    B caapi variegation?

    Dunno what this is but I've seen it before. Not variegation, but I don't know what the virus is. Seems to grow out, which I guess you know by now.

    Cactus of the month year day thread? Which cactus is really shining for you right now?

    This Eileen pup, one of about 12 (looks like I smeared the plant with BAP, but I didn't even trim it). It's growing some kind of spurs under the aereolas, I haven't seen that on my other plants. Looks really alive.

    Seed suggestions

    Obregonia denegrii, Strombocactus disciformis, Coryphantha compacta, Mammillaria grahamii, Pelecyphora aselliformis, Turbinicarpus sp. are all great little cacti that are well suited to pere grafting.

    Grafting idea i had

    Depending on the size of the scion piercing it might do it in. Some people have used glue in a similar way to your idea with honey. Apparently it works pretty well. The honey idea is cool, i wonder if it can help with fungal problems too, if these are a problem. You could try to put a small amount of honey on the "far" side of the cut stock as a barrier, then slide the scion off the blade towards the honey barrier, this may help keep the scion slightly in place. Otherwise you can try different shaped stock cuts, like groove or spike, again depending on scion size.

    australias original languages

    hey mate because there are so many first languages of australia and they are spoken by so few people resources can be difficult to find. but they are out there. you could start by checking the Gambay language map and suss out which language you are interested in learning. then have a look at the resources on www.firstlanguages.org.au, the 'language legends' will let you listen to more examples of different languages. if your local library doesn't have any resources on the language you want to learn, see whether the extended library network can transfer some materials from another library for you. if you're super keen there are online courses from uni's and that.

    Wanted: Passiflora Incarnata

    Yep fair enough. Wouldn't discount giving your edulis a try in the meantime. Particularly leaves seem to get neglected: "Various species of Passiflora have been used extensively in the traditional system of therapeutics in many countries. In South America, leaf extracts of P. edulis have been popularly used for the treatment of symptoms of alcoholism, anxiety, migraine, nervousness, and insomnia. A drink from the flower was considered to treat asthma, bronchitis, and whooping cough... "P. edulis has been used as a sedative, diuretic, anthelmintic, antidiarrheal, stimulant, tonic, and also in the treatment of hypertension, menopausal symptoms, colic of infants in South America" (Chopra et al., 1956; Kirtikar and Basu, 1975). In Madeire, the fruit of P. edulis is regarded as a digestive stimulant and is used as a remedy for gastric carcinoma (Watt and Breyer-Brandwijk, 1962). In Nagaland (India), fresh leaves of P. edulis are boiled in little amount of water and the extract is drunk for the treatment of dysentery and hypertension (Jamir et al., 1999). Fruits are eaten to get relief from constipation. P. edulis leaf infusion has been used to treat hysteria and insomnia in Nigeria (Nwosu, 1999). The plant is widely cultivated in India (Kirtikar and Basu, 1975). The leaves are applied on the head for giddiness and headache; a decoction is given in biliousness and asthma. The fruit is used as an emetic. The plant has been used as an analgesic, antispasmodic, antiasthmatic, wormicidal, and sedative in Brazil; as sedative and narcotic in Iraq; in diseased conditions like dysmenorrhea, epilepsy, insomnia, neurosis, and neuralgia in Turkey; to cure hysteria and neurasthenia in Poland; in diarrhea, dysmenorrhea, neuralgia, burns, hemorrhoids, and insomnia in America (Taylor, 1996). This plant is widely used by the South African traditional healers. These traditional uses include alcohol withdrawal, antibacterial, antiseizure, antispasm, aphrodisiac, asthma, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, burns (skin), cancer, chronic pain, cough, drug addiction, Epstein–Barr virus, fungal infections, gastrointestinal discomfort (nervous stomach), Helicobacter pylori infection, hemorrhoids, high blood pressure, menopausal symptoms (hot flashes), nerve pain, pain (general), skin inflammation, tension, and wrinkle prevention (Barbosa et al., 2008; Ingale and Hivrale, 2010)." (Taiwe & Kuete 2017).
