    My overgrown cactus garden

    Throw down some old manure or slow release fertiliser and sheet-mulch over the grass with wet cardboard, then whatever you like over the top of that

    Finished **** Psychotria alba seedling giveaway

    Pm me your details please trichojester
  5. So as promised elsewhere, I have some small seedlings (2-4 pairs of leaves/ 10cm tall) from Bardo's seed giveaway last year. Sorry no pics yet. They could have been bigger but they take 6 months to germinate and have been growing in the takeaway container I germinated them in. That said they are healthy looking and will take off this spring if given some TLC. Please research their growing requirements before accepting the offer. Seedlings will be sent bare rooted, in damp coir, at my leisure (when I get a spare second) NOT TO WA, TAS or OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA, sorry. No payment required, but please consider donating a few dollarydoos to site server costs. First 5 to comment here and PM me their address get the goods. Have at it.

    Seeking a couple of native plant seeds

    Hi all, Looking for Acacia obtusifolia seeds, about 20 - 40 only. Also Smilax glyciphylla (native sarsaparilla) seeds, berries, tubestock, whatever. @mu! (if you're still active on here) saw you were seeking these some time ago - did you ever find any? These both grow nearby but would rather someone's leftover seeds than to take from the bush Happy to pay cash or I have some cactus seeds and other seeds to trade. Thanks!

    Whats wrong with this Loph?

    Looks fungal to me. Has the blight been creeping up from the base? Try Yates anti rot or equivalent.
  9. Hi @Alchemica thanks for the tag. I have been doing OK. I was taking between 300 - 500mg thiamine in the morning with my other medication. Usually 300, but would up it if I felt low or knew I'd have the sort of day that would challenge me. Not sure if it works like that but it seemed to work well for a few months. I'd often wake up happy (unheard of - I get up fairly early for work) and think to myself "what the fuck are you so happy about? " I stopped taking it for whatever reason... I really don't like taking tablets. But it was most likely forgetfulness, and I fell out of the habit. Also my regular GP moved away and the one I auditioned as a replacement doesn't seem to want to work with me to reduce my SSRI dose, in fact he suggested increasing it Since then, quite quickly in hindsight, I fell into a bit of a funk, and was struggling with motivation to do anything other than sleep (ie lay in bed awake) and struggle with interpersonal relationships (more than usual). This thread is a call out for me to get back on the thiamine, I really think it works and going into winter with a history of S.A.D. I think I'll need it. Still need to exercise more and always room for improvement in the diet. I hope you're going well, you certainly seem to work hard at getting better

    Thanks Glaukus, just the information I was after. Just to be clear, these are being grown for flowers (mixed colour seed from big W) Cheers

    Poppin poppies

    Hello! Thinking about my winter garden and I want to get my poppies jumping this year. Previous attempts have had mediocre results with only a couple of plants making it through to flowering. Everything else is growing ok. So, here's what I (think I) know, correct me if I'm wrong: It's about time to sow seeds now. They don't like being transplanted. They seem a bit slow to get going. Plants sort of lay around on the ground abit until they're halfway grown Also after any tips on soil type, ferts, watering etc that you've had success with. I'm on the mid-north coast NSW, growing on basically beach sand amended with some compost. All tips welcome, this will be my third year trying and want to get it right this time. Thanks

    Both photos are of the same plant, quite a large one. You're right, the first picture is fresh growth, the second, older, with flowers. I'll have to dig deeper to fully identify, they are everywhere around my town!
