do i need to pot these in soil , dip in rooting hormore?
or will they just leaf/flower out and die anyway?
you might've guessed. i havent done much propagating before.
looked in my books but not quite sure ...
yea i think i forced them to bloom..
there are no flowers (yet?) just leaves out of nodules along the stem, i'll take some pictures soon.
turned teh compost pile and found an almond growing in there!, put it in a peat pot but it's turning yellow now. oh well.

There are different varieties of goji berry. Some are from Northern China, some from Southern China.
Lycium chinense is the southern variety, I believe, while Lycium barbarum is the northern one. I've got seedlings of the southern type started, will see how it does here.
curious what it may need to put out more fruit?
heres the lonely lil berry jus' hangin there ,flappin' in the breeze. its gotten really viney so i'm going to prune it back some again...
it is the last listing on that page. The "a!" in the header indicates that there are between 1,000 and 10,000 seeds per pack ($2.50). If you order from him, be certain to request a catalog...incredible selection of many hard to find seeds, affordable prices, and good service. His catalog is chock-a-block with useful information....belongs on every homesteader's book shelf.

Thanks John! Quite a selection there. Looks like I may be ordering from them this winter.
For anyone seeking the chinese or tibetan variety, many of the dried fruits available in the health food store have viable seed. I was successful once just breaking up one berry and tossing it in a pot.
