Very pleased Kevin! Really nice Thai dwarf plants that are covered in fruit and cuttings that should root readily. Thanks Kevin!

I had it in early December. Ivermectin (horse paste) knocked it back. Never got bad. D

I didn't realize these could be grown from cuttings. Do they root easily? Thanks

As I remember one of them is eryobotria elliptica? I think they grow in the Himalayan foothills. D

There are some good threads about Spring blooming loquats. Just search for them. There is good evidence of Himalayan types that Spring bloom, but I don't think they have been imported. D

Impressive. I'll try that. We are just now dipping into the 50s and will warm back up. Hoping they will stay on the vine another month. Thanks! D

Hello, Do you mean Monterrey oak? If so, there is a post office near Richmond and beltway 8 that has a bunch of them that have acorns all around them right now. D

Hi Derek, I can send you fish mint and ashitaba plants or cuttings. Maybe I'd have better success with kratom seeds than I did with cuttings. D

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Artichoke vs cardoon
« on: October 17, 2021, 07:01:01 AM »
Artichoke are commonly grown for their flowers and I've read that cardoons are grown for their stalks. Are cardoons just artichokes that don't bloom or make inferior flowers? Are artichoke stalks edible like cardoons? Thanks, D

Catalpas grow fine around Houston as well, although they might be a different variety.

I didn't even consider that there might be "improved" chilipetins. Some call them chilipequins (pekane). Here they start fruiting about May and they stop with frost. They literally grow where a bird poops seeds, so they are everywhere. Our bad freeze last Winter - about -18C killed them to the ground, but they regrew and were fruiting about 3 months later.
I hope you never find a rattler in one of your chilis! D

Hi Vincent, You may not get enough heat for them. They grow wild in Southern Texas. Typically under a larger plant or tree, because I think they germinate the best after passing through a bird's gut. They grow here in somewhat alkaline soil and are pretty drought tolerant. If you give them a little fertilizer they grow pretty large. Sometime we find young rattlers hunting in them....although that shouldn't be a problem for you😁. Dan

Hi Derek! I'll take some. We had discussed smooth sumac suckers a while back. I still want some starts. When do you think they will be ready? D

Thanks for the info. I only need 3 or 4 months. Some of these bulbils are getting really big. They should have enough energy to store for a relatively long time. Regards, D

Got my seedlings yesterday! Beautiful little guys. Thanks so much Eloicious! D

Thanks. Maybe this will be a mild Winter and it won't matter. After last year's freeze we need a mild Winter....Dan

Thanks to several kind forum members, I have some very happy dioscorias growing and making bulbils that I need to think about over Wintering. How do you folks store them? Thanks, Dan

Hi Julie, I generally expect viable seed to sink, and these all floated. I soaked them and the put them in soil. They will either sprout or not. I was just curious. D

Should Rollinia seeds float? Mine did. I planted them, but don't have much hope for them. D

How will the auction work? I assume online? I'd like to participate. D
