  1. Could be a chillie
  2. Possibly - but only just... The bigger the vine the more likely to withstand these conditions. I have a 2-3m high caapi ,maximum stem width of approx 2cm, at the edge of a back valley floodplain planted below a native rainforest tree that gets periodic frosting down to a minimum of -2C each winter. All the foliage gets burnt off, but the basal stems survive and re-shoot each winter, re-growing to a bit higher each spring and summer.. This year, the 4th in the ground, the vine has reached about 4m in height and the basal stems are thickening proportionally. I am gunna try more shelter (shade cloth and padding with straw - something not tried previously) in the coming winter to minimise the amount of frost scorch and try to get it a bigger headstart come next spring...
  3. I just read this thread from the start to finish non-stop.. Whoa!!! I have a question for Thunder... How much time do you spend researching these matters?
  4. I met this plant for the first time last weekend, and was told stories about it similar to yours Micro...A most fascinating coincidence because I had never heard of it before. Much respect Alchemica
  5. Yes pachanoi "pc" type. No to rosei
  6. Looks to me very much like carth=alba.. Wavy leaf margins are diagnostic. I can swing you some foliage of various strains of viridis for propagation if needed.
  7. Prolly too cold in Sydney to grow kava without serious supplementary warmth.. And as far as I am aware it doesn't set seed...
  8. Legendary.. Thanks heaps Gimli. love your work..
  9. Are you sure that this plant is viridis?
  10. I would really appreciate some seeds please. Many thanks
  11. Lovely. Is the last photo a painted button-quail?
  12. Scary scary stuff bro - temps reached on the North Coast that I did not think physically possible until beyond about 2040.... Caused major rethink of living and gardening spaces and what can be done to mitigate such extremes.... Lots of shade and water will be needed in order to grow many spp. and to live comfortably.... Have attached a few shots taken around the backyard over the previous few months. 1 = Stephens Banded Snake 2 = Wompoo Fruit Dove (juvenile flew into window but came good) 3 = Golden Crowned Snake 4 = Giant Barred Frog. First 2 are Vulnerable species and the fourth is Endangered Peace
