Hola,

Does anyone grow Hoja Santa/Rootbeer leaf, and could I get a cutting? It's a rampant grower and I don't have the patience to grow it from seed. Haven't seen it for sale anywhere.

I'm in Berkeley, and could probably come up with something to trade, too.

Thanks!
Rafael

If you don't mind driving to yamagami's nursery in Cupertino you can get a cutting no problem. Thats where i sourced my original cuttings. They have a huge patch and wouldn't mind the help maintaining it haha.

i have one...
yeah, they are rampant growers.
its only been in ground a few months
and there must be 30+ huge leaves, and 3 or 4 suckers with roots.
i can spare 2 pretty easy.

what ya got for a trade ?
i already grow dozens of species, but, always looking for
different varieties, species etc...
anything edible, that will work in zone 9b would be great.
