Potted Megaflora Plants Raised
2004-2005. Thousands of paulownia crosses (Megaflora) were planted in pots in
the cafeteria of the old Monsanto corn plant in Ulysses,
Kansas. The few that survived are planted on land next to the corn plant.
2. April 2008. About twenty thousand Megaflora plants were processed and put in the
greenhouses – none survived.
3. May 2008. Several thousand Megaflora plants were potted and put in a heated
building in Ulysses,
– the few that survived were moved to a professional greenhouse in
They are still small.
4. 2008. Thousands of Megaflora roots were potted in greenhouses in
California. Out of the few that survived,
about six months ago one hundred were transplanted in the fields on one farm
and four hundred were transplanted planted on another farm. Currently, they are about six inches high. Their future is in question.
5. 2008. Thousands of Megaflora plants were potted in the
greenhouses and are several months old. The ones that survived have reached about six inches in height. Some were planted about three months ago. The ones that survived have reached about three inches high.
Megaflora Trees Planted
2003. Ninety acres (about 30,000) Megaflora roots were planted in
Paulownia, Cumuru and
Cottonwood). None survived.
2. 2004-2005. Five thousand (5,000) Megaflora roots were potted in greenhouses in
then replanted in fields in the
(these were a cross between paulownia, cumuru, and cottonwood). Only a few of them survived. The results shown in the internet sites of Emerald Energy LLC are
Allen does not give reference where the facts
can be verified.
3. 2005. A few acres of Megaflora trees were planted in Ulysses,
behind the old Monsanto corn plant. (Cross: Some with paulownia, black locust
and cottonwood, others with a cross between paulownia and black locust). Three year results: The few that survived are about eleven feet tall
and would produce less than one dry ton per acre – not twenty seven dry tons
per acre as
4. 2008. One hundred Megaflora trees were planted in fields on one farm near
another four hundred planted in fields nearby. Six months after taking them out of pots and planting them in the
fields they are only approximately six inches high.
5. December 2008. About eighty acres of large Megaflora roots (about 30,000) were
planted in central valley
without first planting them in pots in greenhouses. Survival rate and success is
