Don't be shy to guess!
If I hit my target score,
I'll give away
all the plants I listed so we will have 5 winners
ON the condition I get my happy score.
If not, I will be disappointed and mad and you will be disappointed and mad as your odds of winning decreased.
So let me get my score ACT please!


Hahaha, best luck bro. 

Did you feel like you boosted your score a bit this time or impossible to say?  I never took ACT, only SAT.

I hear ya on brutal summer, I could barely keep up watering like almost every day and everything was still begging for a drink.  Canít tell you how grateful I am to hear the sound of rain right now as I type this, finally had a fair bit just now. 

All Iíve got here is acerola, everbearing mulberries, and Jamaica cherries.  Iím still waiting on fruit from a lot of my trees tho, so hopefully in the next few years.

Iíve seen some pond apples dropping on the trails.  Just tried one the other day, was actually pretty tasty, but all seeds and almost no flesh.  Most years the animals eat them before I get chance to find a nice looking one, but I guess I was hiking at the right time this year.

Oh, I shouldnít have used the word ďforum,Ē I meant it in the general sense like different places of exchange, i.e.: eBay, etsy, etc.

I imagine people will occasionally pay it even tho itís a bad price. If you scroll the forum here there are multiple listings and the seeds are $2-3 on most I think, and now Raul offering for $2, lol, so itís definitely a case of know your market.  This isnít the spot for a boutique seed shop. 

I wouldn't be surprised if you can get $10/seed on other forums though.  If she's doing 2 for $10, then that's not necessarily horrible.

I know not everyone has access, but these have become way more available; Here in FL, if you look around a bit you can buy a 1gal tree at that price or $15, and yes, I've seen that a few times not just isolated instances.  The price of 4 seeds would buy you a decent 3gal tree.


Best luck!

Etsy is expensive because they charge through the nose to sell on their platform. There's no cost to advertise here.

Out of curiosity, what other tropical fruit forums do you visit?

Mine sit inside small pond shells.  Can fit 3 3gal trees per pond shell and I keep them sitting in rain water pretty much the entire year, only allowing them to dry out occasionally. 

They seem to like this as far as I can tell. 

Red, grimal, esalq, & restinga

Interested in the 4 min, sounds like probably should do 3F 1M.

FL

Thanks!

Mine just arrived today, sent yesterday I believe, super fast, but I am pretty close to USA intermediary here in FL.

Thanks!

Does Nauclea latifolia root easily from cutting?

13
I have a couple nice 3 gal ones, but wouldnít be able to ship.  Iím on East coast, Melbourne area.

Would love to get some of those ubajay seeds. 
Sent PM, but theyíre mostly not going thru at first.


Weird, I didnt received your PM, just mail me at marcospcmusica gmail.com, thanks

No problem,
I got your PMs.  Mine usually donít go they on the first contact, but my responses seem to go thru. 
Going to send $$$ today, thanks for response, much appreciated.

Awesome post.  Is there more info available on those cultivars?  Do you sell pineapples to the public?

I have a decent few pineapple plants, but havenít really been growing them with much vigor.  I gotta learn how to get them going strong and would like to collect all of these varieties.

Awesome quality. 

Wanted to say thank you, bought a handful of seeds probably few weeks back now and they all arrived looking awesome, many had germinated already or soon germinated in the bag after receipt.  I got a bunch of seeds from a few different eugenia varieties and all but one seed has been planted out and has sprouted.  I imagine the last one hopefully will germinate soon, but I canít even complain if thatís the only one that doesnít. 

Thanks for making this stuff available.

19
All good, no worries, glad you got some good mangoes and making seeds available.  I was just curious. 

20
$10 for the lot?

21
Got mine today, look great, thanks!

You recommend germinating in bag first or just plant em out?

Got the abiu seeds, looked great, just planted em out. 

Great seller, super simple transaction, much appreciated on offering these. 

Thank you!

23
Just got mine. Above and beyond, man, these got here pretty quickly and looked amazing.  I just potted out most.

You rock, thanks again!

I have two large Ilex Guayusa mother plants I grow here in Florida. Haven't had any luck propagating them, or getting any seeds.

Nice!  Is that one any more difficult to keep?

I have our native yaupon and Iíve got a Yerba mate.  I was able to propagate the Yerba mate from cuttings, idk if I had a lot of failures or not as sometimes I just go around cutting stuff and sticking the stems in pots, I discovered I had a small plant growing recently and itís grown pretty quickly as I recently up potted to 1gal.

The native yaupon holly and the Yerba mate are both super easy to keep here in FL.
Iíve never processed for tea, is it a lot of work?  I am guessing roll em, dry em, etc; but never tried would love to hear from someone whoís done it before. 

25
Yes, lots of them.

Got my seeds quick and they look like theyíre in great condition.  Canít decide if I wanna germinate em in the bag first or just go ahead and pot them out. 

Thanks again, def recommend and will probably buy more in the future.
