Chaliponga grow
« on: December 01, 2010, 06:31:18 PM »
I received some seeds said to be chaliponga. They are supposed to take 3-4 weeks to start germinating. Here is a photo of one of them. It looks a little like a brown moth, doesn't it?

Irie Stoney,
Good to see ya growing!
The butterfly wings are very distinctive.
Hence the name;
diptero-, dipterus -a -um two-winged
Dipteronia Twice-winged (the two-winged carpels of the fruits)
Lophhira Crested (one of the sepals enlarges to a wing which aids
fruit dispersal)
lopho- crest-, crested
ptera-, ptero-, -pteris -is -e, ptery- with a wing- , winged

Today i discovered 2 sprouts! I put them in soil keeping them in a warm place. The only ones that have sprouted so far are the ones i treated with ga3. I have a few more seeds in the fridge, i'll try the ga3 on them too. The source said expect 3-4 week minimum and it's been only a couple weeks. I hope for many more sprouts.

I just soaked some of the seeds in a ga3 solution of about 650 ppm overnight. It was a solution i made up many months ago and kept in the fridge. I wasn't sure if it was still good or not but those were the only ones i got sprouts out of. I haven't checked for sprouts yet today. I have my last 20 seeds soaking in ga3 in hopes of getting more sprouts using that tec. I also hope for more sprouts from the other ga3 batch and perhaps some from those soaked in peroxide only and then put on damp paper towel.

I got a total of at least 40 sprouts. Out of that, about 15 are doing well and decent size. Another 1/2 doz are doing ok but small. About a dozen or more died and the rest are tiny or i don't know. Here is a pic, its a little old, i have larger ones than this now.

I started 12 of these yesterday. I guess we will wait and see. As was stated in another thread I am pretty sure these are diplopterys pauciflora, not cabrerana. Either way I am looking forward to seeing if they germinate.

I started a lot more seeds than just them  :tea:

What has worked for me is soaking them overnight in a ga3 solution of around 500 ppm and then keeping them moist and warm. I kept them in a plastic baggie on a damp paper towel on top of my modem. No matter what i did some died but keeping them humid and warm does help. I should end up with 20 or more good sized ones. Some people said they didn't fert theirs but mine were getting pale leaves and seemed to like some ferts. I'm giving them lots of light but not sun.

Here is a pic of one of my little plants. They seem to respond to ferts and when i lowered the light level they seemed to like that too. I had them under 2 shoplights which gave about 40 w/ft and i cut back to half of that.

It's the only one doing that well. I have noticed that since i cut back on the light and increased the ferts, they are starting to green up and grow better.

Do you have any idea if this plant has any toxic compounds in the chemical structure that regular"Chaliponga" doesn't?

Irie,
I've sent out a package with some mature leaves, to a meme(ber) from this forum.
Who is going to run some tests.
