Kind of neglecting my epis at the moment. Too much work in the large yard clearing up after windstorms and trying to keep up with tropical growth. Laid out the "botanical gardens" 10-15 years ago and now I'm that much older to have to keep it under control. No fair!
Anyway back to epis. I have seven fruit that are just getting to ripening age so this morning I picked one cut it in two and processed the seed for growing. Steps in the pics - cut the fruit in half, scrape out the meat and seeds, mix with water to separate the seeds. Put paper towel on a bed of 60/40 perlite and potting soil with some 16.16.16 for luck. Decide to keep the meat with some left over seeds to see if they would grow. The rest of the seeds are scattered on the other half of the tray.
Made sure it was moist and then put the top on. Now wait and see on the kitchen counter.
Just need 6 more trays of pastries to get trays for the other fruits
If someone has another method please share!
Just fun my backyard bamboo
