Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / wanted : Piper Nigrum
« on: August 09, 2021, 01:50:22 PM »
I have tried growing with seeds bought on Bay, NO luck or they were not fresh enough.
Anyone willing to sell me a cutting or throw me some fresh seeds?
I can easily email prepaid postage that you just print and tape on the package.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Can I prune my indoor Cacao tree?
« on: July 18, 2021, 08:42:32 AM »
Grew from seed bought on Ebay, 3 out of 6 seeds germinated and only this one survived.  About 4-5 years old.  Living in zone 7a it is an indoor plant (i used to put it outside in the summer under canopy of bigger trees but it loves the heat of an attic bathroom closed off from the rest of the house.   In the winter its in my living room with the heat at 68 degrees daytime 60 night (I am frugal with heating costs).  It stays green in winter but no new growth.  Spring/summer it shoots up about 6" a year.  I would like a more compact shorter tree - can I drastically prune it - like half way?  And I would assume any pruning would be in the spring?   I have a Hass Avocado plant grown from grocery store fruit that I drastically pruned that put out side branches and filled out - but prob. will never get fruit so there was no risk.

I know the pot looks too small but I have checked and the root ball is small.
