  1. Irie, So I have recently come across a small leaf variety of P.Viridis. It was growing in a clay pipe pot and totally root bound. I had them crack the pipe and add soil, as it was clearly suffering and had started looking bonsai. I have no idea how the plant reach in this private garden as the plant is not native to here. It may have been the original plantation owner who apparently collected many rare plants from around the world. So I guess I should pop back down the road a get a few cuttings, for preservation purposes.... Respect, Z
  2. Irie, An interesting article a friend sent; hxxp:// Respect, Z
  3. Irie, Treat them like coffee. I would clean and dry them off then store in fairly dry spagnum....otherwise they might sprout. They may take six months to sprout anyways..... Respect, Z
  4. Irie, Up-date This is the latest from Pedro: "There are three possibilities. Serjania equestris, S. laevigata or S. nodosa. I would need to see the leaves to be able to tell the species." Respect, Z
  5. Irie, So got a reply from some buddies at an online group...... "Are we seeing several vascular cylinders in the cross sections, most noticeable in the piece on the right, all surrounded by a common periderm? If so this is characteristic of Serjania (maybe other genera too) Sapindaceae. Serjania do seem to have Amerindian medicinal uses Serjania mexicana is found in Jamaica (Acevedo seed catalog). If there are three external vascular bundles in mature stems that would give three ribs perhaps leading to the local name!" I think he's aced it! Respect, Z
