Excited to share this pic:



After 3 - 4 years +, I can't recall for sure, passiflora laurifolia has finally set fruit. I only have one mature plant.

Just started 11 seedlings to pollinate, but they are all under 12 inches.

Must have been the pollen from p. nitida that I tried again to hand pollinate (had failed several times). Will try again to see if they are truly compatible. Either way, cannot wait to try this fruit!

I would not advise you to eat these mushrooms because it is better not to eat them than to take and die from the poison contained in them. Just recently, when we were resting at the dacha, namely, installing protection against leaves on the pool by type click here, we saw a small cluster of mushrooms. My brother seems to understand mushrooms and said that they are edible, but because I really like to throw a tantrum, I did not allow them to eat, and how a week later we found out that they were poisonous mushrooms that are very similar to ordinary ones. Therefore, even if you are 100% sure that they are edible, do not eat them in any case. Suddenly you made a mistake and it may cost you your life.

I used to eat wild mushrooms that looked OK to me. That were white with no red dangerous warnings. That looked like supermarket mushrooms. I was helping out in an extensive vegetable garden about 1989. I saw some very innocent looking mushrooms so ate a few.

After 5 hours I was vomiting and shitting out as much as possible. So what mushrooms I had eaten were semi-poisonous I guess. These mushrooms put me on a mild and enjoyable trip/ Right after the puking.

These reishi mushrooms were fine. Made tea of them, and dried some. Did a bit of research, but would've been even better to do a spore print and reference. Started with a sip of mild tea. Felt fine. Drank a little more, felt finer. Didn't get too crazy though. I'm convinced these are a lighter colored reishi. In the neighborhood, have seen some growing high up in a tree that has a large dead branch.

I agree, it is risky eating wild mushrooms. Sux to be wrong.

Let's go foraging Zands! There's gotta be better pickings out there

Happy to report passiflora nitida is finally fruiting as well. Both vines have been growing for years, hand pollinated, with no fruit. Only 1 plant of each. Seems they are compatible, or something else is finally pollinating them.

Now I'm not sure about "passiflora nitida"

Anyone with any insight and help identifying these, please share your thoughts...

These 2 pics are of the same flower, which was sold to me as passiflora nitida about 5 years ago.





These 2 pics are of the same flower from a passiflora laurifolia plant that I grew from seeds.





I am starting to think neither of these plants is p. nitida, and perhaps they both are p. laurifolia. There are some differences between the flowers and foliage, but still think its the same thing. Pics of p. nitida flowers show it with wavy filaments, which neither of my plant's flowers appear to exhibit.
Both the plant and the seeds were obtained around the same time, from Top Tropicals.

Is anyone growing p.laurifolia and/or p. nitida?

Rollinia tree is going off. Lots of fruits. No longer hand pollinating, happening naturally.

Lemon drop is producing well, despite being in almost complete shade.

Thanks TGT!

Rollinia tree was planted January 2016, and was a nice sized 5+ gallon tree at the time.

I've had to majorly top it, and needs another cutting now. About 9 - 10 feet now, with some taller stalks shooting up here and there. Nice umbrella like canopy has developed. Shady and fruity up underneath.

Sad to report, lost Buttercrotch; fruit only.

Found this Oro Negro lying on the ground the other day. 1st fruit that has made it this far. Squirrels hammer the fruits when immature. Covered this one with an organza bag, and somehow they left it alone.

<br />

Does this fruit look properly ripened?

Is your yangmai still alive rob?  Mine started to do its first flush in the ground.  It has not grown much at all but its starting to. Then we got a fire wind yesterday that probably cooked the new flush.

Hey Brad. How's it going in the Oasis?

Sad to share that I lost one of the Biqi. Had repotted meticulously into a rootsaver pot, and when I went to pick it up, the bottom fell out. Carefully put it all back together, and everything seemed okay for a few weeks. Then it died. Not sure what else could've happened.

Here is one of the other Biqi, in a rootsaver pot.


And here is the Biqi planted in ground, couple of months now or so.

You guys are still way ahead in nursing the yangmei along!

Is the Sichuan pepper the one with tongue numbing berries? Nice plant, if so how long does it take to produce?  Mapo Tofu time!

Hey Slopat.

Yes, Sichuan pepper is numbing, and does not really have much heat to it, maybe a little. I eat a sichuan chili sauce that is really good. Would love to experiment with it more.

I have 2 varieties. Will have to look up their scientific names. The one pictured grew through the pot and into the ground. Going to cut the pot away and build up a mound around the root ball and leave it be.

I'm not sure about flowers and fruits. Yet to see any. This is not scientific, but looks to me like its going to do something soon.

Found some more info:

I have Hua Jiao Shu sichuan pepper and Zanthoxylum Simulans. Z. Simulans is the one pictured is bigger than the other. Think they are different species.

One of the sellers said they can fruit within 2 to 3 years. Received both of these 2 years ago, November.
