Welcome, what are you currently growing in your indoor garden?

Before I moved I had a variety of coleus, succulents and some flowering perennials! But none of them made the move with me (I had to give them all away).

Welcome! I grow caapi indoors in the north, she does well for me. I also have P. viridis, but its hard to tell whether it in-fact grows- soooo slow lol!!

 I can probably hook you up with caapi cuttings when things warm up if you're in need- I owe a few folks here, I'd need to do them right first, but should have some extra- remind me around March if you're interested!

Glad to hear things actually grow this far north  ;D I'll keep you in mind! Cheers!

so i don't have much experience with grafting in general, but i would think that these vines would graft easily. i had something  (bug?) once girdle the bark round one of my vines, something that would kill a tree, but it healed just fine. i have also had branches break, no so cleanly, where there is only a small strip of wood and bark joining the branch to the rest of the plant, and i put the pieces back together and bound them with wire & tape- took about a month to heal, not 100%, but the branch was joined and growing new leaves.

oh, and i am pretty sure, the pics of mature vines that are not entirely round and have lobes to the diameter, are actually multiple branches that have spun around each other, and when this happens, the vines' bark eventually fuses. the inner wood should condense, and likely fuse as well.
this is all with one individual plant healing & fusing with itself

i have had different caapi plants attempt to do this with each other, but i always pull them apart.... what happens when two different vines grow in proximity in the wild?
can two different individual caapi vines fuse? what about caapi, and another trees it grows up/through/on?

my real question, though, is why would you want to do this, what would you expect to gain, as far as "plant fitness"? typically, when i think of grafting to rootstock, i think of tasty fruits that have been grafted to avoid root-pathogens, or to increase cold (possibly drought) tolerance.
caapi & muricata etc seem to all grow pretty fast, both pretty cold sensitive, neither have tasty fruit, i don't think anyone is really investigating with any seriousness the pathogens of these plants....

i think you could probably do it, but would you be able to notice any difference? i guess there's only one way to find out!

Hey sorry to hijack, just a quick question

i have a P. viridis plant i purchased about a year ago, it was about a 30-40cm tall when i got it, with ooh 5 or so branches/growth tips.

when i received the plant, the leaves seemed especially crinkly & curled inward. i thought it would hopefully grow out of it in happy new conditions.
well, i don't think it has grown at all. i think it tried to put out a new set of leaves at each tip, but they came out all crinkly as well, and dropped once they had expanded to only a cm or two in size. no new growth.


any advice? ill try to post some pics soon, but does this sound more of a nutrient deficiency issue, or like a humidity issue, or something else?
if we can get this thing growing a little bit faster, ill have some fresh healthy leaves that i can share for propagating!

I just put RadicalBrewing on my Xmas list ;)
This is a great topic hopefully we can watch it evolve and grow in years to come.  Are there still purity laws active in the US?

Welcome!  I look forward to seeing some of your photos and watching your garden grow. I had 9 acres that I was working on putting an organic orchard on but unfortunately my ex has it now and the weeds are out competing the berries and fruit trees.
I do have 3/4 acre now and working on clearing some of it so I can have a sunny spot for my garden.
Are you interested in entheogens, medicinals, or just edibles? I am interested in all of those and have a growing collection I am happy to share.

Nice find Psylocke.
I actually have a couple leads on Turnera Diffusa.  There are a few vendors in EU and OZ with it so if my domestic cuttings don't work out we can try and get some help from our friends here to get some shipped.  If I get the cuttings and get them rooted I will put you on my list.

Greetings from the cold! I do mostly indoor gardening, but recently moved and have been left plant-less! I have been gardening since I was young and am interested in P. viridis and B. caapi.

Looking forward to learning & getting to know y'all!

What is the big one?

I bought it thinking it is maybe a landscape cultivar of Bridgesii
or a Pachanoi hybrid of some sort.

The only spines are an inch or so. Minimal.

There is a flower forming at the top.

Thanks for help with identification
