Willughbeia angustifolia and W. sarawakensis
« on: September 19, 2022, 06:03:46 AM »
The growth of these two species have been very slow for me, the biggest plant of W. a. have reached only 1.5m up it's Pedalai host tree. And the largest W. s. have reached only 0.6m (next to a host palm).
Doesn't seams to grow faster with more sun, I have tested different sites with different sun exposure.
Irrigation did increase growth compared to controls.

Anyone have cultivation tips for Willughbeia?
Or are they normally slow to begin with?

Peace,

Wow that's a lot better then here.
You got a bit better climate for it possibly.

Did you do anything special, compost, , manure, fertilizer?
Did you plant it under a trellis or under a tree?

Wounder when they start flower? how big they have to be...
