My name is David Adams. I am writing from Campbell River, B.C., right on the 50th paralell. I have had a Wollemia for about three months now and as I am having some really good responses from the plant, I thought I should note my methodology. Others may benefit from or critique my comments. -I bought the last available plant from a small nursery in Abbotsford. +-$200 plus shipping to my home. -I have housed the plant in a 2' x 4' x 4' plastic greenhouse in an indirect sunlight site. -I immediately repotted the plant, knocking off as much as the original soil as possible and repotted it over several large stones to promote good drainage in a new 15" clay pot. I used a commercial sterilized potting soil. People repotting should note the wollemia roots are stiff and brittle, it seems normally, but are still live and vital. -I have liberally watered the plant since it was repotted. I use a hydraguage to make sure the plant stays wet. I think the key is the good drainage, rather than limited watering. -I have not as yet found the biology of Mycorrhizas for this plant, especially regarding nitrogen fixing, and am still looking for references. I am introducing miniscual amounts of 30-10-10 commercial fertilizer. -The plant is responding extremely well. My introductions to watering frequency, sunlit or indirect, and fertilizer have been done gradually with observations to detremine the plant's positive response. -The lower half(+_ 2') of the plant has seen better days and the growth is harder and darker in color. The upper two feet is responding well with abundant new growth on most branch tips, even a second generation of the same since I recieved the plant. -When the temperature outside in the greenhouse dipped to 10 degrees C, I moved the plant inside. My home is usually around 18-20, and I find it is dryer inside than out so my watering has increased marginally. -I think the plant likes to be touched and talked to. I have two questions at present. 1) On the lower, harder portion of the trunk, there seems to be some sort of pitch(not pitchy) or serum exuding from several locations. These do not seem to be associated with any trauma, but more spontanious. The color of the pitch is white, seems dry to touch, and has not increased from when first noted. I wonder what this might be? 2) I have seen pictures of Wollemia and it may be true that there are several varieties in circulation. Some of the photos show fairly slim, but tall and straight trees. Others seem to be more of the shape of a vine maple. Mine is the latter and has develoed a 's' bend in the trunk as well as a second bend seeming to start in the next generation of crown, now showing. Any comments on my observation here will be appreciated.
