    Bridgesii nat

    The truth of the story is. Nat is a person. He has grown and given away so many cactus over the years. Alot of those skinny wicked looking bridges he grew from seed and they're all really good plants to have in the garden. Nats a humble guy and is a really awesome grower and isn't a big fan of cactus names, only star ratings. So there really are so many nats. Some have gained particular fame. But the truth is there are no bad ones and if there ever was Nat would woodchipper them for the good of the future genetics of trichocereus. That's probably a four star plant

    Giant pumpkin contest!!

    Ok guys, anyone interested in another giant pumpkin contest this year? Previous years have sorted the wheat from the chaff in the growing world. Sab giant pumpkin growing champion is a very highly regarded title in the plant community and achieving this highest rank can open more doors than joining the masons!. Time to think about getting some seeds and digging in some poop if you keen. Pumpking (notice spelling) contest terms and conditions! 1) no breaking any state or federal laws, but all other pumpkin dopeing, genetic modification, steroids, radioactive laser beams, harrp machines, fetilisers, etc. etc, is ok 2) seeds must be sewed 1st september or later, no soaking before this time. 3) you must grow the pumpkin, not your mum, dad, uncle bob etc, 4) to have a valid entry, you must post picture updates. Winners to receive tie dye pumpkin t shirts made by my wife in any size you like and bragging right for the rest of your life So whos in?

    I reckon if we can all get the same seed from Bunnings then it's pretty fair too

    Pumpkins are a bit old hat anyway. Giant marrows would be kick arse or maybe gourds?

    home made alchol

    awesome mate, well done. it really is a fun hobby. dont be worried about tipping a few runs back in if you miss the heads and tails. you cant really go wrong if your willing to tip it back in and do it again if you need too. Any still really will do the job as long as it dont leak or have steam coming out the condensor end. but if that thermometer isnt that good, maybe replacing that with a good one will help you a lot. After a few runs youll learn to see heads and tails by temperature changes. Let us know how you go

    2015 Australian Perpetual Free Trade Thread

    Hey guys and gurls, lets try the free trade thread again and see how it goes this time. HOw this works is you post somthing, a plant or some seeds etc. To give away to the next poster at your postage cost. By posting you take the offer above you. The next poster claims the offer by saying taken and then posting their offer. This goes on forever. For this to work you really must offer something and come through with posting it. previously this thread has failed due to people failing to post things asking questions breaking into conversations etc. If we all stick to the same format for the posts it makes the thread easy to read. Ill post a few post below so its easy to get the idea. Any questions please pm me *Australia only to keep postage managable and please no posts besides taken with offers* *All trades must be legal and within regular forum rules* Any other questions please pm me

    Variegated Cacti Care

    That was a bargain, well done. I have a couple of variagates and they're just like all of my other trichocereus. They live outside planted in the ground with no protection from the elements at all. However. They are more delicate to sun than the other plants. Trichocereus really need to be acclimatised to new growing conditions slowly. I like to ask the growers how they've been growing the plant? Ie watered regular or relying on rain or even less than rain fall. Full sun or part shade maybe even full sun but under shade cloth or similar. Matching these things help at the start. Then you can adjust slowly to how you'd like to grow.
