GIANT LAU LAU

    26 responses

joyb2002 starts with ...
Hi I am wondering if anyone can tell me when the Giant Lau Lau flowers and how old the tree needs to be. I bought one here in 2010. Its growing well. Do you prune them and how do you fertilise? I have found it hard to get any information.

Strong winds have blown over the biggest shoot of the LAu-Lau .. do not think it will ever regain its past grand stature .

Mike from Cairns here.
I have a need....a need for seed.
If anyone can supply me with some giant lau lau seeds they will be handsomely rewarded with fruit seeds and small plants of quality that other people don't have.

Mister Mike, there's plenty of plants here in Melbourne. But only plants and not seeds if that's what is needed. Later.

Mike,

I just bought a lau lau. It cost me a bit, but I might be willing to trade for some very special dragonfruit cuttings....

I can't seem to find any lau lau seeds for sale online--yet. If I do, I'll pick them up and send them your way.

sternus 1 I am only after seeds and can swap dragonfruit cuttings of the finest named hybrids for them (google Matt's landscapes or PIN collections).I can sweeten the pot with small plants of jabaticaba and Eugenia species and others not availbale elsewhere.

I'll do what I can Mike, would love some of matt's dragons (especially makisupa). I'll hit the net properly tonight, see what I can come up with. I have one contact who will sell them to me if he has any, the issue is if he does. How many are you after--or just as many as I can get?

Update: I have sent out three...birds. We'll see what they come back with.

cheers

Sounds good mike. I'm trying my best....should know by tomorrow, I've incentivised the best chance seller as heavily as I can.

Sure am having more trouble than I anticipated getting them, which is weird since there are so many plants around the traps.

I've read that lau lau seeds aren't viable very long--how long before they become duds?

Also, if you can give me the proper scientific name, this will help--I don't want to send you mountain apple or wax jambu seeds. I like to be sure.

If you need to reach me outside of this forum drop me a message at ljo84 at hushmail dot com

sternus 1 It is Syzygium megacarpum and a native of New Guinea and parts of SE Asia.It used to be in Eugenia.In a slightly moistened medium (eg peat moss,vermiculite,perlite,sphagnum,tissue etc) in clip lock bag (with a few fine holes) seed viability can be extended beyond 30 days.

Ok, now it makes sense, because I kept pinging it as a Eugenia. I have now sent out five birds. So fresh is best, naturally...thirty days is a small window. The seeds, if they eventuate, will probably be Hawaiian
(thats if option A is bust) whether that is a positive or a negative I've no idea.

Just as well you found some JCS, because here is what I was turning up:

Doodley squat. Couldn't find anybody that had seeds, all were trees.

Sorry I couldn't help you out Mike, but all's well that ends well.

TFW will have some in a few weeks. Their trees are in flower now. You can ask them for fruit and seeds, as it's not something they'd usually stock in the shop.

I'd love another one, but need to start thinking about space...I just put in a white jambu and a pink one, as well as dwarf mulberry. Looks like I'll have to start expanding into the back paddock...no water down there though.

The nursery you recommended had one, and I put in an order but never got around to paying as I lost the details when I lost my email. Was majorly bummed about it, feel pretty bad for giving the nursery the run around. I don't dare re approach them about it :/

I think my szygium collection will be limited to pillys and Jambus for the forseeable future. Jambu is a stunning tree, I'd like a red one to complete set.
