Dischidia major in cultivation - flowers and seeds

Recommended Posts

Has anyone cultivated Dischidia major and had it flower and set seed?

If so, were you able to germinate and grow plants from the seeds?

I have recently acquired two D. major plants that are rooted cuttings.  I'm just curious if D. major flowers easily in cultivation and produces viable seed.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Bern,  I grew it in a greenhouse in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA for about 7 years.  It started out as a cutting on a piece of tree fern.  When that started growing off the tree fern I nailed  that to a tree trunk in the main conservatory and it has grown up that trunk about 8 feet.  It has always had some of the bullate leaves but it has not flowered there.  I know it got regular fertilizer, but I cannot say that it ever grew vigorously for me - perhaps that is why no flowers.
