I have seen artificial flowers that grow faster than this. I think it's dead but it doesn't know it.

Winter 2011: Again coming up from collected seeds. These have taken 2 months to germinate so be patient. We are not sure if all 3 babies will survive - the one in the top of the image looked like it might have gotten mouldy but there is still a little bit of green clinging in there.


We now have 6 seedlings. The one that got mouldy seems to have died but the others are looking really strong. My friend took some and I have some so between us we should be able to keep one alive!


Summer 2011: One of the seedlings had conjoined leaves. It stayed green but couldn't grow any adult leaves because the cotyledons were stuck together across the growing tip. I carefully peeled them apart and there are new leaves coming!! :O)


Planted: 2011

Plant is rather slow growing at present still only young and our one seemed to take a while to anchor itself in the ground. Root mass small compared to size of plant.

hi just wondering how it is growing now has it fruited yet
ManishU says... [2163 days 18hrs ago]
No, i dont think it will fruit this season :( It has grown a bit with some new leaves here and there; but to me it still looks sparse. I wonder if i need to fertilise it ?
mrswarren1 says... [2163 days 7hrs ago]
yeah some fertilizer would do it good
ManishU says... [2162 days 1hrs ago]
what fertiliser would you recommend? I regularly provide all my trees with seasol. And use blood and bone once in 6 months. Do i need to do more ?
