Thanks Jarred!


Looking good, Amber & Ante!


Don't feel too bad Amber because I can't get my Desert Rose seeds to pop either - yet. Good luck with yours.

What happened to your pics, Ante?!


Here's my Sweet Granadilla (Passiflora lingularis) recently sprouted seedling from Beth...





P.S. Yes Amber, the Goji Berry seedlings are a bit fragile until they get going. If you want fuller, more bushier shrubs, begin pruning when the plants are young.

Everything's looking good, you guys. Thanks for sharing.

Those Goji berry seedlings you saw me post earlier Amber, no longer exist! The truth is I was really just testing them for viability for a friend but I had no intention on keeping them.

I saw your pic of your seedlings though and that's exactly how they should look, so don't worry. They don't grow super fast right away. Do you fertilize your seedlings? If you do, they'll develop more quickly for you.

If you want a dense, bushy shrub instead of a tall spindly one, be sure to prune the tops off any new shoots as they develop and grow 4-6 inches long, and the shrub will totally branch out for you.

They like to be pruned often when they really get growing and in the long run you'll have way more berries as a result. Don't prune while they are too young. Be sure there's enough growth first.

You do know that when Goji is grown from seed though, they won't produce fruit until the third or fourth year? The best yield however, comes after the 4th and 5th year.

Thanks, they seem so delicate and even the rain drops will kill the plant. I started getting them acclimated to the sun and they were doing fine, so i took them out for a bit longer and 3 wilted and died. I think it is too hot here right now and they should be in partial shade.

Smile Re: What'cha got sprouting? (other plants)

Goji Berry shrubs usually do fine with the sun & heat - love it, in fact. Here's some things to check for Amber...


If your little Goji seedlings are in small black or dark green pots, the roots could be cooking, and this would be the cause of wilt followed by death. Shield the pots from heat or repot into white containers.

Also...

Goji berry plants are extra appealing to insects, and spider mites will take them down in the blink of an eye. Be sure to check the undersides of your Goij leaves for evidence of mites. They can go undetected if you're not expecting them or looking for them, and before you know it your plant is dead.

: (

Apart from that, keeping them in the shade for awhile is a good idea. Any plant that's in distress will not like the sun and should be protected for now until you figure out what's going on. Don't fertilize while the plants are distressed either.

Be sure too that your shrubs are in a good light and well-draining soil, so the roots are not struggling in a heavy medium.

Good luck with them, Amber. Hope they do better for you soon.

well the heat index says it was 109F/43c yesterday, so i'm not sure if they like it quite that hot lol They are in peat pots, but the peat pots are sitting in a black tray. I don't see any bugs, but i did find a caterpillar that was was eating my poha/cape gooseberry seedings lol I'll keep and eye on them, they are super easy to sprout, so if all else fails i will start over!

OH YEAH I have 3 desert roses popping up! 2 pinks and one violet. I mixed in a bunch of vermiculite with my seed starting mix and they popped up only 3 days later. None of the 12 i planted a month ago came up in the normal seed starter mix.

Healthy Goji


Not So Healthy Goji


Poha Caterpillar Damage


Desert Rose!

Wink Re: What'cha got sprouting? (other plants)

Wow - didn't realize you guys were that hot, Amber.

: o

That's smoking! No wonder they are in distress.

Something I noticed...

On the Goji seedling that's not doing well, I see a little ball of fertilizer touching the stem. Combined with heat, it could have irritated the little seedling. I use fertilizer enriched soils too that have slow-release capsules but some seedlings are delicate so make sure none of the capsules are actually touching them. Just a thought, because I've had it happen where seedlings have died from this.

I think your idea of shade with those kind of temperatures is your best solution at this point. Seedlings could easily be killed off with that kind of intense and extreme heat.

I use Sunshine soil-less mix # 4 and it's loaded with perlite, yet my desert rose seeds didn't pop yet. I only had two seeds but I was hoping for at least one. Haven't given up yet though...

My Pacific Blue Primrose seeds have come up!

Talking Re: What'cha got sprouting? (other plants)

By the way, Amber...

Put broken pieces of eggshells around the base of your Poha seedling. Be sure to make a complete circle. This will deter the caterpillars, as they don't like to crawl over the sharp shells. Plus it adds slow-release calcium over time.

Good luck.

Default Re: What'cha got sprouting? (other plants)

thanks for the info, i will make sure none of the fertilizer is touching the stem. It says its guaranteed not to burn plants, but i didn't even think seedlings could be more affected. The Poha and Lipstick trees LOVE the heat and sun lol But yeah i think it's too much for the little Goji Berries lol
With the Desert Roses I had gotten 20 Pink seeds and only 5 Violet seeds, so i'm really happy i got at least one violet sprouted. Hopefully a few more will come up!

Gratz on the Blue Primrose! Post pictures!

Take care!
