Any word on condition of the plants?

just asked again - "still alive". I sure hope so!

Green is a good sign!

Hopefully they can mist them with water, not just pesticide.

I just sent pickup direction for tomorrow (Wednesday) via email.

The plants are in good shape. They are more or less the same.

Wonderful news Ken! Great job in pulling this off. Very kind of you. Will be exciting to see what these trees do.

Picked up my trees last night. These are bunch better quality than the previous group buy that was done years back. I grabbed random plants from the barrels and when potting them up I noticed that half of them already had new roots starting to grow out!

Excellent work Ken, and thanks for everything you put into it

Cheers,
Richard

Should we start a separate post aboit the journey and techniques to keeping these trees alive.

Is a shaded greenhouse a good idea? Are night time lows still too cold?

I am also very happy with the quality of the trees. These should start pushing new root growth with a little TLC.

In the meantime, here is the main reference Iím using for how to care for these trees. Itís a study done by the Australian government back in Ď05. https://www.agrifutures.com.au/wp-content/uploads/publications/05-081.pdf

Also interesting is another study on stimulating root growth in cuttings for these https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/6663/40c9389598dead45f186ef42a56dcab8d312.pdf?_ga=2.215529879.1491570547.1619585891-2061660700.1619585891

I soaked mine for an hour in a mix of water, FF boomerang, superthrive (for the NAA), and takeroot (For the IBA, see above article). They were then transplanted to a peat/sand/pumice based medium in the shade with a vented humidity dome (trash bag, ha!)

Iím excited to hear everyoneís progress!

Hi guys, I am very happy for all of you,you have done a great job! I followed this topic and held my fists so that you could succeed. Now just grow it and remember what path was passed!
In the south of Russia, Myrica Rubra grows and I can collect seeds in the fall,if someone is interested in it, I prefer to exchange rather than sell. Good luck to everyone!  8)

On ScottR's suggestion, I searched the forum earlier and found the neat thread about a previous Yangmei GB and lessons learned!

Here's a picture of the bare-root trees for those inquiring. Thanks again, Ken - you the man!

Thank you so much for all the hard work Ken!

I know you are trying to get the seller to cover some of the additional costs but please let us know if it doesnít work out. I know you had to pay a lot extra for the fumigation, transportation and inspections. Several members approached me and said they wanted to chip in.

I think itís most fair to split the additional costs if you canít get the seller to pay.

I donít want to be a downer but all my trees are lacking leaves except for my Biqi. The other varieties do have some green branches and what appears to be the beginnings of buds so this is a good sign.

Iíve re read all the information and it appears that using good quality rain/RO water is very important and keeping the plants out of direct sunlight is a must. Increasing the humidity is extremely important and if we are so lucky enough to get these trees to push new growth, the trees should still be kept out of direct sun until the root mass is very large and even then, shade cloth may be required in hotter or drier climates.

Thanks guys for the kind words - it means a lot to me. At a few occasions I regretted doing it since I hit one issue after another and I wondered if I will ever see the plants, or if the plants will be still alive after arrival.

As to the cost, hopefully I will settle with the seller since the extra cost was due to his fault.

A member decided not to keep the plants so I have some leftovers. For original group buyers, the price is still $55 each. For new buyers, please refer to the price below (as lots of risks are now removed and trees are in good shape)

Dongkui: 1 left. $55 each. they come with less roots compared but are still alive.
Black Peak: 2 left. $65 each
An Hai: 6 left. $75 each
Biqi: all gone!

Minimum two trees per order. First come first serve. Please send payment ($55/tree) to beicadad4533@gmail.com via Paypal and use friends and family option, Please include your forum username with the payment

Hello -
I've just now forwarded payment for (1) Dongkui and (1) Black Peak. One small detail that I overlooked in my Paypal note - my user name info to correlate with my order. Here it is:

Chris Coughlin - AKA Pedroboy
surfshaq@gmail.com - in case the PM system is still hit/miss.

I saw in the ongoing correspondence for the trees that Nate ('Nattyfrootz') was handling the Norcal group pickup.

LMK if there are any changes/problems - I do have Nate's contact info for followup

Sorry for the misunderstanding - I wasn't sure when the Bay Area pickup was taking place.
I don't wish to complicate things, but if any LA based buyers come forward for the remainder of your trees, is there any chance you could still honor my purchase and I could connect with that third party - maybe in a week's time? I have family in South Bay LA and could probably make the trip within a week. Just a thought - no worries if that can't happen.

Thanks again,
Chris

Indeed, huge thanks to Ken for being so kind to arrange this for all of us. The trees looked healthy and I think we'll all have success here. Mine are in the greenhouse in a shady spot and I keep spraying it down with water every few hours to keep humidity up.

Really nice to meet everyone I did through this group buy and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's trees thrive.
