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

Hi Folks, looking for seeds or starts of this plant. Thanks, D

Any news on the tribute garden?

Put me on the list for bamboo. I've been wanting a start of timber bamboo. Lots of projects to do!

Derek's cuttings, plants and seeds have always been top quality for me. We have been trading material for a couple of years and I've always had good success, including kratom cuttings. D

Let me know when the direct link is working. I'll certainly help with this. Andreas was on track to having a prosperous, fulfilling life. What a loss for all of us. D

Mine is fruiting now also. I can send seeds if you still need them in a month or so. D

I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Andreas in early June. I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and I can say that he was a really good guy with a passion for his plants. He kept his plants healthy enough that he had some things that we don't consider cold hardy at all that came back from their roots after our 12ish degree multi day freeze. I was impressed.
I will miss him. Elouicious....keep me informed re the botanical tribute. I think that is very appropriate. I will be of help with it. D

Then I guess I'll have to try the greens! Thanks, D

Thanks Spencer. That's a lot of good info. Is there any nutrition left after such a long cook time? I tend to think the ones I have are just for tubers. I'll probably just use them that way, but watch for other varieties. D

How do you tell which varieties of taro are for greens and which are for the tubers? I bought some small tubers at the grocery store a couple of years ago and have a bunch of plants now. I assume these are not for greens based on how they were sold, but how would I know without risking a thousand needles in my throat? Thanks, D

Mine is still small. It is a root sucker from a tree that is in roughly zone 6. I intend to plant it out this coming Fall. My trees suffer from the Summer heat more than a normal Winter. Regards, Dan

They should be fine. I was given root suckers from a tree planted outside without protection in Illinois. D

Rain water is awesome for your plants. It has all kinds of ion exchange and polarity wizardry going on. Use it to make compost tea as well! D

Thanks y'all. Got it on order. D

Will these root? Thanks, D

I don't know Rodney. Never had it before. If you have some you like I'd certainly or trade for some. Regards, Dan

Anyone have this to trade or sell?
Thanks, Dan
