I use Tsugi Ro japanese grafting wax (Amazon) only to seal around the scions but any grafting wax would do. There is no need to seal the whole trunk cut.

Below is a bark graft of pomelos I did a couple of days ago where I used the wax:

Kaz, do we get "complimentary" loquat fruits also in the box? Just saying out loud what everybody here thinks down low. :))

I have a hass seedling that's been doing this and I was advised to use a filter for the water. I bought one that you screw to the beginning of the water outlet. It took sometimes I'd say over 6 months to come back to normal leaves. So I'm guessing it has to do with salt and unfiltered city water full of chlorine and such.

The whole point is to help people out that need rootstock to graft their infected Myrica Rubra plants to.
If it is somehow not appropriate grafting size , trust me I am not here to waste my time & money or anyone elseís.
Hey Bush2Beach, what would be the average diameter of this M. Californica? If it's too small for our F*****G INFECTED plants,  it wouldn't help. It needa to be at least 1/5 inch to be immediately usable.

Alright then, I'll take 4 also. Thanks.

Current fruit from Brad's cutting received some years back:

Even those that don't have the knots, they're now infected as they came into contact with each other.

It would be wise for all current and future Yangmei group buys to prophylactically treat their trees.

Simon

Future group buy? ROFL!!!

59
Is this something that can possibly spread if plants are permanently kept in pots but in close vicinity to other plants?

You need to keep them in pots and away from ground, if you want to be sure; itís why most nurseries use raised structures/tables to place their potted plants.

And use separate tools to handle the infected plants.

Also, my roots were shallow and dense. They completely filled the pot from top to bottom.

Kind of like fig roots, good to know.

61
Bill, could you give an estimate of the average length of the roots of a Biqi for example? Thanks!

62
Excellent, no RKN then!!!

63
Root know nematodes produce visually identifiable symptoms, knots or clumps among roots.
Do you see clumps or balls among roots, Bill?

64
I think instead of going into negative thinking, we should all research how to revive those bare rooted trees if and once we get them. That won't be a wasted time. To the Eagles!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Wholesale tropical nurseries?
« on: March 04, 2022, 08:52:25 PM »
I doubt there is any true tropical trees wholesalers in California or elsewhere beside Florida. And even Florida, if the "wholesaler" is not around Miami, be careful. Southern tip of Florida has tropical climate even though technically it's not in a tropical zone.

66
Unless I missed the post, we are compensating the couriers, excellent, I did my part although it didn't make it to Amy's chart, but what about Bill? Shouldn't we at least offer him something?

In my yard, the Miami variety definitely was not resistant to rot. Lost all my fruits due to it. The fruits would grow a bit, then turn black and drop. I cut the tree down.

Have you tried to bag the fruits? I know of 2 main causes for sugar apple fruit to turn black. One is the annonas borer. By laying eggs inisde the fruitlet, it could also injects spore of a fungus that turns the fruit black. Another cause is hot wind. If you tree is exposed to a wind corridor and there is hot wind for a couple of days or so, some fruits will turn black. I get this in So Cal with our infamous Santa Ana wind. Bagging fruits helps alleviate this to a certain level. I recently lost 3 PPC to this.

Can you please add a column to indicate where/who for LA / OC / SD?
I can go both LA or OC but have no idea where that would be. This would also allow us to compensate the right people.
Edit, I see you chose OC pickup. Message me your location. Iíll coordinate with you.
I donít understand what youíre asking for. A column for where/who? For LA, Joe is in El Segundo. I am in corona, but go through OC nearly everyday.

@RevivalR00ts, PM sent. I was only concerned about you location, Corona. :) It's quite a drive from OC.

Okay, confirm OC pickup from RevivalR00ts for OC. Please confirm location. Will pm for cost.

I read somewhere, forgot where, that you withhold watering 2-3 weeks before expected bloom time and then you hit them with bloom fert.
Of course, you trees must be mature enough to flower meaning at least 2 years old and with strong structures.

@pinkturtle Next time please pm me first and wait 2 days before posting. :)

I taught was 100% Squamosa

:) Looks like they beat the Aussies on that breeding front.

1) sunken in water

I think soaking in water is best for bare rooted plants like these. Vitamin water if possible like with Superthrive or B1 from HD.

If you could bring my order back, it'd be great, K-Rimes. Happy to compensate for the travel and hassles.

Thanks for sharing thera.

Iíve been doing some thinking and what I think would really help us all grow is more people sharing their tips and tricks, and trial and errors in grafting. So Iím going to create a thread and everyone that purchases scions from me will be eligible for a 10% rebate but here is the catch and only if: after 90 days you post a comment to the thread detailing your process, tools used, type of graft, type of rootstock , post graft care like storage and any watering or humidity details as well as pictures of the plants after 90 days, if this post is completed anyone will get 10% of their order sent back to them via PayPal.

-Joe

Joe, you forgot geographical growing environment
And I mentioned A. Reticulata because your Compat Matrix said Atemoya rootstock is incompatible with Soursop.


75
I believe in India, people have been using A. Reticulata as rootstock for anything Annonas since forever. And they even use it in breeding projects to create real nice Sugarlata such as the NMK1.
