    Some research into Pitjuri

    My apologies! Pituri is Dubrosa Hopwoodii! Pitjuri is Nicotiana benthamiana but yes... weird name for it

    Growing B. Caapi and P. Viridis in Central Victoria

    I'd be worried about shocking the plants with the change in environment - Is a larger greenhouse possible? I would do an experiment with viridis cuttings from leaves :D

    Bonsai Ethics

    That is really quite something to think about. A more western way of think is that a tree is a benign object of this world, thus excusing the torture though bonsai is not a western practice. Plants appear to have no consciousness on a surface level but this doesn't excuse the fact that an ineffable number of plants can, will and have had a profound impact on the consciousness of society and individuals. You could of course argue that growing a tree out of its natural environment is torture in the same way as taking a child from their family, trees require mycorrhizal relationships, some of these fungi aren't available in other locations. (And we've all seen the size of bonsai pots. There's not a lot of room for anything in there) Alternatively maybe we should be careful of projecting human emotions onto plants? Thanks for the kind words too, that really means a lot
  6. Yesterday at work I was looking at the sky as it was getting dark, I saw a mass of lights with no real structure or shape flying quite slowly overhead. the object was either the size of a small car flying quite low down to the ground or huge and way up in the air. It made a sort of pulsating engine sound as it flew out of sight behind some buildings. I couldn't make out any shape of the vessel as it was very hard to focus on and the sporadic placement of lights didn't help either. I saw no one else around me look up.

    phyllodium pulchellum seeds :)

    Really having no luck here! I might try boiling water - I know they grow near and around acacia confusa which benefit from that sort of prep

    Bonsai Ethics

    How about ethnobotanical bonsai? Acacia or Iboga? It would be pretty interesting!

    Bonsai Ethics

    I supposed (done right) A plant would rather live to reproduce (stunted) than not live at all?

    Post your track of the day

  13. Hey all! I'm very torn on the ethics of a bonsai - On one hand its torture to the plant but on the other it brings the individual closer to nature... I have a few Radiata pine seedlings growing at the moment and was thinking about getting into the art of Bonsai (But i want a clean conscience ) I would love to hear some opinions Thanks again!

    Acacia Germination

    Ah! I never thought about that, it would certainly be poor drainage.
