    kk2152: cuzco or Peru?

    I know taxonomy is a slippery slope, especially for cacti originating from knize, but what is the general consensus on kk2152? I haven't received my cutting I just bought yet, so I don't have any pics. I have seen a few from the sale pics and the piece I am getting doesn't have 2 large central spines, only 1, and they don't seem much fatter at the areole. But it does look a bit cuzco from the top...

    Australian stinging tree..

    When I was little, I was told stories of early settlers who used the leaves as toilet paper once, as they look so nice and big and soft...probably myth, but imagine...

    What's eating you pup?

    Psycho0 threw a new pup at it's base a week ago and all was going well... It's been raining a lot here, and when I had a look this morning, something's been having a chew. I cant see any snail trails on the pot or near the cactus anywhere, so I am not sure what's beeing eating it and how to ward it off. i'd like to take action before it has another go and does some real damage. Any ideas?
  4. Then we'd have celebrity endorsements for the woollies vs Coles brand battle, I wonder who they'd pick as their figureheads?

    What's eating you pup?

    It's not a split, it's a definite chew job, whatever it is, it didn't eat much and hasn't come.back for more yet.

    What's eating you pup?

    Could be a mouse, like I said, no snail trails, but can't hurt to lay some copper. If it was a mouse, he must have had a good day...:-o

    Cool, I'll lay out some copper kryptonite!
  10. It probably doesnt matter what you start with, because, in all likelihood, you will catch the obsession and pretty soon you'll be collecting all sorts and types! They're all cool!

    avoiding sunburn on young seedlings

    I've given them an extra layer just in case.
  15. I have started a new batch of seedlings this week and had great germination so far. They're all in takeaway containers and sitting on a benching that gets sunlight for around half a day, and indirect light for the rest of the day. To avoid sun damage, I have draped some doubled over curtain material over the top. Do you think this will be enough protection from the late winter sun? Or move them right away from the sun until they are older?

    Urban roadside poppies id

    I think you're right, looks a lot like setigerum.
  21. I have been seeing a few of these popping up around Sydney lately, it took me a long time to even get a good look at one to realise it was a poppy at first, as I am usually drivinng past them at 60-80kmh. Today the traffic stopped just right so I was able to take a very hasty and crappy phone pic. Any ideas on what they might be? Regular poppies or something more interesting? They are kinda light pink with a darker purple spot near the base of the petals - reminds me of pap. somniferum in a way, but i'm far from an expert on poppies. Please excuse the crappy quality of the photos...I'll try to get a better one...
