Hilo Buddha sugarcane - 1 gal
« on: September 22, 2022, 03:16:49 PM »
Greetings!

I have been growing and propagating Hilo Buddha sugarcane for several years now.  It is a beautiful variegated (striped) varietal with barrel-shaped nodes that originates from Papua New Guinea, but is now grown mostly in Hawaii.  It is considered an heirloom varietal to the best of my knowledge, though that term seems a bit subjective as far as sugarcane goes.  I've only ever seen rooted Hilo Buddha for sale on one website (sweetcanes.com); their sales window is usually very brief each year, and I haven't seen it in stock for quite some time.  I occasionally see cuttings available elsewhere, but never in stock.

I currently have 18 rooted 1 gal pots available for sale or trade, valued at $25 each.  The pots are about 2/3 filled with well-draining soil, and about a 1/2 inch of rice hulls in the bottom.  They all have multiple sprouts; each pot contains a 3-node section. Photo shows mature canes.  I can send pics of my pots if interested, and you can pick which one(s) you want; I'll snap a photo when inquiries are received.  I prefer to apply neem before shipping because they are currently growing outdoors.


Cheers,
Jon

It would be a lot cheaper to just send a couple cuttings.

Do you think these would ship ok in the 30 degree weather? I'm interested if yes. Otherwise I have to wait till it warms up again.

One would normally run about $20, three would be $25 (flat rate USPS Priority Medium vs Large).  Right now its pretty cold and I would need to add heat packs, expedite shipping, or possibly both based on destination and weather forecast.  I just repotted everything and moved em inside for the winter, so theyll need some time to root.  If we get a patch of warm weather in two weeks Id ship one then, but it seems unlikely to me; probably best to wait till spring at this point.
