What is the climate like in your part of Argentina? I don't know a thing about the beautiful Floss Silk Tree (Ceiba speciosa) but this page at the Missouri Botanical Garden site states that trees rarely set fruit outside of tropical growing areas: http://www.missouribotanicalga... so perhaps your climate is not conducive to fruit set for this tree?
