Annona duckei, Annona paludosa
« on: August 15, 2020, 11:59:00 AM »
Hello all,

Recently received seeds for A. paludosa and A. duckei from trade winds figuring I would give them a go. My goal is to try grafting other annonas to create hybrid fruit as well as the delight of trying the duckei/paludosa fruits themselves. Anyone have experience with these species? I would appreciate any info as I'm a novice.

I've received some paludosa seeds from richard on here- I soaked them in 300ppm GA3 at a random suggestion and planted in pure vermiculite- no sprouts yet but fingers crossed

From what I have read about A. paludosa, its species name suggests that it grows in swampy areas.  It is found in northern S. America and sounds like the plants prolly don't like being allowed to dry out too much or very often, so plan accordingly.

OK HTH

Elouicious - how long have you been waiting? Do you regulate temperature for germination?

Paul - thanks, will do. Hopefully keeping the soil moist is enough.

Grafting does not create hybrids.

Hybrids are created by cross-pollination of flowers.

Makes sense. Is an atemoya created with male squamosa/female cherimola, female quamosa/male cherimola or both? Does both ways create the same hybrid or?

The difference of which is mother would make some difference in the offspring.  But the name "atemoya" has been used for both combinations.

Most are Annona cherimola  X  Annona squamosa.  [Mother listed first.]

Thanks for the explanation Guanabanus. Are you aware of any hybrids being created with paludosa/duckei? Finding this type of info is proving harder than thought.

Mine have been on vermiculite for ~1 month, also on a heat pad, watered almost daily

Richard claims they have a long germination time (hence the GA3 soak)- other Annonas I have grown seem to have a reliable "timer" where there will be no germination for months and then all the sudden you have 100% germination.

Richard also claims they are great for container growing-

Fingers crossed some sprouts come

And I thought the "germination may take 1-6 months" was a bit extreme, guess not. Im keeping the soil moist and the humidity high. Hopefully yours will pop up any day now. What do you have planned? Also is there a post where Richard shows pics and discusses his experience? Not sure who Richard is.
