Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for Salacca wallachiana PLANTS!
« on: November 23, 2021, 09:45:25 PM »
I am looking for Salacca wallachiana plants, preferably the variety called "sala sumalee". I did get some seeds but none of them sprouted. I think there is a  very short viability window. Let me know if you have plants for sale or know where to purchase them. Or if anyone can ship fresh seeds quickly to U.S. that could work as well.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Snake fruit pollination question
« on: October 28, 2021, 01:42:36 PM »
I have a young snake fruit plant - red Bali salak which is both male and female flowers on the same tree. I am interested in other varieties of snake fruit... Can my red Bali salak pollinate other varieties assuming flowering happens at the same time? One variety I have seen available is Salak Pondoh. I believe they are both varieties of Salacca Salacca. And then also does anyone know, if in fact different varieties can pollinate each other, would the seeds be a cross?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Planting Miracle fruit tree - help!
« on: June 20, 2020, 05:37:46 PM »
We have had two small miracle fruit trees for several years. They are very picky about soil and type of water. I have read they need acidic soil. In a pot we use half perlite and half peat moss and only use rain water, and an acid base fertilizer (sparingly).

Here in central Florida we have sandy soil (aka pure sand). It is alkaline apparently. The first time we planted the miracle fruit tree straight into the ground (adding a lot of peat moss to surrounding area) it lost all its leaves... We dug it up and put it into a pot. Much happier! Now both the trees have been transplanted into big pots. They were happy but now are root bound, leaves less green and not producing berries. I can't get pots any bigger.

I was thinking of making a square raised bed maybe 1 to 2 feet tall with the soil mixture they like and let them grow into the ground...
