Although I'm not on the Sunshine Coast, my seedlings are doing well enough a lot further south. They are pretty slow to establish, as are all the Garcinia sp. but I have some promising new growth this season on my specimens which are planted in the ground. I'm sure they'd do even better where you are.

Hey Mike am desperate to get seeds of the casabanana again, let me know what you think of the flavour of the fruit. I had a vine get to flowering stage but it died in one of the coldest winters. It is supposed to be perennial but it never reshot. I'm sure I could do better next time

Mike, I can donate an Achacha or two if you don't have any. They are around two yo.
All those gingers you sent over the past year/s are doing exceptionally well.

Heya John I have been rolling in achacha fruit and seeds and didn't want to plant them.I have stumbled across some other garcinias like luc's mexican,sweet and common madrono,G.brasiliensis,prainiana and more.They are the species I am keen on now I just need space.
I am glad some of the plants from the north survived.

Thanks again Jantina, fingers crossed these will do ok. I'll plant them earlier this time - as soon as the weather warms up in early spring.

ip they are pretty slow as are others I have in pots like madrono, intermedia, gardneriana, macrophylla and others.They speed up with age.I planted a couple in the ground too early without shelter and they are half scorched.

They are really slow to start.
Got the seeds in April, 1/3 are over 5cm, 1/3 are just popping up and the last 5 are just laying there.
Hopefully they'll start soon.

I was probably the first to get seeds. My biggest are only in fifth leaf stage. They are among the slowest growers, but supposedly do eventually pick up speed after three or so years...
