No, but I've been at the potting bench all day. I'll be seeing containers and mix in my sleep.

Jiggle the handle.
Hit it with a hammer.
Reboot the flux capacitor.
If none of these work, read the directions.

Two days ago, I potted up a California Gold pup that I stored bare-root in the workshop all winter. We'll see how it does.

Potted up 2 pups from a Thai mini cultivar. I gave a pup to a friend and got 2 back! Good deal, rite?

I don't know what this is cos I got it as a tiny TC plant from Bkk about 2 years ago. I gave 1 to my brother who grew it to fruiting. The fruits were really small like the size of the index finger, seedless and sweet. All the fruits pointed upwards like a Callimusa! Weird. I can't wait for mine to fruit.

I "stepped up" 5 Thai Blacks, 4 Ebun Musaks, and one Kru. The Kru already has two pups on it! I'll step it up again soon when I remove the pups.

I repotted an I'm-not-sure-what baby today.

(I bought a dwarf namwah and a double mahoi from the same buyer, and they came without labels. No idea which one is which, they're both more or less identical right now.)

Anyhow, one of them was in a ceramic pot, just because that's what I had, but it was sucking the poor thing dry, I've been having to water it constantly. So today I re-potted it in a plastic pot. And noticed when I did that the roots are really starting to grow! Huzzah.

I potted a Dwarf Kluay Nam Wah this evening. I am adamant to get it to fruit in a pot. I have another one in the ground at my nursery. I just love the taste of the Klauy Nam Wah, not overly sweet and very buttery...sllurrppp!
