  1. They eat dead roots, and decomposing organic matter, but will certainly if a plant is in good health, chew on its lovely root systems. I don't get too many problems with my cacti, but they belt my citrus around every year in pots. 10+ per square meter is a good rule of thumb for them, and the same recommendation for when to attack them chemically when they are present in your lawn. The normal evil bifenthrin ,chlorpyrifos or nicotine mimicking imidacloprid based products work best, but neem is the nicest (all be it the most expensive) way to deal with with em. I just make sure i give all my plants a good watering the night evening before, then the next morning, they will all be hanging within the top 6 inches of soil, where i can normally just dig around like a turkey, and hand remove enough to get them down to bearable numbers. From NSW DPI https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/110213/scarab-grubs-in-northern-tableland-pastures.pdf <--- Some Real good stuff in there "The larvae of the small brownish cockchafers, Sericesthis spp., which have one-year life cycles, are the most important scarab pests of pastures. Larvae of species that have two-year life cycles, including the Christmas beetles, Anoplognathus spp., the large brownish cockchafers, Antitrogus spp. and Rhopaea spp., and the black and greyish brown coloured black soil scarab, Othnonius batesi, are only of occasional concern. Species with two-year life cycles have overlapping generations of larvae, so that larvae can be found in the soil all year round." All I can say is dam those cockchafers!

    RIP andyamine

    Ahhh shit .He was a great person and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. I had the pleasure of meeting him, at the first SAB meet I ever went to, which i held at my own house, and finally got to meet all the great users, who all happened to be better people than those I had known for many years. Up until that day, I only knew them by names such as AndyAmine, Jox, Gollum, Gem etc the list goes on...He was the last to leave Christian was one of the guys (and gals) who cemented my love of this forum, through his love of plants, and shit stirring humour, once you got to know him. Another member (person) gone too soon. I think his constant dedication to his plants and this forum, deserves to be immortalised through the naming of a new clone after him as well. Anyone working with any new genetics? If you are ever down people, make sure you talk about it with people. No one likes to lose a brother or a sister, and im sure everyone on this forum would do all within they're power to cheer up or help a fellow member through a difficult time. Suicide is a permanent fix to a temporary situation, and no point rushing....we all get there eventually. R.I.P Christian.

    Selling lots of plants

    Hey ☽Ţ ҉ĥϋηϠ₡яღ☯ॐ€ðяئॐ♡Pϟiℓℴϟℴ i can assure you he is still around, but not on the Gold Coast anymore. I'll make sure he sees this. C an you PM me with what name you used to go by? Its so hard to keep up with who is who, as im sure i know so many of these guys/girls with high post counts, but just names I don't recognise anymore. Hes much further North these days. Still has a bit of a cactus collection, but very very limited on the ethno side. I'm going to send him a home welcoming present up north in the next couple of weeks. He went through some tough times but is getting back on his feet, and whilst I still get to talk to him, I miss actually catch up with him in person, as his knowledge is only rivalled by his friendliness. On that note anyone know where Myco or Stillman got too?
  11. Hey folks. I have never seen one myself before, but 2 doors down from my house in the Coffs Harbour hinterland, i stumbled upon this little beauty and was hoping for a positive ID. I have no plans on doing anything with it either way, but just wanted to know what it was for posterity. The slightly orange edges of the cap made me think possibly var. persicina, but i'm an absolute beginner when it comes to mycology, so wanted further opinion. Apparently it is becoming invasive, so i'm surprised people aren't seeing them everywhere. This mushy looking bugger was growing in very close proximity to it as well. No idea what it is. Was about 20cm in diameter All were amongst pine needles. Thanks

    5 year old pereskopsis Grafts

    Who says Pere is a temporary stock? These were grafted Oct 2012 as 8 day old seedlings. They look shiny, as i'd just washed off some tomato dust before photographing. The spinosad doesn't seem to have knocked the mealy around at all, and neither has the sulphur, but both chemicals seem to smash the spider mite. I think the pot size is 83mm but dont quote me. This Willamsii var Mazapil was purchased off Watertrade in late 2012 and is still on its original stock, however was cut down, rerooted on a rockwool cube, and then planted back out once roots emerged from the bottom of the rockwool, the stock is about 3 cm long these days. Anyone else out there got ancient pere grafts still cranking?
