Here are the smaller Camu camu plants I have. Quart size.


The poppa daddies.

K-Rimes:
I have been thinking about buying one from you. How old are the big ones vs small ones? How long till small ones fruit?

Thanks!

The small ones are actually from the big ones nearly 1 year ago. So technically according to our research they could fruit within a year or so. The big ones are of fruiting age already and are our crop supporters. Let me know if this helps or if you have any other questions.

is there something super special about their care one would need to keep it happy? while i want a camu camu it would be more of a novelty companion plant for my acerola and guava im planning to forest in the back yard, im collecting vitamin c plants, so im still flip flopping on if i want to get a grown plant or invest in a bunch of seeds and hope some succeed, but im afraid to invest in what i can tell so far is an already difficult plant to keep and immediately lose it because i totally miss understood its needs.


my understanding is mostly keeping the soil moist. i was just gonna use some standard high peat potting soil in a fabric pot sitting in a water tray that's kept filled.

I answer some of that here: https://tropicalfruitforum.com/Themes/default/images/topic/my_normal_post.gif

Instead of peat I use pine bark to give it some filtration.
