No need to rootstock this particular species. There are reports that it flowers at the 3 year mark and can fruit the next year.  Taste reports on this one is that it is one of the best tasting myciaria. I grow 20 of them and keeping them all. They are beautiful and the taste report I got is from someone I trust.

What I mean is I want to graft the roxa onto a rootstock. I only have  1 and want to make more!

The leaves look like it may be graft compatible with Glazioviana or Glomerata.
I hadnít heard of this one yet.

Use whatever rootstock you have available . Sabara are most common.

It's not roxa pulpa ...and it's much different than sabara. I'm going to try sabara but just by the looks seems like they would be too far apart in relation

My largest Roxa Polpa is 5 years plus and not close to fruiting.

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

Thanks! That's kinda what I was thinking.  Need to find a seed source M. glazioviana now!
