Even in the specialist nurseries here, cordylines are sold without names, so no point asking for something in particular because they dont know either. I found that I tend to buy plants that stand out from the crowd colour wise or with unusual leaves. Also in my experience, the fancier ones do best for me in pots, only the older style look good in the ground. Is that just me ?

My Ti Red Sister is shooting off some seeds. What is the best way to germinate by seed? What method to take to seed?

Easy to germinate from seed. Remove the tiny black seed from the ripe berries. Keep your fingers wet with water, as this will help with your fingers from becoming a sticky mess and makes removing the seed from the fruit easy. Plant the seed in a good potting mix, covering the seeds with a thin layer of the potting mix. Water and within a few weeks seedlings should start to appear. Keeping the soil moist at all times. Here is a pot of Hawiian Boy seedlings from late Aug seed.

I have planted a few this wet season. Let's see how they colour up in the dry this year. Yes, here... they colour up better in the dry season when the sun is less severe & less humid.

Regards, Ari :)

Bolero has been in Australia for at least 15 years or more, it is one of the early hybrids that I owned, like some of the other oranges it doesn't like cold or too much sun.

I have the berries all the time, never tried growing them. I'm going to try a batch. I have many types in the yard, do they cross with each other?

Hi

These plants are very rewarding and require little care. I have a few different varieties; like Peachy I find the old-fashioned ones do best for me. Wind and snails are their biggest enemy.

I have some unidentified ones that I brought here from when I lived in the tropics and have no idea what they are. If anyone could help with identification, it would be appreciated:)

No idea what this one is. It was a cutting I brought here, I haven't paid it any attention but it is going strong:

This one does pathetically for me. It grows a few tiny leaves a year. Any idea what it is?

post-5838-003769200 1333961471_thumb.jpg

My favourite, the old-fashioned one. I've seen them as big as small trees around here

post-5838-058263500 1333961454_thumb.jpg:

Another mystery one:

No idea what this one is. It grows rapidly all year round:

I also have the plain green one. Pacific islanders used it for skirts. This is a cutting I took recently. It is hard to find nowadays:
