    Psycho0 X Yowie

    I just did a little more research into the ID and your quite right, It is definitely a T.knuthianus. Something interesting to add to the collection

    Psycho0 X Yowie

    Nice plants Naja naja, Do you find that they all become more fat at the tip and stay skinny at the base or do you think it's just a trait of the Psyco0 X Yowie? One of my super-pedro's seems to do the exact same thing, but mine is a little fatter at the base. I love the Yowie's and I actually just won a Yowie off evilbay. Here's a couple of pics to compare with your Psycho0 X Yowie.

    Best greenhouse for $'s

    Hey BlownG, I think this is what you are looking for. It's Wire Mesh Panel 180x120cm and the grid size is: 100x100x5mmHere's the link; http://www.bunnings.com.au/products_product_wire-mesh-handy-panel-180x120cm-100x100x5mm-21866_P3069924.aspx?search=wire&searchType=any&searchSubType=products It would work out rather expensive though as you would need quite a few of these panels to make-up a greenhouse around the size in your video but you could perhaps get the materials cheaper from a recycling centre/dump shop.

    Best greenhouse for $'s

    Well there's only one way to find out I guess. And the fun begins... Done some trimming of surrounding trees today in-order to get that little bit of extra sunlight in there. It really did make a big difference, especially after I rerouted the monster passion-fruit vine which was blocking alot of the midday sun as it was basically covering the whole roof. Much better now.

    Has anyone ever used polycarbonate sheeting for their roofing? I am converting one of the chook-pens on my farm into a nursery/greenhouse and I want to be able to keep the rain out but still let as much sun in as possible. The problem is that the clear polycarbonate roofing sheets say that it blocks out 99.9% of UV rays. Does that mean that it won't be any good to use as a roofing material for my nursery?
  6. Hey Guys & Gals, I was searching for a MP3 player the other day and stumbled upon a new concept by Creative. It is a wristband MP3 player that has wireless earplugs and charges of your pulse, yes that's right, there's no batteries, you just need to have a beating heart in-order for it to operate and charge. Truly an innovative invention Here's a link to it; http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/digitally-advanced-fashion And a basic run-down on how it operates; http://thetechjournal.com/tech-news/you-will-soon-be-able-to-charge-your-ipod-with-your-heartbeat.xhtml Very interesting stuff!!

    Cactus & Succulent Show Brisbane 8th & 9th June

    Haha, I must be always getting on the wrong bus then. I called Park-ridge transport and there's no buses running on Saturday or Sunday from where I am, so it looks like I'm not going to make it this year Time to start saving for another car I think.

    Lilly Pilly Jam & other bush foods Receipes

    Wow, Lilly pilly jam sounds rather interesting. Still, I can't go past home-made rosella jam. Absolutely delish, and as soon as my Rosella plants are ready to harvest I'll be making a batch. I do have an idea for the sweetening side of things though... I'm sure you have heard of the new Pepsi next that uses 30% less sugar than normal Pepsi due to the addition of using a natural sweetener from the Stevia plant, well that's exactly what I plan on using for my home-made Rosella jam. I'm guessing it will still need SOME sugar though... I'll let you know how it goes

    Cactus & Succulent Show Brisbane 8th & 9th June

    I'm going to do my best to make this one & get some photos with my new camera, but if I can't make it would someone be able to take some pics and post them up on here for everyone to see? Public transport is a nightmare out this way...

    Post awesome gifs here

  12. Hi SABers, I have been recently looking at getting a new quilt cover and pillow cases for my bed which arrives tomorrow but they all just seem too drab and boring. That was until I found some awesome bedding from Cafepress. I was originally going to get a double quilt cover with a cactus print & complimenting barrel cactus pillow cases but have since changed my mind, although I still want the cactus pillow covers. What could be better than resting your head on a bunch of cacti at the end of the day? Anyway this is the bed-set that I am going for so-far; Quilt/duvet cover http://www.cafepress.com.au/+mystic_fantasy_dream_twin_duvet,640139108 Pillow case x2 http://www.cafepress.com.au/+barrel_cacti_pillow_case,667391564 It's a tad expensive but I think it will look excellent If you can think of a better combination feel free to show me!! Next on the cards are some "out-there" curtains I think, and maybe even a matching rug...

    Incriminating posts & where are the mods????

    C'mon guys, we're all on the same side here. How about a little bit of goosefraba... Time to build a bridge, get over it, shake hands and make up. We are all apart of a community and a good one at that, and a good community sticks together. Lets get back to our love of plants and gardening in general and show our appreciation for the gifts Mother Earth has given us. Lets show our appreciation for the all the great advice, knowledge and friendship that we have inherited from the SAB forum/family. We're all friends here. We're all family and WE are all ONE. THANK-YOU SAB Spice-

I also plan on getting one of these in the near future, especially after seeing it in person.

    WTB - Pachycereus Pringlei

    Hi guys, been looking for a Pachycereus pringlei(Cardon cactus) plant for my garden for a while now and I can't seem to track one down anywhere. If you, or someone you know has a plant they would be keen to sell me I'd be much appreciative. Thanks-
