collecting pemphis

Post  olivierlb on Tue Aug 27, 2013 3:15 pm

Hello,

Most of pemphis acidula I saw are living on the shore. The roots are on the rocks. So I wondering how collecting those trees.

 I read on the web site of harry harrington, that pemphis acidula can be collected without roots !

Regards.

Here the article of Harry:

"Most Pemphis grow in the rocky coastlines amongst coral rocks. Since the roots grow into the rocks, collecting them is rather difficult, Most of the time, we buy collected trees without any roots, that is, the trees are cut away from the rock when they are collected, leaving the roots behind. However, this does not pose a problem, as they quickly send out new roots and shoots when given a moist environment. Sometimes we see them grow roots when they are placed in shade and watered several times daily even before they are potted up".

Robert stevens and Jun ( the specialist of pemphis), is it possible to cut a big trunk of pemphis acidula
on the rock without any roots and then put it on a pot ?

Oliver,
cut them at the base. chip off some rocks as possible. old phempis from the wild are also feeding using some hair roots above ground. this is one of the reason they grow even without the main roots. but be sure to always keep the trunk and branches moist all the time after collecting.

I'll post samples later. on the airport right now to do judging and demo in Vietnam with Robert. also post some photos of the event later,,,but no phempis there. hehe

regards,
jun:)
