I have a couple others in pots that I've been thinking about selling (same size). Would anyone here be interested? They are much less common than Butia Capitata but they can handle more moisture (perfect for WA and OR) and they grow way faster. I'm located in Bremerton, but I'm happy to deliver elsewhere for a small fee. Unfortunately my phone won't let me attach pics, but if you PM me, I can text or email you pics.
They were grown from RPS seeds.
I'm going to ask for $125 each.
i would appreciate comments about what value or detriment this plant can be.
i researched and found that it is poisonous unless cooked properly and the roots are the most dangerous.
what sould i do? leave them alone or compost them? or what. i understand that this plant has a big tap root and eliminating them can be difficult.
any and all comments/suggestions will be appreciated. thanks
Pinkerton scion grafted successfully on Hass branch which was grafted on avocado seedling 2 or 3 years ago. The Pinkterton scion are so easy to graft (100% success with cleft graft) as long as I pick good scions. Shoots from scions start to grow after 2 or 3 weeks.
I am only allowed to post 3 pictures. I will continue the next post.
