    newby how to use forum?

    Sorry for being a smartarse, but I couldn't help myself. Are you using the forum on a computer or mobile device? That's probably the first question. Things will appear differently depending on which. Once we know, we can assist you a bit.

    Guinea fowl

    You can trim their wing feathers so they can't take off.

    You appear to be using it already...
  6. Or at least anyone with a decent amount of knowledge about the creation myths, Adam and Eve myths etc? I was raised as a Catholic and I need to work on eliminating a lot of extremely deep seated programming from my childhood. I had a few interesting "revelations" and there was a lot of info downloaded regarding the Genesis myths, garden of Eden stories, the "fall" and the nature of the demiurge. I'd love to chat about some of this with someone sometime. Still really trying to form a reasonably coherent line of thought about all of this. But I feel I'm getting closer to finding the root program that causes a lot of my dysfunctional behaviour.

    PGR experiments

    Triacontanol can be supplied by alfalfa meal or mulch, and a little is ok. I don't like adding anything that's not organicfor the reasons you state though.

    What to do with full variegated cutting?

    To prevent that shrinkage, what you can do is prepare the stock as if you were about to graft, bevel edges/ribs, then leave it for a week or two. It might pucker, but then when you are about to graft, just make a fresh slice and bobs your uncle.
  10. I have 6 plants approx 4-5 years old from OP seed collected at Dawson's. The mother is the legendary "Ben", the daddy could be any of the amazing plants at Dawson's. Plants 1-6 from left to right (bottom to top in 2nd picture). Plant 1- approx 23 cm $20. Plants 2-4 approx 27cm $25 each. Plants 5, 6 approx 30cm $30 each. Postage extra, around $15 for reg and $18 for express. Australia only. Can't do WA, Tas or NT due to quarantine. Please comment plant # and sold and send me a pm. Each sale gets an extra gift, might be some of my tricho seeds or another small seedlings of random origin. Cheers folks.

    Climate Change For Cacti

    My cactus and caapi are loving the heat. Everything else is dead. I was expecting cactus casualties and I had a big column bend and snap last week, but apart from that, they are all absolutely booming.

    Happy new year

    I've never been big on resolutions, but I'm giving up drinking tonight for a year at least. I plan to dieta with as many plants as I can. I need to get in tune. And more catch-ups with the amazing crew of SAB legends. What are your plans?

    Thanks for the tip, if I find myself struggling I'll try that.

    I hope to head north to catch up with you and some other folks @Responsible Choice
  15. Stories are a map of those who went before. Experience is the planting of lamp posts along a path. People mistake the map for the purpose. A map is the lay of the land, not a vector. Where do we want to go? That is the question most commonly asked. But maybe we should just be asking how to get there, seeing as the ending is inevitable, right? Sorry if this is cryptic, just laying down thoughts as they occur in a seemingly important moment.

    What to do with full variegated cutting?

    Wedge grafts are also good for this reason. Greater surface area of union, and very stable once in position.

    What to do with full variegated cutting?

    Slab grafts are the easiest type of graft. You have a much greater surface area of vascular tissue to line up, which makes it a whole lot easier. And because slabs flat, they are very easy to pply nice even pressure without worrying that the Scion will slide away from the intended position.

    Psycho0 is the superior grafting stock. It beats pc any day of the week.

    A couple cuts for sale

    Hey Hal, what's the story for "Halcyon Dream"? It looks a lot like the macro complex (Fields/Gawler/Tipz/Strath/Kimba/Adelaide...).

    Watch this space

    Well, a bill like this has zero chance of being passed by Mitch McConnell's Republican controlled Senate, in fact, probably won't even be looked at before an election, especially given the current circus. They haven't even passed the banking changes that will allow their bank mates to accept green money, and that bill was passed in Congress like 6 months ago.
