I bought a tissue culture plug of Black Madeira from Brian M.
End up with 7 plants in a few months.

How long for lychee AL there?
What is your after care for them?


Most new homes here use pex for hot water lines.
Heater at 140F.
Pressure at 50 psi.

If you can regulate temperature and pressure pex would be fine.

I have a saucer under the pot of a guava tree.
I flood it once a day.
On hot day like today I flood it twice.
It grows well.

Run a couple of loops of pex pipes.
Water flow of 1st loop should be opposite of 2nd loop to get even heating.
If not enough add another loop.
Or coil the pex to gain surface area to dissipate more heat.

My cold water dispenser has 20 loops of plastic pipe inside the refrigerator to cool incoming water.
No need for a radiator.

Use opaque pex so low algae growth inside pipe.
Or a few meters of copper pipe should transfer enough heat.

AP should be around 2 lb each at harvest.
They mature 2 months after TS.

I donít know what you have there.

Small $65 tree is sold out.
$85 tree is available.

Add a recirculating pump to divert hot water to your gh.

I thought it was a good idea when I bought 1 last month.
Now I have a good size cauliflora to use as a rootstock.
Iím waiting Grimal to grow a little to cut scions to graft.

I added saucers to 2 trees.
I removed them a week later.
Both trees have salt burn on new leaves.

Friend 1Ē trunk tree is at my home.
1st time flowering.

It had a fruit.
I ate it last week.
Much better than Trunciflora I tasted before.

Tree is holding another fruit. 3 weeks later than 1st one.

Tree is flowering again, much more than last month.
So maybe more fruits later.

How many seeds each fruit?

Infected trees in cities around me are being pulled.
Could be my turn soon.

Recommendation is for high yield, good enough fruits.
If you want better than supermarket fruits you keep less fruits.

Fruit loading for Fino de Jete cherimoya is around 0.22 kg per cm square of trunk area.
Other research concluded less than 0.22kg.
After conversion it comes to roughly diameter squared kg.
For example, a trunk of 2Ē should hold 2x2= 4kg of fruits.
Thatís 4 big fruits.

I would remove 1 when they were tiny.
Now, I would keep as is.

Thank you for those photos of your graft unions.
Those black barks on those graft could be this?

Use a 1Ē or wider strap.

I started to tip tall shoots to around 15 leaves since mid June.
Most shoots are tipped by now.

Fruits donít seem to ripen earlier.

You could cut half the trunk then bend tree top down to ground.
Cut it off after trunk have shoots with big leaves.
