  1. Yep, take a safe herbal product used for thousands of years, then extract and refine it or even just synthesise parts of it, to make sure it's as far removed as possible from what nature intended...
  2. Ah shame I can't afford all 8 in one hit, if you ever decide to split the lot, I'll definitely take a couple.
  3. Hamilton's have issues too with their labelling, I have bought a terscheckii and a myrtillocactus both labelled as Peruvian torch.
  4. Soo, I scored a really nice metre long cut of a bridge and it arrived today. It shows a bit of rib shifting towards the base, I'm hoping it does a bit more of that. Got a super good deal too, cost me $20 plus postage. Anyway, it's putting out roots all the way along one side from the base right up to the tip. My question to you all is what would you do with it? I was planning on putting it directly in my garden whole, then start taking a cut or two as it got established and put on more growth, but what happens to all those roots if they aren't in contact with the soil? Do they keep growing down looking for contact? Would you cut it into 2 or more pieces or leave it whole? Or lay it down like a log? Interested to hear your opinions.

    Drug tests if you're on the dole

    It would be nice if Abbott would copy some of New Zealand's better features like allowing salvia to be legal, and regulating synthetics, but no we just get the worst idea...
  6. If it's flowering now it's not obtusifolia, more likely to be a.longifolia. Could be something else but longifolia is a good guess, it should be starting to flower right about now, at least they are in my area.

    Please help ID pest on chilli plant

    If you've got any tomato plants, crush up some leaves in hot water and spray em with the water, aphids hate it.

    Looking to Broaden Collection

    Hey mate, I have some unrooted dragon fruit cuttings if you want one, pretty sure they'd survive postage - they are kind of epiphytic anyway. Pm me if you want one.

    Too late to repot trichs?

    I've been potting ups cuts to get the roots ready for in ground planting come spring. I figure if we get extended bad weather I can keep them under cover.

    The peach habs are pretty rare, and they are sooo hot!

    Nagabon are one of my favourites, heavy fruiting plants, the most amazing smell when you cut open a pod, and absolutely brain meltingly hot!

    That was fast. Doublebenno and fydesvindico, just need yr details. Thanks all.
  17. Picked up these two little fellows at bunnings - first one labelled as "peruvian torch" - supplier is hamiltons. It doesnt look particularly like a peruvianus to me, and I mistrust their labelling a bit as I bought another one labelled the same which I am pretty sure is a terscheckii... Any guesses? I know it's hard to say based on a juvenile form... Pach? Scop? Peruvianus? Something else? From the top. Second one looks much more like a peruvianus to me, unlabelled, supplier is collectors corner (paradisia). Smurf blue colour and golden spines. Beautiful cactus whatever it is anyway. If anyone else thinks it is very likely a peruvianus, I might pick up another one. There was a bigger one, but it had a few wounds and I suspect had beginnings of rot... Peruvianus? From the top. Thanks for your opinions.
  18. No problem. I'm getting better at IDing random cacti I see around. I came across what I first thought was a big scopulicola in someone's front yard but only got a closer look and I've now called it for a stenocereus marginata, so I'll not bother knocking and asking for a cutting.
  19. Ok. Grafting stock then.
  20. Hi, I've been waiting for a cut of Eileen to take root and decided to check it today. It was pretty well calloused and I have tried to keep it dry in it's new pot, but during the last few weeks, we have had a lot of rain and inevitably it managed to get more water than I would have liked. I have taken it out of the soil to air for a while, does this dark spot look nasty to anyone else though?

    collectors corner plants rotting

    I saw a cactus in bunnings today from CC and it was very much looking like it had rot already, but they do water the living daylights out of their cacti there...
  22. Will do EG, I'll get some close ups in the morning.
  23. If number one becomes a massive log, I'll go get another! Worth a punt for a measly $7...
