Mimosa Hostilis

small M. hostilis

12152010319.jpg
over 5 feet tall Mimosa - about 10 months

12152010320.jpg
Trunk size - base

Will plan to grow them in big containers until i can get some land. I think i'll plant the smaller mimosa on some local park. It'll be our little secret :D This tree is quite hardy! I think it can survive on it's own easy.


Acacia Maidenni
12152010321.jpg
Tall plant!

12152010322.jpg
Trunk Base

After repotting to bigger container it grew like mad. It's probably 7-8 feet tall? Can't wait for it to flower :D Very cool tree, i think i'm the only one in our country who has this Acacia specie. :D

Okay 4 years to go before the Ayahuasca experience. If i don't manage to grow Salvia at least i have these lovely plants.

others to show you:

Synsepalum Dulcificum

small miracle fruit - A

small miracle fruit - B

Small TREE

12152010326.jpg
one of the flower buds. hopefully it'll fruit

Nabbed the big one on our local nursery. Let's just say that the two cuttings i got from thailand are more expensive than the 2 feet tall plus plant i got. Funny how life works.

I had a total of 1 small fruit and it didn't have any effect when i tried to taste vinegar. I screwed up the rest of the fruiting cycle by using uneven fertilizer(concentrated to flower).
This time i used osmocote 20-20-20 slow release fertilizer and it's doing great so far. Just have to wait for it to fruit and be patient.

I plan to give them away. Are those germinated seeds as tough as small cuttings? The Miracle Fruit A & B pictured above took 3 weeks to arrive from Thailand to Philippines and it didn't even had a hiccup!!!

i received mine like that . They( around 20 seeds) were covered in moist coconutfiber already germinated, everything in a small plastic sealed bag. The protection or insulation was some shredded paper and a cardboard and the envelope.

they use Gibberellic Acid to germinate them , otherwise it will not work.

I bought the first 20 normal seeds( with no gibberellic acid applied on ) and all died.

Maybe 500PPM GA3 will do the trick. These plants are quite hardy, no wonder they survived being shipped in such an early age.

You should try growing Goji Berry! I think it's abundant in your region.

Blackstrap molasses + Apple Cider Vinegar does help. About 1tbsp per gallon is sexy.

That's how they look ulmy. After 1 year of growing them, they are finally branching out. I'm still a year away from my first harvest

Baybean

Germinated in 4 days. 1 for 1. Should be fast growing climber.



03032011687.jpg
Jatropha Curcas

It's called Physic Nut but it contains cyanide. Weird.
Locals say leaves are used to treat sprains. Grew this one straight from a hardwood cutting with no leaves.
It's half a year old. Had to wait 2-3 months for it to root directly in soil. Cool Plant

The cotyledon is literally the bean itself. It's the same as Soybeans.. Pretty cool :D
If you think that's big then wait till you see a germinated African Dream Bean
Here's a preview:

I finally understand why the piranha plants from Super Mario Bros. look the way they do. Also, damn, that's a big bean!
