    Araucaria bidwillii

    So one of my professors at CSU has been researching Bunya pine seed germination. Here's what he told us: The seeds are Cryptogeal meaning they germinate outside the soil - So placed on top of simple potting mix. The seeds cannot be dried out if moisture content drops below 30% the seed will be inviable. The embryo will grow quickly after "planting" pushing a root stem cell into the soil from the seed and transferring all the nutrient in the seed to a ribosome. From here the a sprout appears onto of the ribosome and the tree grows as normal! Hope this helps someone out!

    Very interesting read

    Hey all! Learning about this in Botany at uni... I had never heard of it and it is incredibly interesting once you get your head around it! https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternation_of_generations Was happy to find some Haploid Gametophytes growing on the side of this plant. Enjoy! Comment your thoughts!

    Nope, a bunch of phyllodes fell off and new ones grew back in its place. The plant is very happy now

    Transporting cacti seedlings

    Hey all! I'm moving from NSW to the ACT and of course im taking my cacti seedlings with me. The room they are moving to is south facing and they have access to sun all day (They are currently taking off in a surprisingly shady part of the garden) Any tips to help the little guys take off in the new climate indoors? Most of them are still in take away boxes and doing better than ever a few monstrose too :D Thanks so much - you may have just saved 400 cacti

    a. simplex wanted

    Seems like a bit on an allusive plant! Ever since i started looking to acacias i've heard a lot promised about simplex but not a lot of information on the plant itself

    If time and the universe is infinite then the probability of the creation of a protein is 100%, right?

    phyllodium pulchellum seeds :)

    Treated a few seeds! Now the waiting game, hope the new greenhouse helps get those temps up Thanks so much for the info! Never tried d.gangeticum but would love to sort something out with you next time you get your hands on some!

    phyllodium pulchellum seeds :)

    Is that in the right order or do you hot water treatment then sow? Or pour boiling water over the soil? I poured boiling water onto the seeds in a container and have left them to soak overnight - one of which popped out of the inner seed casing and probably isn't viable! If i ever do get any to grow and seed you'll be first in line! Im running out of seed fast though with this failure rate
