Taylor , try watering your Stuttgart with Tomato fert , it has high Magnesium and this helps stop the leaves from burning. Also Stuttgart can revert to green , mine did this in it's third growing season.

I just read yesterday something about Epsom Salts doing the trick as they have Magnesium too? Ill try that soon, or the tomato fert. Also, why would it revert to full green? Did it stay that way forever? Mine is almost too white for me.

Taylor, I never used the Epsom salts so don't know if they work , they are said to work.
I like the Mirical Grow soluble fert and three month slow release Tomato fert.
I don'r know why they revert , but expert less white next year. Plus if they revert how do the suppiliers keep the supply coming ? There must be a way to stop them reverting to green, perhaps a small division of this years Stuttgart will always be white but when you have it in the ground for a few years the rhizome mass some how a equals green plant. I guess take a small two or three eye division to be safe.

I might use Epsom salt. Also, I will have to look into this. I might dig a piece up then this year and maybe the dormancy and dryness will cause it to stay white. I don't know if it'll make a difference if I did that instead of leaving it in the ground. Well see. Has anyone else had this problem? Maybe it was a freak thing at random.

Jeff Earl has listed another Cal Gold
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=290143732447

I will bid on it again if it doesn't get a bid before the last day. If anyone from here is bidding, let me know so I don't increase your cost (too badly!).

Why not bid on this one? The large plant Joe Real gave me a couple of months ago now has a couple of pups but I don't expect to have any to spare for 2-3 years with my own growing plans and gifts for some family members, etc. I also plan to grow some to donate to a charity to include in their auction since I think they will bring some good money with this group. My eBay ID is the same as here so it is easy to tell if I'm bidding. Let me know if you bid and I won't place a bid. Otherwise, I won't let it pass by for less than $40 or so. Jeff sold pups up until late August or so last year.

Well, it may be the most over-rated by some but is also under-rated by some others such as yourself. My Dwarf Orinoco did not survive the 20F we had in January but the Cal Gold, which came from Joe Real, survived fine with the same temps. Your experiences are different and your climate is different. People have grown California Gold in the Central Valley of California and found it to grow and fruit more reliably than Dwarf Orinoco. I have fruit on my California Gold right now but have never got my Dwarf Orinoco to fruit, though it probably would have it it wasn't quite so cold this past January. Your experiences may be different, but that does not make others wrong in wanting to grow California Gold. If you don't think they're worth it, don't bother buying one. This was argued in a different thread previously with unproductive results. The bottom line is that a California Gold tastes tons better than something that doesn't fruit at all.

My bottom line is that Jeff has good advertising. People buy it because of his good advertising. People like the plant. He likes the money. Its a win-win unless it dies in winter. (someone bought one and they live in Alaska????!) Oh well the person is happy and so if Jeff. Im happy with mine from Gabe.

I don't defend Jeff or think he needs defending. I bought from him for a few reasons .
I don't have 'California Gold' and I wanted the real McCoy.I get real tired of not receiving what I ordered and ending up with mystery Musa.
I get real tired of bad divisions (I've only had good ones this year,thanks guys) that take months to restart or die. Jeffs plants are great divisions and are forming new leaves and rollers right now. I don't care if the taste is not top, I live in Maryland , just getting fruit would be cool. Jeff gives good service and good email.
A 100 bucks is not a lot for a rare plant, I've payed 300 for a three foot hardy Palm Tree in the past and I was getting a good deal on that plant.I grow Tree Ferns in my garden in Europe and one of my big ones would go for Lord knows what price here as you cannot get a 4 foot tall Dicksonia antarctica for love nor money as they say.
My only Hobby is the plants , it's a Hobby , people enjoy there Hobbies and spend money on them for pleasure. They generally could not care less if people think they are wasting there money because it's there's to waste and it gives pleasure.
So here is a guy who is Happy to have 'California Gold' whatever it costs because I enjoy having 'California Gold' and look forward to passing on the pleasure to other Plantsmen.

Hi Chong , Plantsman/Plantswoman in English English would denote an expert in Plants with a passion for the subject. To be correct I could use Plantsman/Plantswoman or Plantsperson. Planter would be in US terms a container to put plants in , in English terms it would be a person who plants.
I think that's all correct, I speak UK English and Canadian English and I'm working on US English
Best Wishes

My Stuttgart has never changed in the 3 years I've had it. This year it's getting way more sun because I removed a 6 foot tall fence that used to provide shade for it. I have noticed that the new shoots that grow up in the full sun seem to last longer before burning. Also some of the leaves are mostly green, some are variegated with cream colors, some are variegated with bright white, and some are totally white. I have them in the same bed as some bananas so they get the same organic food with tons of Sul Po Mag so maybe that's keeping them from burning too much. They receive full sun from about 9am to 3 pm. I also keep them heavily watered every day. This year I'm starting to get blooms at 6 feet tall instead of 10-12 feet like last year. I believe the plants were stretching to get more sun.

Jorden (jnstropic) uses potassium nitrate to suppress the white on his young AE AE pups to give them a growth boost. Read about it here.

In my post, you will notice that the P in Planter is underscored, like it is now. That was to emphasize that the letter was in the upper case, in order to make the word a proper noun, and indicate that it was a person as distinguished from a pot, in US terms.

It's like, before, everyone who presided on a meeting, council, or group was called a "chairman", regardless of gender. Now, it has evolved from chairman/chairwoman to chairperson to just simply "chair". But then, of all places, in Hollywood, everyone now who is acting is called "actor" regardless of gender. What happened to the actresses? Hmmmm, I wonder if we should just call all those airline attendants just simply "stewards"????

I am fascinated as to why we are even discussing these because, as a person who has English as his fourth language, the rules keep changing, in my view, just for the sake of argument. How far do we bring this to? For example in the Bible, where statements containing "man" refers to "mankind" or the "human race". Even the words referred to contain "man". Shall we eventually replace "man" with "persons"? And what about the word "woman"????

I wish that we were back when "Plantsman" referred to the person who is an expert in plants. I know for one, that that was who Steve was referring to. I also know that Kylie was just poking fun at the current "PCness" situation.

Chong , everthing you say is correct. As a member of the British Theatre I only say Actor as a habit. Back in the early 80's there was real pressure from the females in the Company to be correct , which is fine , but it does keep one on ones toes. I'm a Dyslexic person so I often don't express myself well with the written word. Well done with four languages , I speak only English and some French. My kids are Bi-lingual in French and English and my wife also has German , so I'm the Dummy around here :-) . What confuses me often is that Americans pronounce the Latin names of plants in very different way to the way it's done in the UK . Luckly 'California Gold' is pronounced the same way but with a different accent in the UK lol .
All the best
Steve
