Hi Rodney,

I can provide you seeds or cuttings. I'm curious what you think killed your plant before.

By the way, growing from seeds is pretty difficult (at least I've found it difficult). I'm trying to grow it from cuttings right now, and got some roots on my cuttings but don't know how well they will fare. (I potted a couple of them up so we'll see.)

Thanks, barathr.
Probably salt buildup, but I'm not certain. I did taste some of the fruits and really enjoyed them. Definitely cotton candy. Let me know when the cuttings have healthy roots
