Sent a PM with my updated list.

I'm really look for good size sections because I hopefully want to propagate my own. I also may need somethign on the thicker side as Ill be using em as rootstock for thicker cacti.

The thickest sized ones I have found were Pereskia grandiflora...they also have an upright growth pattern. The least vine like when they get large. Not sure about rate of growth, but they may better support grafts. I heard pereskiopsis is better for speed of graft growth, but I haven't read anything about that.

I am interested in learning new strategies for germinating Sideroxylon species and any other facts about their cultivation and use. Particularly Sideroxylon grandiflorum and well as any North or South American species with edible fruit.

I saw that toptropicals just got some larger trees in if anyone is looking to grow them.


Can just use an app on the smartphone to translate the text to english by snapshot.

dude, I gotta get that app...what's it called?

I just caught this message. Try Google Translator it has built in OCR translate.

Absolutely! I use this all the time to translate research papers and other documents. I highly recommend it, but there is a limit to how many pages you can translate at once and sometimes text bleeds into the charts and photographs...but it's great to use as a reference along with the original text.

Yes, let's not wish it too cold here. My ultra tropical plants could use a mild La Niña winter.

You should have postponed your flight for a day or two in order to check out the Fruit and Spice Park as well as Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The fruit stand "Robert is Here" located near-ish to Miami may have them occasionally.

I also could not get the website to work

Seeds came promptly and in excellent condition with some of each species germinating en route! As usual I am very happy with my purchase.

What do you grow?

Looking to buy or trade for live plants of Posoqueria latifolia & Gnetum gnemon.

Please PM if anyone would be willing to trade or sell me one or two of each.

Absolutely. There wasn't a lot of information out there when i first started researching them. Germination and the initial seedling phase are the biggest hurdles. Seeds also lose viability fairly quickly so fresh is best. Mature trees are virtually pest free.

About a year and a half to 2 years old now. Seeds are very small and they take a while to grow initially. The mature trees are outside here year round in 9b while the seedlings and immature trees stay in one of the greenhouses over winter.

This species and I have a terrible relationship. I have been able to keep them alive for up to 3 years maximum, but it always ends in tragedy. Would love to hear that someone had a successful attempt.

Nauclea latifolia - African Peach --- 49.99 each plus shipping.

***If you buy 2 or more --- 42.99 each plus shipping.

Plants are in thick and reusable 4 x 4 inch pots and 7 - 10 inches tall.

Please PM me if interested.

Ficus austrocaledonica --- 50.00 each plus shipping.

***If you buy 2 or more --- 42.00 each plus shipping.I

Only One Left

Plants are in thick and reusable 4 x 4 inch pots and 5 - 8 inches tall.

Please PM me if interested.

What species of Campomanesia do you grow? I was just curious because I ordered some from you a few years ago and wanted to found check.

Great seller! Seeds very clean and in excellent condition!!

Everything came in excellent shape! Worth every penny. André was also very patient and helpful. I highly recommend and will order from him again!

I usually have 80 to 90 % germination on this species from tradewinds fruit.

Depends on how high. Let me know...I'm in as long as we're not talking rare Myrtaceae seeds on ebay high.

Thank you Adam, sent them a message.

Think I found a source for small trees, hoping I can find something larger.

I tried messaging and was told that I need to be growing commercial to have any access to the trees.

What source do you have for the small trees? I'm looking to find one as well.

Might order some trees from overseas, and would need to sell a few if so. Hoping can find other options, but let me know if you would be interested in buying a tree. Would help my decision if there is interest, especially locally here in SoFL.

I tried repeatedly to germinate the (supposedly fresh) seeds...cold stratification, various parts per million and micromolar presoak solutions of GA3 (some with GA4 & GA7) to overcome dormancy. Tried this on many groups of both mechanically scarified and whole seeds. I got nothing. **Every time I type "scarified" autocorrect changes it to "sacrifices"... ??? I think my autocorrect is trying to tell me something. HAHa

Definitely down to buy 2 or 3 Myrica rubra trees as long as the price is not astronomical. I know other people stateside must have them. Do you know if they will they be clones, grafted, or good luck male OR female seedlings?
