Your SEEDS will arrive wet packed in damp paper toweling inside sealed + labeled plastic baggies. You can germinate your seeds indoors inside their baggies or go ahead and plant in a container. You must keep these tropical plants evenly watered + warm at all times (75-85 degrees).
PLEASE READ UP ON THE SOIL REQUIREMENTS OF THIS ACID LOVING PLANT. I OFFER A FEW GROWING TIPS THAT HAVE WORKED FOR ME HERE ON MAUI BUT YOU WILL NEED TO RESEARCH WHAT THIS PLANT LIKES WHERE YOU LIVE.
I like to get my plants growing with a nice root system before planting outdoors in garden soil.
The flowers of the Blackberry Jam Plant/Randia formosa form into small fruits. The petite snowy white flowers remind me of tiny Gardenia blossoms. The flowers will produce small green fruits. Once the fruit matures and turns yellow you can open it up and find the Blackberry 'jam' inside.
These plants stay neat and compact and seem very happy growing in containers. A small garden area with a grouping of these plants is shown in the photos. I have my acid loving plants growing with a 50/50 mix of perlite and peat moss. I keep them watered evenly and give them cold coffee grounds and left over cold coffee any chance that I get.
PLEASE READ UP/RESEARCH HOW TO GROW THESE PLANTS IN YOUR AREA. Tropical plants must be kept warm at all times.
All live plants ordered by Saturdays will ship Priority 3 day USPS mail on Mondays (after Hawaii state Agricultural inspection).
