My chaliponga greened up when i gave them more ferts. I notice they like a lot of light too. When i put them where they were getting pretty good light but not a lot, they began dropping leaves and dying off. When i put them right by the window or right under the floros, they perked back up. I put a couple outside but in the shade not direct sun. They seem to be doing ok and later i'll give them a little sun. You have to be careful not to go up too fast on sun exposure. I'm not even sure if they could take direct sun or how much. Maybe when they get bigger and older.

My chalis agree with yours, Stoney. They were spindly and leggy as seedlings indoors in a window, so I took them outside. I kept them in a closed room all night, with a bulb on for more light. I put them out where they could get some full sun during the day, and they improved more. I gave them a little maxicrop, guano and blood, and they started to green and grow.

They are still viney in habit, but have several sets of larger leaves now. Beautiful green.  Some lower leaf tip browning and etiolation, possibly from the ferts, not significant. I think they are big enough for more ferts now.

I put them out in full sun at 9am, and keep them in sun all day. They seem to like it fine.

I'm going to start getting mine used to sun too. Little by little does it.

Some pics:
boayahuasca and white caapi
chali babies

Ten for ten white caapi sprouted, very viable. 3/10 bo's, 1/10 black caapi, 0/0 yellow caapi. I'm gonna have a lot of white caapi, hope it brews up sweet!

correction: 0/10 yellow caapi germed.
8/20 chali seeds germed, much thanks to you, Stoney, for the hormone.  :smoke:3

The long, tender, vulnerable chali stems have gotten stronger in the sun, they are covered in a fine grayish bark and today I see the first side branch nodes (where the juvenile leaves formed) shooting happily! Luv it...  :tea:

Mine are getting bigger and i'm slowly getting them used to the sun. I should take a pic but someone will top it with some monstrosity. The outdoor ones are about 8" and starting to fill out.

It's hard to be 100% on anything. The question is whether it's as good as the stories or not.

Stoney, I promise not to post anything more on this thread, I wasn't wishing to steal your thunder here, just stoked the plants are doing well.  8)

I just took a look and the biggest one is not tall but each leaf is about 8" long and fairly fat. I have 3 outside and one inside. Out of all the seeds and seedlings that is not much. I did send out one or two.

hi..
 Should Chaliponga have a thick woody root, instead of really fibrous like Caapi?  I thought, maybe since they're both vines, they might be fibrous like this plant.

I haven't dug them up to look at the roots but the little ones seemed to have normal roots. Maybe zaka will give his opinion on that?

Irie,

Is that REALLY confirmed to be 100% for sure Diplopterys c?

Well I'm 99% sure it's Malpighiaceae Alicia anisopetala.
The term Chaliponga seems to refer to a number of species of malpighiaceae vines & differs from region to region.
The trunk is distinctly different to Caapi, in that it has a spongy , openish sort of bark.
Not sure about the roots self??
Respect,
Z

Zaka, your Alicia plants are big now, any chance you could brew up say 10g of dried leaf and do a bio-assay with caapi?

I'm really curious to see if there is light in the leaf, and in what amount. Mine are still too young to harvest.
