Zanthoxylum simulans is monoecious species. Previous I grow Z. piperitum and I have no fruit, only flowers occured and then nothing else. But Z. simulans fruit without problems.

I ll get seeds from Carlos in very good condition. They travel only about 2 weeks from Brasil to Slovakia and I have nice seedling now.  ;)

Hi Vitor,

all seeds arrived in perfect condition.

how many do you suppose is an adequate number?  just curious.

Are you sure that it is Ilex paraguaiensis? I have this plant but it seems more like Caseenah (Ilex cassine)... It grows wild in Fl... ;)

If it is Zanthoxylum simulans, it is monoecious. Last year I have fruits on 2 years old plants. Similar species - Z. piperitum and some others are dioecious so you need both  sexes to get a fruits.

It seems that G. neuberthii grows very slow. Its not very frequent outside the area of natural distribution.

So when it can produce flowers and fruits I will be older than pyramids in Egypt ;D

How old they are? G. neuberthii germinated nearly 1 year- first sending small root downward and after 5 months it started to form shoot.

I have few plants of camu camu which germinated in july. After 2 months they became chlorotic and lot of them die. Then I read here advice to spray them with chelated iron and they started turn green. Now I use ketapang water as a substitute for iron complex. Seems it can help to recover the plants.

Thank you Carlos,

all seeds germinated well, excelent germination rate ;)

I order 15 seeds last year from Germany. Now I have 3 plants about 15 cm tall. Will try to post some pictures soon. They germinated very very slowly and because here in EU is very short day in winter months I put them under artificial light.
