Re: Rooting hardwood cuttings
I've been looking into sources for scionwood cuttings for rare plants myself, and was wondering how long cuttings would remain viable en route. These cuttings you just received, where are they from and how long did they get to you from the time they were cut from the plant, do you think? And since some of the plants I would be interested in may also be propagated by rooting cuttings, I could use the cuttings to root outright, or use them for grafting. The thing I'm afraid of is that they may dry out in transit if it takes too long to get here. Some sources are in Thailand, and some are in Guam.
And since you appear to have done some "importing" (domestically) of cuttings, do you know of any sources where I can get/buy rare fruit cuttings for grafting and/or rooting? Plants like Malay apple, wax jambu, lansones, seedless sugar apple, sweet guanabana, mamey sapote, ylang-ylang, etc.
(Do you pay that inspector anything "under the table" so he/she will take it easy on you?)
Thanks for any feedback.
