Seedling ID
« on: April 10, 2022, 04:01:50 PM »
Does anyone know what this seedling is? A few months ago I put my a. monticola seeds into what I thought were empty pots, but a couple weeks ago this popped up. The only thing I think it could be is C. guazumifolia, but none of my other guazumifolia seeds sprouted, so I have no way to compare it to know for sure.

That's C. guazumifolia. I have a similar seedling right now

It's interesting that it took it that long to germinate, as I got the seeds last august, but I'm still happy it sprouted regardless. Thanks for the help!

They do take a while to germinate. Richard Reid generously sent me 4 seeds back in September. One sprouted three months ago. Two others popped up a few weeks ago.
And while separating the three seedlings, I found the last seed with a new 1/4" white root sticking out. So don't give up them too soon! Anyways, congrats! I'm looking
forward to trying these. I hear they can fruit in just a few years
