Lychee - Wai Chee (Cutting) 5/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 1781 days 9hrs

Comments: - Extremely slow growing and very sensitive to fertiliser and water, I made the mistake of fertilising it and it never fully recovered.  Do not use fertiliser on the plant for the first few years as they have there own store of nutrients (I learnt that the hard way).  It is still alive though and growing, there are no large growth spurts like most trees though so you will have to be very patient.

Dwarf Apple - Pink Lady (Grafted) 9/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 1781 days 9hrs

Comments: - To my amazement this plant flowered and has a nice amount of apples nearly ready to harvest, we had a warm winter last year so it appears this plant is suitable for Brisbane conditions - will see if it flowers again this year.  I am growing this one in a 50cm pot and give it a nice prune each winter.

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 1781 days 9hrs

Vanilla Vine (Cutting) 9/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 1781 days 9hrs

Comments: - This guy has grown so quickly and is loving it's shady humid area, no flowers yet.  It is growing well in a pot under a patio and I have just had 6 successful cuttings take root and form new leaves from this main plant.  If you have somewhere to dark for another plant to grow then give this one a try.
