    Wanted - Mandrake & Cebil seeds

    Hey all I am hunting for some Mandrake seeds (my seed grown are yet to flower) and also some Cebil seed. Not after Yopo, only Cebil. Plenty of seed to trade in return, mostly cacti but some fresh Brugmansia sanguinea seed too.

    Grafts -Photos & Updates

    Nice! Coromandel Cacti is a nursery over here with a number of Trich clones used in crosses like peru, cuzco, pach etc so you might want to check what the mother plant was <3
  7. Hi Ronny and crew Is there a date for the next EGA? Really keen to make the next one. Cheers
  8. Hey Sharxx Don't know if you only want Aussie seed or not. I'm across the ditch and Fathen comes up everywhere here and seed is almost mature now. Have been trying to convince my bosses to try it as they have planted quinoa this year (a relative). Depending on if you want things from overseas it would be my pleasure to send you some when they are mature. Also Sonchus is a commonly eaten weed here with a good nutrient profile. I believe it is a weed in many Aussie states. Can have a clean out of the seed tin and find the other weedy edibles.. Well the ones already present in Australia. peace

    yopo seed pods

    Hey Zelly, any chance that they are Cebil rather than Yopo? Would make sense more with your climate. incognito (no longer active here?) / moon unit botanica harvest yearly from their tree. They are on FB, I can ask them to get in contact if you like?

    Crest from a TBM

    Nice! I would graft in segments and then remove any "normal" tbm growth that appears to promote more of the cristata growth.

    Murray Bridge cuzco, Goliath, Adelaide macro, SG cuzco, YT cuzco, Scop & Yowie X Open Pollinated Almost a year since this seed started getting sent around the world courtesy of Spooge. I can't seem to find any photos, please share if you have some of these genetics growing These were sown 15/8/16 Only a couple grafts, the rest are on their own roots and pretty indistinguishable still. Adelaide macro x OP Murray Bridge cuzcoensis x OP
  17. Inyan, great thread, will be attempting this soon. In the top photo is this B. sanguinea? As stock? I have a lot of B. sanguinea seedlings and wanted to know if I could use them as a stock for the less cold tolerant species.

    I'm back!

    Hey Welcome back, not sure if we talked in the past. I'm in Aotearoa too, but in the South. I keep finding land in Peria when I'm looking for bare land in the Far North. Let me know what it's like living up there.
  23. It's been asked before in the past but quality does seem to change with these. What is everybody using to grow their pereskiopsis and cacti seedlings under lights? LED? CFL? Fluro T8 or T5s? I have a square meter I would like to light artificially, how many watts and what type of light would you use for this? I currently have 2x 35w and 1x 24w CFL cool daylight spectrum to work with. Would this be sufficient? Also, does anyone have experience heating things with a heating cable? Just interested in safety with one of these compared to regular heating mats.
