What are the pros? Hard to find, good in pots
What are the cons? Shipped too small not thriving
I received tiny sprouts with two or three good leaves, but unlike the other reviews, mine didn't grow vigorously. I wonder if they were too young and fragile to ship yet? I originally ordered four plants - one died promptly and the other lingered and failed as well. Customer service was very nice in helping me troubleshoot, and reassured me they should be very happy in my mild, coastal climate. I can't say they're easy even if the species isn't needy because they aren't responding to my attempts to help them thrive.
My surviving plants are in 2.5-gallon containers in full sun. Over the course of the growing season (from arrival in mid-June until the beginning of December) one plant has reached a bit over a foot in height, the other, maybe eight inches above the soil. I'm crossing my fingers for better growth next year, as I've had good luck with other plants from Baker Creek, but am currently feeling underwhelmed with the live shipment of dwarf mulberry sprouts. Maybe dislikes fog?
