Would be nice if all 4 varieties can be saved and shared. Glad to hear about BP FruitKid!

Hereís a quick update of my An Hai. Itís doing a little better than my Biqi and it has longer leaves. The largest leaves are about 1.5 inches long and it seems to be growing more vigorously than the Biqi even though this variety didnít have any leaves on it and the Biqi did.

Simon they are growing like crazy.  Looks like they will be ready to plant really soon.  Did you try acclimating them to outside at all yet?

I give it a little bit of indirect sun everyday but not in or around noon. I usually give it early morning or late evening sun do that it doesnít burn.

It gets a little bit of direct sunlight because I put it under my palm tree and when the wind blows, the leaves move, giving it some direct sun but only for a few seconds before the leaf shades it again.

Hereís an update on my Black Peak. Some buds are finally swelling and I see the first buds starting to pop. Itís got a long way to go before it catches up with the An Hai and Biqi but Iím super happy there are signs of life.

Iíve still only watered twice and I probably wonít need to water again for at least several days. Itís been cloudy the last week and Iíve been able to give my trees a lot more indirect sun. Itís been super cloudy but bright and the humidity has been relatively high so my plants seem to be loving it.

Here are a few pictures of the buds on my Black Peak.







Most of the branches are dead but thereís a few that have some green on them.

Lovely Simon!

Is anyone having luck with Dongkui?

Lovely Simon!

Rob, out of the four varieties, Dongkui is the variety Iím least concerned about because Fang has a good sized tree that is established.

I am also curious if anyone has a Donkui that has green buds or wood on it?

Thanks Itay!

It was cloudy yesterday so I brought my Yangmei plants under my Palm tree as I always do but the sun came out and the shadow of my palm tree moved and my plants were exposed to full sun for maybe 15-30 minutes before I moved them under the shade again. There is now a slight bronze color on some of the leaves.

Only part of the leaves got affected because the shadow of my palm tree was still shading part of the trees.

When you give your trees light, be careful not to give it too much direct light.

I previously mentioned that Marta advised not to put your Yangmei plants under the canopy of larger trees but I doing it because I fogged my trees to kill any pests.

All of my trees are still showing green wood including my two dongkui but they look pretty much the same as i got them. Only one of my  An Hai is showing green buds. I just moved them to 75% shade from full shade and hoping to see a little spark.

Mine are all about the same, minus the chopping of dying scion back smaller and smaller. My AnHai is in the best shape so far. I moved Biqi and Dongkui indoors onto a heat mat and I think the Dongkui is finally about to pop out a bud. AnHai and black peak are still in the greenhouse in the shadiest area and not really doing anything. None of them are, but at least they aren't dead. I'm really tempted to give them a light liquid N and micronutrient fert... But will hold off some more.

In the same situation. Haha. Iím jealous of simons growth but from fangs post it seems like these guys need a long time to heal. None of mine were fortunate enough to have white root hairs or as many branched as simons so Iím keeping mine wrapped in wax tape and going with the hope and pray method.

My thoughts are that the shorter the duration was from Ken's place to the pot they live in now, the higher likelihood they are to thrive. Simon also is evidently the SoCal king of roots / plants, so, there is also that. I have hopes mine will survive. I am at least fairly certain the rootstocks will all survive.

Thatís great news, green wood at this point is an excellent sign. Hopefully it will push soon. Please keep us updated!

I watered with a very diluted fertilizer solution on the second watering. I made sure it was low in Phosphorus. I saw increased growth after the fertilizer application but be very careful about over fertilizing.

Happy yangmei dad today. Up potted one An Hai that is green wood but no buds swelling and just green wood. When I up potted I saw Beautiful white roots forming and growing. My other An Hai is swelling with buds.

Hi Joe, great job! Iíd rather have nice root growth over buds right now. Iím glad that Your method is working nicely.

Thanks! Hereís a picture of the green wood. Not very big but holding on! The other pic is my other An hai. Itís starting to bud but not checking roots. All my others are green but look dormant. Having roots show gives me hope.

This doesnít seem to be true for me :). Most of you guys are doing better than me. My dongkui is dead above the graft, black peak and an Hai are alive but no obvious buds yet. Biqi is growing some leaves.

Curious to hear where you guys plan on planting your trees once the time comes? I guess it depends on your location...I read it grows in forest and mountain areas in its natural habitat between around 300-5,000ft in elevation so Iím thinking full time partial shade and not full sun would make a good, permanent home for them. Any thoughts? Update on my trees: Biqi is pushing nice green growth, albeit very slowly, and my An Hai grafted onto m. Californica has pushed a couple green buds through the graft tape.

Wonder if it would produce more fruit in full sun or partial...

It's pretty rainy and often cloudy where the Yangmei trees are grown. It's pretty humid there too. My guess is that partial sun is excellent for them.
