on keeping the bareroot trees in a bucket of collected rainwater with a bag over them and a rope tied around the bucket to seal them in. I'll put them in my greenhouse for extra protection. Is this okay with everyone or is there a better way to store these trees?

EDIT: Since most people are picking up same day, maybe it's best to leave the trees in their original bags until they're picked up. If you do want me to keep the roots in a bucket of rain water, or any other request, feel free to let me know. Also, I'm near a Home Depot if you would prefer to pick up in a public place.

I'd prefer to pick up from Spring St. if possible. I'm in West Covina and can hold some trees to save someone a trip to Santa Monica.

Bill, I made a slight change to my order on the spreadsheet. I also added a tree and sent you $50 on paypal.


Thanks again Bill, Ronni and Jozeph for your time and effort!

Good luck with your surgery and recovery!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Good rootstock for Myrciaria sp. Roxa?
« on: November 28, 2022, 10:52:36 PM »
Try m. glazioviana. It's the most available myrciaria and seems pretty durable and easy to care for. I believe Adam from FFF grafted a couple different myrciaria to it. Good luck

Good luck!

You think the foliage looks like a garcinia??!?

I'm no expert on garcinia, or anything for that matter, but some have leaves that look like your pics.

Here is Campomanesia xanthocarpa. Veins are different, but they look a little similar.

Looks kinda like Campomanesia, but usually there's a calyx on the fruit. Probably a Garcinia
