Eugenia condolleana - Thanks for responses guys. I've found that a few of the sprouts I thought had rotted off have regrown from lower down the stem, so I have a few coming along okay now. My problem in retrospect was babying them too much - providing a heat source and high ..1273 days 22hrs
Eugenia condolleana - Anybody have any experience with sprouting these? Mine seem to have rotted at the tip after breaking the soil, even after I got them out of the humidity box I'd set up. Bummer as I only had a few. Rio grande and cambuca have come up okay in identical co..1301 days 21hrs
Papayuelo1 - Hi there Phil, Thanks for your kind offer. I'd like to give them a go as well. Am just down the road from you near Mullumbimby so they will be locally adapted... My email is fishriddle at hotmail dot com Many thanks, Al ..1438 days 18hrs
Banana identity - Hi Lijnat, If you ever come across some more seeds I might be up for a trade? Will that nana above grow much taller or does it stay stocky and bushy like that? It looks very tropical and lush. Can you eat the bananas from it or are they too seedy?..1537 days 17hrs
Thousand finger banana - I'm sure it would be closely guarded if it was here. What a display!! BTW the plantain you sent has come good after dying right down from the top damaged in the post. I thought it would continue to rot down to nothing but this stopped -there were still ..1538 days 1hrs
Blue java banana - They still look a bit angular to me, but I don't have Blue javas so maybe they are just like that. With Cav'c etc I have watched them until they seem to have stopped rounding out and those angles along the 'nanas soften as they fill upfrom the inside..1538 days 1hrs
Pawpaws - Anyone have any dwarf pawpaw seeds they'd be willing to share/trade/sell?Have had a look for the Taiwan Red Lady but doesn't seem much around besides in India and don't like my chances there. I have some good reds - from FF seed - but not sure yet i..1599 days 18hrs

Selling plants from your backyard - I too joined that forum and check in occasionally. While I applaud the initiative to create a non-commercially influenced forum, it seems that this one here has the 'market' pretty well covered. ..1620 days 23hrs
Banana2 - Have you ever got it to fruit John? and do you think its a Cav? That looks a bit stockier than the ones I've just seen...1620 days 23hrs
Banana2 - H all, Does anybody know if there the are so-called super dwarfs here? I have found a dwarf that looks like cavendish and the top of the highest leaves are about 4 foot tall. No idea of fruit quality but they have the typical cav. leaves. I also recentl..1621 days 1hrs
Musa banksii - Have a look at bananas.org Troy as they have had some in the past. Are they edible?..1622 days 1hrs
Taro black leafed - Could possibly be too much light, as red leaves are generally an adaptation to low light levels. You could try putting it out of the sun and see what happens?..1623 days 1hrs
Selling plants from your backyard - There are also local gardening clubs and community gardens that are great to take excess seedlings to for swapping. What I've seen on these forums is that many people are on the lookout for unusual stuff that Daley's don't stock. It is an excellent ..1623 days 1hrs
Help with plant spacing and position - I've got rocky 'fill' soil on much of my block too waterfall, put in before I got here to raise it up as my area is flood prone. Itv is yellow clay too so not very plant friendly. I do have plans for bringing in some soil, mixing it with old mulch a..1628 days 18hrs
