She's not old enough to have fruited yet but she is a lovely vine - smooth stems and much smaller leaves than the normal male.

WINTER 2010: dry weather had set in, I wasn't getting home early enough to water and she was regularly suffering from dehydration. Being that it was nearly time to prune her I pruned her before she lost all her leaves to stop her drying out but it got rainy a few days later and her wounds got infected with some feral slimey mould. At first I thought a kookaburra has been pooing on her. I brought her inside, cut the sick bit back and cleaned the wound with 70% EtOH which didn't work.

I tried garlic and commercial fungicides (begrudgingly) but they had no effect either. I got desperate and figured that if I had a manky wound I would use Detol on myself. I soaked a cottonball and left it on the wound for a fortnight. The ooze dried up and then when spring came she was right as rain! So pleased!

LESSON: use bitumen to seal wounds and do not assume that dry weather will hold!

Spring 2011: we have our first flower buds!!! The boy doesn't seem to be wanting to play though and has only just started getting leave let alone flowers. He has ONE PURPOSE in life so he had better get a riggle on otherwise I will get another boy for her! Grrr!

Summer 2011: Nope. He didn't perform. GR GR GR GR GRRRR!!!!

The male is not 'performing' because it is probably a regular high chill Matui or Tomuri. Get a low chill male from Forbidden Fruits or Daleys when available.

Thanks for the tip! :) Ends up that he might be dead - I found a great big ant nest in the pot!
